Micro-Needling / Pure Roller
30 - 60 min
Micro-needling, also known as “collagen induction therapy” (CIT), is a minimally invasive, non surgical procedure for skin rejuvenation.
It involves the use of a micro-needling device, to create controlled micro-injuries which, in turn, stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process. The micro-injuries trigger the release of cytokines and growth factors that lead to remodelling of collagen and elastin, and also increases product penetration by 85%.
This is a fantastic treatment if you would like to address any of the following skin concerns:
Skin texture - Large pores - Acne scarring - Lines and wrinkles - Loss of volume - Dull skin - Stretch marks
You will see a plumping effect almost immediately, however the natural healing process takes time, so it can take up to 6 weeks before you see significant results.
The best results from micro-needling are seen after a course of 6 treatments spaced 2 - 4 weeks apart.
Prior to treatment - avoid excessive sun exposure or application of fake tan. Refrain from using retinol, glycolic or salycylic acid products, as well as waxing the area, for 1 – 2 weeks.
Is it suitable for me?
This is a fantastic treatment suitable for all skin types.
This treatment is not suitable if you are pregnant, currently taking medication which makes your skin photosensitive, or if you have uncontrolled diabetes.
Appropriate skincare will be recommended on the day of your treatment to help accelerate the healing process, protect the skin from the environment and enhance your desired results.
