Micro-needling is a minimally invasive procedure used for skin rejuvenation. Similar to laser skin resurfacing, it creates micro-wounds through the skin surface to penetrate deeper into the epidermis. This stimulates a healing response in the deeper skin layers, while leaving the epidermis relatively intact. The healing response causes inflammation and causes platelets to aggregate, depositing growth factors that ultimately lead to the body producing new collagen and elastin while increasing blood flow to the skin. This results in skin tightening, lifting and rejuvenation. Micro-needling can be performed with a pen or a roller- at CHG, we prefer the pen as there is a more controlled creation of micro wounds, that remain vertical through the skin surface.

Microneedling treatments are adjusted to different depths- to treat different skin issues. Micro-needling is one of the safest skin treatment procedures and can be used on every skin type. It is commonly used to improve facial scars, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles and stretch marks. Unlike laser skin resurfacing, which also works by causing micro-wounds, Micro-needling does not use cause any thermal damage to the skin surface. There is much less downtime associated with the procedure and it is safer, even for darker skin types.

At CHG, our Aesthetic Care Plan combines Micro-needling with PRP and dedicated skincare regimen to further enhance the skin rejuvenation effects.*
