Skin Needling Review

My friends keep asking what I've had done as I look years younger! The word is out, on how Skin Needling which is also referred to as Micro-Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy Is changing the Game.

It’s no secret that ageing is inevitable; recent medical breakthroughs have made it so that patients can now slow down the natural aging process and maintain their youthful look. In the past, anti-aging techniques meant surgery in some cases, which is useful. However, it comes with invasive incisions and lengthy recovery times.

Botox and fillers also come into play to provide subtle enhancements to the skin, but require ongoing touch-up appointments, as the injections are only temporary.

It's trending in 2019 that women do not wish to opt-in for surgery and are hesitant to deal with the constant maintenance required for injectable treatments; yet, they still desire a remedy for younger-looking skin.

The natural solution is Skin Needling. It is non-invasive, no downtime, and no injections – only the patient’s natural collagen-building process is started that works to heal the skin and reduce wrinkles and imperfections that we attribute to aging skin.

Skin Needling is completely changing how therapists and patients view anti-aging treatment, and it is steadily taking the cosmetic industry by storm.

What is Skin Needling?

Skin Needling is a treatment that works to improve the texture and tone of the skin. The actual device consists of small needles that you glide over the epidermal layer (outer layer of skin) to create microscopic punctures into the skin, stimulating collagen and elastin production — also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy.

The small microchannels created in the skin by micro-needling also allows for topical anti-aging product-(serums) to be infused which penetrate deeper into the layers of the dermis. The therapist's ability to adjust the levels of penetration to suit the area of skin being treated. With micro-needling treatment areas such as can be the face, neck, decolletage, stomach, stretch marks and hands

Popularity Is rapidly Climbing!

Although many patients may not understand the procedure of micro-needling, there is a good chance they have at least heard of this emerging treatment, with its ever-increasing presence on online platforms.

It’s a trendy buzzword that has exceeded the expectations of therapists and patients alike, and we believe it is here to stay.

You can return to your normal daily routine as soon as they leave our clinic. Additionally, with micro-needling, it only requires the body’s natural healing properties to rejuvenate and renew the skin as opposed to injectable treatments, which merely mask imperfections for a short period.

Treatments such as Laser also don’t compare since micro-needling involves no heat and therefore no risk of skin pigmentation.

Skin Needling makes skin healthier by boosting collagen levels, and patients can continue to see results from their Skin Needling therapy over time, we recommended that more than one treatment is needed, depending on the outcome required by the patient.

Skin Needling is changing the anti-aging game!
