How does micro-needling work?

Micro-Needling skin therapy is a multi-function treatment that uses small needles to cause tiny punctures in the skin.

These small contact points encourage the body to create a wound healing response and renew the skin cells. As your skin repairs, serum growth factors stimulate new collagen and elastin development. This treatment is most commonly used to combat acne and surgical scarring, enlarged pores, fine lines and wrinkles, loose and non-elastic skin and stretch marks.

This micro-needling treatment is based on the natural rejuvenating power of the skin. Shortly after any injury to the human skin, old and damaged skin tissue dissolves and is replaced by new cells. The gentle, controlled needling method used in the Derma FNS™ Micro-Needle skin therapy encourages this organic self-repair mechanism on a microcosmic scale. 

The thin needles are used to gently penetrate the skin and create micro-injuries that trigger the synthesis of new collagen. This method is extremely effective and is hugely popular with clients who prefer a rejuvenation method involving significantly less epidermal damage than alternative treatments.

Derma FNS™ comes with disposable, sterilised individual micro-needling tips; each tip has multiple stainless steel micro-needles. The tip depth can be adjusted between .25mm to 2.1mm depending on your specific needs and different treatment areas. This allows the needles to be adjusted during your session for optimal results on facial contours and the delicate features such as your eyes, nose and mouth.
