Medical Grade Skin Needling
At CHIC, we use Medical Grade Titanium Skin Needling which can only be used by a Medical Doctor. This treatment is the latest skin rejuvenation technique to help restore a healthy, flawless and youthful appearance to the skin. Our fully qualified doctors will carefully assess the condition of your skin and discuss with you the best treatment options.
What is skin needling?
Skin needling is a procedure that involves puncturing the skin multiple times with small needles attached to a cylindrical roller to induce collagen growth and improve acne scars, traumatic/surgical scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, skin tightness and skin texture. It is a safe, and effective treatment with very minimal to no downtime, that:
– Makes unsightly scars appear less obvious,
– Helps to smooth away fine wrinkles, line, folds and skin ageing related concerns,
– Dramatically increases absorption of active ingredients,
– Maximises efficacy of active skincare products.
How does skin needling work?
Skin needling works through two modes of action:
1. The needles penetrate through the skin to provide micro-channels to maximise the absorption of the topically applied skincare product.
2. The micro-channels induce independent stimulation of new collagen and elastin synthesis, resulting from the skin’s natural healing response. Ultimately, skin strength, structure and resilience is increased. The production of new collagen continues for up to 12 months after the procedure.
