Skin needling goes by various names in the skin and medical community, including Dermarolling, Percutaneous Collagen Induction (PCI), Collagen Induction Therapy, Dry Tattooing and Intradermabrasion.
Pioneered by Dr. Andre Camirand in the late 1990s as an evolutionary step from scar Subcision®, it simply involves the use of manually applied skin rollers that have around 200 fine surgical steel needles attached to the roller mechanism.
It’s applied directly to the skin in a crisscross motion. The objective is to stimulate or puncture the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production, smooth skin and promote scar or stretch mark reduction through the skins natural wound healing process.
For the medical grade level application of skin needling, the target of the needles and penetration is the upper dermis called the intermediate reticular dermis.
DIFFERENT NEEDLES, DIFFERENT OUTCOMES
A roller with wide-gauge, short needles that are under 0.25 mm in length is generally non-invasive and cannot cause trauma to the skin, but rather it stimulates and provides gentle exfoliation while increasing superficial circulation.
This action, much like manual massage and other electrical modalities, may enhance the penetration and absorption of active ingredients into the deeper layers of the skin. Therefore, additional age-fighting skin benefits can be achieved when skin needling is combined with products that contain collagen-boosting and skin-fortifying ingredients like Retinol, Vitamin C and Peptides.
