There is now a revolutionary approach to anti-ageing through stimulation of natural processes. This technique is referred to as percutaneous collagen induction needling.
This process of needling involves using a roller with different size needles attached to its surface. The roller is then rolled onto the surface of the skin several times.
The aim of the technique is to cause microscopic breaks in the blood vessels deep below the surface layer of the skin. The needle only penetrates through the top layer of the skin and does not remove it. The end result is a small cleft which heals rapidly, with no residual scarring. The injury, minute as it may appear, does cause temporary localized damage and bleeding.
Percutaneous induction of collagen results from the natural response to wounding the skin. The skin responds to microtrauma by forming small blood clots. A series of growth factors are released, which promote the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. This is responsible for providing the tensile strength to the skin and treating damaged or scar tissue. This all happens at a microscopic level and manifests on the surface of the skin, as a much tighter and smoother appearance.
Needling has been used for acne scars, keloid
scarring, pigmentation marks, stretch marks and as an anti-ageing procedure to soften deep lines and wrinkles.
A natural response is induced
· Healing process is minimal (3 to 7 days)
· Treatment is an office procedure and is suited to all skin types
· No scarring is caused.
· Safely repeatable for maximum results
· No additional sun-sensitivity is induced
· All areas of the face, neck and body can be treated.
