Want Fresh Skin that Glows? Microneedling is the Answer

It’s no secret that aging is inevitable, but recent innovations in the world of skin care have made it possible for everyone to maintain youthful skin. One such advancement, and something that everyone can do conveniently at home, is micro needling. In fact, micro needling is becoming more popular day by day and is recommended by beauty gurus and dermatologists across the world.

If you were wondering what your next investment should be when it comes to rejuvenating, maintaining, and beautifying your skin, micro needling is really what you’re after.

How does Micro Needling work?

Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) or skin needling, the principle of micro needling is inserting sterile needles into the skin that create micro tunnels ( microchannels or fractional microchannels) in it, and encourage the production of collagen. As with any other treatment involving needles, skin needling can come with a minimal level of discomfort. Sometimes a numbing gel is applied before the procedure to ease the pinching feeling. It's recommended to follow up with several additional procedures a few weeks after the initial one in order to reap the full benefits of micro needling.

The procedure isn’t just for the face area. It can be used on many other areas of the body, including arms, legs, neck, abdomen, back, and hands. The result is improved texture and firmness of the skin wherever the procedure is applied.

A non-invasive procedure with multiple benefits

Skin needling treatments are incredibly safe and by far healthier than any other method of collagen boosting. While the procedure does use needles, it doesn't, in fact, damage the epidermis at all, which makes it far less invasive than Botox and laser treatments. Collagen induction therapy can have great effects on ageing signs, crow's feet and chicken pox scars.

It can also be very efficient in removing acne scars, large pores or even treating very small wrinkles and skin deformations. Scar tissues are the result of an abnormal formation of collagen. By breaking up the old tissues over the course of a few skin needling treatments, you can stimulate elastin and collagen production which diminishes the scars. As a matter of fact, it even prevents premature skin aging.

A growing number of men and women are turning towards microneedling due to high levels of satisfaction with this form of treatment. Users continually rank it as one of the safest and healthiest procedures to ensure freshness and youthfulness of the skin!

Microneedling and melasma: delivering successful patient solution

We are pleased to announce the Published Double Peer Reviewed Article by Dr Andrew R. Christie in "Journal of Aesthetic Nursing" (JOAN) Magazine on the subject "Microneedling and melasma: delivering successful patient solutions"

What’s It About?


This innovative paper explores the aetiology and pathophysiology of melasma. Learn about the melanogenesis process and how micro needling can promote re-balance and regulation. This in-depth article further assesses why micro needling is so effective for this recalcitrant condition and how the application of topical pigment blockers can further enhance treatment outcomes. Clinical studies from Brazil, Italy and Australia prove treatment success and patient satisfaction.
Why It Is Important?


Recalcitrant melasma is arguably one of the most challenging indications for treatment by aesthetic practitioners. This innovative paper looks to micro needling as an uncommon, but highly successful patient solution. By contrast with many other modalities, micro needling offers safe and effective treatment parameters and protocols without thermolysis or ablation of the skin. This enables safe treatment on all Fitzpatrick skin types and heritages. Micro needling furthermore offers a longer term management of the condition via the release of regulatory growth factors to treat the very source of the issue. Treatment is fast, affordable and comfortable for the patient with no major downtime.


As a micro needling expert, I have seen phenomenal success with the treatment and long term management of melasma. All of my patients report visual correction of this condition upon completion of a treatment programme. Because there is no heat produced during a micro needling procedure and the epidermis remains in-tact, this is a risk-free procedure suitable for all ethnicities. There is no skin I have come across which has not been eligible for such treatment. I encourage patients to enahnce and maintain results with the daily application of topical pigment blockers and sunscreen.

Infusion Of Active Substances With Micro-Needling

Creating Procedural Safety By Dr. Andrew R. Christie

Here is a snippet from the article:

Whilst the moral of these stories may appear to be “watch what you inject into the skin”, the reality is much more complex with far greater consequences to be considered.

When Things Go Wrong

All too frequently we come across industry ‘disaster stories’ where a patient’s face or body has been injected with some product which quite simply was not designed for that purpose. Consider Rajee Narinesingh, whose face was injected with cement and tyre sealant. What resulted from a black market ‘plumping party’ she had attended in 2005 were heavy, rock-hard, dried cement nodules permanently embedded in her cheeks.


Monique Allen had over 12 litres of liquid plastic and silicone injected into her body in around 75 backstreet operations. Allen claimed, “the doctor would numb you then attach a funnel to whichever part of your body you wanted, then screw a vial of silicone on and pump it in”. Over the years, the silicone has migrated around her body, rendering her permanently disabled, with patches of disfiguring skin necrosis and ongoing infections.


Such scenarios, however, are not just limited to the lower socio-economic or blackmarkets, consider Daniel Tomas Fuente, an unlicensed medical practitioner in the USA (though a doctor in his native Argentina) who was operating an injectables clinic out of the bathroom of Lionel Richie’s then wife. His injection of unapproved “anti-wrinkle” cocktails into his celebrity clientele, resulted in a bevy of complications, including nodules affecting facial movement and what one patient described as permanent “holes” in their face around the site of injection. Dr Daniel’s patient’s included Diane Richie, Priscilla Presley and Shawn King (the wife of Larry King).


The relationship between injections and micro-needling substances into the skin is far closer than many of us may think....
