Collagen Induction Dermapen Microneedle Bournemouth
Face skin microneedling or microneedling is a skin renewal technique to restore the healthy youthful appearance of your skin at a fraction of the cost of comparable treatments and with little, if any discomfort, downtime or risk to the client. Skin needling produces similar results to ‘ablative techniques’ such as Fraxel, lasers and deep chemical peels, but is much less invasive and does not require the removal of the skin surface.
As a result, healing time is shorter and there is no post-treatment sensitivity to UV light. This allows your skin to heal much faster plus minimises any risk of scarring and hyperpigmentation.
Skin needling is also one of the few skin therapies that are suitable for treating fragile skin around the eyes, mouth and on the neck.It helps to minimise issues such as ageing, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage and pigmentation, acne, acne scarring, poor skin texture. Microneedling is based on the principals of accupuncture and mesotherapy. We perform microneedling using a Derma Pen with very tiny needles. Transdermal absorption is significantly increased permitting vital nutrients to be absorbed into the deeper layers of the skin known as a form of mesotherapy. A numbing cream is not necessary with microneedling as there is minimal discomfort. Moreover the needles cause a micro injury that stimulates the body’s natural healing response thus inducing collagen production. Microneedling is a natural, safe and effective anti-aging solution and effective alternative to intense pulsed light, laser resurfacing and cosmetic injectables.
A course of six skin needling sessions, every 5 days is usually recommended to achieve optimum results; however you will notice improvement after just one treatment.We offer medical-grade skin care products which help prolong the results of the treatment. Although you will definitely see results after your first treatment, the effects of microneedling are cumulative and continuous as the skin rejuvenates naturally over several months.
Each person is very individual and depending on the area that is being treated, the inflammatory reaction (redness) of the skin ranges from 12-24 hours to a few days. In order to nourish the skin, we recommend hydrating the skin regularly and applying a natural sun protection. Please avoid AHA’s (Alpha Hydroxy Acids), retinol (vitamin A) or anything acidic or ‘active’ for at least 2 days. We recommend only using gentle all natural products after the treatment. A gentle cleanser, hyaluronic acid hydration, a skin oil and sun protection.
