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, fine lines, skin laxity, some pigmentation and acne scars may be softened and SkinPen is also great to revive dull tired skin. SkinPen can be used to treat the face, neck, décolletage 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.
How many treatments will I need?
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?
