Treatment and procedure
Medical needling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that works to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, stretch marks and open pores anywhere on the face and body.
This procedure works by stimulating the body’s own collagen and elastin production to improve skin laxity and appearance.
After we have applied a topical anesthetic to numb the area we use a pen shaped medical device containing 12 or 36 very fine sterile needles that are moved all over the surface of the skin area to be treated, creating microscopic channels for the hyaluronic acid to penetrate encouraging new healthier skin cells, collagen and elastin to form in the skin this is caused by controlled trauma we force the skin to repair itself, leaving the skin plumper brighter and with a firmer more youthful appearance.
It can take approximately 4 -6 weeks before viable signs of skin regeneration can be seen.A single treatment can produce noticeable results however we recommend a course of 3-5 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart for optimum results.
