What is a Microneedling ?

Microneedling pen use tiny sterile needles to create microchannels onto the surface of the skin which allows suitable skin rejuvenation products to penetrate into the skin further while also stimulating the production of collagen.

The Dermafix microneedling pen can create over half a million microchannels during a 5-10 minute treatment. This treatment penetrates deep through the epidermis to the dermis where collagen is then recreated to reduce sagging of the skin, which cause wrinkles.

This encourages the absorption of active ingredients, making it far easier for them to pass through the upper layer to cells and deeper into the skin (compared to a simple surface application with no needling).

Who is Microneedling suitable for ?

Microneedling is safe to treat all skin types and colours as we no damage is caused on the outer layers of skin. Inflammatory or change in skin pigmentation is extremely minimal.

Microneedling is not recommended if you have:

* Open cuts, wounds, abrasions
* Received radiation skin therapy
* Any skin infections or on-going conditions
* Herpes simplex
* Pregnant/Breastfeeding
* Problems with keloid scarring, hypertrophic scars or poor wound healing

What is expected after treatment ?

Redness to the area treated is usually expected after the treatment along and some possible pin prick bleeding in the area but a post treatment cream is applied to minimalise this effect.

Minimal make- up is recommended 24-48 hours post treatment and a high SPF is recommended daily to maintain results.

When can I expect to see results ?

Clients who have chose Microneedling for minor imperfections such as fine lines and wrinkles may notice results immediately after undergoing just one microneedling treatment. However, for more extensive imperfections like deep scars, acne scarring may require multiple treatments. A course is recommended to reduce the cost. With each subsequent treatment, you should notice more and more improvement. As an added bonus, this procedure boosts the production of elastin and collagen, so the appearance of your skin will steadily improve as it heals from the treatment.
