Microneedling

Skin needling is also called micro-needling therapy or collagen induction therapy. It is a minimally-invasive non-surgical and nonablative procedure for facial rejuvenation that involves the use of a micro-needling device to create controlled skin injury.

As each fine needle punctures the skin, it creates a channel or micro-wound. The controlled injury triggers the body to fill these micro-wounds by producing new collagen and elastin in the papillary dermis. In addition, new capillaries are formed. This treatment leads to reduction of scars, improved skin texture and leaves the skin firm and hydrated.

Skin needling is effectively used for:

  • Reducing scars (including hypertrophic scars) caused by acne, surgery or thermal burns
  • Reducing fine lines and deep wrinkles
  • Dyspigmentation e.g in melasma
  • Tightening sagging skin
