The SkinPen microneedling is highly effective in treating ageing skin and acne scarring in particular. This precision device causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process. The micro-injuries trigger the release of cytokines and growth factors that stimulates the skin to naturally generate and repair itself, and leads to the remodelling of collagen and elastin.
As microneedling stimulates natural responses in the skin, the results you’ll start to see are completely natural-looking.
Microneedling is effective on the face, and the neck, back and chest. As these areas are more prone to sun damage and because of less collagen and elastin in the area, this can result in dry and crepey skin, lines, wrinkles, sun spots and age spots. Microneedling is one of the most effective treatments to revitalise the skin and restore the damaged skin to good skin health.

There are three phases to the treatment and 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 re-built with new granulation cells, as well as a temporary (type III) collagen and elastin, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
Phase III: Remodelling. The wound has been replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels. The type III collagen in the newly formed tissue is replaced with stronger type I collagen, which can contract to create a tightening or “shrink wrap” effect on the skin.
Our Aesthetic Practitioner will suggest a course of Microneedling SkinPen treatments depending on the condition being treated, but we recommend at least 3-6 treatments, approximately 6 weeks apart.
