What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is an aesthetic skin treatment where we use either a dermal roller or pen device with small needles attached to cause small micro-injuries to the skin to help with a range of concerns.
Depending on the depth of needles we choose, we can treat skin for collagen stimulation, acne scarring, pigmentation, pore reduction, skin laxity and stretch marks.
Medical micro needling causes trauma to the deeper levels of the skin, especially when treating deep scarring. For these procedures, we use a topical numbing cream to make this a comfortable experience.
Microneedling can be effective alone or as part of other treatments such as a bespoke facial. We can include a skin booster that can enhance your results.
Why use Microneedling?
Micro needling stimulates natural collagen production to revitalise your skin.
The perfect alternative to injectable treatments.
