Needling systems are used for a treatment process called micro-needling or skin-needling. It is a form of collagen induction therapy, quickly gaining popularity in the USA, UK and Europe. Unlike other treatments for acne scars, stretch marks and wrinkles, skin needling systems do not damage the skin or remove the epidermis layer.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Medical Micro-Needling?
For skin micro-needling, we use an electric skin needling device made especially for this purpose. The device is a pen shaped studded with 12 very fine needles. It is a medical device used in micro needling to break down old scar tissue and to stimulate skin cells to proliferate. This cell multiplication results in the formation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers as well as in new capillaries for an improved blood supply.
What conditions can be treated or improved with Medical Micro-Needling?
Mild to moderate acne scarring; any new or old scars
Fine lines and wrinkles;
Loose, lax skin;
Skin texture and pore size
How does Medical Micro-Needling work?
The device slides along the skin, penetrating the upper layers of the skin to a depth of up to 2mm to create numerous tiny needle wounds. The procedure prompts the body to respond through the creation of new collagen and elastin fibers. In response to the stimulus, the skin plumps and thickens, reducing the appearance of scars, and fine lines and wrinkles.
What effects does the Medical Micro-Needling have on the skin?
improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of wrinkles
stimulates tissue regeneration
disfiguring scars, especially acne scars can be improved as new collagen fibers elevate the depressed scar tissue with the periphery skin
pore size reduction
improves the appearance of stretch marks
