WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
The procedure triggers the body’s natural response to injury with a natural process of repair and in return increases the production of collagen, elastin, resurfacing and retexturizing of your skin anywhere on the body.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Your skin has a self-rejuvenating function that is capable of significantly reducing blemishes caused by acne, scarring, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles. Micro-needling activates this process by causing tiny punctures across the treated area. As your skin heals, it produces collagen which forms a new layer of fresh tissue, creating a more youthful appearance on the surface and fighting antibodies beneath.
Microneedling can treat many things including acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, skin texture, pore size, pigmentation, stretch marks and hair loss
Microneedling treatments have always been known to be painful treatments, however, with the new Dermapen4 there is no comparison. It has been labelled as the most comfortable and virtually pain free micro-needling treatment available. We can also apply topical numbing cream if requested.
The amount of treatments required depends on the treatment area and the person.
The general guide is as follows:
- Rejuvenation: 3-6 treatments
- Acne Scarring: 4-6 treatments
- Stretch Marks: 4-8 treatments
- Pigmentation: 4-6 treatments
You will usually see the results straight after the first treatments. More significant results will become visible after 3 to 6 treatments. The condition of your skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months after a course of treatments.
No but you may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment but generally you will be able to return to normal daily activities immediately after your treatment.
