Skin Needling is a non-ablative Skin rejuvenation technique that offers a more physiologically compatible way of triggering collagen synthesis. The Medik8 Titanium Microneedle Roller/Stamp creates a multitude of tiny pin prick wounds to the skin which:
Induce the release of growth factors that stimulate the production and formation of new collagen and elastin

How is skin needling performed?
Local anesthitic cream is applied to the treated area for one hour. The roller is then repeatedly moved over the particular area, which causes tiny pinpoint puncture wounds. The production of new collagen continues for up to 12 months after the procedure.
Depressed acne scars, wrinkles, skin texture and skin tightness all continue to improve over this period.
How many treatments are needed?
The number of treatmentswill depend on the individual collagen response and the severity of the area being treated. Most patients require 2 to 6 treatments approximately 3-4 weeks apart.
Is the procedure painful?
There may be some discomfort associated with the procedure, but it is well tolerated by most individuals with local or topical anesthetic.
