Microneedling Skin Treatment
Microneedling treatment is a fantastic alternative to wrinkle injections, filler, glycolic or TCA skin peels and micro-dermabrasion for skin rejuvenation because it addresses your skin cell strength.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling treatment, also known as collagen induction therapy, is the penetration of tiny thin needles into the skin at various depths from approximately 0.1mm to 1mm. This targets the hypodermis layer to cause an inflammatory response that triggers the natural production of collagen and elastin.
As the needles penetrate, they cause trauma to the skin. This stimulates the fibroblasts (the part of our immune system that binds the skin together) and triggers a natural healing response that boosts the collagen and elastin that are made naturally by the body.
To enhance the results of microneedling there are two types of treatments. The options are to either add mesotherapy serums or radiofrequency energy. You can have both but just not at the same time as the high level of focus energy from the Radio Frequency Microneedling will destroy the active ingredients in the Mesotherapy Serums hence there are two types of Microneedling skin treatments - but both are equally as wonderful, effective and long lasting when looking to improve ageing skin.
What are the benefits of microneedling?
Microneedling is the most effective non-evasive pro-ageing facial treatment you can have to improve your skin health. It's a long-lasting pro-aging skin treatment and especially good for issues like lack of tone, loose skin, and improving firmness. I've also seen fantastic results on large open pores, pigmentation, and historical scars.
It can be used on all skin types and unlike microdermabrasion and skin peels, you can have micro-needling at any time of the year without any risks.

Yes, microneedling treatments at home or in the clinic should only be performed 2 to 4 weeks apart.

A feeling of redness for 24 to 36 hours.
Your skin may feel warm and tight for one to three days. During this period, use delicate cleansing milk and recovery creams.
The best advice is to avoid swimming, strenuous exercise and excessive sun exposure during this 36 hours window.
Initially, your skin will feel dry after a few days, but as your skin cell turnover removes your current skin and relieves the new skin influenced by the microneedling you will begin to feel softer, firmer-looking skin.
No, not really, it can feel uncomfortable during the treatment. Some aestheticians will apply numbing cream to help reduce the sensation.
The pain from microneedling is often more on the forehead and thinner skin, you will feel an overall pain but it is not like having a needle put into your arm. The cartridge of needles is moving (oscillating) so fast that you can hardly feel the individual needles.
Depending on the location and practitioner, professional microneedling by a dermatologist or aesthetician can cost anywhere between £150 to upward of £295+ per treatment, with a series of three to six treatments often required to see results, the number of which can vary based on skin issue and condition.
