This treatment prompts the natural release of the skin’s collagen and elastin for amazing anti-aging benefits, all without surgery.
As we age, the natural production of the skin’s supporting cells, fibroblasts, and the skin’s collagen and elastin, naturally diminish leading to wrinkles, sagging and hollows. Stimulating the skin to produce more fibroblasts, collagen and elastin is called collagen induction therapy and is used as an alternative to facelifts and other surgical anti aging interventions.
This type of skin needling collagen induction therapy can be used for:
- Skin tightening, lifting and rejuvenation
- Acne scars and wound healing
- Improvement in wrinkles and fine lines
- Stretch marks
- Minimise pore size
Dermal Needling with a vertical derma-pen takes this effective collagen induction therapy to the next level, giving amazing results with less damage, less pain and less recovery time.
We do not offer the older derma-roller device as these penetrate the skin at an angle, meaning they cause more damage, and is difficult to use on scar tissue and on facial curves.
The micro needles on the derma-pen penetrate vertically, solving all these issues while still providing an excellent therapeutic result. Plus, the automatic vibrating function increases the effectiveness of the treatment by increasing the absorption of serums, while reducing pain and discomfort.
Dermal needling is just as effective as ablative skin rejuvenation treatments such as fraxel, IPL, laser resurfacing and chemical peels, but without the significant costs or extended recovery time.
The device penetrates the skin from 20 to 90 times per second with an adjustable speed, and from a .25mm to 1mm depth, depending on the area being treated.
Skin needling is undertaken with minimal discomfort. Anaesthetic cream can be used prior, and the benefits can be life changing from those suffering from prominent acne or other scarring.
