OR SKIN NEEDLING
This technique uses micro needles which are painlessly rolled over the skin, thereby allowing collagen inducing natural serum to enter the skin, which in turn causes the skin to produce new collagen.
Skin Needling treats: Anti-ageing (wrinkles, folds, creases, sagging), scar tissue, stretch marks, cellulite, hair loss, hyper pigmentation (age spots), rosacea and dormant acne.
After cleansing the skin, a serum is applied to it. The derma roller with its fine needles are rolled over the skin thereby creating micro pores.
Although this sounds painful, micro needling is usually a painless procedure. The micro pores allow the serum to enter into deeper layers of the skin. There may be slight tenderness after the treatment and skin may appear red. A hydrating serum is applied to the skin to relieve any tighness or dry feeling.
Some dry skin may be experienced as this is the dead cells that are being shed. After 4 weeks, the effect of the treatment will be seen, but immediately you should feel tightening of the skin. It takes new collagen up to 4 weeks to form. There may be some bruising or swelling - feel free to contact me if there are any concerns. In extremely rare cases, small pustules may appear; also contact me as soon as possible so that these pustules can be drained.
Aftercare: Shower as normal, making sure that it is not too hot. Do not take a bath. Do not use any products on the skin, except the serum that is provided, for at least 8 hours. If any unexpected adverse reactions occur, please contact me as soon as possible.
