The Stel­lar trial Skin needling

Sunday Herald Sun - Stellar - - Beauty -

This non-in­va­sive, anti-age­ing treat­ment aims to boost the pro­duc­tion of col­la­gen – the struc­tural pro­tein that gives young skin its plump, dewy ap­pear­ance.

A high-tech Tri-m wand de­vice with mi­cro nee­dles pierces the skin at high speed, reach­ing the deeper der­mis while leav­ing the outer layer in­tact. The re­sul­tant “chan­nels” are then flooded with an­tiox­i­dant-rich ac­tives that reg­u­late cell func­tion and im­prove skin’s ap­pear­ance.

Topi­cal anaes­thetic is not needed, be­cause the 30-minute treat­ment cre­ates a buzzing, not pain­ful, sen­sa­tion. Any red­ness sub­sides in two to four days.

Needling tar­gets fine lines as well as pig­men­ta­tion and loss of elas­tic­ity, and it can also help scar tis­sue fade.
