Microneedling has taken the dermatology and skincare world by storm. It is a system comprised of a sterile, single use, automated tip made up of an array of microscopic needles which penetrate the skin to a fully controllable depth. The micro channels thus created allow for rubbing in active ingredients which would otherwise never penetrate the skin.
Microneedling has taken the beauty world by storm as it has developed into a truly effective skin rejuvenator thanks to ever more clever combinations. Microneedling uses a minimally invasive device with fine needles to create tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the stem cells to stimulate new collagen and elastin production. This process helps to rejuvenate the skin, improve texture and firmness, and reduce scars, pore size and stretch marks. Actives such as PRP, exosomes and peptides are the latest addition as they penetrate beautifully via the micro channels and further enhance the results.
Patients typically experience minimal discomfort during Microneedling. We apply a topical anesthetic before the procedure to reduce any pain or discomfort. Most patients describe the sensation as a mild prickling feeling.
A Microneedling session usually takes about 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the area being treated and the specific needs of your skin. We always ensure to provide a thorough and effective treatment in a comfortable timeframe.
Post-treatment, you may notice some redness and mild swelling, similar to a slight sunburn, for a few days. These are typical and indicate the healing process. Depending on the depth of the Microneedling, patients return to their normal activities within 1 to 3 days.
The number of sessions depends on your skin’s condition and your desired results. Generally,patients see noticeable improvements after 1-3 treatments, spaced about 4-6 weeks apart. During your consultation, we will create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
Because there is no heat involved, Microneedling is suitable for all skin types and is particularly effective for those wanting to reduce the appearance of skin irregularities, scars, fine wrinkles and large pores. It's ideal for individuals seeking a minimally invasive way to achieve a smoother, firmer, and more youthful complexion. It is one of our most popular treatments among our younger groups because it requires very little downtime.
