What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a procedure designed to enhance and improve the complexion. It activates the body’s natural regenerative process to stimulate skins own collagen synthesis. Very tiny needles are used to penetrate the top layer of the skin vertically. These micropunctures cause localised and controlled damage without effecting the epidermis. This initializes the skin regeneration and as a result skin rejuvenation and renewal.
How does Microneedling work?
Microneedling is an extremely safe and reliable procedure. Precise punctures with a professional microneedling device such as Genosys Dermafix Pen accelerate the healing process as well as the bodys natural growth factors, the body produces collagen and elastin to smooth over irregularities resulting in renewed, plumper looking skin.
What is Microneedling used for?
Microneedling can be used to treat acne scarring, minimise the appearance of wrinkles areas of pigmentation, visible pores and improve the texture of the skin.
When will I see the results of my Microneedling treatment?
Please be aware the effects of microneedling are not visible immediately after the treatment as the body needs time to produce collagen, however you will see an improvement from two weeks and continue over the following months up to a year. A course of three skin needling treatments are recommended for optimum skin health four to six weeks apart. You may be recommended to use a home treatment programme in order to maximise results.
Is Microneedling painful?
Before your treatment a topical anesthetic cream is applied to minimise discomfort this takes approx. 25mins. The microneedling process can take up to 20 minutes. There is very little downtime, although expect your skin to look and feel like a mild sunburn for 24hours after the procedure. During the following day or two you may experience some mild shedding as the dead skin cells slough off. This is normal and you can wear makeup the following day after your treatment.
What is the cost?
A single treatment is €150
A course of three is €395
