Skin Needling is sometimes known as Collagen Induction Therapy or Dermapen and it is a treatment that encourages the skin to repair itself by stimulating collagen production. This innovative procedure motivates the skin’s own natural wound healing response with small needles to reveal glowing and brighter skin that is softer and smoother.
Skin Needling is a rejuvenation procedure can be used to combat the signs of aging. As we get older natural collagen production slows down, which can lead to fine lines and wrinkles.
This treatment can reduce the appearance of aged skin and boost elastin for a more youthful complexion. In addition, patients with scarring and stretch marks can have positive results with this treatment.
Skin Needling can also be used to diminish the appearance of pigmentation and sun damage, as well as improve uneven skin texture.
