For our skin needling treatment we use a medical grade pen, this is a hand held device that has multiple tiny needles.
It is placed over the skin in several direction to cause micro injury of the skin through tiny punctures. These small contact points send your collagen production and elastin fibres into over drive, encouraging the body to create self healing process.
As the skin repairs, it renews and creates new skin cells which rebuilds collagen and elastin fibres. The pen also increases blood flow to the epidermis. Good blood supply is needed for cell regeneration and slows down ageing, it also gives us that youthful glow!
Who can have the treatment?
It is a great treatment for anyone one especially darker skin types because the pen keeps the outer skin intact causing little down time which other harsher treatments hold a risk of causing hyperpigmentation.
Condition that can be treated with a microneedling:
- Stretch marks
- Sun damage
- Uneven skin tone & pigmentation spots
Another advantage of having microneedling is that it can boost the power of your skin products, making them work much more effectively. Penetrating deeper into the skin layers where they are really needed.
Treatments can be performed on the body as well as the face, although prices do vary from area. Depending on clients individual needs a course of microneedling may be required to get the best results.
