Micro-needling treatment in London - the ideal solution for acne scars and more
|Micro-Needling 1 treatment||£140.00|
Picture your face with a glorious, lit-from-within glow. Know that there is no downtime at all. You might choose a micro-needling treatment in London to resurface your skin, for speed or effectiveness. Whether your skin has texture to it due to large pores, acne scars, or fine lines, the micro-needling treatment is perfect for you. The combination of product penetration and the wound healing process gets rid of bacteria and stimulates the skin's regeneration process for a fresh start. But on top of that, one of the many beneficial aftereffects of the treatment is that it allows your skin to absorb your topical products (such as hyaluronic acid and vitamin C) more deeply. So that your regular skin care treatment feels all the more nourishing.
So what is micro-needling and why are so many people turning to it as an alternative to other treatments?
Benefit from an almost pain-free treatment. Before your micro-needling treatment goes ahead, your face will be gently numbed using a special gel. This gel is allowed to work for up to 30 minutes before your treatment begins. This gives it plenty of time to work. The effect of the gel is to reduce the feel of the treatment to a very mild discomfort indeed.
Enjoy zero downtime. The slight redness that most people experience after treatment is the only kind of downtime you need to factor in. The redness usually lasts for less than one hour, with a day being usual only if you have very sensitive skin. After a day, you can even resume your usual skincare regime.
Get revitalised afterwards. Once your treatment is finished, a post-micro-needling facial will help you to feel fresh and vital. You will be soothed and your skin will be hydrated, leaving you free to go on about your day.
What you need to know - micro-needling before and after in London
Take a look at some images of the patients of micro-needling before and after treatment. The effect you see has been created using either a dermapen or dermaroller. These devices have either single or multiple tiny needles which are used to puncture the very outermost layer of skin. This creates micro-channels through which specially-designed serums can be administered. As well as this, simply by being present, these channels promote collagen growth and elastin production. They do this by encouraging your skin to heal in the same way as it would after a very mild injury, the net effect of which is to plump your skin, making it look healthier.
As most micro-needling before and after photographs will show you, the treatment is an effective solution if you are suffering from:
- Dull skin
- Dark circles
- Atrophic facial scars (most beauticians recommend micro-needling for acne scars, chicken pox scars and the like)
- Stretch marks
- Wrinkles and fine lines
The results of the treatment are cumulative. So, while you will certainly notice a difference after a single treatment, you will want to consider an entire course of treatment to continually encourage your skin's healthy production of elastin and collagen. For most wrinkles or stretch marks on the body, you may need 4 to 8 microneedling treatments to achieve optimal skin-tightening results.

A 1997 study on micro-needling results found that 80-90% of people rated the treatment as "excellent" when it came to its effectiveness at treating atrophic facial scars. You can find the study in the US National Library of Medicine.
