Medical skin needling is a treatment for ageing and sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles, ‘smoker’s’ lines around lips, skin tightening and rejuvenation, treatment of stretch marks and scars.
Multiple tiny needle pricks stimulate the production of growth factors in the deep dermis. This then can result in a thicker, smoother and healthier appearing skin as a result of increased collagen formation. As a general rule it is recommended to have 4-6 treatments that are 2-4 weeks apart. Excellent results can also be achieved with alternating platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatment and skin needling.
