Much loved by Angelina Jolie, Madonna and many other Hollywood stars, Skin Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy) is the latest skin renewal treatment to restore the healthy youthful appearance of your skin and reduce scarring.
Compared with other procedures, there is no downtime and no scarring - just great results. Skin Needling is also one of the few skin therapies suitable for treating all skin types, including darker skins and it can be used to treat the fragile skin around the eyes, mouth and on the neck.
So, just what is skin needling?
The concept of Skin Needling is based on the skin’s 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 our body reuses the damaged collagen and elastin fibres as well as other damaged skin components to produce new ones.
Skin Needling initiates a controlled induction of the skin’s self repair mechanism by creating micro-‘injuries’ in the skin which trigger new collagen synthesis, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. The healing time is short and there is no post-treatment skin sensitivity to UV light. Your skin will be back to normal within a few days and visible signs of skin rejuvenation are seen after just 6-8 weeks and continue for up to a year. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin.
The treatment can be used to alleviate various skin conditions such as acne scarring (as seen on Channel 4's Embarrassing Bodies), fine lines, enlarged pores, hyper-pigmentation or just improving skin radiance, without the expense or downtime of more invasive treatments such as deep peels or surgery.
How is the treatment administered?
Skin Needling procedures are performed in a very safe and accurate manner with the use of sterile single-use Boston Medical Group Dermal Roller. The procedure is normally complete within 45 minutes, but should always be practiced by an appropriately trained professional at an approved salon or clinic.
