HOW DOES IT WORK?
Micro-needling works by using a unique system of tiny needles which stimulate collagen and elastin, thereby filling in fine lines and deeper wrinkles, as well as addressing uneven skin tones and acne scarring.
These small contact points encourage the body to create a wound healing response as well as tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin. As your skin repairs, the production of collagen and elastin is triggered to give an almost immediate plumping and firming effect. It can also tackle other skin damage problems such as scarring, dark marks, sun damage and ageing.
WHAT TREATMENT DO I NEED?
Collagen Enhance 45mins
Recommended for clients that have fine lines and wrinkles.
Collagen Intense 1hr
Recommended for clients with deeper wrinkles, uneven skin tones and acne scarring.
Numbing agent is used prior to the treatment to ensure comfort as the needles used will be deeper. This is why the treatment time is longer.
Downtime is minimal but expect your skin to be red for 12-48 hours post treatment
Up to 48 hours post-treatment we recommend that no make-up or other products are used on the skin until it has returned to its normal state and there after you can start applying your recommended SPF moisturiser and normal products.
3-5 days post-treatment clients may notice that the skin starts to shed, this is due to the increased turnover of new skin cells so we advise to use a gentle and light exfoliator to remove this. 5-7 days post treatment you will be able to see beautiful, new, radiant skin.
For 7-10 days please ensure that you are not exposing your skin to the sun. It’s imperative that you are using and advanced moisturiser with a high SPF as your skin will be more sensitive post-treatment in these few days. We stock results orientated moisturiser suited for all skin types which we advise you to use.
HOW LONG BEFORE I SEE RESULTS?
Typically, you should see results after the first treatment. However lasting and more significant results will become visible after 4 to 6 treatments (spaced 4-6 weeks apart).
The condition of your skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months after a course of treatments, especially when combined with the recommended post-treatment care.
