They say that beauty is only skin deep, so it makes sense that the latest beauty treatment favoured by fans is something known as ‘Skin Needling’.Also commonly known as Micro-Needling Therapy (or Collagen Induction Therapy), this is a Non-Surgical and minimally invasive treatment; used as a solution for facial rejuvenation. Manually applied using a roller, the handheld tool is covered in extra fine surgical steel needles that when rolled across the face, ‘injures’ the skin to boost collagen formation. While it may sound quite painful, the popularity behind Skin Needling lies in its natural healing process. By puncturing the skin, this in turn accelerates the skin’s regeneration of collagen – resulting in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, while producing a firmer complexion. Another reason Dermaroller Therapy has become so successful is because it is safe for all skin types – so even those who have extra sensitive skin can still benefit from this treatment. But for those with a fear of needles, fear not: as Doctors using shorter needles will use a numbing agent prior to the treatment to help ease any pain (many patients have reported experiencing little to no pain at all). Any treatment using larger needles will involve the patient being sedated beforehand. Would you give Dermaroller Therapy a go? Post your ‘points’ on Facebook now!
