      MICRONEEDLING

      What is Microneedling?

      Microneedling is a therapy that uses extremely fine needles to puncture the skin many thousands of times in order to induce a healing response, stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin within the skin, thereby improving its appearance and texture. Microneedling can also be used to improve unsightly scarring and has the advantage over laser and chemical peel resurfacing that it can be used safely in darker skin types.

      Biologically active agents such as Stem Cell Serum may be used to further enhance the effects of micro needling during and following the procedure.

      Indications

      • Fine lines and wrinkles
      • 
Scarring including acne scars
      • Dark under-eye circles
      • 
Dull skin texture
      • Hair loss

      How is Microneedling performed?

      The skin is thoroughly cleansed and a local anaesthetic cream is applied and left to take effect. The needling procedure is undertaken with a device, gliding over the skin repeatedly until the entire area has been treated. Application of cosmeceutical products, carried by the needles into the tissues using this technique may further enhance this effect.

      What to expect following Microneedling?

      There may be some redness, and possibly pinprick bleeding. A flushed appearance may persist for several days. Normal activities may be resumed more or less immediately. For best results a course of treatments are recommended over several weeks.

      • Skin inflammation
