What can it treat?
Collagen is a protein that holds skin cells together and gives skin its structure. When you’re young, you’ll have collagen in abundance but, as you age, it starts to break down. Through micro-needling, the body’s natural healing process is triggered thus kick-starting the production of new collagen, elastin, and plumping up the skin. This procedure remains to be one of the safest procedures that can be repeated because the needles cannot harm the epidermis. It can be used in regions such as under eye, mouth, hands, and chest where laser and deep peel treatments cannot be performed.
Is it safe?
As micro-needling uses the body’s own resources to treat skin problems, it has no major risks or side effects. Post-treatment, the skin may appear pink or flushed, but this subsides after a few hours. Our team will advise you on how many sessions may be needed as results vary individually.
Micro Needling vs. laser treatment
Lasers are a highly effective method of fixing ageing skin; they use fixed lights to tear down certain colors of pigmentation and evaporate skin. Dark spots can be treated as well but may lead to complications when treating patients with a dark skin tone.
Micro-needling splits skin pigments automatically and reconstructs the collagen without heat or light. As there is no heat involved in the process, it automatically becomes a secure and reliable treatment with less downtime.
