How does it work?
New tissue grows in the damaged skin.
White,purple and red scars begin to normalise.
Raised and bumpy scars smooth and flatten.
Gently break up tight, restricting and fibrous scar tissue.
Numb areas of burnt or scarred tissue may regain feeling.
How long before I see any results?
New collagen starts growing about 3 weeks after a treatment, and will continue to develop over the next coming weeks and months.
How many treatments and how long between treatments?
Three treatments are usually recommended, but depending on the severity of the scar more treatments may be necessary.
Six weeks between treatments, allows skin to heal.
After third treatment, allow 4 – 6 months before deciding if any more treatments are needed.
How long does the effect last?
For scars, burns and stretch marks the results are permanent.
The new smoother skin will not revert, however the natural ageing process will not be stopped.
For wrinkles and loose skin, maintenance treatments should be considered.
What will the area look like after a dry needling treatment?
After treatment the area will look very red, a little swelling.
This will last for a few days, area could even peel.
The skin then goes through a more natural and gentle healing process.
