Raise your hand if you want younger, fresher looking skin? Really, we don’t even need to ask. After all, who doesn’t want more radiant, beautiful-looking skin?
No matter how good you are at remembering to cleanse and moisturise, sometimes skin just needs a boost to get it back to its best. Needling can be that little push your skin needs to wake up from its winter slumber and welcome in spring. Read on to discover more about this effective treatment and its amazing benefits.
What is Skin Needling?
As collagen production naturally decreases with age, keeping your skin firm, smooth, and free from fine lines and wrinkles can become increasingly difficult. Thankfully, skin needling is a secret weapon in this fight against ageing and can help you turn back the clock on your skin.
Also known as collagen induction therapy, skin needling is a cosmetic procedure designed to enhance collagen production for smoother, more radiant skin. The renewal technique restores your complexion to a healthy, more youthful appearance.
The non-surgical process uses a Dermapen, which features hundreds of tiny needles that gently make minuscule pin pricks in the skin’s surface. These small punctures stimulate cell regeneration to boost your complexion.
How Does Skin Needling Work?
Needling harnesses the skin’s natural ability to heal itself. The treatments triggers this process by creating micro-injuries in the skin. When the skin is lightly injured, your body responds by replacing damaged collagen and elastin fibres with new cells, resulting in younger, fresher-looking skin.
Ideal for use on the face, decolletage, and stomach, skin needling is a quick, non-surgical procedure that offers long-lasting results and no risk of scarring. The process is suitable for most skin types.
Following a skin needling treatment, our expert therapists will apply topical serums to enhance the benefits. These serums, which can deeply penetrate the skin thanks to the needling, offer improved results. Once applied, leave on your skin overnight for maximum effect.
Skin Needling Benefits
Skin needling offers many benefits, including enhancing collagen production for a complexion that appears more youthful. You can expect smoother, firmer, and more radiant skin. It can also help to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and those pesky crow’s feet.
Apart from the excellent anti-ageing benefits, skin needling can decrease hyperpigmentation and scarring, including those from acne and chickenpox. If you’ve tried topical treatments without success, skin needling is a great noninvasive option.
For the best result, we recommend a course of six skin needling treatments, two to six weeks apart.
Post Treatment Care
After receiving a skin needling treatment, it’s important to care for your skin correctly to ensure the best results.
The day after your treatment, cleanse your skin to wash away the serums. Be sure to use a gentle and antibacterial foaming cleanser, such as Environ’s Sebuwash, for a soothing effect. Afterwards, apply any serums or creams your therapist has recommended to you. Twenty-four hours after treatment, you can begin wearing mineral makeup and SPF.
