What is Microneedling?

If you suffer from fine lines, acne scarring or pigmentation then you may benefit from microneedling treatment. We offer both manual and mechanical microneedling both causing pin point bleeding. This ‘trauma’ causes stimulation of your natural collagen which will refresh and rejuvenate the appearance of your skin. This natural treatment can be used all over the face, the décolletage and the hands.

The Microneedling Treatment

Prior to the treatment, topical anaesthetic cream will be applied all over your face to numb the skin. This will minimise the pain post treatment. The treatment itself will take about an hour to perform and you will leave the clinic looking slightly red. The redness is said to reduce by 50% every 4 hours so by the following day most of the redness will have gone. You must also make sure that you wear your SPF 50 every day to optimise the results of the treatment and protect your skin from any sun damage. Your SPF 50 suncream is included in the price of the treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

The procedure will usually take about an hour, including time for the anaesthetic cream to take effect.

It is a very safe procedure; however possible rare side effects include, skin irritation and infection however they are not common and can be treated.

After the procedure you will be looking quite red and may feel very tender, therefore it is important to moisturise as much as possible and take care of your skin when in the sun. You will be given SPF 50 sun cream and also something to decrease the redness of your skin. We also strongly recommend that you avoid wearing make up for the following 24 hours, and avoid strenuous activity following the procedure.

Before the treatment you will have anaesthetic cream applied all over your face, which should reduce the pain during and after the procedure; however you may still feel minor discomfort during the treatment.

It is recommended that when you are pregnant or breastfeeding you do not undertake this type of procedure. You also cannot have a microneedling if you have active acne. Your suitability for treatment will be determined when you speak to an advisor.

Here at Cosmetic Courses we use Epionce chemical peel systems.
