What is Microneedling?
Micro-needling treatment encourages superlative collagen production. Our specialist device creates more micro punctures than any other faster and without pain.
If your skin is looking a little worse for wear, it will usually be caused by general ageing and effects of the sun, and that is what rejuvenating techniques like a micro-needling address.
Microneedling is an effective form of rejuvenation, improving scars, such as acne scars or stretch marks, dark spots and freckles caused by the sun, as well as skin laxity, wrinkles, and large pores.
The Dermapen is passed over the area to be treated, and inserts tiny needles into the skin, leaving minute puncture wounds. These tiny punctures trigger the body’s wound healing response and encourage the body to renew the skin cells in that area. While the body repairs the skin, it increases the production of collagen and elastin, immediately plumping the area, and causing a diminishment to wrinkles. As the body repairs the skin you will also see scarring, dark marks and sun damage decreasing.

If you are unhappy with your skin, be it from old acne scars, age or sun spots, or the general fading of youth from your face, non-surgical facial rejuvenation is ideal. With the Dermapen no surgery or recovery time is required and in just a few short treatments you will see remarkable results, not only will the increased elastin and collagen plump up your face, but old scars and marks will fade away too.
Microneedling is also effective for alopecia and general hair regeneration. The process works in much the same way; as the wound healing response takes place, it stimulates blood circulation and increases nutrients reaching the hair follicles, this combined with the stimulation of proteins in the area can result in new hair growth.
