Science and cosmetic medicine are revolutionising treatments based on the body's profound ability to heal itself. By stimulating the wound healing response, we can trigger cell renewal and skin regeneration to help restore youthfulness and improve the appearance of irregularities.
We explain what medical skin needling is and discuss the top benefits that you can achieve. Find out how this treatment can improve scarring and pigmentation, minimise lines, and lift and tighten skin, to result in a more youthful appearance.
What is medical skin needling?
The goal behind medical skin needling is to trigger the body to create new collagen and elastin. The treatment involves using micro needles that move extremely fast, to create tiny injuries within the skin, thereby promoting your body’s natural healing process. The channels created by the tiny needles can carry up to 80% more nutrients from the topical application of high-grade skincare, into the skin's dermis and basal layer. The vastly improved absorption of active ingredients optimises repair and resurfacing results.
Patients experience minimal discomfort during treatment due to the speed at which the fine needles move and the topical numbing cream that is applied before treatment. Following treatment, patients may notice some redness and a sunburnt type feeling.
At Al Nour Clinic, we use Dermapen™ for skin needling facial rejuvenation as it offers less downtime and better results than traditional needling treatments.
Top 6 Benefits of Medical Skin Needling
Dermapen™ treatment offers the following benefits:
- Stimulates the production of collagen and elastin to strengthen, plump, lift and tighten the skin
- Reduces the appearance of acne scars, smoothes skin and balances tone and colour
- Minimises fine lines and improves the appearance of wrinkles
- Reduces pore size and improves skin texture
- Improves the appearance of pigmentation and age spots
- Improves the appearance of stretch marks and surgical scars
Skin needling for cosmetic purposes was first developed in Germany in the early 1900's. It has since then evolved into one of the must-have facial rejuvenation treatments. Dermapen™ differs from roller needling as it creates much finer channels in the epidermis, compared to rolling which creates v-shaped punctures. Rolling causes more trauma to the epidermis, thus increasing downtime and recovery.
