This is a controlled treatment that inflicts small pin-prick wounds with a stainless steel needle into the lower layer/living layer of the skin. The purpose of the induction of the minor trauma is to trigger your natural healing cascade and collagen synthesis.

Contraindications do apply, so a thorough consult is required.

Downtime is approximately 2-5 days. You may experience dryness, redness and/or swelling.

Makeup can be worn after a 24-hour period.

The results are noticed within two weeks by some; however, what is described as a collagen gestation period (collagen being triggered and synthesised) can take up to six months.

For this reason alone it is advisable that you receive this treatment ahead of the goal date (eg a wedding date)

It is not a pre-requisite that the skin is pre-treated with homecare by many brands, but I personally recommend using active ingredients such as Vitamin A and C topically and an anti-inflammatory diet internally, which will optimise skin health pre-treatment to limit downtime and maximise results.

What skins would benefit?

Maintenance, 25+, lines , wrinkles, and acne scarring, to name but a few.
