What is micro needling?

Micro needling (also known as collagen induction therapy) induces collagen production and actually strengthens the epidermis.
It involves using a digital wand that contains very fine needles.
When passed over the skin, the needles create micro “injuries” in the skin to trigger new collagen synthesis. Each micro “injury” creates a channel that triggers the body to produce new collagen and elastin to fill the microscopic wounds.

Amazing results from Micro needling

When combined with consistent use of corrective antioxidant serums and moisturisers this procedure aids in brightening your skin that results in a youthful glow.
You can’t get that from home treatments.

FAQ’S about microneedling

Is Micro needling painful?

The great thing about Micro needling is no anaesthetic is needed unless you go a certain needle depth.

I have tried and tested the treatment and it feels more like vibration on the skin. This is dependent on the needle depth chosen and you may experience a slight discomfort in certain areas, but again not enough for the anaesthetic to be applied to the skin.

Are there any side-effects to Micro needling?

A thorough consultation is given to ensure clients do not have any contraindications to treatments, such as certain medications, diseases or disorders

Side effects are minimal but can include mild shedding, looking slightly sunburned and in some very rare cases light bruising, but these usually fade within 24-48 hours, if not a few hours.

The area should not be exposed to the sun, tanning bed, heat, hot water or sauna for 5-7 days. It is extremely important to protect your skin with at least SPF 30 at all times. Mineral make-up can be worn to hide any redness.

How long does a micro needling session take?

Usually with a thorough consultation, cleansing the skin and micro-needling treatment (which is approximately 20 minutes depending on size of area I’m working on)and aftercare given, the total treatment time takes about 45 minutes for the face and neck, but depending on other areas of the body treatment time may vary.  During the treatment, you may experience some mild discomfort however it is tolerable and kept to a minimum, with comfort levels checked throughout the treatment.

You will also be given a home care plan , a serum to use for a few days after and can arrange your next treatment.

Also, if you opt for the maximum performance or the ultimate performance the treatment time will be longer as they are added on treatments such as cooling epi nouvelle mask and LED light therapy.

How many sessions will I need?

Micro-needling can be safely repeated every 4-6 weeks until you achieve the desired results. For collagen induction, I recommend to start with 3 treatments, but with a minimum separation time of 4 to 6 weeks between treatments. For scar reduction an average of 3 to 8 treatments are recommended.

However a consultation will help determine the correct amount customised to your skin cosmetic products, but an idea is below:

Skin rejuvenation – 4-6 treatments are required at an interval of 4-6 weeks apart

  • Skin refresh 1-2 treatments at an interval of 4-6 weeks apart
  • Acne scars – 6 treatments are required at an interval of 6 weeks apart
  • Pigmentation – 4-6 treatments given monthly
  • Stretch marks – up to 10 treatments are recurred at an interval of 4-6 weeks apart

Treatment areas –

  • Face
  • Neck &decollete
  • Body – fantastic for stretch marks on stomach and legs or acne scarring
  • Scalp

Micro needling fact or fiction?

These are the main questions I get asked about skin needling…..

Do deeper needles equal better results?

Clinical studies have shown that the same amount of collagen is produced in the skin whether you use a 0.5mm or 1.5mm dermal roller.
In fact, a 0.5mm roller has been shown to produce better results in a shorter time, compared to using a 2mm roller. This is probably due to the less trauma and shorter inflammatory phase involved with using a smaller needle size. Consequently, it also means less pain, discomfort and downtime.

Does Microneedling create scar tissue?

Incorrect wound healing management creates scar tissue.
Using excessively deep needles or carrying out treatment too frequently, can promote scar collagen. However using the right needle size and providing the skin with the correct nutrients post-treatment, collagen induction therapy promotes scarless wound healing, preserving the epidermis and resulting in stronger and healthier skin.
