What is Microneedling Treatment?
Microneedling (also known as skin needling or percutaneous collagen induction therapy) is a minimally invasive treatment that involves creating precise, microscopic punctures in the stratum corneum of your skin with small needles.
These “micro-injuries” act by encouraging the skin to heal itself naturally through a process known as dermal remodelling; without causing any scars.
Clinical Collagen Induction Therapy
As the ageing process begins, your skin’s collagen levels start to decline. However, when your skin is in the healing and repairing mode, new and more collagen can be created.
Using your body’s self-healing response, microneedling procedure boosts the collagen production (the elastic fibres that make skin firmer, smoother, and rejuvenated).
A board certified dermatologist or aesthetic practitioner carries out this minimally non invasive skin treatment with needles to resurface your skin for a youthful skin rejuvenation that gets compliments.
What is a Microneedling Facial?
Medical Skin Needling, using Derma roller UK, is one of the most requested facials by younger patients as well as mature men and women and suitable for many skin types.
From correcting acne scars and stretch marks to stimulating collagen and speeding up the process of cell renewal, microneedles facial has proven to be a skin multi tasker.
Moreover, this under 60 minutes treatment rejuvenates the skin by creating many micro channels through your skin, which help the topical products and active skincare to penetrate deeper into your skin effectively.
As your skin heals, there is a boost in the collagen and elastin, giving an almost instant plumped up and firming effect to an aging skin.
How Does Microneedling Work?
After applying a topical numbing cream, the skin is thoroughly cleansed. The eDermastamp single-use, sterile needle microneedling device is then set to the correct speed, needle lengths and depth for the treatment area and moved over the skin to create many microscopic channels.
With microneedling treatment, the depth is within the papillary dermal layer of the skin, where collagen and elastin fibres are located.
The tiny holes close over almost immediately as the channels are small.
The ‘micro tears’ to the dermis encourages the skin to repair itself by activating skin’s healing process and promoting collagen production and elastin and generating new skin cells.
This results in thicker, plumper and more youthful skin without any significant downtime.
Corrects Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Collagen and elastin are crucial skin proteins that give firmness and resilience to your aging skin, hence, a youthful appearance.
More research done on in office treatments such as PRP and collagen induction therapy shows that the skin healing processes promote your body to develop new skin cells. These visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines.
Addresses Sun Damage
Microneedling facial can help improve the appearance of sun damage, such as dark patches due to hyperpigmentation as well as age spots. You may need multiple treatments to see visible improvements in your skin condition. Patients with darker skin tones can also greatly benefit from the signs of sun damage including fine lines and wrinkles.
If you suffer from a blotchy, uneven complexion due to too much sun exposure, microneedling procedure renews skin cells and revitalises your entire complexion and even out skin tone.
Reverses Hair Loss & Boosting Hair Growth
Topical skin treatments when performed in combination with microneedling have shown to improve skin penetration.
Microneedling may be done prior to applying minoxidil, a medication used to treat common hair loss (androgenic alopecia, affecting both men and women). Platelet Rich Plasma is also a powerful hair follicle boosting treatment, widely requested at CosmeDocs.
Fading Acne & Acne Scars
Microneedling helps to minimise scars from injuries or acne by breaking down scar tissue and encouraging skin protein, collagen to restore its surface. Most people achieve visible improvement with a series of derma roller for acne scars as well as other scars.
Minimises Large Open Pores
Even though this non-invasive procedure requires creating micro tears in your skin, the treatment has no effect on the size of your pores.
It actually makes your pores seem smaller. This is because the collagen around your pores is boosted, and the skin around each pore renews, practically shrinking the enlarged pores.
Rejuvenating Hands, Neck and Décolletage
The superficial layers of the skin are renewed to rebuild their collagen and rejuvenate the skin of the neck, hands and decolletage. This is due to micro tears using the Derma roller UK or the Dermapen.
When done in combination with skincare products, the skin can absorb the nutrients and goodness of the skincare routine effectively.
