COSMETIC ENHANCEMENT<br />

SKIN<br />

NEEDLING<br />

• Overall skin rejuvenation<br />

• Acne and other scarring<br />

• Pore size reduction, textural improvements<br />

Skin needling, or micro-needling, is a<br />

treatment used to improve the appearance of<br />

wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, skin texture and<br />

premature ageing by creating tiny punctures in<br />

the skin. The treatment achieves a controlled<br />

injury to the skin, which stimulates the skin’s<br />

natural growth of healthy new skin. The<br />

epidermis is left primarily intact so the healing<br />

period is quick – which makes it an effective<br />

laser or chemical peel alternative for many.<br />

Skin needling can be performed alone,<br />

usually with a roller embedded with<br />

medical-grade sterile micro-needles. For<br />

more dramatic lifting and toning results,<br />

radiofrequency (RF) micro-needling devices<br />

combine the collagen-boosting, skin<br />

resurfacing effect of skin needling with the<br />

skin-tightening technology of RF energy.<br />

After treatment, the skin is red and swollen<br />

for around one to two days, with a light grazelike<br />

scabbing effect forming over the treated<br />

area on day two of recovery. Most patients are<br />

able to return to work and normal activities<br />

within 48 hours of treatment.<br />

Multiple treatments are usually necessary<br />

to achieve significant improvement in the<br />

appearance and depth of lines and scars.<br />

Treatment effects are cumulative and can<br />

be seen six to eight weeks after the initial<br />

treatment with long-lasting results.<br />

LASERS<br />

• Overall skin rejuvenation<br />

• Sun damage, scarring, lines and wrinkles,<br />

anti-ageing, pigmentation<br />

Laser therapies work by targeting tissue and<br />

can be used for a number of treatments,<br />

including pigmentation, scarring, unwanted<br />

hair, spider veins, sun-damaged skin, and<br />

wrinkle reduction.<br />

Advances in laser technology mean that<br />

laser skin resurfacing, once reserved for the<br />

treatment of severe conditions such as acne<br />

scarring due to the extensive downtime<br />

involved, has become an effective option for<br />

many people seeking reduction of lines and<br />

wrinkles and correction of pigmentation.<br />

Most resurfacing lasers work by removing<br />

microscopic quantities and stimulating the<br />

production of new collagen in the skin. The<br />

advent of fractionated laser technology,<br />

where microscopic columns of skin are<br />

treated while surrounding skin is left intact,<br />

has made it possible to achieve better<br />

results with fewer side effects. Fractionated<br />

technology has been applied to the CO 2<br />

laser, dramatically reducing the recovery time.<br />

Results and downtime for all laser treatments<br />

vary depending on the depth and strength<br />

of treatment.
