Dermal Needling is a form of digital collagen induction using fine needles to perforate the skin and encourage natural collagen deposition. The needles sit within a cartridge in a pen like device, which is filled with a serum specific to your skin type that is delivered into the skin at the time of the treatment.
The increase in trauma that it causes leads to increased results as it stimulates the body’s natural healing functions more. The needles penetrate into the skin through the epidermis and deposit the serums deeper down into the dermal-epidermal junction, leading to longer lasting results. A mild Salicylic Peel is performed prior to the needling to prep the skin.
Dermal Needling is suitable for clients with skin issues such as acne scars, fine lines and deeper set lines and wrinkles. The beauty of Dermal Needling is that it targets the problem areas more directly by penetrating the skin. Redness can usually last for 24 hours.
No the needles are targeted and are less invasive than other skin needling techniques. Expect to feel mild discomfort.
Sunscreen is very important after dermal needling, your usual skincare regime is recommended however you may require a more intensive moisturiser for a few days.
Dermal needling is less invasive, the contoured needle head means I can be more specific in your treatments and work in more delicate areas, such under the eyes.
It is best to leave 21 days before having any dermal needling treatment to avoid the possible migration of the botox or filler.
Downtime is minimal after Dermal Needling but you will look red immediately after - this will subside within 24 hours. The skin starts healing immediately and some mild peeling may occur.
