Skin Micro Needling

What Is A Micro Needling Treatment?

Micro Needling, also referred to as collagen induction therapy stimulates the body’s defences to repair itself naturally. Micro needling is quickly becoming the go-to treatment to encourage collagen production, treat acne scarring, reduce pigmentation spots and rejuvenate your skin. This revolutionary treatment has become popular with celebrities looking to reduce wrinkles and rejuvenate their skin.

How does micro needling work?

Micro needling stimulates the skin into naturally repairing and regenerating itself, resulting in younger looking skin. More effective and longer lasting than botox, it is no surprise people are choosing to undergo this type of treatment!

A series of little needles penetrate the skin, causing hundreds of micro injuries to the skin. This stimulates the body’s natural defences, repairing the treated area and increasing the skin’s thickness. This visibly reduces the appearance of wrinkles, with the ability to smooth scarring left behind from acne.

Is it similar to laser therapy?

Many people get laser therapy and micro needling a little mixed up! Micro needling however, replaces laser therapy for acne scarring and stretch marks, avoiding the risk of hypo-pigmentation and a long downtime. Where this treatment really shines is its ease to fit in around your schedule, with no need to change your day to day plans! By helping to boost the development of collagen, this treatment is completely natural and safe, with no risk of you being left with a frozen, fake looking face!

The number of sessions depends on each individual. This is where we will advise on the best solution to suit your needs.

Hyper-pigmentation is caused by an increase in melanin, the substance in the body that is responsible for colour (pigment).

Hypo-pigmentation is the result of a reduction in melanin production.
