A DermaPen with small needles is passed along the skin creating small channels in the skin. This process of microneedling stimulates the skin to regenerate and rejuvenate - plumping, brightening and tightening. It is also excellent at treating acne scars, stretch-marks and fine lines.
Products used: DermaPen with needle depth adjustable from 0.25 to 2.5mm.
A mesotherapy solution is applied during treatment. It contains vital vitamins, anti-oxidants, amino acids and hyaluronic acid that are absorbed through the channels created by the needles.
Excellent for: dull, tired skin, fine lines wrinkles, acne scars, stretch-marks.
Procedure Time: 30 minutes
Pain relief: none needed or topical
Down-time: The skin will be bright pink post treatment. This is due to an increase in blood flow to the skin - so it looks flushed. This usually settles within 24 hours. In delicate areas around the eyes, it is possible for there to be some small bruises. The skin may feel dry and flakey 2-3 days post treatment due to shedding of dead skin.
Aftercare: It is vital that you protect the skin with factor 30+ sunblock post treatment. You will be given a post-procedure cream to use morning and night to optimise your recovery and results.
