Microneedling is a type of treatment that uses small needles to cause tiny punctures in the skin. These small contact points encourage the body to create a wound healing response and renew the skin cells. As your skin repairs, the production of collagen and elastin is triggered to give an almost immediate plumping effect. It can also help tackle other skin damage such as scarring, dark marks, sun damage and ageing.
Here at sk:n we perform several types of Microneedling treatment depending on your desired result:
Dermapen uses a unique electronic mechanism which allows your practitioner to control treatment intensity to tailor the treatment to your needs. A solution is also applied to the skin, containing hyaluronic acid, minerals, vitamins and peptides. These act by stimulating cell proliferation and so improving skin contours and elasticity.
The Dermapen has many advantages for medical professionals and their clientele. Individually sterilized, one-time use, micro-needle tips come equipped with patent-pending SURSPACE Technology.
HOW DOES IT FEEL? -
A numbing cream is applied to the area before carrying out our Dermapen treatments to ensure any pain is minimised. No topical anaesthetic is needed for Dermapen Revitalise as the treatment depth is short enough not to cause any discomfort.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS? -
up to six weeks before you see significant results
WHAT IS THE AFTERCARE? - After your treatment, your skin will appear red and flushed; a normal sign that the treatment is working and will subside within a few days.
