What is Micro Needling?
Advanced medical micro-needling is a treatment that can help to tighten, firm and rejuvenate your skin. It uses between 9-36 tiny needles to gently puncture the skin to help treat a range of skin conditions, including lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, acne scarring, age spots and pigmentation. Micro-needling stimulates collagen and elastin production so that your skin repairs itself naturally and safely. This less invasive alternative to cosmetic surgery with minimal downtime will provide smoother, brighter, healthier and younger-looking skin.
The concept of micro-needling is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself when it suffers physical damage such as cuts, burns, abrasions or other injuries. Immediately after an injury to the skin, our body begins the healing process, triggering new collagen synthesis. The LED Pen is a microneedling device that intentionally creates very superficial “micro-injuries” to the outermost layer of the skin, inducing the healing process including new collagen production. Micro-needling has been shown to reduce the visibility of acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles, diminish hyper pigmentation, and improve skin tone and texture, resulting in smoother, firmer, younger looking skin.
