Collagen induction therapy, or Skin Needling is the newest skin renewal technique for restoring a healthy, youthful appearance to the skin. The principle of skin needling is based in the skin's natural ability to repair itself.
MySkin Laser Clinics employ Dermapen for induction of the skin's self repair mechanism by creating micro-injuries in the skin triggering new elastin fibre and collagen synthesis. The result is smoother, firmer, younger looking skin without risk of scarring. Skin needling does not remove the healthy epidermis.
The results of skin needling are quick, inexpensive, long lasting and suitable for most skin types and concerns including lack of;
loss of firmness,
folds and crows' feet,
This also includes improvement of indented scars from acne or chicken pox.
How does it work?
The concept of skin needling is based on the skins natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, burns and other abrasions.
Immediately after an injury occurs to the skin, the body reuses the damaged collagen and elastin fibers as well as other damaged skin components to produce new ones.
Skin needling allows for controlled induction of the skins self repair mechanism by creating micro – injuries in the skin which triggers new collagen synthesis, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin!
