Microneedling is a procedure that uses small needles to prick the skin so as to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin. By creating thousands of microscopic punctures in the skin, the body naturally kicks into trauma response; which results in healing and rejuvenation.
Anaesthetic is not required for this treatment, although we do utilise a topical anesthetic cream to make the procedure more comfortable.
Results from this treatment can be seen from the first couple of days following treatment as it plumps the skin and makes it look more radiant. While in the long term, consistent Microneedling will multiply collagen production in the skin. Collagen is an essential protein that helps keep the skin looking youthful, with a firm, smooth, and stretchy texture.
Whether you are looking for a treatment to tackle acne or acne scarring, deep lines, or stretch marks, you won’t get a better result than with a SkinPen. With 14 Japanese needles, we can create thousands of micro-channels in a matter of minutes. The 14 very fine needles within the Microneedling device target specific areas of the face, penetrating at a range of depths to target the skin with deep precision. In addition to precise targeting for fantastic results, SkinPen Precisions’ new patented Microneedling cartridge offers unsurpassed safety. It is the only 100% sealed cartridge currently on the market and operates a single-use lockout feature, preventing cross-contamination.
This is by far the best product in the market for Microneedling, which makes the SkinPen the only Microneedling device we approve of and uses for our patients’ treatments.
Microneedling is a treatment that uses a mechanical needling device as a controlled method of causing micro-injury to the skin, stimulating the body’s healing and regenerative process.
No one wants to look older than they are. But premature aging that presents as fine lines and wrinkles does just that. Skin can also lose collagen due to injuries, such as acne scarring, stretch marks, or other scars. Traditionally known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), Microneedling fights fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and other skin concerns by stimulating collagen production.
Microneedling is ideal for patients who are not keen on having invasive procedures and those who require more than superficial microdermabrasion. This course of treatment is also perfect for those who have suffered from acne or have other skin problems such as scars, stretch marks, or pitting.
Microneedling has an important role in maintaining our collagen and reducing one the 3D’s, deterioration of our skin. Other facial changes include deflation and descent. See Full Face Lift.
When implemented by an experienced professional, Microneedling can be extremely useful in treating most skin-related issues, including:
● Signs of ageing
● Stretch marks
● Large pores
● Sun damage
● Skin pigmentation issues
Microneedling is commonly used on the face. However, the process can also be beneficial in other areas, such as the neck and hands. Microneedling also improves the effectiveness of topical products as the skin absorbed the creams, serums, and gels more readily than before. Microneedling awesome effects are comparable to laser and chemical peel treatments but without the long downtime
Microneedling is generally considered to be safe and effective, but like any procedure, it has risks. Common side effects of the procedure include:
-Discomfort at the site
-Redness and bruising, common for first 48 hours.
-Dryness or flaking of the skin
However, most of these should disappear after a few days. After your treatment, you should avoid swimming and using irritating soap for a while. Make up is not advised for the first 5 days.
Also, Microneedling might be the ideal treatment for people looking to get rid of keloid scarring or have a current skin infection.
A single session at Dr. Aesthetica is £175 and includes an aftercare kit.See here
for more information regarding prices for multiple sessions. Often several sessions are needed before the desired changes are achieved.
Though the duration to see t results will vary slightly from person to person; on average you can expect to enjoy the benefits of the treatment within a couple of weeks. The exact duration of the results of Microneedling depends on how your skin responds, your skin type, and other factors such as the severity of your skin issue. Remember Microneedling is not a quick fix. The benefits of the new collagen production often take some time to show fully because your body is actually repairing itself and growing new skin tissue. Collagen is typically formed between 30 and 200 days. A single session can see an increase of 45% of collagen.
