The safest, and most effective skin rejuvenation treatment finally comes to Canada. There are now safe alternatives to ablative skin treatments and lasers for the treatment of acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles and other skin concerns. Medical Skin needling is a non-invasive, non-injectable skin rejuvenation treatment that targets a diverse range of skin concerns and can be performed on most body parts. This procedure uses a roller with microscopic needles between 0.25mm (homecare roller) to 2.0 mm (clinical roller) long. It is derived from ancient acupuncture techniques and mesotherapy. As the needles are rolled over the skin, tiny punctures are created within the epidermis and dermis that encourage the skin’s own natural healing response stimulating the production of collagen and elastin and the release of growth factors. One of the most exciting advantages of this treatment is that it can safely be performed on both darker and lighter skin types. Plus there is minimal downtime and discomfort and an almost immediate outcome.
With skin needling, collagen and elastin deposition are increased and the result is thicker, firmer, healthier skin. The healing period is short compared to other procedures only 24-28 hours because needling leaves the epidermis(your outermost layer of skin) intact. This procedure is less expensive, less risky, and just as effective if not more than laser treatments and other ablative skin treatments. Your practitioner will use a topical numbing cream to minimize discomfort.
Some of the key benefits include:
- Stimulate the production of collagen tightening the skin
- Eliminate or reduce crows feet and lip lines
- Eliminate or reduce forehead lines and frown lines
- Assist in the absorption of cosmetic products
- Reduce the appearance of wrinkles, pigmentation and sun damage
- Treat acne scars and chicken pock scars
- Reduce the appearance of scarring and stretch marks
- Reduce the appearance of enlarged pores
- Helps with Rosacea
- Helps with hair restoration
What makes skin needling such an effective treatment option is a result of what is happening to the skin after it is needled over the next three plus months. Your skin will appear to be visibly healed after 24-48 hours but the healing process is continuously happening beneath the surface for several months. This natural healing process is what makes the treatment so effective.
The fibroblast cells which are the cells that make collagen and elastin will migrate to the injured site and produce and deposit new extracellular matrix. The new matrix cross-links and organizes itself and over time, new collagen will:
- fill in any depressed scars and fine lines and wrinkles that are present
- break down and reorganize any scar tissue
