Microneedling causes micro-punctures to the skin. These tiny punctures enter at the pre-measured, correct depths, causing supervised damage to the skin in micro-channels. These small channels activate the ‘healing process’ to respond quickly, in turn renewing skin cells aiding the reversal of sun damage, pigmentation, and signs of ageing. As the skin repairs, the production of collagen and elastin is triggered to give an almost immediate plumping, brightening & lifting effect.
Microneedling is ideal for treating the body as well as the face, excellent in minimising stretch marks, scarring, pigmentation, wrinkles and the appearance of cellulite.
