The effect of Surgical Needling is based on activating the body’s own regeneration mechanisms and forming new, healthy skin components – especially the protein collagen, which gives your skin firmness and elasticity. The end result, however, takes some time. You can therefore not expect the desired improvement to take place immediately. It takes several months until the natural renewal processes of the skin are completely completed and the Surgical Needling has reached its maximum effect.
In order to trigger the regeneration processes, we generate thousands of punctiform bleedings in the Surgical Needling. The bleeding acts as an information mediator: it gives the skin cells the signal to release the body’s own growth factors and to produce collagen. In this way we can also treat deep and large scars. Since we work with very fine needles during the Surgical Needling and the skin immediately closes again, the bleeding stops as soon as the treatment is completed.
The bleeding does not lead to complications or persistent pain. However, in the first days after the treatment, the consequences of this bleeding and the intended healing reaction may appear on your skin. Usually the skin after a Surgical Needling is strongly reddened and a little swollen.
Good to know: Since this is a natural procedure, a Surgical Needling can be repeated as often as desired. The prerequisite is that the skin had enough time to regenerate between two procedures.
