Also known as Dermaroller and Dermapen and referred to as collagen induction therapy, is a process whereby creating minor injuries where skin has been damaged, microneedling encourages your body to repair damaged skin through increased production of collagen and elastin. This innovative treatment can reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles ,scar tissue, stretch marks and cellulite.
Prior to your Microneedling treatment, a topical anaesthetic cream will be applied to numb the skin. Comfortable pressure on the skin and the movement of the Flawless Pen may be felt during treatment.
Immediately after treatment the skin will appear red and flushed, and may feel tight and warm. This is a normal occurrence, and will begin to subside over the next few hours. In most cases, this subsides completely over 24 hours, with perhaps a slight flush to the skin the following day. We recommend that make-up is not reapplied for 24 hours following treatment, and where possible, that this is mineral based. Full aftercare advice will be given to you by your aesthetician,.
Results following a Microneedling treatment can take up to 6 weeks to appear, and as the repair process continues over the following months, these will begin to become more noticeable. We recommend a course of 3 treatments, carried out 4 weeks apart for optimum skin regeneration.
Microneedling can be used to treat the face for acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles and skin rejuvenation. Unlike dermaroller treatments, It can also be used on the body to improve the appearance of stretchmarks. Pricing for the treatment of stretchmarks may vary depending on the treatment area and size of the area, however a full consultation with our aestheticians will help determine a package price for you.
