The tiny needles are used to puncture the skin to create a controlled skin injury. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the body to produce collagen and elastin to fill these microscopic wounds. Skin needling and the production of collagen for skin has been successful in treating:
- Fine lines and wrinkles;
- Acne and surgical scarring; and
- Stretch marks and cellulite.
The treatment has also been shown to overall improve skin texture and firmness. As any credible skin needling ‘before and after’ photograph will demonstrate, the treatment gives an overall more youthful appearance to ageing skin.
