Micro Needling, also known as Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy, is a mildly invasive skin treatment that uses tiny needles to lightly
puncture the skin; this triggers a ‘healing’ response from your body, which boosts collagen and elastin levels in the area and increases skin cell renewal.
Micro Needling can also improve the appearance, texture, and colour of a variety of scars, burns, and stretch marks, including surgery, scars, self-harm scars and acne scarring; it also increases the mobility of tight or thickened scarring by relaxing and softening the tissue .
Micro Needling is also a great treatment to improve the quality of scar tissue and skin in preparation for a tattoo.
Here is a quick video from Tanya explaining the benefits of Micro Needling scars.
Micro Needling can also be used to treat a number of other skin concerns, and has become an increasingly popular alternative to botox and fillers. Loved by many celebrities for its almost instant results, as well as
long lasting effects, Micro Needling facials have taken the beauty industry by storm and is quickly becoming a must have for your skin care routine.
Micro Needling has wide variety of skin health benefits
– Anti Ageing – fine lines and wrinkles are reduced, skin is plumper.
– Dull/Tired Skin – specially designed serums are infused
into the skin leaving
it rejuvenated and hydrated.
– Scarring – including acne scarring, chicken pox scars and
stretch marks are
improved and reduced.
– Larges pores and uneven skin texture – pores are visibly reduced and skin is smoother.
– Pigmentation – can help fade sun damage and
– Increases absorption of skin products – the tiny ‘entry
holes’ made from the
micro needling allow products to absorb into the deep layers
of the skin.
Unlike more invasive treatments, such as some laser and
chemical peel treatments, Micro
Needling does not cause high levels of trauma to skin, which
can result in hyper or hypo
pigmentation, making it suitable for all skin types and a
perfect choice for darker skin.
