Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or digital skin needling, is a minimally invasive, non- surgical procedure for facial or general skin rejuvenation that involves the use of a Microneedling device to create controlled micro-channels causing micro trauma in the skin.
The body is a very clever thing, and when it experiences a trauma or injury it immediately uses all its resources to fix the problem. Microneedling uses this incredible healing mechanism to tackle a variety of skin issues that your body didn’t even know was there such as signs of ageing, pigmentation and scars.
The Microneedling device contains a number of extremely fine needles which puncture the skin and creates a micro trauma. The controlled injury triggers the body to fix these micro-wounds by producing new collagen and elastin in the deeper layers of the skin. However, it doesn’t stop there! It also forms new capillaries, which drastically increases nutritional flow within your skin and the free collagen-formation leads to skin rejuvenation, improving skin texture, firmness and hydration and an overall reduction in the appearance of scars.
If you suffer from pigmentation problems or age spots you can also benefit from Microneedling as the production of melanin is also stimulated and helps to restore the original colour of the skin.
As the body starts to heal the micro traumas, scar tissue is broken down and the original texture of the skin can be restored.
