SKINPEN MICRONEEDLING

SkinPen is a device which is run over the surface of the skin, creating micro-channels (microscopic holes) at a rate of 1600 per second. These tiny wounds stimulate your skin’s healing process into high gear causing a surge in collagen and elastin production. Just one treatment can replace all the collagen you loose naturally over a whole year! Best of all, SkinPen doesn’t rely on heat or chemicals so the results are natural and safe for all skin types. We can do this treatment on the face, neck and body – pretty much anywhere!

THE SCIENCE BEHIND MICRO-NEEDLING

The principle behind micro-needling is stimulating the skin's natural healing response. The controlled injuries caused by the needles prompt the skin to repair itself, leading to a thicker dermis with the improved vascular supply. This process not only enhances the skin's structural integrity but also makes it more receptive to topical treatments, as the micro-channels created allow for better absorption of skincare products.

SOME OF THE INCREDIBLE BENEFITS OF MICRO-NEEDLING

1. Improves Skin Texture and Tone: Regular micro-needling sessions can result in smoother, more radiant skin. The treatment effectively reduces the appearance of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles, leading to a more youthful complexion.

2. Reduces Scars and Hyperpigmentation: Micro-needling is particularly effective in diminishing acne scars, surgical scars, and other forms of scarring. It also tackles hyperpigmentation and sunspots, promoting an even skin tone by dispersing pigment clusters and stimulating melanin synthesis.

3. Enhances Collagen and Elastin Production: Perhaps the most significant benefit of micro-needling is its ability to boost collagen and elastin, the proteins responsible for the skin's firmness and elasticity. Increased production helps to reduce signs of aging and can improve the overall health of the skin.

4. Minimises Stretch Marks: Few treatments can address stretch marks as effectively as micro-needling. The procedure can significantly reduce their appearance by rebuilding collagen in the stretch mark itself.

WHAT TO EXPECT & AFTERCARE

Micro-needling is generally well tolerated, but it can cause temporary redness, swelling, and sensitivity post-treatment. These effects typically subside within 24 hours. Patients are advised to avoid direct sun exposure and to use broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect the skin. It's also recommended to avoid makeup for at least 24 hours post-treatment to prevent irritation.
