Skin needling is often referred to as collagen induction or percutaneous collagen induction therapy.
It is an advanced skin treatment aimed at inducing collagen and elastin production within the skin’s lower levels, whilst at the same time refreshing the appearance of the surface of the skin.
Skin needling can be used as part of a treatment plan in conjunction with laser and light treatments and
It can also be used as a stand alone preventative and restorative treatment to maintain the skin’s integrity and quality.
Skin needling is a versatile treatment that can be adapted to all skin types and treat a wide variety of skin concerns.
Skin needling is a skin rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of very fine, medical grade needles which are passed across the skin creating micro-channels.
This controlled ‘injury’ initiates the natural healing process of the skin which in turn results in the production of new collagen and elastin and the regeneration and repair of damaged tissue, visibly improving skin texture and tone.
The formation of microchannels with skin needling also results in improved absorption and enhanced penetration of active cosmeceutical products both immediately after the procedure and in the weeks following.
Skin needling can be used for multiple indications such as:
- Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
- Improve congestion and oiliness
- Reduce the appearance of pores
- Improve surface texture
- Reduction in acne or surgical scars
- Reduction of pigmentation
- Improvement in inflammatory skin and rosacea
- Reduction in the appearance of stretch marks
- Support skin regeneration for tighter, more youthful skin by increasing collagen and elastin
Different grades of skin needling can be used. At Youth Lab we use medical grade skin needling devices (Dermapen 4 and Mesoesthetic Mpen) which can go to different depths in the skin to target different concerns.
The Dermapen 4 is the newest addition to our range of devices here at Youth Lab and is a TGA approved medical device.
We also offer excellent add on infusions with skin needling which help with natural rejuvenation and regeneration of the skin, as well as tailored solutions to treat conditions such as scarring, pigmentation, skin laxity and fine lines.
Prior to any procedure we will discuss each patient’s individual concerns and tailor a treatment program according to their desired outcome. A recommended treatment course will be provided and regular follow-up ensured.
