smoother, thicker, tighter, even toned skin
Small needles penetrate into the skin, break up old collagen strands and stimulate the production of elastin fibers oriented from the deep layers of the dermis to the surface.
As each fine needle punctures the skin, it creates a channel or micro-wound. The controlled injury triggers the body to fill these micro-wounds by producing new collagen and elastin in the dermis along with new capillaries. Collagen Induction a.k.a Micro Needling treatment leads to reduction of scars and skin rejuvenation, i.e., improved skin texture, firmness and hydration.
Collagen Induction Therapy is referred to as a non ablative skin treatment. This means that the deeper parts of the skin are treated without removing the top layer of skin. It is designed to treat various skin conditions such as fine lines and wrinkles, light scarring from acne and photodamage, and to improve skin colour and other skin texture changes.
Collagen Induction Therapy can be carried out safely on all types of skin and all skin colors. Sensitive areas – such as around the eyes, the neck and the backs of the hands, can also be treated.
Aggressive laser treatments and chemical peels, over time thin our epidermis and decrease our dermal papillae which results in inflamed, drier and more wrinkled skin.
Professional skin needling is considered to be one of the safest skin treatment procedures. Unlike chemical peels, dermabrasion and laser treatments, skin needling causes minimal damage to the skin.
