Skin needling is a relatively new treatment. It can be used on the face, neck, decolletage and hands. A special instrument with tiny needles from less than 2mm in length is used to create microscopic punctures in the skin. This promotes the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. But what sort of skin conditions can skin needling Sydney treat?
Skin needling has a fantastic effect of fading and smoothing the appearance of scarring. Common types of scarring needling can treat include:
- Acne scarring
- Chicken pox scarring
- Surgical scars
People who have had skin needling to treat scarring will usually need 5-6 treatments. The results will appear gradually, and include a tightening and smoothing of the scarred area. Pigmentation will also fade.
Fine lines and enlarged pores
Skin needling can also help correct a range of other skin complaints. It can help reduce the appearance of fine lines. It can also minimise large pores. It’s worthwhile to speak to a skin specialist to determine if you have a skin problem that needling can correct.
As well as treating skin problems on the face, needling can also rejuvenate areas of the body such as the neck, decolletage and hands. If these areas are looking tired, crepey or have pigmentation, skin needling can help.
