The benefits micro needling
Micro needling therapy is a simple method that treats wrinkles both quickly and safely.
There is no risk of laser burn and the epidermis remains intact, making it safe to repeat the procedure numerous times. Micro needling is also a good option as it allows us to treat areas of skin that are not suited to traditional deep peel and laser treatments – such as around the eyes, hands and chest.
Micro needle therapy is also very cost-effective and the recovery time required following the procedure itself is very minimal. Treatments can be tailored to individual circumstances too, going deeper in areas where the skin damage requires rigorous care.
How many treatments are required?
Multiple treatments will be necessary – the number of needling sessions depends on the skin condition. Three or four treatments are recommended for mild to moderate acne scarring, whereas deeper scars and stretch marks may warrant in excess of five treatments.
How often should treatments take place?
We recommend a minimum interval of 4 to 6 weeks between micro needle sessions. Treatment intervals of 6 to 12 months are common throughout the industry as standard practice.
How much does micro needling cost?
One session (including hyaluronic serum, hyaluronic acid skin rejuvenation) - £99
Course of three sessions - £250
What is micro needling?
Micro needling therapy, also called collagen induction therapy (CIT), and percutaneous collagen induction (PCI), is a skin rejuvenation procedure carried out using a device containing a set of fine needles. Anaesthetic cream is applied to keep the patient comfortable while needles puncture the skin to create a controlled skin injury. The body works to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin – this leads to an overall improvement in skin texture and firmness, as well as the reduction of scars, stretch marks and pore size.
