Micro needling also known as collagen induction therapy is a cosmetic procedure that creates controlled micro-injuries to the skin which stimulates the body’s natural collagen production by generating a wound healing response, this results in a thicker more even epidermis. It also creates micro channels which allow sterile active ingredients to be absorbed more effectively enhancing the effects and penetration into deeper layers of the skin
Just a few sessions of micro needling will noticeably reduce fine lines, crow’s feet, and deep wrinkles on the forehead. For most wrinkles or stretch marks on the body, depending on the severity, you may need 4 to 8 micro needling treatments to achieve optimal skin–tightening results
Micro needling successfully treats scarring, stretch marks, ageing skin; this safe procedure isn’t just for the face, though. It can also be used on many areas of the body, including the arms, neck, legs, abdomen, back and hands. We can customize micro needling to the desires of each patient.
First, an anaesthetic cream is applied before micro needling this is left to take effect for 30 minutes. The micro needling process typically takes less than 30 minutes, and afterward, your skin will be somewhat red, similar to sunburn. It takes a couple of days for skin to get back to normal, with results gradually becoming apparent. Natural collagen growth happens over weeks and months, so it isn’t an instant fix, but your skin will be much improved over the long term. To ensure the safety of your skin, treatments are usually spaced out three weeks to a month apart.
