Acne Scar Removal – Skin Needling
Skin Needling is an exciting new treatment which has been shown to:
· Smooth Wrinkles and fill deep lines
· Improve Skin Texture
· Relax Scars
· Improve depressed Acne Scarring
· Improve the appearance of Stretch Marks
· Fill old surgical scars
Skin Needling is also known as Facial Mesotherapy or Collagen Induction Therapy. It has similar results to Laser, Chemical Peels and Dermabrasion but is far less invasive, which translates to a far lower risk of complications and quick recovery time. Improvement in the appearance of scars and lines is achieved through a series of Skin Needling treatments, spaced 2-3 months apart.
Skin Needling and Facial Mesotherapy is most easily performed using a Skin Roller. The Skin Roller causes multiple tiny pin point puncture wounds to the dermis. This dermal damage induces the release of growth factors that stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin.
New collagen production is the object of ALL skin resurfacing and rejuvenation treatments.
Skin Needling creates dermal damage without the removal of the healthy epidermis, which happens with other resurfacing techniques.
Because the epidermis is left intact, the healing period is rapid. The skin does not risk permanent structural damage, sun sensitivity, skin colour loss or hyper-pigmentation.
Skin Needling can treat sensitive areas that other treatments have to avoid, such as below the eyes, the neck and the back of hands.
