Fact. As we age, we lose collagen. It is estimated that between the ages of 20 and 40 a whopping 50% of our collagen vanishes. Micro needling is often considered by skin experts as one of the best treatments available. This handheld device creates controlled injury to the skin giving maximum results. What happens? Microscopic injuries are inflicted on the fine blood vessels that are at the level of the hair follicle, some bleeding occurs allowing platelets to leave the blood vessels and get exposed to the surrounding tissue. This triggers the platelets to excrete hormones and growth factors which then stimulate fibroblasts and other collagen producing cells to increase production. End result? Skin tighter and firmer giving it a more luminous appearance. It is a super star at improving conditions including acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles. It’s also great at addressing pore size, stretch marks, brown spots and pigmentation. Best results seen when a series of treatments are booked a month apart.
