Your questions answered
How does microneedling work?
Medical skin needling, also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) and micro-needling is aimed at stimulating the body’s own collagen production to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, skin laxity and scarring such as that caused by acne or chicken pox. It has also been successfully applied to the indication of hair restoration in cases of alopecia.
The treatment is carried out using a number of fine, small needles which are applied to the skin. These needles are attached to a single-use, sterile roller that is moved over the surface of the skin to create many microscopic puncture wounds. This damage encourages the body to produce new collagen and elastin, which generates new skin cells to repair itself and so helps the skin become thicker, plumper and more youthful.
Skin Perfection order brand new sterile rollers for each procedure and discard after every use. We use only best titanium needles of the correct needle depth size - between 0.2 and 1.5mm, depending on the area being treated - to penetrate the skin's surface and create tiny pinpricks or micro channels to kick start your collagen and natural healing response, to produce and awaken new healthy skin.
The 4-step procedure
You will receive a crystal-free microdermabrasion beforehand, to remove any dead skin cells, congestion and unwanted build up on the skin. This enables the needling treatment to work more effectively.
A peptide, stem cell or cocktail of vitamins is then selected, according to your skin concern, which is delivered as the machine micro-needles the skin: the peptides are delivered through the little micro channels that instantly plump and rejuvenate the skin.
Directly after, we use LED light therapy connected to the same machine to address and calm the redness and inflammation (red light), breakouts and bacteria (blue light) if this is a concern, or to boost the collagen with the yellow light, which has fabulous anti-ageing benefits. As the machine does the work it is a much more controlled procedure, compared to the hand held rollers, and the downtime is minimal so you may be able to go straight back to work afterwards.
We also deliver the whole syringe of the peptide solution so is great for the skin's health, and the skin's radiance instantly.
Will it hurt?
Treatment can be carried out using a topical anaesthetic cream for the handheld devices but is not needed for the Dermafrac procedure. Most patients report little discomfort.
While most patients do not bleed during the procedure, a small minority of patients do - but at worst this is only pin-prick bleeding, which is not serious or a cause for worry and anyway, will be managed by your practitioner.
How long does it take?
The procedure lasts between 45 and 60 minutes, as the device is moved across the skin in six areas: the forehead, cheeks, nose, upper lip, chin, and neck.
Is there any downtime?
At Skin Perfection, we understand that you may not want to experience any downtime from your treatments. That is why we invested in the Dermafrac because it offers a fantastic, 4-step micro-needling procedure without the downtime.
How many treatments will I need?
To obtain maximum benefit from your skin needling treatment we recommend a course of treatments - of between 3 and 6 sessions - at 2-weekly intervals. Treatment for deeper scarring may require more sessions.
Your Skin Perfection practitioner will discuss your individual needs.
