05 Dec Latest and Greatest Treatments…..Skin Needling
GUEST BLOGGER-CRYSTAL PATEL of clinicalase.
I want to share my experience about this treatment because I ‘ve seen some truly amazing results and hope to provide some reassurances you may need before trying this new treatment.
The first thing I have to say about Skin Needling is that you should source a reputable clinic that uses good quality devices. This is very important as it will determine what results you will get. I highly recommend Dermaroller as they are the only company to have their devices TGA approved in Australia.
What is the Skin Needling and should you give it a go?
I decided to give this new treatment a trial so that I have the experience firsthand. The Dermaroller is a cylindrical shaped drum studded with 190 very small micro needles. It is a medical treatment used to break down old scar tissue and stimulate skin cells to proliferate. This results in the formation of new tissue layers of collagen and elastin fibres.
A topical anaesthetic was applied to my skin to reduce the discomfort of the needling. As the device was rolled over my face it felt like an intense prickling, like severe pins and needles. The device was rolled over each skin part about 15-20 times.
The first couple of weeks after the treatment my skin peeled, and I couldn’t notice any real improvements. However, by week 3 I had received several comments on how great my skin looked and I certainly could see a clear improvement in my overall skin tone, complexion and a notable reduction in visible pore size.
I can be quite critical of treatments and products that I try, all because if I make a recommendation to my clients, especially for a treatment that causes some discomfort, I am essentially putting my reputation on it. But, when you get a product that is this effective I am more than happy to shout about it and I find most of my clients are prepared to endure a little discomfort if the results will make a significant difference to the way that they look.
Indeed, we have since treated many clients for Skin Regeneration as well as a variety of conditions such as Acne Scarring, Wound Scars, Lines & Wrinkles and Open Pores. The results achieved on clients with these conditions are even more remarkable than when used for general skin regeneration. The feedback that I have received from clients has been sensational and for me this treatment is a huge hit and a must have on the menu of all skin clinics.
