WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
Microneedling is a type of treatment that uses
small needles to cause tiny punctures in the skin.
These small contact points encourage the body
to create a wound healing response and renew
the skin cells. As your skin repairs, the production of
collagen and elastin is triggered to give an almost
immediate plumping effect. It can also help tackle
other skin damage such as scarring, dark marks,
sun damage and ageing.
WHAT IS DERMAPEN?
Dermapen uses a unique electronic mechanism
which allows to control treatment intensity to tailor
the treatment to your needs. A solution is also
applied to the skin, containing hyaluronic acid,
minerals, vitamins and peptides. These act by
stimulating cell proliferation and so improving skin
contours and elasticity.
HOW DOES IT FEEL?
A topical numbing cream is applied to the area before carrying out Derma-pen treatments to ensure any pain is minimised. Variable treatment intensities allow us to further control the comfort of the treatment.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
You will see a plumping effect almost immediately, however the natural healing process takes time, so it can take up to six weeks before you see significant results – although some improvements can be seen much sooner. The process will continue over the following months and 8-10 treatments are usually required.
WHAT IS THE AFTERCARE?
After your treatment, your skin will appear red and flushed; a normal sign that the treatment is working and will subside within a few days. SPF 30 should be worn daily following on from the treatment for at least two weeks. An ongoing effective daily skincare regime is crucial to help promote and achieve optimum results.
