How is it carried out?
Topical anaesthetic is used to numb the skin for a period of approximately 20-30 minutes, after which time an advanced micro-medical skin needling device is used to stimulate the skin in order to enact the skin’s own regeneration and repair processes.
Procedure takes 30-45 minutes per session.
When can I start to notice the results?
Micro-needling makes use of the body’s own repair system therefore the following are approximate time scale for skin changes and improvement.
|Time Scale||Skin Changes & Improvement|
|Day 1 to 2 (normally 24 hrs)||Redness and mild swelling subsides|
|Day 2 to 7||Increased exfoliation & dryness|
|1 Week onwards||Improvement in texture and tone begins|
|3 Weeks onwards||Improvement in pigmentation begins|
|6 Weeks onwards||Improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, scarring begins|
How many treatments will I need?
We usually recommend at least 3 sessions before optimum results are seen.
Natural regeneration can take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of rejuvenation and repair can be seen. The process of regeneration can continue over a period of months.
