Micro Needling: A Radical Skin Treatment That Works
Don’t let the name put you off. Skin needling might sound scary, but it is arguably one of the most effective ways to combat skin foes such as wrinkles, fine lines, scars and pigmentation, all at once.
Tiny, ultra-fine, medical-grade needles are passed over the skin’s surface with a skin needling device, applied in a criss-cross motion. The tiny needles puncture the skin, triggering the skin’s natural healing response, which includes stimulating new collagen and elastin production. More collagen and elastin makes for firmer, tighter looking skin with diminished lines and wrinkles whilst providing versatile correction of many skin conditions.
Safe, non-intrusive and virtually pain-free, medical skin needling is used to treat a huge range of skin concerns, including wrinkles and lines, scarring, enlarged pores and blackheads, sun spots, pigmentation, under-eye bags and general lack of skin firmness, volume and elasticity.
Electronic Collagen Induction Therapy
ECIT, or Electronic Collagen Induction Therapy, is a new and improved method of electronic skin needling. It allows deeper, cleaner puncturing of the skin with less trauma but more result. ECIT can be performed alone, or combined with a plasma treatment for even better results.
Platelet Rich Plasma Treatments (PRP)
The most recent advances in non-surgical cosmetic procedures now offer a treatment using Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), which is the concentrated part of blood that contains the platelets. Blood is taken from the patient and spun in a centrifuge to separate the pure plasma from the red blood cells. This plasma is then put back into the patient’s skin using the needle roller which stimulates tissue tightening and thickening. The plasma heightens all of the cellular activity as it contains all of the blood’s enzymes, protein growth factors and antioxidants in the purest concentrated form. The remainder of the plasma is infused into the tissue using a galvanic current, antioxidants and oxygen infusion. The result is stimulation of collagen, hydration and increased skin function which appears as smoother, refined pores, resolving of scarring, pigmentation and fine lines.
What are the advantages?
With or without Plasma treatment, skin needling is the one treatment that can help address your skin concerns. Unlike laser or peel treatments, electronic needling doesn’t create a heightened sensitivity to UV light, so you don’t have to avoid the sun or factor in any down-time.
Skin needling is an exciting non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment. Designed to support skin regeneration to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin texture, plump and firm, ECIT skin needling is a one-stop shop in the never-ending quest to combat the effects of ageing.
