Microneedling (SkinPen Precision)

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a skin rejuvenating procedure. It involves using a device to create punctures in the top layer of the skin.  This results in minor trauma, which stimulates the skin cells to heal the skin and boost collagen and elastin to reveal glowing and rejuvenated skin.  

Why SkinPen Precision?

SkinPen Precision is a leading skin remodelling device that creates temporary small microscopic channels in your skin.
This simple procedure activates your body's natural skin-healing power to increase collagen and elastin so your skin returns to a healthier looking and youthful appearance. 

SkinPen Precision is the only microneedling device that is classed as a medical device in the UK and USA.  It is licenced to improve tthe appearnce of facial acne scars, improve fine lines and wrinkles as well as treating melasma, vitiligo and sun spots (or age spots).

What happens during treatment?

Following a full consultation, topical anaesthetic cream is applied to assure maximum comfort during the treatment.
The SkinPen device is used to create thousands of controlled microchannels in the skin to elicit your body's natural wound healing cascade.  This healing process works at the site of treatment to remodel the tissue resulting in new collagen and elastin to give your skin a younger, firmer and radiant appearance.
