Microneedling skin treatments
Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment for the improvement of skin conditions. It is most commonly used to reduce wrinkles, acne scarring, rosacea, hyperpigmentation and stretch marks. We offer this treatment at our Worthing, Chichester and Burnham clinics.
How it can help
Due to the protective function of the skin as a barrier a majority of skincare products are unable to penetrate through the outer most layer of the skin (stratum corneum) approximately 99.7% of all skincare products are lost as there molecular size are too large to penetrate through the skin. Overall, only 0.3%of the applied nutritive elements can infiltrate into the skin. Therefore, to solve this problem and increase penetration, microneedle rollers are designed to create physical pathways through the skin to increase permeability
These tiny channels created by the pen device allows up to 80% delivery of active ingredients.
