Micro-needling treatment

Micro-needling is a fantastic alternative to wrinkle injections, filler, glycolic or TCA skin peels and micro-dermabrasion. It stimulates the production of new collagen, tightens and rejuvenates the skin and evens out skin tone.

It’s an exceptional treatment for acne and noticeably reduces and improves acne scarring.

What are the benefits of micro-needling?

Micro-needling is the most effective non-surgical pro-ageing procedure you can have to improve your skin health.

It’s a long-lasting anti-ageing treatment and especially good for issues like lack of tone, loose skin, and improving firmness. I’ve also seen fantastic results on acne and acne scarring, even when the scars have been historical.

It can be used on all skin types and unlike micro-dermabrasion and skin peels, you can have micro-needling at any time of the year.

How does micro-needling work?

Micro-needling is the penetration of tiny thin needles into the skin at approx 0.8mm to 1mm depth. This targets the hypodermis layer to cause an inflammatory response which triggers the natural production of collagen and elastin.  

Products such as hyaluronic acid and active nutrient-dense serums [NCTF135HA Serum} can be penetrated deep into the dermal layer of the skin to influence your skin health for the following month. 

As the needles penetrate, they cause trauma to the skin. This stimulates the fibroblasts (the part of our immune system that binds the skin together) and triggers a natural healing response that boosts the collagen and elastin that’s made naturally by the body.

The serums then encourage the production of good quality collagen and elastin and the treatment leads to smoother, younger-looking, rejuvenated skin

Does micro-needling hurt?

The technique and depth of the needles reduces discomfort during treatment, but you may see some redness for up to 24 hours afterwards. Your skin may also feel dry for several days, but after two weeks, it will feel wonderful!

SPF 50+ must be applied every day to maintain good quality skin health.

Does micro-needling hurt?

The speed and size of the needles reduce discomfort during treatment. Both the depth and the speed can be customised to make sure you’re comfortable throughout.

How does micro-needling compare to laser treatments?

Laser treatments use heat, micro-needling doesn’t. Micro-needling is non-thermal and non-surgical so it can be performed on all skin types with reduced risk of post-inflammatory pigmentation or formation of fibrotic scar tissue.

How long does micro-needling take?

The actual skin micro-needling only takes around 20 minutes, but the full treatment takes between 45 and 60 minutes. I’ll cleanse the skin and apply some soothing serums first, then micro-needle. Afterwards, I’ll apply a mask, cleanse again and finish with some more gentle serums and creams.

What can I expect after micro-needling?

Expect your face to be red and a little bit sore for up to 36 hours afterwards. It may also feel dry and tight for several days, a little like you have sunburn. These are natural responses to the trauma caused during the treatment.

Hyaluronic acid is ‘hyperlipic’ – this means it attracts water and pulls it down so after 14 days your skin will feel wonderfully soft and hydrated.

Will I see results from micro-needling immediately?

Yes, the results are instant. You’ll both see and feel a firmness and a lifting and tightening immediately after your first micro-needling treatment. Your skin will feel plumped and smoother.

Can I use my normal face creams afterwards?

Yes, you can apply serums and moisturisers as normal. Hydrating serums are especially good – I can advise on a hyaluronic acid post-treatment which will ease the tightness.

Can I exercise after micro-needling?

It’s best to wait 24 hours before exercising. The technique increases blood flow to the surface of the skin and exercise can cause it to sting. It won’t affect the results, but it might be uncomfortable.

Can I wear make-up after micro-needling?

You can, although I recommend you wait 24 hours before applying a full face of evening make-up.

How many micro-needling sessions will I need?

One treatment will give you results. A skin health treatment protocol will give you lasting, visible results. Each treatment should be four weeks apart and spread over a 12 week period. After that, a treatment every 6-8 weeks will maintain the results and give you firmer, smoother skin.

How often can I have micro-needling?

Deep micro-needling should only be performed 4 to 6 weeks apart. 

You must allow at least two weeks post-treatment to allow your skin to heal before having any other skin procedure.

Ideally, your first treatments should be skin rejuvenation only [within 0.6mm] in skin, then micro-needling can be introduced four weeks apart over a 12 week period and then every 6-8 weeks after that.

For aged, lack of toned skin oddly you need more time between treatments. So those who need micro-needling the most actually must have it the least for the optimum result! That's skin you.. 

Is micro-needling good for acne scarring?

Micro-needling is fantastic for reducing and improving acne scars, even if they’re old scars.

The advantage of deeper needling compared to skin rejuvenation is the deep collagen and fibroblast production to repair the scar,

Can I combine micro-needling with other treatments?

Yes, you can safely combine it with a skin perfusion facial or HIFU Plump+ and a natural facelift for lifting and skin tightening.

Do you treat people of all ages?

You must be 18 or over to come to me for micro-needling.

I’m diabetic. Can I have micro-needling?

Yes. I go through a full medical history with all clients before micro-needling to assess any medical conditions and medications you might be taking. If you’re diabetic, we’ll discuss the type of diabetes and how you manage it.
