Derma needling, also called microneedling therapy, is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles.
Derma Needling, also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) and Micro-Needling is aimed at stimulating the body’s own collagen production to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, skin laxity and scarring such as that caused by acne or chicken pox. It have also been successfully applied to the indication of hair restoration in cases of alopecia. There are a number of different devices, such as manual dermarollers or automated pen-like devices now available to the marketplace. The treatment introduces a series of fine, sharp needles into the skin. The needles are attached to a single use, sterile roller which is moved over the surface of the skin to create many microscopic channels or to a cartridge of needles arranged in a circle at the end of an automated device . This damage encourages the body to produce new collagen and elastin which generate new skin cells to repair itself; the skin becomes thicker, plumper and more youthful.
Derma Needling is effectively used for:
- Reducing scars (including hypertrophic scars) caused by acne, surgery or thermal burns
- Fading stretch marks
- Reducing fine lines and deep wrinkles
- Dyspigmentation e.g in melasma
- Tightening sagging skinreduce pore size
- Reduce oil levels in the skin (seborrhoea)
