Microneedling (also known as skin needling or collagen induction therapy) is a type of treatment that uses small needles to cause tiny punctures in the skin. These contact points encourage the body to create a wound healing response and renew cells. As your skin repairs, the production of collagen and elastin is triggered to give an almost immediate plumping effect that can help to tackle concerns such as scarring, dark marks, sun damage and ageing.
Here at Eterno Aesthetics we use Derma FNS™, an innovative electronic microneedling device that applies multiple needles to vertically pierce the skin and create channels which are designed to achieve the same effect as those created by fractional lasers. This is done by stimulating natural dermal processes, leading to tightening and remodelling with minimal damage.
Treatment triggers a release of serum growth factors, which stimulate the breakdown of old fibrous collagen and promote new collagen and elastin development. Microneedling is therefore used to help with skin lifting and rejuvenation, acne scars and wound healing, improving wrinkles and fine lines, minimising pore size and reducing stretch marks.
A mesotherapy solution (special cocktail of nutrients such as hyaluronic acid, vitamins, minerals and amino-acids) can also be added to significantly boost the appearance of your complexion. For best results, at least three sessions are recommended, but each case is individual and depends on the quality of your skin and level of damage. An additional at home skincare regime is highly recommended to achieve the most successful outcome
Microneedling is most commonly used to treat the following conditions…
Dullness: rejuvenate tired and dreary skin and combat the initial signs of ageing.
Wrinkles: fine lines on the face can be visibly reduced, as microneedling triggers collagen production.
Scarring: welts from acne or Chicken Pox can be improved and an uneven texture smoothed.
Pigmentation: can help to fade brown patches and discoloration due to sun damage or ageing.
Microneedling is also a great procedure if you have a darker complexion because it doesn’t involve peels or lasers, which can cause coloration issues. Treatments can be performed on the body as well as the face and prices are based on the size of the area targeted.
