What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a process that involves using needles to puncture hundreds of tiny holes in the skin. These tiny pinpricks act like a bunch of mini-injuries that kick skin into healing mode and stimulate collagen and elastin production. This process plumps skin and improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and pores. I know this seems like just one more discomfort we have to endure for beauty the consensus is that is pretty painless. Don’t worry, the regular method of Microneedling doesn’t involve bleeding or deep surface damage.

What are the benefits of microneedling?

Dull skin: Rejuvenate tired and dull skin and combat the initial signs of aging

Wrinkles: Fine lines and wrinkles on the face can be visibly reduced

Scarring: Scars from acne can be improved uneven texture can be smoothed out. You can read more about acne scars here.

Stage 1: Skin preparation

 

I clean the skin thoroughly using a concentrated skin-specific glycolic cleanser. This cleansing procedure removes makeup, dirt, sweat and sanitize, and prepares the skin. Then, I apply ampoule which includes active ingredients such as long-chain hyaluronic acid which acts as a remarkable moisturizer. This benefits all skin because each application guarantees more freshness and smooth skin.  

Stage 2: The Needling

 

I gently use a Microneedling pen to work around areas of the face. This requires bespoke adjustment on the machine depending on the skin thickness and condition.

Don’t worry the head of this is disposable to ensure safe and bacterial-free treatment for each client.

Stage 3: Finishing and Aftercare

 

Finishing with a collagen mask and cooling globe.

The whole process takes only around 20-30 minutes.

And after the treatment?

You can expect some redness for up to a day afterward as a result of all the skin stimulation, but it subsides quickly as the healing begins and the results of more glowing, supple skin start to show.
