Dermal micro-needling is a non-surgical skin care treatment using an electronic device studded with tiny needles that cause controlled micro-injuries to the skin. The skin reacts to these injuries by releasing growth factors that form collagen and elastin fibres to fill the channels made by the needles.
This has the effect of firming and plumping the skin and improving the skin texture. This treatment is also sometimes known by the names skin needling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT).
Dermal micro-needling can be effective in treating:
Mild to moderate acne scarring or other scars
Fine lines and wrinkles
Loose, lax skin
Skin texture and pore size
Before this treatment can be given you will require a consultation to ascertain your medical history and suitability for treatment.
