Microneedling (percutaneous collagen induction)
Microneedling, also called ‘dermarolling’ and ‘skin needling’, is a gentle therapeutic procedure that is used in the refining and smoothing of the skin. Tiny needles at the top of the roller generate minuscule punctures which stimulate the skin and cell regeneration and induce the production of hyaluronic acid and collagen. Microneedling is suitable for virtually every skin type and can be applied everywhere on the body to refine, tighten, smooth and rejuvenate the skin’s complexion.
Areas of Application
This therapeutic method has a very broad spectrum of application areas. Micro-needling is used, for example, in treating enlarged pores, pigment disorders, melasma, stretch marks, scars, age-related changes to the skin, slack skin, hair loss and in wrinkle reduction. In general, this therapeutic method can be used on the entire body, however, it is primarily carried out on the face and neck area, the décolleté, the scalp, the thighs and the buttocks by means of micro-needling.
How does Microneedling work?
The positive effects of microneedling are created by the little punctures made by very tiny needles. Certain receptors in the skin are stimulated by the tiny punctures to generate an increase in growth factors. These growth factors then stimulate the natural regeneration process of the skin, inducing the production of hyaluronic acid and collagen and promoting circulation in the tissue area being treated. Connective tissue is hereby strengthened and the elasticity of the skin is significantly improved as well. Since care products (e.g. Cosmeceuticals) can be more easily absorbed by the skin after microneedling and their effectiveness greatly improved, combining therapeutic treatments maximises the achievement of the desired effect. Over the course of the treatment the skin shows visible improvement. The results are a fresher, more radiant complexion and firm, healthy looking skin.
