Re-model scarred uneven skin, induce thicker healthier skin.
Studies have shown that when the skin is injured, the body’s response to any injury releases cellular growth mediators that result in skin repair and increased cellular turnover. The response also naturally causes the increased production of structural substances such as collagen. This new injury gives the skin a chance to remodel older scar tissue and also leads to a healthier, thicker skin which refines the wrinkled appearance of aging.
Many appearance medicine practitioners have designed treatments to take similar advantage of stimulating the body’s natural cellular repair mechanisms. For example, chemical peels, laser treatments and RF skin-tightening all ‘injure’ the skin in some way and then induce this response. It has been the aim to balance the treatment to have a good effect without causing any unwanted damage: that is to stimulate the skin without undue injury. It has been discovered that multiple tiny injuries are one of the best ways to induce this cellular response without adverse effect. Rolling the skin with tiny controlled length needle rollers can effectively achieve an amazing effect. The injury is well controlled by the technique and can be tailored to suit your needs. Lighter home treatments can be performed daily and more aggressive treatment can also be performed in-house at clinics by trained professionals. Improvement can be expected in aging skin, fine wrinkles, acne scarring, stretch marks and open pores. Results will vary between individuals and cannot be guaranteed in any way.
Help Penetration of Skin Products
Many active skin care ranges are dependent on their therapeutic nutrients penetrating through the natural barrier put up by the skin. With needling, after application, penetration through the top layers of the skin is much easier with claims that the topical application can penetrate up to 4000% more than by just leaving it on the skin. Care has to be exercised because of the increased penetration and it is advisable to start with a lower percentage of active products. Do not experiment and always ask your practitioner prior to use as to what actives you can use.
Needling is commonly used in reducing the appearance of fine wrinkling/aged skin. It helps reduce the appearance of stretch marks and scars, including trauma, dog bite, surgical, acne, ice-pick and chicken pox scars. It can be used in all areas of the body and is safe on all skin types including darker skins.
