Microneedling uses small needles to cause tiny punctures in the skin.
We are pleased to offer Microneedling, which now leads the way in skin rejuvenation.
Needling the skin with tiny needles will produce a very mild degree of trauma. This trauma causes the skin to heal itself, creating new collagen and epidermal growth factors in abundance.
Hundreds of tiny punctures are created using the epidermaroller, these will close in minutes following treatment. As always with our treatments, safety is key.
Overview of Microneedling
A professional microneedling treatment is intended to cause a degree of trauma to the skin. This trauma stimulates new collagen cells in abundance.
The ageing process, low body weight, regular intense exercise, smoking, drinking, diet and the environment all impact the production of collagen and elastin.
By creating 1000s of minor wounds the skin begins to heal itself, as would any wound, in 3 stages:
- Inflammation (erythema, oedema and the release of growth factors)
- Proliferation (fibroblast stimulation, creating new collagen cells)
- Tissue remodelling (collagen continues to build and contraction takes place)
Having created 1000s of these micro channels we can optimise this treatment by flooding the skin with active ingredients, which will work at a cellular level and be at their most efficacious. By adding these serums greater results can be achieved.
Whilst this treatment is certainly not pain free (ample numbing cream is applied prior to treatment), it does offer a more economical solution to some other ablative therapies. It has limited exclusionaries/contraindications, very limited downtime and, when delivered safely no side effects.
It is an ideal treatment for:
- Pitted acne scarring
- Ice pick scarring
- Stretch marks
- Anti-ageing, lines, wrinkles and lax skin
- Hair Restoration
- No downtime
- No side effects
- Suits all skin types
