Skin Needling Treatment
Skin needling treatment, also known as microneedling or collagen induction therapy, is a popular cosmetic procedure that aims to rejuvenate the skin by stimulating collagen production and enhancing its overall texture and appearance. This minimally invasive procedure involves the use of a specialised device with fine needles that create controlled micro-injuries on the skin's surface.Book an Appointment
About Skin Needling Treatment
Skin needling treatment involves the use of a derma roller or a derma pen, which contains multiple fine needles. These needles create tiny punctures or microchannels on the skin's surface, stimulating the body's natural healing response. The controlled micro-injuries trigger the production of collagen and elastin, two essential proteins responsible for maintaining the skin's elasticity and youthful appearance. As a result, the skin becomes firmer, smoother, and more radiant over time.
Procedure of Skin Needling Treatment
During the procedure, a dermatologist punctures the skin using a device that has fine surgical needles, creating controlled micro-injuries. As these injuries heal, the body produces capillaries, collagen, and elastin that reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. The procedure is known as collagen induction therapy (CIT) or percutaneous collagen induction (PCI).
This procedure can benefit virtually any adult and is safe for all skin colors and types. While you may be able to find derma rollers online or at the drugstore, they won’t deliver the same effects as a professional. Devices from these sources can have contact with the skin at several different angles, causing more damage to the skin. Clinicians can customize the procedure to your needs with adjustable needle lengths. Needle cartridges are disposed of after the procedure.
At the microneedling appointment, the clinician will cleanse the skin and apply a numbing cream to the area being treated. The patient may feel a small amount of discomfort during the procedure, but the cream helps to minimize pain. The patient may experience pinkness and skin tightness similar to sunburn, but there is no downtime after the procedure.
