Microneedling is an advanced nonsurgical cosmetic procedure. By triggering the body’s wound healing response, it is effective in treating a wide variety of skin concerns including acne scarring, large pores, and wrinkles. It can also be used for regulating skin pigmentation and treating sun damage.

What can i expect during treatment?

We advise all clients to avoid using any products or make-up on the skin on the day of treatment. However, if you are unable to do this, please arrive early to allow ample time for our practitioners to cleanse the skin and check for any sun exposure damage or irritation. The microneedling device is then passed over the area to be treated, inserting tiny needles into the skin. This leaves minute puncture wounds stimulating the body to repair the skin cells in that area and encouraging the production of collagen and elastin. This causes the areas of the skin to plump, thereby causing a reduction in wrinkles, scarring and sun damage. It has also proven effective for the repair of stretchmarks, especially when combined with radio frequency.

How does it work

The Dermapen is passed over the area to be treatment, inserting tiny needles into the skin. This leaves minute puncture wounds which triggers the body’s wound healing response and encourages the body to renew skin cells in that area. While the skin is repairing, the production of collagen and elastin is increased, plumping the area and causing a reduction in wrinkles, scarring and sun damage.
