Microneedling

Microneedling is an advanced skin treatment that can treat a wide variety of different concerns and is suitable for almost all skin types, carried out by a professional licensed skin practitioner using an electronic skin needling pen, or a derma-roller with a transdermal delivery concept using specially selected serums to induce and accelerate a trauma healing response to the skin, creating superficial micro channels which in return will stimulate the collagen & elastin production. Through controlled trauma-inducing the skin’s healing response is the only way new collagen production happens. This new collagen & elastin production forms a new layer of skin revealing a glowing radiant complexion, more youthful, smoother and firmer skin in appearance, and continues to work after the treatment for up to 2 years.   

Results are achieved through increased quantiles & access of cell nutrients to the skin, optimizing cell function, promoting EGF (Epidermal growth factor). Tiny open micro-channels created by the treatment allow product absorption of up to 80% directly to the Epidermal and Dermis layers, rather than the 8% topical application.    

Microneedling is used to treat and rejuvenate the signs of ageing, fine lines and wrinkles, rapidly reduces deeper set wrinkles, it can help tone and firm the skin by tightening in the skins natural healing response, it is used for treating scarring such as acne/surgical scarring or any scars on the face and body alongside stretch marks reduction or overall disappearance. Microneedling is used to reduce hyperpigmentation on the skin, face/body & melasma, sun damage, rosacea, uneven skin tone, loose skin, dull/dehydrated skins and open pores, improving the skin texture and complexion adding an instant plump volume to the skin, it can also be used on the scalp to treat hair thinning/loss & alopecia on the scalp by stimulating the hair follicles and feeding nutrients directly to the cell.  There are so many benefits from microneedling, with fantastic results, multiple concerns can be treated on the same session.  

A thorough consultation (Free) will need to be held prior to the treatment itself. This will be to discuss the treatment area, a clear realistic plan for treatment progress to achieve results and client suitability and any further questions you may have. This is an invasive treatment that will be a little discomforting depending on pain threshold and have some short downtime followed by aftercare.  To ensure we can deliver the best treatment for you we need to select specialized serums to cater for your treatment requirements. All of this will be decided on the day of consultation.

Microneedling is a safe procedure ensuring you are being treated only by a trained professional in MicroneedlingThere are risks involved in this treatment for infection as we are opening the micro-channels of the skin so ensuring you are following the correct after care advised there will be a minimal risk of infection. An aftercare sheet will be given to you at consultation. Any concerns on the day or after treatment you are more than welcome to call or send an email and have a rapid response for your client care. 

Directly after treatment there will be an erythema (reddening) response to the skin, possibly spotting of blood to the area and maybe some small bruising. Everyone’s skin reacts differently and depending on the treatment plan itself will depend how deep the needles will go. The deeper the needle depth doesn’t automatically mean deeper the results. We are wanting to see an erythema response to the skin. The skin will feel tight, warm and have a slight sunburn feel. Downtime of 24/48 hours depending on client sensitivity. After 3 days you will have some desquamation of the skin. This is where the skin’s healing response is happening and results get better each day, mostly by week 2/3 results from treatment are more visible. Using a Hyaluronic acid serum directly after up to two weeks is recommended for most effective results. 

All Microneedling treatments will involve use of an LED (Light Emitting Diode) light therapy directly after treatment to support & boost the treatment itself but also to help soothe and calm the skin with its own ability to treat many skin conditions. Aftercare products and an SPF will be applied before leaving the clinic. Expect redness to the area treated for up to 24-48hrs after treatment depending on sensitivity and treatment plan.
