We get it, the name skin needling sounds scarier than a trip to the dentist. But this super effective, beauty-enhancing treatment is much less intimidating than it sounds. So what is skin needling exactly? The beauty experts at Simply Laser are here to answer all of your burning questions.
WHAT IS SKIN NEEDLING?
Skin needling is a powerful cosmetic treatment in which miniscule needles penetrate the skin to stimulate collagen production. At Simply Laser, we use the medical grade Dermapen 3, a small hand held device that uses mechanised, regular puncturing actions to deliver a fast, and completely safe treatment. This new technology works much better than dermal rollers, producing more effective results without damaging the skin. Watch the video below to see how it works.
WHY DOES IT WORK SO WELL?
The needles of the Dermapen 3 penetrate both the epidermis and the dermis, causing micro injuries that stimulate the skin’s natural regeneration properties. As your skin begins to heal itself, it produces high levels of collagen and elastin that leave your skin looking plump and rejuvenated.
Because skin needling forces your skin to repair itself and create fresh tissue, skin needling is an effective way of minimising the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks, pigmentation and fine lines. It’s also an effective treatment for dry skin.
DOES SKIN NEEDLING HURT?
The needles used in skin needling treatments are only a few millimeters long, usually no more than three, and are gentle enough to use on delicate skin near the eyes. Most patients report minimal levels of discomfort during a treatment. Skin needling treatments are mild enough to have every 30 days.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT POST-TREATMENT?
Unlike some other cosmetic treatments, skin needling doesn’t require any downtime. You can return to your usual work/life activities immediately. While you may experience mild redness post-treatment, you’ll notice your skin glowing immediately after your first treatment. So if you have a special event coming up, skin needling is a quick and easy method of making your skin radiant.
