Skin Needling is a non-invasive clinical treatment that uses microscopic needles to penetrate the skin within the epidermis and dermis. These channels cause different cells within our skin to produce numerous growth factors to normalise and improve various skin functions.
Skin Needling is also known as (C.I.T) Collagen Induction Therapy which is triggered by the wound healing response produced when we cause micro damage to the skin with the use of the Skin Needling device. This wound healing response allows the body to regrow and repair the skin from the inside out, stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin fibres to treat concerns such as:
- Fine Lines
- Enlarged Pores
- Acne & Problematic Skin
How the treatment is performed
At Sheer Elegance we perform our Skin Needling treatments using the Dermapen 4 micro needling device. Dermapen 4 uses medical grade stainless steel needles and contains a powerful motor allowing the treatment to be fast and effective. Upon consultation your therapist will discuss your skin concerns and tailor your Skin Needling treatments to your skins needs.
For optimal results, a course of treatments is required, ranging from 4 – 8 depending on the area being targeted. Treatments are recommended to be performed at 2 – 8 week intervals depending on the skin concern we are targetting.
Immediately following in-clinic treatments, the skin may appear temporarily reddened, similar to that of a mild to light sunburn. Whilst some clients have reported that the skin remains red and slightly swollen for 2-4 days, there will be no scabbing or lesions present.
Following the recommendations by your skin therapist and the appropriate home care given to you post treatment will assist with skin healing and the regenerative process following your treatment.
