At Skin+IQ we combine our skin expertise with clinically proven skin rejuvenation treatments like micro needling, to utilise the benefits of micro-trauma to stimulate skin, to prompt the skin’s natural rejuvenation and collagen production response.
Medical skin needling treatments stimulate the body’s own collagen production to reduce the appearance of a range of skin conditions including; fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, scarring, pigmentation and skin laxity.
This controlled and targeted micro-trauma damage encourages the body to produce new collagen and elastin which in turn generates new skin cells to repair resulting in thicker, plumper and more youthful looking skin.
In this treatment, needles are used to create 1000s of columns of micro-injury to the skin, stimulating a natural healing response; creating new collagen and elastin, remodelling scars, improving skin quality, tone and texture. By introducing fine needles to the skin to create microscopic injuries the dermis is encouraged to produce new collagen and elastin which generates new skin cells.
When the skin is injured, a reparative process takes place to replace the damaged skin with new collagen, and heal the injury wound. During this treatment, microneedling facials leaves the epidermis (the upper most, ‘barrier’ layer of the skin intact, whilst the micro injuries caused by sterile, fine, surgical needles, triggers a complex cascade of wound healing depositing new improved collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid (the ‘bricks and mortar’ of healthy skin structure) providing firmer and more elastic skin.
Clinical studies have shown that micro needling skin rejuvenation treatments produces channels in the dermis which sufficiently stimulate the body’s natural defences to repair and produce concentrated amounts of collagen and proteins to the treated areas of skin. This results in the skins thickness being increased by up to 80% smoothing scars, visibly reducing stretch marks and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
Results are achieved gradually over a period of months and multiple treatment sessions may be required to achieve optimum results. Enhanced results can be achieved when prescribed skin care is used to support the skin healing process.
Results on scars are permanent, but for aging skin, maintenance treatments, one every 6 months are recommended.
Results – Accumulative
Downtime – minimal to none
