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 your practitioner 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.
CONDITIONS TREATED include:
- Large pores
- Lines and wrinkles
- Loss of volume
- Dull skin
HOW DOES IT FEEL?
A topical numbing cream can be applied to the area before carrying out Dermapen treatments to ensure treatments are comfortable. 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 several 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.
