Most wrinkles are associated with aging changes in skin. Aging of the skin and skin structures (hair and nails) is a natural process.
Frequent exposure to sunshine results in premature skin wrinkling and increased pigmentation (liver spots). It also increases the likelihood of skin cancer. Exposure to cigarette smoke is another environmental factor that increases wrinkling of the skin.
Nothing can be done to decrease the rate of skin aging, but many environmental factors will increase the rate.

Skin needling, also called micro-needling therapy, is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. The needles are used to puncture the skin to create a controlled skin injury. Each puncture creates a channel that provides a pathway for powerful skin rejuvenating solution to penetrate into the skin. Moreover, natural healing force of skin is activated to cure these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin.
Dry, dehydrated skin
Sun damage (photoaging)
Recent Roaccutane therapy
Pregnancy and breast-feeding
Recent sun exposure
A course of 3-5 treatments is recommended
A new concept for natural enhancement of the collagen production of the dermis layer An innovative intradermal system that delivers active cosmetic ingredients to the deeper dermis layer and stimulates natural collagen production by launching wound healing processes. Microstructure technique Needle rolling can be an alternative to laser skin renewal in patients who can not undergo laser surgery or seek less invasive, less attractive, risk. Traditional skin regeneration treatments are generally expensive and invasive, eg. deep cleansing or laser technology. In some cases, unfortunately, they produce uneven or frustrating results. Needle rolling offers a safer alternative to reduce wrinkles, improve acne scars, pigmentation and streaks.
