Frequently Asked Questions
What is microneedling?
A procedure the uses multiple small needles to generate a medically induced injury. The purpose of the treatment is to generate new collagen for a smoother, firmer, more toned skin. Dermapen is a safer more precise method of needling than a dermaroller. Needle penetration is perpendicular and depth of needle can be adjusted to treat different areas of the face.
Am I suitable for treatment?
Suitable for most skin types and ages to improve and maintain skin quality unless contraindicated.
How long until I see results?
Skin will appear plumper after treatment, however it takes many months for collagen to develop. This is a treatment for long term rather than immediate results.
Do I need to prepare?
It is advisable to plan treatment around your work and social calendar as skin can be a little red and can be marked if deeper needling is required in some areas.
How much does the treatment cost?
From £250 per session.
How long does it last?
Results are cumulative and regular treatments are recommended.
Are there any side effects?
