Industry leading microneeding treatment, is a skin repair treatment that can help to significantly improve the appearance of ageing or scarred skin. It uses tiny needles attached to a pen device to gently puncture the skin causing a series of traumatic punctures on the skin.
The result of this is that the skin responds to this by naturally producing collagen and elastin to repair itself. The production of collagen and elastin work to smooth and firm the skin, plumping out deep lines and improving the indented or red appearance of scars and stretch marks.
Micro needling is an effective treatment for the following concerns;
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scarring
- Facial scarring
- Enlarged pores
As well as the face, it is also suitable for the following concerns on the body;
- Sagging skin
- Stretch marks
How does it work?
Microneedling technique to create small, gentle punctures in the skin - the majority of which are simply pushing your pores open temporarily. Your skin reacts to any injury by initiating the healing process, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin.
What does the treatment involve?

By carefully causing these tiny punctures to your skin, we trigger a healing process that rejuvenates the skin, encourages collagen production, and reduces the appearance of lines, wrinkles and imperfections.
A cocktail of serums is then chosen to further enhance the results of your treatment, depending on what your skincare needs are.
