Micro Needling

Skin Needling

Skin Needling is also know as Micro Needling – It uses the Dermaroller as an alternative to surgical procedures. This treatment is aimed to help skin rejuvenation, it targets skin tightening, acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation.

Significantly improving the appearance of facial and décolleté lines and wrinkles, sun damaged and ageing skin.

Acne scars and stretch marks have never been easier to remove thanks to the innovative award-winning non-surgical skin regeneration procedure from micro-needling. The Micro-Needling therapy provides advanced micro-medical skin-needling, a procedure that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier younger-looking skin your practitioner will use a medical device to produce thousands of micro-medical needle-columns in the skin.

Each column will penetrate into the dermis of the skin and will be approximately 0.1mm in width. The column will close rapidly enabling the skin to recover quickly – often the same day. Your practitioner will use a topical anaesthetic to numb the skin making the procedure more comfortable. It will normally take up to 30 minutes for the topical anaesthetic to work and 20 – 30 minutes for the procedure.

After your treatment your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, working below the surface in the dermis. This takes time as new collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced. It can take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair are seen and the process will continue over the following months, providing you with a natural and long lasting enhancement.

Your practitioner will normally recommend that your Micro-needling treatment consists of a series of three procedures with approximately 6 weeks between them. In the treatment of acne scars and other types of scarring it may be necessary for your practitioner to extend your therapy, carrying up to five procedures.
