Topical anaesthetic is not necessary for this
The automated pen device, stimulates the
growth of collagen fibres by creating superficial
breaks in the skin. These tiny channels created by
the pen device increases the absorption of products
into the skin by 80%.
Topical anaesthetic is recommended for this treatment. This can be used for the face where
the scarring is very deep and is more suitable for larger areas such as the upper and lower body
A dermaroller is a cylindrical drum shaped device which is symmetrically covered with microneedles.
The device creates superficial breaks in the skin as it is rolled on to the skin surface. This
stimulates the growth of collagen fibres beneath the skin in the dermal layer.
How it works…
Microneedling works by introducing tiny punctures into the skin, this increases blood flow to the area which promotes the production of neo collagen ( new collagen) . Collagen is the protein which gives the skin its strength and elasticity. With age the production of collagen is dramatically reduced resulting in wrinkles and loss of elasticity, the classic visible signs of ageing. Microneedling is also widely used to treat acne and acne
scarring. It works by stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin which help reduce the appearance of scarring.
“The reduction of acne has been life changing. Before I wanted to hide away
and I hated my skin. Now I can actually relax, smile and be confident.”
