Skin Needling for acne scars, now at Belvoir Aesthetics

Skin Needling for acne scars, now at Belvoir Aesthetics

As part of our rebranding exercise, we are excited to offer our clients skin needling for acne scars and its various other benefits from Medik8.

The concept of skin needling is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, burns and other abrasions. Immediately after an injury occurs to the skin our body reuses the damaged collagen and elastin fibres as well as other damaged skin components to produce new ones. Skin needling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self repair mechanism by creating micro “injuries” in the skin which triggers new collagen synthesis, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin.

Skin needling is especially effective for ageing concerns such as wrinkles, lines, folds and crows feet. Because collagen is produced, scars can also improve from treatments especially indented acne scars or chicken pox scars. Pigmentation issues can be helped including hyper-pigmentation as well as Hypopigmentation. General lack of skin radiance, skin firmness and compactness are also an indication for skin needling treatments and visible improvements can be seen.

How does Skin Needling work?

The concept of skin needling is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, burns and other abrasions. Immediately after an injury occurs to the skin our body reuses the damaged collagen and elastin fibres as well as other damaged skin components to produce new ones. Skin needling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self repair mechanism by creating micro “injuries” in the skin which triggers new collagen synthesis, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin.

Is Skin Needling Safe?

Medik8 skin needling does not involve injections and therefore allergic reactions and side-effects are unlikely. It is minimally invasive, involves minimal downtime (max.24hrs), rapid healing and requires simple after-care. Clinical skin needling is minimally invasive and normally no blood is drawn, however small amounts of pin point bleeding in clients with thin skin may occur and should be considered as normal

How quickly are results visible?

Visible results of skin rejuvenation are seen after just 6-8 weeks following procedure and continue for up to a year. A course of three Medik8 skin needling sessions, at 6-8 week intervals, is usually recommended to achieve optimum results; however great skin improvement is noticeable after just one treatment. Clients are also encouraged to use the Personal Titanium Dermaroller/Dermastamp model on a daily basis in between their Medik8 skin needling sessions to enhance procedure results.
