Micro-needling therapy has been around for many years, and various devices have been utilised to inflict micro-injuries on the skin to stimulate collagen production. Initially, skin rolling and skin stamping were the treatments available in NZ, but now the latest and most effective device called Dermafrac has become available in New Zealand.
It is an automatic micro-needling device that has been proven to be as effective as ablative laser treatments such as Fraxel, IPL, laser resurfacing and chemical peels and all with little to no downtime!
It helps the skin texture by improving fine lines, wrinkles and minimising pore size. It can also help by reducing scarring from old acne or a newer wound. It can also be used to treat alopecia, improve stretchmarks, and lift abnormal pigmentation.Micro-needling infusion therapy is an advanced aesthetic treatment used to target many skin concerns including fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, brown spots and pigmentation, open pores, congested skin, mild acne scarring, and dry and dehydrated skin.
The science behind the procedure is as follows:
INJURY TO TISSUE -> INFLAMMATION OF THE TISSUE ->GROWTH FACTOR RELEASE -> FIBROBLAST MULTIPLICATION -> ELASTIN AND COLLAGEN SYNTHESIS
