The Natural Alternative to Botox

Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, Dermaroller or Dermal Roller treatment – Micro Needle Therapy (MNT) is a revolutionary skin needling treatment which is stimulating the body’s own collagen production to rejuvenate ageing skin, reduce wrinkles and diminish the appearance of common skin conditions such as indented scars, large pores and/or uneven skin tone.

How Does MNT Work?

How does it work? MNT is based on some of the same principles as cosmetic acupuncture. Ensuring comfort, a topical anaesthetic cream is applied before the treatment. The treatment involves a sterile roller or pen with a disposable needle head.

A single micro needle on a dermal pen makes a miniscule wound in the skin, although there is no damage outwardly to your face and you cannot see it or feel it as it’s on such a tiny scale. Despite this minute damage, the body’s natural healing mechanism kicks in. Collagen and elastin is produced in response to the needle entering the top layer of the skin. The existing collagen is not removed by this process, the new production adds to the levels that already exist.

Body’s Own Healing Mechanism

When we injure ourselves in one way or another we can observe how the wound or injury heals very quickly, usually leaving stronger tissue than before. This is the body’s own healing mechanism creating new collagen to repair itself. This intricate process is the basis behind MNT; the smallest of injuries are created to the face in order for our body to do what it does best and heal the skin. This repair and renewal process is what makes MNT such an exciting new treatment.

Natural, Safer and Less Invasive

MNT is a non-ablative treatment which is not only cost-effective but also a natural, safer and less invasive alternative to botox and treatments like Fraxel laser treatment, chemical peels or microdermabrasion. The result of MNT is healthier, smoother, softer and more radiant skin, which keeps improving even after weeks of the treatment.
