Microneedling: mobilise your natural healing process for skin firmness, appearance, and texture

Microneedling is an extremely effective rejuvenation treatment – as effective as laser resurfacing, but causes a healing cascade without the associated downtime and potential adverse reactions of ablative treatments.

  • includes post-needling aftercare products
  • Quick 24 hour recovery time.
  • Little to no downtime (at worst, like a slight sunburn).
  • Beautiful, youthful-looking skin
  • Lasting results.

Typically, 3-6 treatments will give the best long-term results.

We use a microneedling pen, not a roller, which could tear the skin.






Description

Microneedling is a sought-after treatment because it can provide such a wide range of benefits.

Microneedling can:

  • Soften frown lines

  • Brighten your skin

  • Smooth & refine skin

  • Alleviate Signs of ageing

  • Lighten hyperpigmentation & sun spots (age spots, liver spots)

  • Reduce scars – acne scars, chicken pox scars, indented surgical scars

  • Improve poor skin texture

  • Make dull skin luminous

  • Shrink enlarged pores

  • Reduce diffused redness

  • Repair free-radical damage

  • Stimulate collagen

  • Plump out wrinkles

  • Firm & tone

  • Hydrate

  • Seal in moisture

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!

Very short recovery time.

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.

  • stimulates formation of new capillaries, leading to to reduction of scars and skin rejuvenation, i.e., improved skin texture, firmness and hydration.

  • can be used to treat Acne scarring, Rosacea, lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, scarring, open pores and encourage regrowth after hair loss

Treatment Details

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.

Procedure and applicability

We use a multi-needle pen for this treatment (not a dermaroller).

Pens like the Dermapen® and our m.pen[pro]™ have 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.

Roller Pen
Entry angle  Twists, can cause many small grooves  Needles go straight in and out
Head Size  Large; difficult to reach some areas  Small; can reach everywhere
Needle Depth  Fixed  Adjustable, so e.g. shallower on forehead, deeper on cheeks

The microneedling device

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.
