What is Micro-needling?
Skin Needling is a revolutionary skin rejuvenation treatment that creates healthier, younger looking skin, and helps to reduce the appearance of scars. As a form of collagen induction therapy, needling is regarded by many to be as effective as laser resurfacing. Skin is stimulated with adjustable length of needles in such a way to stimulate natural production of collagen and elastin that plumps, fills, and firms while leaving the dermis. Skin is smoother and younger looking, and results are much longer lasting than what can be achieved with fillers or botox injections.
Skin Needling has been performed for many years, using a variety of instruments, to soften depressed scars and deep facial lines. The evolution of skin needling (aka skin abrasion, collagen induction therapy, needling) for its common use today began in the early 20th century, in 1905.
Is micro-needling painful?
This varies from person to person and their pain tolerance. ROXSpa will apply a topical numbing agent before the procedure to reduce any discomfort. Majority of patients find the treatment very tolerable and report having a sensation of light sunburn immediately post treatment.
