Are there any side effects?

Most people will experience mild redness and possibly some swelling. The same way you may feel with a mild sunburn. These effects may last for 24-48 hours and there may be pinpoint bleeding and/or bruising. Within several days to several weeks you will notice a smoother, brighter, and more radiant appearance, however, the full effects of the treatment do not appear until several months later. The inflammatory reaction of the skin is extremely short and fades significantly within hours from redness to pinkish. In order to reduce visible redness, we recommend hyaluronic acid after the procedure, and to protect the skin with zinc based SPF. The use of topical makeup may be used after procedure.

What happens when I come for my treatment?

If you decide to book your treatment; we will book you in for a time to suit you. On the day; there will be a health questionnaire to fill in; as well as a detailed consent form. These forms will be discussed with you before any treatment is undertaken. You will also have the opportunity to ask more questions on the day. We don’t like to rush you in and rush you out. All appointments are 1:1. No queues, no overlaps. Depending on your skin goals, we develop an individualised treatment plan which will detail any specific recommendations from us to help you achieve your optimal result. This is bespoke to your budget. The procedure is simple. The device glides gently along the skin, penetrating the layers of the skin closest to the surface, of a depth of up to 2mm to create numerous tiny needle wounds. The therapy encourages the body to respond through creation new collagen and elastin fibers. As the skin responds, it plumps and thickens, reducing the appearance of scars, wrinkles and fine lines.

How long will the effects of this treatment last?

Micro-needling can be safely repeated every 4-6 weeks until you achieve your desired results. For collagen induction we recommend to start with 3 treatments, but with a minimum separation time of 4 to 6 weeks between treatments. For scar reduction an average of 3 to 6 treatments are recommended. The number of treatments required will depend on how each individual responds to the treatments, and the extent of the damage at the beginning. Micro-needling can be used on all skin parts of the body (neck, décolleté, arms, legs, etc). Most people will begin to see results after the very first appointment.

How much does this treatment cost?

Prices start at £225. Upon booking; you will be asked to provide a £50 deposit to confirm your appointment. Upon attendance, the £50 deposit fee will be deducted from your final total.
