What is Micro Needle Therapy?

Microneedle therapy or Collagen Induction is a non-ablative procedure that aims to deliver skin rejuvenation results by creating controlled injuries on the superficial layer of the skin. Skin experts claim that derma needling outperforms the more traditional skin rejuvenation therapies such as chemical peels, laser resurfacing and platelet rejuvenate plasma injections among many others.

Does skin needling really work?

Microneedling makes use of a handheld device such as Dermapen which creates microscopic injuries on the topmost layer of the skin which prompts the platelets within the blood vessels to cover the exposed skin tissues. The release of platelets triggers a series of processes starting with the production of growth factors and hormones. This is followed by stimulation of collagen producing cells and fibroblasts. The increased production of fibroblasts, collagen and elastin results in more elastic, smooth and rejuvenated skin.

Microneedling Before and After Results

Skin needling is performed in a clinical environment and is facilitated by a trained skin professional. The needle depth used ranges between 0.5 mm for minor skin issues and up to 3mm for diminished pitted scars.

To get the best micro needling before and after results, skin experts recommend combining this procedure with skin peels and skin vitamin infusions.
