Revitalises & Stimulates

the skin to regenerate

Microneedling is a non-surgical method of skin revitalisation, while stimulating its natural regenerative abilities. The unique technology used during the treatment provides concentrated nutrients bypassing the epidermal barrier. Micro-punctures made with sterile, disposable needles create several thousands of microchannels. They remain open for a short period of time, thus allowing for a deep introduction of the selected product. The perforation of the epidermis is strictly controlled – both its frequency and the depth of penetration are regulated depending on the clients comfort. There are minimal micro-injuries resulting from the treatment and it stimulates skin receptors for intensive repair processes.

Microneedling, also known as Dermapen, is recommended for people with skin that requires hydration and nourishment, with signs of ageing, sun damage, acne, discolouration or shallow scars. In addition, it has a positive effect on areas of skin affected by cellulite and works well in the case of losing firmness around the face, neck and neckline. It is also an excellent prophylactic, one-time treatment to improve the overall condition of the skin.

In a short time (about 20 minutes), the skin absorbs up to 90% of the cosmetic product. After the treatment, you can quickly return to daily duties and effects are visible after the first treatment.

The frequency and number of treatments are adjusted to the needs of the client’s skin. The best results are obtained after a series of 3-6 treatments, performed at intervals of 3-4 weeks. Then we recommend repeating this treatment every six months. At the age of about 18-30, a prophylactic one-time care treatment can be performed.

With a course of 3-6 mesotherapy treatments, patients can expect results to last 12 to 18 months after the recommended course of treatment is completed. So, for optimal results, we recommend patients continue treatments in order to maintain their desired appearance.
This of course depends on the condition of the skin, because some issues can be eliminated permanently with microneedling treatments.

Frequently
Asked
Questions

The short answer is yes, as a lot of clients call microneedling a “Dermapen” treatment, but the main difference is that Microneedling is a treatment performed with a device that allows you to perform thousands of fully controlled micro-punctures per minute and Dermapen is simply a microneedling device, well known in the beauty industry. Although microneedling treatments could be performed using a variety of different devices, every clinic or studio has its own preferred professional tool for this treatment.
Microneedling uses ultra-fine medical-grade needles to trigger increased collagen production and the skin’s natural healing process. The result is improved skin texture, tone and generally healthier, brighter and plumper skin. It is an effective method to reduce skin scarring from acne and sun damage.
Chemical peels and microneedling are both great treatments for those looking to improve the texture and tone of their skin. While chemical peels generally work best on superficial imperfections, skin needling has the ability to permanently reduce scarring, sun damage and signs of ageing.
With a course of 3-6 mesotherapy treatments, patients can expect results to last 12 to 18 months after the recommended course of treatments is completed. So for optimal results, we recommend patients continue treatments in order to maintain their desired appearance. This of course depends on the condition of the skin because some issues can be eliminated permanently with microneedling treatments.
Unlike the dermal roller, with a microneedling device we can set the penetration depth of the needles from 0.2 – 2.5mm which puts us in control of the results we want to achieve. We can also treat different areas at different depths to really tailor the treatment to your skin. Microneedling devices, like a Dermapen for example, can also reach more areas than the Derma Roller and being motorised leaves you with a more even treatment. Better results are also achieved due to the needles going up and down, leaving neater and more consistent micro tears. The dermal roller rolls over the skin leaving larger uneven trenches which can lead to larger pores.

You might think that having a bunch of tiny needles puncturing your skin would be painful, but surprisingly it is not. Before treatment you’ll have a topical anaesthetic applied, which will eliminate any discomfort during the process. Everyone who has experienced treatment with a microneedling device like a Dermapen has given feedback on how pain free it really is, and some have even commented that it’s a little like a rather rough massage.
