How Does Microneedling Work?

Using the only globally FDA approved microneedling device (SkinPen Precision) our microneedling treatments safely create micro injuries that stimulate the body’s natural wound healing response. This stimulates natural growth factors to increase collagen production and cellular tissue, rejuvenating the epidermis and improve the appearance, tone, texture of your skin. This treatment also effectively remodels scar tissue while maintaining the overall structure of your skin, and can be used on all areas of the face and body to treat a number of concerns.

There are three phases to the microneedling healing process:

The Inflammation Phase – The piercing of skin triggers a response in your immune system which disinfects the wounds, increases blood flow, and initiates new tissue formation.

Proliferation Phase – In this stage a new network of blood vessels develops in addition to wound rebuilding involving new granulation cells.

Remodelling Phase – The wound is replaced with new blood vessels and dermal tissues

Microneedling Treatment Process

Prior to Treatment:

Our aesthetic practitioners assess your skin to confirm your suitability, then thoroughly explain the procedure, risks and benefits. Topical anaesthetic is applied for 20-30 minutes prior the treatment for additional comfort.

During Microneedling Treatment:

The SkinPen is carefully glided across the area of concern using the Skinfuse LIFT HG (Allergy free from cytotoxic) to create hundreds of microscopic puncture wounds which stimulates the natural repair process and activates collagen and elastin production. Erythema should be visible with possible signs of blood spotting, this gives us indication that the depth is at its correct point in order to penetrate deep enough into the skin.

Post Microneedling Treatment:

You should avoid touching the area or applying any products onto the skin for 12 hours in order to prevent infection. Post treatment Skinfuse LIFT HG can be applied to help soothe the area. After 12 hours Skinfuse RESCUE Calming complex can be used to help support remodelling of the skin. The treatment area can be red and warm for 24 to 48 hours post treatment but most patients see a reduction in erythema after 24 hours of treatment. Specific post treatment instructions will be given to you by a Nurse or Doctor at the clinic.
