REASONS FOR CHOOSING SKIN NEEDLING / SCAR RELAXATION / MELANOCYTE RESTORATION
- Wrinkles on the face, neck, hands or body
- Stretch marks
- Scars from surgeries or injuries
- Scars from chicken pox or acne
- Scar tissue that is tight or impairs movement
- Hypopigmentation (white spots)
Skin needling, or collagen induction therapy, is a unique process which stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. Using a sterile needle grouping, the technician gently inserts the needle into the epidermis and top layer of the dermis, signaling the brain to send collagen to the injured site for repair. This signal creates an abundance of collagen, thus plumping up the injured area and creating a softer, subtler appearance of wrinkles, acne scars and other depressed areas.
Scar relaxation is the process of releasing the tough, fibrous bands of collagen in contractured, or scarred tissue. A sterile needle grouping is inserted into the dermal layer of tissue, signaling the brain to break down the fibrous bands of collagen in the scar. Results range from softening of the scar’s toughness and texture to increased range of motion. In most successful cases, clients have regained total range of motion, depending on the number of applications and severity of the contracture.
Melanocyte restoration is the process of regenerating the skin’s melanin production in hypopigmented areas (white spots) by stimulating the melanocyte cells. A sterile needle grouping is inserted into the epidermis and top layer of the dermis, signaling the brain to send melanin to the application site in order to repigment areas lacking color. The client must expose the treated area to the natural sunlight or tanning bed for 30 minutes the day of the procedure. The results can range from pink to brown melanin repigmentation, depending on the number of applications a client receives.
