Skin Needling Training Course

Skin needling is administering controlled injury to the skin to induce collagen production.  When causing the right form of injury, the dermis reacts to the trauma by repairing itself, generating new collagen & elastin, resulting in a rejuvenated appearance. Also known as microneedling, collagen induction therapy, dermal needling or percutaneous collagen induction

As each fine needle punctures the skin, it creates a channel or micro-wound. This controlled injury triggers the body to fill these micro-wounds by producing new collagen & elastin in the papillary dermis. In addition, new capillaries are formed. This neo-vascularisation & neo-collagenases following treatment leads to reduction of scars &  skin rejuvenation, i.e. improved skin texture, firmness & hydration.

Pen Needling is effective at: 

  • Improving fine lines & deep wrinkles
  • Skin tightening, lifting & rejuvenation
  • Increasing the epidermis by up to 40%; resulting in a fresher look
  • Improving acne scars & wound healing
  • Improving skin texture, tone & colour
  • Improving pigmentation
  • Minimising pore size
  • Fading stretch marks
  • Improving collagen-elastin structure
  • Normalising TEWL and moisture retention in scars
  • Stimulating development of new blood vessels

Mesotherapy is a treatment that introduces microscopic quantities of sterile products into the skin via the pen to treat a variety of conditions
