Microneedling explained

What is Microneedling and what are the benefits to my skin?

No matter which method of “Microneedling” (rollering or electric pen) is used, the concept is the same – microscopic needles are moved over the skin at a chosen depth creating tiny punctures in the skin to stimulate the skins own healing response.


So whether you have had Derma Rollering on your full face or a more localised area (smokers ​​lines) using a cartridge of clustered needles, then the skin’s response to it is the same.


As the needles penetrate the skin they produce tiny microscopic traumas.


As the skin reacts, tiny electrical signals are released and cause a chain of events…..or a wound healing response. Essential enzymes,proteins and cell regenerated tissues are discharged, stimulating a regenerative process.


This treatment stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself safely and naturally, creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin.


 Your skin is absorbing topical serums/creams thousands of times more than it normally does (more so DURING the treatment) so please follow the aftercare advice carefully.


During microneedling your skin screams out "wholly shit I'm getting attacked!!!" And goes into overdrive to heal itself by producing extra collagen and elastin.


Then your skin soon screams out "wholly shit I'm in my 20/30's again....i can't remember the last time I had this much collagen and elastin having a big party in my face!!!"

When your skin starts repairing itself at an abnormal rate, it gets smoother, firmer and plumps up!


The magic doesn't stop there.....for a little window of time those little micro tunnels in your skin that have been temporarily created serve a purpose too..... I apply a little cocktail of Hyaluronic, Vitamin C....(and depending on your skin concerns)...... other little amazing potent ingredients to bring your skin into super stardom


I'm not going to lie to you - you will leave looking like you have been to the Caribbean for a fortnight and forgot your spf!

BUT if you leave looking the same colour as you came in then I've not done my job and you have just spent the worst money of your life, this inflammation is what is doing all the work.... just let it do its thing!
