Enhance and rejuvenate

Micro-needling therapy is also known as Collagen Induction Therapy. This treatment uses hundreds of tiny needles rolled across the skin to increase both collagen and elastin production in the skin and encourages hair growth. The procedure is designed to stimulate the skin, encouraging it to regenerate and repair itself resulting in smoother, brighter, younger and healthier skin.

Summary of treatment

  • Procedure time 45 minutes
  • Downtime usually no downtime although skin may appear red for a few hours
  • Results Vary depending on skin disorder or condition being treated
  • Duration of results is usually repeat treatments recommended once each month
  • Risks and complications - mild skin irritation and localised redness which settles quickly

Is Micro-Needling right for me?

Micro-needling has become a very popular non-invasive aesthetic rejuvenating treatment. It works by encouraging your skin to make more collagen. The minute pinpricks from the procedure causes the brain to signal that it needs to start healing processes by increasing collagen production. Collagen is the skin’s building blocks to provide volume and tightness and as we get older, production diminishes along with elastic which helps with lift.

This new skin tissue is, in turn, more even in tone and texture. It’s normal for the skin to lose collagen via age or injury. By encouraging the skin to make new tissue, there may be more collagen to help make the skin firmer, too.

The regenerative properties of Micro-needling are clinically proven for treating:

 

  • Acne Scarring
  • Photo-damaged and ageing skin
  • Improving fine lines & wrinkles to the face and décolleté
  • Diminishing the appearance of stretch marks
  • Minimising pore size
  • Alopecia
  • Micro-needling is also used to improve the appearance of stretch marks in other areas of the body.
