What is Microneedling and how does it work?

Microneedling, a cosmetic procedure, involves using tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries on the skin’s surface, triggering the body’s natural healing response and prompting the production of new collagen and elastin.

This process, fueled by your skin’s own growth factors, results in the formation of new collagen-rich tissue, enhancing the skin’s texture and tone for a more youthful and radiant appearance.

Essentially, microneedling stimulates collagen production, ultimately rejuvenating the skin in a natural manner.

As skin naturally loses collagen through age or injury, this treatment aids in rebuilding and rejuvenating the skin in a natural way.

What is Microneedling good for?

This is a versatile cosmetic procedure renowned for its ability to address various skin concerns effectively, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles

  • Acne scars

  • Enlarged pores

  • Uneven skin tone

  • Sun damage

  • Hyperpigmentation

  • Stretch marks

  • Loss of skin elasticity (Sagging skin)

What is SkinPen Microneedling?

The SkinPen microneedling device is an award-winning medical-grade, state-of-the-art precision tool available only through medical professionals. SkinPen works by creating thousands of micro-injuries to the dermis of your skin to stimulate your own natural production of new collagen and elastin.

You may see improvement after only one treatment, however, a series of 3-6 treatments is typically recommended. Our experienced team will advise you on the best treatment protocol to suit your needs.

We usually recommend combining microneedling with ‘PRP’ or platelet-rich plasma. This kick-starts the new collagen production and the benefits are increased.

We will provide you with an aftercare cream (free of charge) to use in the first 24 hours to protect your skin.

What areas can be treated with SkinPen microneedling?

SkinPen microneedling can be used on most areas of the body, including the face, neck, and hands.

Is SkinPen microneedling the same as Dermaroller?

In a word, no. There are 2 main types of microneedling; one with a roller device (such as Dermarolla) and one with a mechanised pen device (such as SkinPen). It is generally accepted nowadays that the pen device gives a more controlled and precise treatment. The SkinPen device is the ONLY device that is approved by the FDA in America.

Is SkinPen microneedling safe?

SkinPen microneedling is generally considered safe when administered by a licensed and experienced professional. The treatment has been approved by the MHRA in the UK and the FDA in the USA and has a long track record of safety.

What is the recovery time after microneedling?

The great thing about this treatment is there’s really no significant downtime. Straight afterwards you will be a bit red of face for the first day and then the next couple of days the skin may be slightly pink or dry but nothing major — you can still do your normal things.

We will provide you with an aftercare cream (free of charge) to use in the first 24 hours to protect your skin.

Does microneedling hurt?

No. Before the treatment is carried out you will have prescription-strength ‘numbing’ cream applied to the treatment area. This ensures you will be comfortable and relaxed throughout.

How long does it take to see results from SkinPen microneedling?

The timeframe for seeing results can vary depending on the individual and the severity of the skin condition. Some patients may see improvements within a few weeks, while others may take several months to see significant results.

Are there any side effects from SkinPen microneedling?

The most common side effects of this treatment include redness and swelling at the treatment site, but these are usually temporary and subside within a few days.

Who is a good candidate for SkinPen microneedling?

This treatment is typically recommended for individuals who want to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging, as well as reduce the visibility of acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and other skin conditions.

Our team will evaluate your individual needs and goals to determine whether SkinPen microneedling is the right treatment option for you.
