WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
Microneedling is a type of treatment that uses small needles to cause tiny punctures in the skin. These small contact points encourage the body to create a wound healing response and renew the skin cells. As your skin repairs, the production of collagen and elastin is triggered to give an almost immediate plumping effect. It can also help tackle other skin damage such as scarring, dark marks, sun damage and ageing.
Microneedling pen uses a unique electronic mechanism which allows your practitioner to control treatment intensity to tailor the treatment to your needs. A solution is also applied to the skin, containing Exitus hyaluronic acid, minerals, vitamins and peptides. These act by stimulating cell proliferation and so improving skin contours and elasticity.
The latest hot beauty trend may sound like a sadistic medical procedure — microneedling basically does to your face what an aerator does to a lawn — but that hasn’t stopped celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston from signing up for it.
The anti-aging treatment is being heralded as a less invasive alternative to Botox, fillers and lasers, which can cause flare-ups of melasma and rosacea, as well as hyperpigmentation.
By using tiny needles to puncture the skin and make small wounds, collagen production is stimulated during the healing process.
The result? Smoother, more taut skin.
