What is Microneedling?
Taking advantage of the skin’s ability to heal itself, microneedling causes micro-injuries to the epidermis which kick-starts your skin into repair-mode, triggering the production of collagen and elastin. More collagen and elastin, means smoother, more refined, and firmer skin. The self-repairing property of the skin is a 100% natural form of skin renewal from the inside out.
In my treatment room I use the award winning Candela Exceed™ medical microneedling device. Coming out of Germany, with its well-known German engineering, Exceed is recognised as one of the most powerful devices on the market and is the world’s ONLY double FDA-cleared medical microneedling device, clinically proven to dramatically reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and acne scars. Each treatment session delivers powerful results with minimal downtime. A course of 3 to 6 treatments is recommended for optimum results.

What To Expect After Microneedling
There is very little down time following a microneedling treatment, but this varies with each client. Expect your skin to look and feel red for about 24 hours after the treatment, like a mild sunburn. It may also start to flake after a day or two as the skin cells slough off. This is a normal reaction and do not exfoliate as this will only irritate the skin. You may also experience some skin tightness, dryness, and mild sensitivity to touch on the areas that have been treated. Makeup can be worn after 24 hours; mineral makeup is recommended and if you use makeup brushes to apply, please ensure that these have been washed thoroughly before using on treated skin. Post treatment you must use a high factor sunscreen to protect your skin and any topical products specifically recommended during your consultation. After about a week you’ll see the new, brighter, smooth skin. In order to maintain and build upon the positive results of your treatment, repeat treatments are strongly advised.
