Skin needling is administering controlled injury to the skin to induce collagen production.  When causing the right form of injury, the dermis reacts to the trauma by repairing itself, generating new collagen & elastin, resulting in a rejuvenated appearance. Also known as microneedling, collagen induction therapy, dermal needling or percutaneous collagen induction

What is  Skin Needling?
A very simple skin regenerative treatment which improves and rejuvenates the skin.  It is also called skin needling, micro-needling, collagen induction therapy.  It is a minimally-invasive non-surgical and non-ablative procedure for facial rejuvenation that involves the use of a micro-needling device to create controlled skin injury.

As each fine needle punctures the skin, it creates a channel or micro-wound. The controlled injury triggers the body to fill these micro-wounds by producing new collagen and elastin in the papillary dermis. In addition, new capillaries are formed. This neo-vascularisation and neo-collagenases following treatment leads to reduction of scars and skin rejuvenation, i.e. improved skin texture, firmness and hydration.

Pen Needling is effective at: 

  • Improving fine lines and deep wrinkles
  • Skin tightening, lifting and rejuvenation
  • Increasing the epidermis by up to 40%; resulting in a fresher look
  • Improving acne scars and wound healing
  • Improving skin texture, tone and colour
  • Improving pigmentation
  • Minimising pore size
  • Fading stretch marks
  • Improving collagen-elastin structure
  • Normalising TEWL and moisture retention in scars
  • Stimulating development of new blood vessels
