Phase I: Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to cleanse the wound, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.

Phase II: The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.

Phase III: The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels; remodelling and resurfacing the skin.

Light is then applied post treatment to help calm and heal post-treatment.

SKINPEN Precision Microneedling FAQs

Skinpen micro-needling is our Collagen Induction therapy treatment using SkinPen Precision which is a medical-grade micro-needling device that uses fine, disposable, sterile Japanese steel needles. It’s the only FDA approved micro-needling device in the skincare market.

 

SkinPen has demonstrated a safe and highly effective method for achieving the maximum needle penetration depth consistently. Its validated needle geometry ensures a uniform structure without any jagged or hooked needles, mitigating the risk of skin scratching or tracking due to the active retraction rate of the needles.

Micro-needling involves controlled micro-injuries in the skin. The sterile needles of the microneedling device create precise micro-channels in the skin’s surface. These micro-injuries trigger the skin’s natural wound-healing response, promoting cell turnover, collagen production, and overall skin rejuvenation.

 

The treatment area is cleansed thoroughly, and a topical numbing agent may be applied to minimise any discomfort during the procedure.

 

The Skinpen device is gently moved over the skin’s surface in a controlled and systematic manner by our fully trained microneedling specialists. As the sterile needles penetrate the skin, they create micro-channels or micro-injuries in the dermis, the deeper layer of the skin.

 

Micro-needling with SkinPen Precision is a minimally invasive procedure with no need for topical anaesthetic. It typically requires little to no downtime, clients typically experience redness which usually subsides within a day or two. The skin can become photosensitive in the period following a microneedling treatment so clients and patients are advised to follow a specific post-treatment skincare regimen, including avoiding direct sun exposure and using appropriate skincare products including a broad spectrum sunscreen to support the healing process.

 

Collagen and elastin, essential proteins that provide structure and elasticity to the skin, start to regenerate and multiply in response to the micro-injuries. This process gradually helps to improve the skin’s texture, firmness, and overall appearance. Over time, as collagen and elastin continue to rebuild, patients notice improvements in skin texture, reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and overall skin rejuvenation.

 

Collagen and elastin are critical proteins found in the skin that play fundamental roles in maintaining its structure, elasticity, firmness, and overall health.

The importance of Collagen and elastin to skin health is fundamental, they contribute to a youthful complexion by ensuring the skin remains taut and plump. As we age, the natural production of these proteins decreases, leading to sagging, wrinkles, and fine lines.

Collagen is essential for wound healing, helping to close wounds and minimising skin imperfections. It plays a crucial role in tissue repair and regeneration.

Collagen also helps the skin retain moisture, contributing to its hydration and overall health. Well-hydrated skin appears more youthful and vibrant.

The structural matrix created by collagen and elastin acts as a protective barrier for the skin, guarding against environmental stressors, pollutants, and other harmful elements.

Healthy, youthful-looking skin enhances an individual’s confidence and self-esteem. Collagen and elastin play a significant role in achieving and maintaining this desired appearance.

The micro-channels created during micro-needling allow for improved absorption of topical skincare products. This is why, after the procedure, specific serums or other skincare products may be applied to maximise their benefits and aid in the healing process. Your skin specialist will recommend the most suitable product for you post procedure.

The frequency of microneedling sessions can vary depending on various factors, including your skin’s response, and your skincare goals. Our recommendation is to have treatments spaced approximately 4 to 6 weeks apart. This allows enough time for the skin to heal through the body’s natural healing process and for collagen and elastin production to occur before the next session.

The frequency of microneedling can be tailored to your specific skin concerns. For more severe issues like deep acne scars or wrinkles, you may initially have sessions more frequently, gradually spacing them out as you see improvements

We may recommend combining microneedling with other treatments like chemical peels or pulse triggered cold laser therapy. In such cases, the frequency may be adjusted based on the combined treatments.

After achieving the desired results, maintenance sessions can be scheduled every few months to help sustain the benefits of the initial treatments.

Microneedling is a procedure that uses very tiny needles (think acupuncture needles) to create controlled micro-wounds or puncture lesions on the skin to stimulate the skin’s own collagen and elastin production. Pain is subjective, but generally speaking, there is minimal to mild discomfort associated with microneedling treatments. Many people use a numbing cream before treatment to reduce discomfort. Users describe the procedure as feeling a gentle prickling or tingling sensation.
