Frequently asked questions
How does Medical Micro Needling work?
When expertly performed by our experienced clinician, medical micro-needling causes a change in micro-electrical currents flowing between cells (demarcation currents), triggering a cascade of growth factors production. These growth factors cause the formation of new blood vessels, stimulating critical new blood flow to the dermis followed by the migration of new fibroblast cells. The result is a harvest of new, strong and healthy collagen fibers filling the dermis.
The first phase begins with the release of the bodies growth factors and the further cascade of new epidermal growth, fibroblast chemo-taxis, fibroblast proliferation and matrix production. This proliferation of the body’s tissue continues to release growth factors from fibroblasts, keratinocytes and monocytes.

The second phase of wound healing invloves deposition of collagen III, IV and I, elastin, proteoglycans, and GAG’s. The last phase results in tissue remodeling where the skins vascular matrix matures and skin tightening as well as new collagen can be seen. The body’s ability to remodel and heal itself is at the heart of this amazing process.
