Microneedling Treatment

Microneedling is a fairly new but very popular procedure that has become the new hero treatment in the fight against the signs of ageing, scaring,  stretch marks and hyperpigmentation.

The procedure involves the use of an automated pen with a disposable cartridge of very fine needles. The micro punctures that are created on the skin trigger the body’s natural wound healing process which results in increased collagen and elastin production. As there is minimal damage to the upper layer of the skin, the superficial needle holes close very rapidly, making this a minimally invasive procedure.

Microneedling is performed after a topical numbing cream has been left on the skin for approximately 20 minutes to ensure a more comfortable treatment. Following the procedure, pinpoint bleeding can be expected. This settles very quickly and by the time the treatment is over, the only visible after  effect is some redness and possibly some swelling( a sign of the desired inflammation in the skin). This may persist for a few days.

The thickening of the skin that results from increased cell turnover and the renewal process means that a very real improvement is visible after each treatment within 15 days and keeps improving over the following 3-4 weeks.

Depending on the desired outcome, a number of treatments may be recommended, spaced 4 weeks apart.
