We offer both the latest Dermapen® and Mpen micro-needling treatments.
WHAT IS A MICRO-NEEDLING TREATMENT?
An advanced skin needling technique. This technology uses multiple needles (16) to vertically and precisely pierce the skin and activate your skin’s natural healing process. Effectively stimulating collagen production to improve skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles, acne, pigmentation and a variety of scars.
The fine channels created within the skin carry up to 80% more topical nutrients deep into the skin’s fibroblasts to feed the underlying cells found in the dermis an basal layers of the skin.
This increased absorption of the active ingredients into the skin, creates stimulated repair and faster resurfacing results.
IS DERMAPEN/ MPEN PAINFUL?
Minimum needle depths are basically painless, and for depths over 0.5mm a mild topical anaesthesia cream is applied ± 20 min before the treatment, therefore making the treatment pain free. After the treatment the face will show visible redness but there is no downtime and you can easily cover with a breathable foundation and continue with your daily activities.
HOW MANY MICRO-NEEDLING TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
Everyone’s skin is different so we do recommend coming in for a consultation to see if this is the right treatment for you. As a general guide line we recommend the following:
Rejuvenation: 4 -6 treatments (4 weeks apart)
Acne Scarring: 4-6 Treatments (6 weeks apart)
Stretch Marks: ± 10 treatments (6 weeks apart)
POST TREATMENT CARE
A good skin care regime is paramount in getting great results. Therefore in-between and post treatments ensure to keep you skin hydrated and protected, we recommend using a day and night cream to repair and nourish your skin as well as a high SPF sunblock during the day to ensure you are protected against harmful UVA and UVB rays throughout the day.
