Microneedling

Microneedling Treatment for Ipswich

Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that helps minimize the signs of aging, improve the appearance of acne scars and rejuvenate ageing skin.

 

 The SkinPen Precision system is the only Class II, FDA cleared microneedling device available on the market.

 

 An initial consultation will be required prior to your first treatment to identify your objectives and suitability for the treatment. A course of treatments is recommended to achieve more effective and significant results at monthly intervals to allow healing to take place and to minimize any adverse affects.

 

The SkinPen microneedling device causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate the body's natural healing process. Micro-injuries stimulate the release of cytokines and growth factors that lead to remodelling of collagen and elastin.

What Should I Expect?

Microneedling can be performed using SkinPen, a medical grade, state-of-the-art microneedling tool available only through medical professionals. The treatment typically takes about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size and number of areas treated and the degree of treatment requested by the client. 

 

A topical anaesthetic is applied prior to the SkinPen procedure. This allows for a comfortable experience for most people. Generally, patients report feeling just a slight vibration of the SkinPen during the procedure. For most people, the procedure is less painful than having your eyebrows waxed.

What Are The Benefits of Microneedling?

- Microneedling helps reduce the signs of aging, improve the appearance of acne scars and rejuvenate aging skin. In one study of 60 patients with acne scarring, three microneedling treatments resulted in 31% improvement in skin texture, with no discolouration of the skin.

 

- Is appropriate for all skin types including darker skins that are more susceptible to hyperpigmentation. 

 

  • Can be used on many body parts. The SkinPen needle depth adjusts from 0.25mm to 2mm, allowing the provider to tailor the treatment to the patient's skin thickness as well as his or her needs. 

  • Has minimal risk of infections or scarring. SkinPen doesn't remove or damage the epidermis and doesn't trigger the inflammatory pathway, meaning infections and scarring are unlikely.

  • Works in conjunction with Skinfuse. Skinfuse is an easy-to-use skin care regimen specifically formulated to provide the nutrients your skin needs to optimize the results of the SkinPen procedure. Skinfuse doesn't contain ingredients that will hinder the skin rejuvenation process but contains nutrients that supports the skin after microneedling.

Downtime?

There will be redness following microneedling with your skin feeling slightly dry and tight. Healing varies between individuals and may take from 2 days to longer depending on many variables such as UV exposure, poor skincare, hormonal changes, stress, medications and illness. A 2 day homecare kit is given to you to care for the skin post procedure.
