Skin needling is the practice of using a cosmetic roller covered in tiny needles that prick the skin to help minimise the appearance of various complexion concerns particularly ageing.
The practice works on two levels; one is that these needles cause minor injury to the skin which triggers the production of collagen and elastin in order to seal the wounds at the surface. This increase also helps to plump up fine lines and add volume to the face. The second is that these needles create tiny tunnels in the skin, forging a clear pathway to the dermis so that any topical serums or treatments applied afterwards deliver better results, tackling a number of complexion concerns from uneven pigmentation to scarring.
While the biggest improvement takes place over a number weeks and treatments, you will see an improvement in the skin’s overall radiance almost immediately. Over time, the skin becomes firmer and plumper, imperfections become diminished and wrinkles appear softer.
