It is believed that skin needling originated from an old Traditional Chinese treatment. Acupuncture needles would be inserted beneath scar tissue with a view that this would stimulate the healing process and reduce the scar tissue. The very first recorded use of needles was originally designed for product absorption back in 1998. It was discovered that inserting micro needles 0.15mm in length and left in the skin for ten seconds increased the products absorption into the skin by a 10,000-fold increase.

Skin needling also called skin needling therapy, collagen induction therapy (CIT), and percutaneous collagen induction (PCI), is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles attached to a roller. Skin needling is aimed at stimulating the body’s own collagen production to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, shrinking pore size, skin laxity and scarring such as that caused by acne or chicken pox. It has also been successfully applied to the indication of hair restoration in cases of alopecia.
Skin needling is the use of a roller with fine, titanium micro needles, which is glided over the skin to create small controlled injuries. The concept of skin needling is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, burns and other abrasions. Immediately after an injury occurs to the skin our body reuses the damaged collagen and elastin fibres as well as other damaged skin components to produce new ones. Skin needling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro “injuries” in the skin which triggers new collagen synthesis yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin.
