What is micro-needling?
Micro-needling is an advanced non-surgical cosmetic procedure used to treat a wide variety of skin concerns…
- Fine lines
- Large pores
- Acne & Acne scarring
- Stretch marks
- Hair loss
- Skin pigmentation (dark spots)
- Sun damage
- Skin rejuvenation
How does micro-needling work?
The dermafix pen is passed over the area to be treated, inserting tiny sterile needles into the skin. This can feel uncomfortable but not usually painful. The tiny punctures inflicted from the needles create a wound healing response and renew the cells. As your skin repairs, the production of collagen and elastin is triggered to rejuvenate the skin.
- Rejuvenates tired and dull skin.
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles on the face.
- Improves acne scarring and stretch marks.
- Fades dark patches such as pigmentation, sun damage.
- Encourages hair growth where hair is thinning or receding.
How many treatments do I need?
1 treatment is enough for skin brightening and rejuvenation. When treating a skin condition such as scarring, fine lines, pigmentation etc, it is recommended to have a course of treatments between 4-6, these will be spaced out monthly.
What to expect on the day?
On the day of your treatment, you will have a face to face consultation with Tricia, you can discuss your face or body concerns and Tricia will use her expertise to decide what treatment programme will give you the best results.
Please allow 1 hour for your appointment, if possible please arrive for your appointment make-up free.
