Microneedling, also known as Skin Needling and Collagen Induction Therapy is a highly effective, non-surgical treatment. Treatment uses a micro-needling device to create microscopic ‘pin prick’ wounds in the skin’s matrix. Stimulating a wound and allowing the body’s natural growth healing which will stimulate reformation and deposition of fresh collagen production. As your skin repairs, the production of collagen and elastin is triggered to give an almost immediate plumping effect. The increase in collagen can also increase your skin’s volume and help the texture to look and feel much smoother. This is an ideal procedure to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, acne scarring, orange peel skin and stretch marks amongst other skin imperfections.
At SunburyX Our microneedling system of choice is the Dermapen™ Dermaceuticals & dpm8. The system combines a full skincare range of active ingredients designed specifically to work with microneedling treatments. The spring loaded microderm needle cartridge uses electrically charged automation to revolutionised skin needling procedures on the face and body. Unlike the derma roller’s larger perforation which pierces the skin at an angle, the DPM8 leaves a vertical, pinhole wound, protecting against tearing meaning there is less downtime for the client making it a popular treatment for people on the go.
Microneedling is a gentle treatment suitable for:
- Improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Age management
- Pigmentation and Hyperpigmentation
- Sun Damage
- Rosacea and Collagen Loss
- Acne scarring and stretch marks
- Skin rejuvenation and Skin glow treatments
- Anyone seeking improvements in skin tone and texture
On average, a course of 3-6 treatments is advisable to see lasting results, with treatments carried out once each month.
New clients are required to attend a friendly face-to-face consultation prior to treatment. This will enable our treatment specialist to take a full medical history to ensure suitability for treatment and maximise your safety.
Before your treatment, numbing cream is applied to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. Once numbing has fully set in, your practitioner will provide you with a deep facial cleanse, followed by a layer of Alumier’s famous enzymatic peel to gently resurface the skin and aid skin renewal before your Microneedling session commences.
During your treatment, droplets of hyaluronic acid serum are deposited onto the skin to minimise friction, ease gliding and maximise Microneedling results by infusing the skin with hydration.
