Medical Microneedling- SkinPen Precision
What is Medical Microneedling?
As we age, we lose collagen in the skin and the structure of the skin deteriorates leading to fine lines, wrinkles, large pores and uneven skin texture. SkinPen creates thousands of controlled micro-channels in the skin to trigger the body's natural wound-healing process. This process stimulates the formation and remodelling of collagen which supports the underlying tissue.
The result is more youthful. smoother and tighter-looking skin.
What can be treated?
Wrinkles, some pigmentation and acne scars may be softened. SkinPen can be used to treat the face, neck, decolletage and the backs of the hands.
What does the procedure involve?
Medical microneedling using SkinPen is safe for all skin types. A numbing cream is applied for your comfort and the procedure takes around 45 minutes. Although you will gain benefit after a single treatment, a course of 3 to 6 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart is recommended for optimal results.
Is there any downtime?
After treatment your skin will feel hot and appear red for at least 24 hours and you may experience some skin peeling over the first few days but this will subside to leave you with more youthful glowing skin. You should keep the skin clean and avoid make-up for at least 24 hours after treatments. Allow 48 hours for recovery. Do not use retinol skincare products for a week before your treatment and for a week after too.
How long do the results last?
Results will be seen within a few days but your skin will continue to improve over the following few months as the collagen is stimulated.
