Microneedling & the Benefits to your Skin

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling treatments involve using fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of skin in the process of skin rejuvenation. This may sound slightly terrifying but it is virtually painless!

The needling helps to stimulate the body’s own natural wound healing process by causing small trauma to the skin. This results in cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production- reversing as well as preventing signs of ageing. This treatment is great for combatting those fine lines and wrinkles.

Benefits of Microneedling

Ageing Skin

Treatments such as Meso+ Deluxe Digital Collagen Induction are beneficial for fighting against the early signs of ageing. These signs include fine lines, wrinkles and sagging of the skin. During this treatment a number of Medical Grade skin products will be used for that extra protection against ageing skin. The Jouvance Fountain of Youth serum stimulates elastin, smooths fine lines, tightens, firms and fortifies the skin. Another serum that is used is the Hydration Boost which contains Hyaluronic Acid. This helps to replenish the moisture content of ageing and environmentally damaged skin, restoring a youthful radiance and smoothing the appearance of fine lines.

Scarred Skin

We are talking about atrophic scarring—aka indented scars that are initiated below the upper layer of skin tissue as a result of severe acne that prevents the skin from being able to regenerate tissue correctly. This leaves behind uneven texture in shapes known as ice-pick, rolling, and boxcar scars.

A course of microneedling treatments are great for scarring because the needles break down the collagen in the top layer of the dermis and stimulates the body’s natural repair process by boosting the production of more collagen. This ultimately regenerates the skin, leaving smoother and more youthful looking skin.
