Overview
Information
Process

MicroNeedling is one of the most effective and versatile skin rejuvenation methods with the least downtime.

Micro-needling involves a trained aesthetic practitioner using a handheld device to create hundreds of microscopic sterile needle impressions in the skin on the face or body at controlled depths according to indications. As the treatment pen is passed over the face/body, it creates micro-injuries and prompts a natural healing response that stimulates collagen formation. The tiny channels in the skin made by the needles also allow for deeper absorption of topical treatments during and after the treatment. Best results with a course of 4 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart.

Skin is thoroughly yet gently cleansed and optionally exfoliated. If required, topical anaesthetic may be applied. The skin is then disinfected and a suitable treatment serum is applied to the skin. The therapist will then perform the microneedling treatment. LED lights may also be incorporated. Treatment is concluded with a suitable moisturiser and SPF.
