Medical skin needling is a safe, simple and virtually pain-free treatment for lines, wrinkles and lack of skin elasticity. It helps to improve skin firmness by triggering new collagen synthesis. It can also be beneficial for acne and chicken pox scarring, enlarged pores and pigmentation.
At Complete Lasercare, we use Skinrolla sterile, single use devices. The rollers come in a range of needle sizes, meaning we can select the size most appropriate to your skin type and concern. We also recommend SkinCeuticals topical antioxidants such as CE Ferulic or Phloretin and topical retinol to be used in conjunction with a course of skin needling treatment, to enhance results.
Skin needling works by micro-needles penetrating the top layers of the skin, creating pin-point injuries in the deeper skin layers. This triggers the body’s wound healing response and thus the formation of both collagen and elastin resulting in smoother, firmer and more youthful looking skin.
We offer a free consultation to discuss suitability for treatment and expected results. A course of three treatments six to eight weeks apart is normally recommended.
