about needling

Skin needling is a non-surgical skin rejuvenating procedure that encourages the regeneration of skin cells and the production of collagen and elastin resulting in plump, youthful skin. At You and Me Beauty we use only the most advanced Environ skin needling technology to provide a comfortable and targeted procedure that gets results. The needles are used to puncture the skin, creating a controlled skin injury. The procedure causes bleeding, releasing platelets (responsible for the regeneration of tissue and the build-up of collagen and elastin). Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin. As a result, there is a significant improvement in skin texture, firmness, pigmentation, fine lines, stretch marks, enlarged pores.

Needles on the Medical Rollers range between 1mm and 1.5mm long. These needles penetrate the papillary dermis and cause bleeding and discomfort, therefore the skin needs to be anaesthetized with an effective topical anaesthetic. The skin bleeds due to a minor injury when you do a number of passes over the same area, changing direction each time after lifting the roller off the skin. Once the area that is being needled bleeds it will eventually stop due to the platelets in the blood. The platelets cause the blood to clot, releasing growth factors in the skin that lead to the stimulation of healthy new collagen being laid down. The whole process of creating this mild injury is to trick the skin into healing itself. The more you needle, the better the results. A minimum of 6 sessions recommended.

Needles range between 0.1mm and 0.2mm in length; the instrument is purely to help cause tiny holes in the skin that enhance the penetration of active ingredients into the skin. In fact, it allows active ingredients deeper into the skin – cells function better and increase collagen production. Many people get confused and think that it is the trauma of the cosmetic needler that induces collagen due to mild injury, which is incorrect. It is a procedure that does not involve any pain, blood or the need for a topical anaesthetic
