This is a very popular skin rejuvenation modality and has been shown to enhance and improve skin complexion via activation of the skin’s natural regenerative processes which stimulates collagen synthesis. With expert precision, technique and timing, your qualified skin therapist uses a medical microneedling device to trigger growth factors for building new collagen.
Very tiny needles are used to penetrate the top layer of the skin vertically causing localised and controlled damage without substantially affecting the structure of the epidermis. The creation of controlled microchannels in the skin instigates the regeneration of skin cells via a natural process of healing. awakening the broblast that lies within the deeper layers of the skin, healthy collagen is naturally produced.
The gentle stimulus provided by medical microneedling is considered far more effective than many other more invasive and expensive skincare treatments. Skin conditions that benefit from medical needling include: acne scarring, fine lines & wrinkles, uneven skin tone & texture and enlarged pores.
Visible results are evident five to eight weeks after the treatment. However, one of the most exciting things about medical microneedling is that after a course of treatments, your results will continue to improve over the next 12 months as the new collagen and elastin settles, strengthens and rejuvenates your skin from within.
Before committing to any dermal or microneedling procedure, please make sure your skin therapist is qualified, does a thorough consultation to determine your skin’s suitability, explains to you what happens during the treatment, guides you on the before and after care, works in a sterile eld during the treatment and, most important of all, uses a medical device approved by Medsafe NZ or the Australian TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) as medical devices approved by these authorities would need to have gone through clinical trials to confirm safety and efficacy.
