Treatments / Microneedling

What is Microneedling?

Skin pen microneedling is a popular cosmetic procedure in London that involves using a device with tiny needles to puncture the skin. This stimulates the body’s natural healing process and encourages collagen production, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. Microneedling is typically performed by a licensed aesthetician or dermatologist and can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to complete.

Are Skin Pen Microneedling results Permanent?

The results of microneedling are not permanent, but they can last for several months to a year depending on the individual. In order to maintain the results of microneedling, it’s recommended to undergo a series of treatments spaced out over several weeks or months. Additionally, it’s important to take good care of your skin after microneedling, including using sunscreen and avoiding harsh skincare products that can irritate the skin.

Which Microneedling device we stand by?

We choose to use the industry leading technology which is SkinPen.

SkinPen is FDA approved and clinical trial results have been outstanding and proven that this fast, painless process works from the inside out with skin staying rejuvenated for six months. Treatment must of course be carried out by a trained professional in a registered clinic.

SkinPen is especially effective on neck wrinkles and acne scars and there is no recovery period because there is actually nothing to recover from after such a non-invasive treatment. There are other micro-needling devices on the market but none are as well-designed, tested and effective as SkinPen.

How does SkinPen rejuvenate your skin?

SkinPen zooms through your skin making 1600 microscopic holes per second, quickly activating your body’s internal healing forces, creating collagen and elastin and renewing your skin. It’s literally like rewinding back to when your skin was clearer and healthier-looking. This type of micro-needling is completely safe for all types of skin and all different skin tones with no chemicals or heat involved whatsoever.

Your body’s skin protein production slows down with age, acne, stretch-marks and scarring, and can sometimes almost come to a halt. SkinPen re-starts this production by reminding your body how it’s done. It boosts collagen, and recreates dermal tissues and elastin in a way that definitely would not happen nearly as quickly if you just waited for your body to do this remodelling on its own.

Microneedling FAQs

In the first 24-48hrs your skin could appear red and slightly swollen due to the effect of the needle pricks on the treated area. Most patients report this subsiding soon after. From days 2-5 you could experience dry flaky skin or peeling as your body begins to renew its skin layers. This is a natural reaction and indicates the renewing of your skin. Once the healing process is completed you will see the glowing results revealed

Microneedling is generally considered safe when performed by a licensed and trained professional. However, as with any cosmetic procedure, there are some risks involved, such as infection, scarring, and hyperpigmentation. It’s important to choose a reputable provider and follow all post-treatment instructions to minimize the risk of complications.

Most people find microneedling to be a relatively painless procedure, thanks to the numbing cream that is applied beforehand. However, some areas of the face may be more sensitive than others, and you may feel some mild discomfort during the procedure. After the treatment, your skin may feel slightly tender, but this should subside within a few days.

The results of microneedling can last for several months, but the exact length of time can vary depending on factors such as the individual’s age, skin type, and the severity of the skin concerns being treated. Multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired results, and maintenance treatments may be recommended to help prolong the effects.
