Microneedling is a safe, minimally invasive treatment which improves skin texture, reduces fine lines, and helps treat acne scarring Microneedling encourages the body to create natural collagen and elastin to boost skin texture and treat a variety of skin conditions. Microneedling involves puncturing the skin with tiny needles either with an electronic pen or a dermaroller, which activates the skin's natural healing defence. This refreshes and renews skin.
Fine lines and wrinkles – reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by improving skin quality
Acne or other scarring – the appearance of scars is improved by encouraging the body to naturally renew the surface of the skin
Pigmentation due to sun exposure or liver spots – fade dark patches and even out skin tone
Dull, uneven skin – rejuvenate and plump tired skin with an instant boost of elastin and collagen
During the initial consultation, Emma will assess your skin for suitability for microneedling and will discuss potential outcomes.
The treatment itself involves covering the skin with a solution which includes a variety of powerful vitamins and minerals to boost the benefits of the treatment.
Microneedling treatment is then either carried out with a microneedling pen, which allows targeted treatments to small areas, or using a derma roller which is useful for treating larger areas.
Both treatments make tiny puncture wounds in the skin, triggering the body's natural healing process.
When carried out by a qualified practitioner like Emma, microneedling is a very safe treatment.
Improved skin texture, increased plumpness, and reduced scarring. Emma will recommend a course of treatments to maximise the benefits and increase the duration of the results.
Microneedling will leave the skin red, but healing can take as little as 24 hours. However, you can return to work immediately after treatment if required.
Microneedling is commonly carried out on the face but can be done anywhere on the body which would benefit from improved collagen and elastin.
Most people are suitable for microneedling, particularly those who suffer from fine lines and wrinkles or acne scarring. Microneedling is also suitable for treating dark skin which can be prone to pigmentation.
