The Rising Popularity of Skin Needling
Skin Needling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is an exciting new therapy that offers transformative results. Skin Needling can reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and scars while improving your overall skin texture.
Skin Needling is effective for all skin types and can treat areas of your face, neck, hands, and décolletage.
Are you looking for a treatment that will turn back the clock and leave you looking refreshed? Here’s what you should know about the rising popularity of skin needling.
What Is Skin Needling?
Medical Skin Needling is a highly specialised treatment that can only be done in a clinic by a professional. While you will find at-home skin needling devices, it’s essential to know that not all treatments are the same.
The results of Skin Needling will vary significantly based on the needle gauge and length. The amount of physically pressure applied to the skin needling device is also one of the defining characteristics of a treatment. When done at home by an untrained person, the results are unpredictable.
What Is It Like to Get Skin Needling?
When you come to the Medispa Institute in Dee Why for a Skin Needling procedure, an anaesthetic cream will be applied to the treatment area. A medical grade Skin Needling Roller is then applied to the area with enough pressure to get through the upper layer of skin.
Following the procedure, your skin will be sensitive and you may feel like you have a mild sunburn for a few hours but any minor discomfort will pass by the next day.
Depending on your skin types and goals, you can expect between one to three Skin Needling treatments.
How Does Skin Needling Work?
When the top layer of skin is punctuated, a micro level of wounding is created. When this happens, your body goes into overdrive to begin healing your skin. At this point, natural growth factors go to work to thicken and tighten the skin, which causes scar reduction and leaves you with a fresh layer of skin.
The controlled skin injuries created by Skin Needling are designed to refresh your skin. Every micro puncture created in the process triggers your body to heal these invisible wounds with new collagen and elastin. Of course, the creation of new collagen and elastin is the foundation for gorgeous skin. Once this happens, you will see a dramatic improvement your skin texture and firmness, pore size, scarring, and stretch marks.
What Does Skin Needling Do?
Skin Needling can be an amazing treatment for men and women with a wide range of concerns. From wrinkles and sun damaged skin to acne scarring to post pregnancy stretch marks to uneven skin texture, this can be a great option.
