Microneedling: Enhance skin firmness, volume and elasticity, non-invasively
Microneedling is an extremely effective rejuvenation treatment – as effective as laser resurfacing, but without the associated significant downtime and potential adverse reactions of ablative treatments.
When will i see results?
Improvements may be seen after a single procedure, although full results require time for skin regrowth.
Really significant results can be seen with as few as 3 consecutive treatments!

How microneedling works
triggers your body’s healing response
stimulates collagen and elastin production, (improving elasticity and firmness, and hence minimising lines and wrinkles)
gives active ingredients a direct route to where they can work, vastly improving their effect.
can be used to treat Acne scarring, Rosacea, lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, scarring, open pores and encourage regrowth after hair loss
Procedure and applicability
We use a multi-needle pen for this treatment (not a dermaroller).
The m.pen[pro]™ has an array of tiny sterile needles at the tip of the pen to make channels of appropriate depth in the skin, without the tearing associated with dermaroller treatments.
Signs of ageing – lines and wrinkles, loss of skin firmness
Hyperpigmentation – sun spots (age spots)
Scars – acne scars, chicken pox scars, indented surgical scars
Poor skin texture
Microneedling (also called Collagen Induction Therapy) is a type of treatment that uses a handheld device holding tiny sterile needles to create minute channels in the skin.
These small pinpricks prompt the body to create a natural wound healing response, which renews the skin cells.
As part of this response, the dermis, the deeper structural layer of skin, is prompted to rebuild, triggering the production of collagen and elastin. This often gives an almost immediate plumping effect.
The micro-channels allow topically applied actives like Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid (the active used in Dermal Fillers) to reach the deeper layers of the skin and so treatments with medical-grade microneedling devices can provide very effective skin rejuvenation.
Specifically, it can be used to treat Acne scarring, Rosacea, lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, scarring, open pores and encourage regrowth after hair loss
Microneedling is a fabulous treatment for all skin types; not only is it minimally invasive, but because it does not remove the surface layer or dead skin cells like lasers or peels there is far less risk of pigmentation issues making it suitable for even those with darker skin tones.
We use the m.pen[pro]™, a mechanised hand held device from the renowned and hugely respected pharmaceutical company Mesoestetics. The pen’s small head allows more precise placement of the microchannels, letting us work safely under and around the eyes, treating ‘crow’s feet’ and frown lines and between the nose and mouth; plus, its variable speed and depth settings allow the treatment to be tailored to make it more comfortable.
It can also help to stimulate collagen and elastin under the eye area where we first begin to lose volume, which will in return help to disguise dark circles and eyebags.
It’s the ideal solution if you’re looking for an alternative to wrinkle-relaxing injections or dermal fillers.
