Have you been hearing a lot about skin needling in the clinical circles lately? This fascinating treatment is renowned for a number of reasons but most exciting of all, it’s a natural treatment that relies on the function of the skin to do all the hard work. SO, what is skin needling and why are we hearing such good reports about it?
Collagen- it’s not just a buzz word.
Skin needling has a primary role, and that is to stimulate collagen function. Every good clinician knows that collagen is vital for healthy, youthful, glowing skin; the basic role of collagen is exciting to anyone who is a fan of natural skin treatments.
First up – collagen is the most commonly noted protein in the body. It’s the natural scaffolding that provides strength structure and tone to our skin, muscles, bones, ligaments, and tendons. Without it? Well, the simple scenario is this: collagen production depletes as we age… so we look older as this depletion becomes more obvious. The flip side is that we can stimulate the body into producing collagen when we need it- and this, is precisely what skin needling aims to do.
During a skin needling treatment, a skin needling machine uses tiny needles to create micro punctures in the skin. The natural healing response to a wound like this is to send collagen and elastin to the site. No damage is caused to the skin when needling takes place, as the microchannels close quickly and with the assistance of the increased collagen levels at the site, healing is rapid.
