How does medical needling work?
Skin needling improves scar appearance by creating multiple pin point wounds to the skin & stimulating your skin to produce collagen. Skin needling increases the thickness and health of skin. Previous treatment of facial scars & wrinkles with laser resulted in a thinner skin, which meant it is not safe to repeat treatments and caused an unnatural white appearance in a significant number of people. Needling is safe even on delicate areas around lips and eye lids.
The most exciting thing about skin needling is its safety profile. Because it does not cause any significant trauma to the surface of the skin, needling dark skin types is very safe. Unlike laser and chemical peels which cause significant surface trauma with high risk of hypo or hyper pigmentation after treatment, skin needling is safe on skin type 4 and above.
Needling scar treatment generally involves 3-5 treatments spaced monthly to two monthly. However after the first treatment you will notice an improvement in the quality of the skin.
Moles, Sun damage, Skin tags, Ruby points, Broken Capillaries & Freckles
Mole removal is a relatively minor, but undeniably important, procedure. Most moles are harmless, but occasionally moles can be cancerous. If you have a mole that changes in size, shape, or color, or one that bleeds, itches, or becomes painful, a medical professional should examine it as soon as possible. It may also be appropriate to visit us for mole removal purely for cosmetic reasons if you consider your mole unattractive. In most cases a small white mark is left after healing. In some cases, skin needling can further improve the appearance of the spot.
