Microneedling in detail

How does it work?

Micro needling involves using tiny, sterile needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible micro-skin channels in the top layer of the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate the skin’s natural ability to heal itself. This results in increased cell turnover, enhanced collagen and elastin production, leading to reversing, as well as preventing signs of aging.

What are the benefits

Microneedling Reduces Fine Lines and Deep Wrinkles

The main attraction of micro needling is its ability to stimulate growth of collagen and elastin, which is the key to new, youthful-looking skin. The skin’s own natural wound healing process is activated, producing new collagen, and plumping and tightening of the skin.

 

Microneedling Repairs Visible Scars

Micro injuries are formed in the skin that actively brake up existing scar tissue. This process encourages the production of new collagen fibers that work to build healthy skin in the scarred area.

 

Microneedling Reverses Sun Damage and Pigmentation

Sun damage and pigmentation is a leading indication for those seeking microneedling treatments. This treatment is highly effective particularly on dark skin colors. The treatment normalises cellular function by targeting melanocytes (the pigment forming cell within the skin)

 

Microneedling Helps Aging Skin

Micro Needling’s function is to smooth and correct damaged skin and is additionally enhanced by its ability to firm and tighten. This makes it an ideal treatment for more mature and older skin, for both men and women.

 

Microneedling Reduces Enlarged or Open Pores

Micro needling stimulates collagen in and around pores which causes the skin to plump up and so the pores to appear reduced and minmised.

 

Microneedling Makes Cosmetic Products Work Better

The treatment can help topical medication penetrate skin more efficiently, aiding the full medical benefits of any product.

 

Microneedling Can Be Done All Over Your Body Treating Cellulite and Stretch Marks

A remarkable benefit of microneedling is that this treatment isn’t exclusive to the face. It can be done on any area of skin that needs to be repaired, particularly areas that display stretch marks like legs, chest, back, and buttocks.

Who is suitable for Microneedling?

The ideal candidate for micro needling is someone looking for an effective, safe and affordable way to minimise or eliminate common skin imperfections such as fine lines, pigmentation, enlarged pores, and to help with dull aging skin.

Treatment plan

Micro Needling can be completed in 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the area that is being treated. A relaxing hydrating face mask will be applied after the procedure.
