Skin Needling with the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller is realized after multiple studies and monitoring of certain physical rules of physics.
A safe treatment for particular:
• crows feet and fine lines
• skin sagging
How does Skin Needling Therapy work?
By rolling the skin with a dermaroller on which countless needles are attached, we are able to get ingredients deep into the skin, where it really matters. This allows us to achieve better skin improvement with the most common and visible skin problems. With the excellent serums of Medik8 we make the skin accelerate in producing collagen and elastin to finally create a lifting effect.
In detail: The concept of skin needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy) is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, burns or other abrasions. Immediately after an injury occurs to the skin, the body removes the damaged collagen, elastin and other structures which are then replaced by new components. Skin needling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro-injuries which trigger new collagen synthesis, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin. Results can be quite spectacular. The micro-needles penetrate the top layers of the skin and create pin-point injuries in the deeper layers. This triggers the body’s natural wound healing response. As a result, new collagen and elastin is formed to reduce wrinkle depth, increase skin elasticity and improve the appearance of scars and other skin flaws.
How many treatments are needed?
Visible signs of skin rejuvenation are usually seen after just 6 weeks following the treatment and continue to improve for up to a year or more. Medik8 recommends a minimum course of 3 skin needling treatments, at 6 week intervals to achieve optimum results.
What happens on the day of treatment?
1- Arrive: We will give you instructions on how to prepare for arrival at Face the Face including instructions on cleansing and make-up.
2- Anaesthetise: Before the procedure commences a topical anaesthetic or local block will be applied to your skin to make it a virtually pain-free experience. It normally takes about 30-45 minutes for the anaesthetic to numb the skin.
3 - Application: The practitioner will then gently roll the Titanium Microneedle Roller or carefully press the Titanium Microneedle Stamp into the skin to puncture the outermost layers to create thousands of miniscule sub-cutaneous injuries. You will not feel any appreciable pain. Depending on the problem skin area, the procedure usually lasts 20-60 minutes. A total facial requires 60 minutes.
4 - Depart: We will give you post-treatment instructions.
