Medical microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) is a natural & effective way of stimulating collagen production.
Microneedling works by creating pinpoint punctures in the dermis of the skin (called micro-channels) to trigger the body’s own wound healing response and generate new collagen and elastin. It is particularly effective at treating fine lines & wrinkles, acne scars and stretch marks as well as improving skin texture.
A topical anaesthetic is used to numb the skin initially and the treatment usually takes 15-30 minutes. Immediately afterwards, it is normal to look slightly sunburned. Your skin may also feel warm and tighter than usual. This will start to subside after 1-2 hours. It is important to note that every person is different, so redness will vary depending on your skin type.
A course of 3-6 treatments are recommended and optimal results will be seen approximately 6 weeks post treatment.
