So you have seen a program on TV but what is skin needling and how does it work? Skin needling is a holistic approach to the age old problems of scaring, stretch marks and ageing. It is a technique used to promote collage production in the skin cells.
Collagen is a protein found all over the body but mainly in bones, connective tissues and skin. The protein acts as a sort of framework to hold cells together. When collagen production is reduced by over exposure to ultraviolet light, smoking, too much sugar in the diet or simply as we get older, the skin in particular starts to lose its firmness and stretchiness. Collagen also plays a part in the production of new skin cells and so collagen dressings are often used on wounds which attract new cells to the site.
Collagen creams claim to improve the collagen in the skin but this is unlikely as collagen molecules are too large to be absorbed by the skin. People spend a lot of money on collagen creams and Vitamin A anti-aging products which last only hours and do not stop the decline of collagen production.
The Chinese have understood for thousands of years the use of needles on the body. They invented acupuncture and understand the anti-aging effects that needles in the skin can have. In the western world the only scientifically proven way to increase collagen production is with micro needling.
Medical research has now shown that using a Derma Roller increases collagen production by upto 1000 percent after just one use. This news is amazing as for everyone interested in stopping the effects of aging on the skin.
Micro needling is a process where rollers are applied to the face or area to be treated. These rollers have tiny needles that pierce the skin to a depth of 0.5 millimetres. This is just deep enough to stimulate collagen production but ot deep enough to do any damage or produce blood.
Holistic Microneedling is now a No.1 Bestselling International Book, which describes the full process and teaches about the skin needling products and services available. Featured on national TV this book answers all your questions about micro needling. Training courses are also available for you to train to use Microneedling in your clinic.
