What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that encourages the skin to produce more collagen.
Sterile needles puncture your skin’s surface down as far as the dermis creating “mini trauma’s” which in turn stimulate the healing process in your skin to naturally occur.
In order to do this your collagen production will automatically kick start causing your skin to become plumper, firmer and smoother.
Why get this treatment?
As we grow older our collagen production slows down so microneedling is a great way to get it motivated again.
This treatment along with helping lines and wrinkles is also amazing for helping diminish large pores, scarring, loose skin and pigmentation.
Is microneedling sore?
Everyones pain threshold is different but I would say it is not sore at all, maybe a little uncomfortable for some in certain areas if the face.
How long until I can see the results?
Results can be seen straight away with best results after day 3 generally but as this treatment reaches as deep as the dermis results can show for up to a year!!
How many treatments should I get?
It is recommended to do this treatment in a course of 3.
Is there any downtime after the treatment?
Again this depends on the client but generally speaking you will more than likely experience some redness immediately after the treatment and this may continue for up to 24-48 hrs. Your skin may feel tight and dry and in some cases a little flaky.
In a few cases there may be some low grade swelling but I have yet to see this. It is perfectly normal after this type of treatment.
Is there any specific aftercare?
- No excessive exercise that will cause you to sweat or “add heat” to the face.
- No sauna’s or steam rooms.
- No make up for at least 24hrs
- No retinol products for 48hrs.
- No exfoliating products for 5 days.
- Gentle cleanser and moisturiser with SPF to be used for 2-3 days after treatment.
As well as the above personally I would recommend the following.. as the microneedling needles penetrates the skin, it is extremely important to keep your skin very clean after your treatment.
Some suggestions would be no touching of the face.
Clean your phone throughly if you make phone calls.
Change your pillow case.
Give your glasses a good clean too especially the area that sits on your nose.
How do I book?
A recommended course of 3 is €400 or €150 for 1 treatment.
