How Skin Needling Works

The Benefits of Skin Needling

Skin needling is a facial skin treatment that has a very good reputation to rejuvenate the skin on various levels. It is performed with a revolutionary skin-needling pen device, and also known as Micro-needling, Collagen induction, Derma-roller, or Derma-pen treatments. This treatment addresses age-related issues such as cellular functionality and visually improves skin firmness, wrinkle depth, and skin texture. It also refines the size of the pores on the treated area for better cosmetic product absorption and penetration. Skin needling is very effective for treating stretch marks and scars on the skin. It is safe to use in delicate areas of the face, including the areas around the eyes, on the lips, and on the nose.

The depth of the needle penetrating the skin can be adjusted in accordance to your personal treatment needs. Therefore, you can expect more efficient treatment results as it can be tailored to your skin specifically. Although skin needling sounds like a very daunting type of elective cosmetic treatment, the results will speak for themselves. It induces and promotes elastin and collagen production in the skin. As a result, you will have a feasible option for treating damaged or scarred areas on the chin and underneath the eyes. This treatment is also effective on the neck area and can address acne scarring and pigmentation issues.

How Does Skin Needling Work?

A layer of skin tissue is present directly underneath the surface of the skin. Advanced skin-needling technology utilises multiple needles to vertically penetrate the skin with an automatic vibrating action. These penetrating vibrations stimulate collagen production in the treated area, while creating very fine channels in the skin to allow for better treatment delivery to damaged areas. Collagen is the main structural protein in the various connective tissues in mammals. It is also the main component of connective tissues, being most prominent in fibrous tissues such as tendons, ligaments, and the skin.

The concept of skin needling is to trick the skin tissue into repairing itself by stimulating collagen production in the treated area. Since the treatment also penetrates the skin, we recommend that you actively apply treatment creams that contain vitamin A and vitamin C over a period before the treatment. This will allow the skin to build up strength to deal with the penetrating needles. We also recommend the continuation of applying these creams for 6 weeks after the treatment. Since your skin will be more receptive afterwards, the vitamin A and vitamin C will be absorbed much easier and have better results.
