Microneedling is a treatment that improves the texture of the skin by stimulating collagen production. This reduces the appearance of fine lines, crepiness, enlarged pores, acne scars and melasma.
These results are achieved by causing a controlled injury to the skin using the SkinPen Microneedling device, which triggers the skin’s healing response. This increased collagen production makes the skin look smoother, more refined and brighter. In combination with medical grade skincare, it also helps to lighten Melasma by breaking up the pigment in the dermis and epidermis.
To enhance the results of microneedling even further and to speed healing afterwards, PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), Growth Factors or Hyaluronic Acid can be added to the treatment. The most common areas to have treated are the face and neck, however, areas of the body can be treated as well.
The area(s) to be treated will be prepared by applying a topical numbing cream to ensure there is little to no discomfort felt during the treatment. The vibration of the SkinPen will be felt during the treatment and may even tickle the nose slightly! A small amount of blood may appear on the surface of the skin but will be cleansed off before the treatment is complete.
The skin will be red and slightly swollen immediately after your session and will resolve itself within 48 hours. Approximately 2 days after the treatment, you will experience shedding or peeling, this typically lasts for 2-4 days.
