How MicroNeedling Can Improve Your Skin
If you’re looking for a treatment to dramatically improve the tone and texture of your skin, with minimal downtime, then you’ll want to find out more about our all-new in clinic treatment, SkinPen. One of the newest practitioner-only treatments, SkinPen is a medical micro-needling device that stimulates the body’s natural wound healing response for collagen remodelling.
Read on to find out what exactly that means and why this treatment is an effective, relatively painless treatment that will repair, regenerate and tighten the skin.
What is SkinPen?
SkinPen is a medical micro-needling treatment that stimulates the body’s own inflammatory response, encouraging skin cell turnover. Basically, by creating tiny lesions in the skin, it kick-starts a natural healing process, which in turn stimulates collagen regeneration.
How does it work?
Using tiny needles, SkinPen creates micro-lesions that stimulate the skin to repair itself. The skin then fills these micro-channels with new collagen, which rejuvenates the skin from the inside out, tightens skin naturally and softens lines and wrinkles.
Who is it best for?
SkinPen is ideal for those wanting to dramatically improve the tone and texture of their skin - those with pigmentation, acne scarring, uneven skin tone or ageing skin will experience the best results. It is the only needling device recognised by the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods and is safer than other needling treatments, producing more dramatic results, with less downtime.
Does it hurt and how long does it take?
We apply a topical anaesthetic cream to numb the skin. With this cream, we would rate the pain at around 0.5/10, without it, around 2.5/10.
Unlike other micro-needling treatments, SkinPen does not promote bleeding. Redness is normal, indicating a good result and will subside quickly. The procedure takes 90 minutes in total.
