Microneedling harnesses your natural repair mechanisms in the skin to boost collagen, reduce lines & wrinkles and effectively treat scars, including acne scars
SkinPen is the only FDA regulated microneedling device for safety & effectiveness.
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.
HOW MICRONEEDLING WORKS
Microneedling works by encouraging your skin to make more collagen. The idea is that pinpricks from the procedure cause slight injury to the skin and that signals the skin (by way of your own natural growth factors) to respond by making new collagen-rich tissue.
This new skin tissue is, in turn, more even in tone and texture. It’s normal for the skin to lose collagen via age or injury and this treatment will help you rebuild and rejuvenate your skin in a natural way.
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.
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?
Nope. 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.
