Dermal Needling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a form of digital collagen induction using fine needles to perforate the skin and encourage natural collagen deposition. The needles sit within a cartridge in a pen like device, which is filled with a serum specific to your skin type that is delivered into the skin at the time of the treatment.
The increase in trauma that it causes leads to increased results as it stimulates the body’s natural healing functions more. The needles penetrate into the skin through the epidermis and deposit the serums deeper down into the dermal-epidermal junction, leading to longer lasting results. A mild Salicylic Peel is performed prior to the needling to prep the skin.
Dermal Needling is suitable for clients with skin issues such as acne scars, fine lines and deeper set lines and wrinkles. The beauty of Dermal Needling is that it targets the problem areas more directly by penetrating the skin. Redness can usually last for 24 hours.
