Medical Microneedling at Kings Skin Clinic Orpington

If you want to improve your appearance with non-surgical cosmetic treatment and you have fine lines, wrinkles or scars, then consider a technique called medical microneedling.
It’s a popular cosmetic treatment that suits any skin and It’s suitable for the treatment of your face, , arms, thighs and tummy.

Your practitioner will use an instrument that looks like a thick pen, which contains a number of fine needles. The needles will penetrate your skin and create tiny holes. Your skin treats the holes like a wound and reacts by producing elastin fibres and collagen.
Coupled with improved blood flow, your skin will begin to plump up and fine lines and scars will appear fainter. You’ll notice a difference within days, and as the weeks go by your skin will continue to improve giving you firmer rejuvenated skin.

Before the procedure an anaesthetic cream will be rubbed into the area which is being treated. This has the effect of numbing your skin and reducing any discomfort. Medical microneedling will take less than an hour to complete. Afterwards your skin may be red with some slight swelling, but this should disappear within 24 hours.

The procedure is very safe, but you should always check to make sure you are suitable for treatment. Here at Kings Skin Clinic we will be happy to talk to you and answer any questions you might have.
