What is Skin Needling?
Skin Needling, also often referred to as micro-needling, adopts the amazing ability of our skin to self-repair after sustaining physical damage. After suffering trauma like burns, cuts or tears, a cascade of healing mechanisms is activated and one of the most significant results is the triggering of new collagen synthesis. Collagen is the scaffolding for skin texture, elasticity, and firmness.
After a thorough cleanse and application of a topical numbing cream, a sterile needle head is used to penetrate the top layer of your skin. This process creates micro-channels of punctual “injuries”, resulting in inducing a natural healing process and stimulation of new collagen formation. It is a safe procedure applied in a focused manner, taking about 45 minutes.
Immediately after completing your session, your skin will be red, slightly swollen and feeling somewhat tight and tender. This will significantly improve within the first 24 hours but might take 2-3 days to get back to a fully comfortable state. For up to a week, you might notice a sun burn like redness which usually fades and returns back to normal rather quickly. As part of the rejuvenation process, a lot of dry cells from the top layer of your skin will be removed, adding to the treated area feeling a bit tender and being more vulnerable for UV ray exposure. It is therefore vital to moisturise well, to apply sunscreen and to avoid direct sun exposure for a good week after your treatment.
Skin Needling has been shown to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, skin imperfections and scarring by activation of the skin remodelling process. Effects observed are smoother and firmer skin, improved skin tone and texture, leaving your skin looking younger and fresher. Results are usually visible within 6 weeks once the dermal remodelling process has started. It is recommended to have 2-3 treatments about 4-6 weeks apart to ensure sufficient collagen stimulation, followed by regular maintenance sessions depending on the individual response.
