Microneedling is an electronically powered device whereby multiple needles vertically pierce the skin to enhance rejuvenation results, maintain epidermal integrity & reduce downtime. The automatic vibrating function of the micro needling pen increases dermal needling speed, effectiveness & absorption of products, while reducing pain & discomfort.
It is as effective as Fraxel, IPL, Lasers and Chemical Peels at a fraction of the cost.
Also a lot more comfortable than the Dermaroller and easier and more effective treating fine lines under the eyes as well as plumping and treating upper lip lines.
Microneedling can significantly:
* Tighten, lift and rejuvenate skin.
* Reduce Acne scarring.
* Improve wrinkles and fine lines.
* Reduce the number of pores and reduce pore size.
* Reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks.
How does Microneedling help you look younger?
After a treatment your skin will go through a natural healing process creating new collagen and elastin fibres which in turn results in tighter, firmer skin and less wrinkles.
How many treatments are advisable and whats the recovery time?
Recovery time is usually only one to three days, rarely up to a week and although its been reported of noticeable results after the first treatment, it is recommended a course of three to five treatments to achieve the very best results, sometimes acne scarring may require more than three treatments depending on the severity,
Is it only used to help keep you looking younger?
Not at all, its successfully used and was originally designed to treat acne scarring, its also used successfully to treat stretch marks and scars.
Is it safe ?
As with any medical treatment there are risks, but with the Dermapen most of the skin remains intact and so risks are minimised and serious problems are extremely rare.
Is it painful?
A numbing cream is applied prior to the treatment making it more comfortable, this is a far more comfortable treatment than the derma roller and in my experience its advantages out weigh that of the roller.
