SkinPen® precision is the only globally FDA approved, state-of-the-art microneedling device which is clinically proven with visible results seen after one treatment. It causes controlled micro-injuries in the dermis that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. It initiates the release of natural growth factors to improve collagen formation and cellular tissue. The result is effective remodelling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact. initiates the release of natural growth factors to improve collagen formation and cellular tissue
There are three phases to the wound-repair process:
Phase I: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.
Phase II: Proliferation. The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
Phase III: Remodelling. The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.
For optimal results, we recommend 3-6 treatments with 4-6 week intervals. For severe scarring, up to 6 treatments may be required. Immediately following the treatment you may look like you have minor sun burn, and your skin may be warm and tighter than usual, this will begin to go down after 24 hours and will have completely gone down after 48 hours.
Medical Microneedling is the perfect complementary pre-treatment to all of the other procedures on offer at our clinic, priming the skin to generate the very best results.
