Micro-Needling is a safe and effective, all-natural treatment for the face and body; it can be used to treat a wide variety of skin conditions including:
- Acne scars
- Enlarged pores
- Hair loss
- Photo damage
- Stretch marks
- Surgical scars
- Wound scars
Micro-Needling is carefully performed by producing micro-perforations into the dermis using a pre-sterilized, single use, disposable cartridge; this causes the skin's natural healing process to be activated forming collagen and elastin. The skin undergoes a dramatic improvement in the weeks and months following a treatment.
Treatments are usually performed every eight weeks until the desired results are reached, noticeable improvement can be achieved after even one treatment. There are very few side effects associated with Micro-Needling; the healing period is usually two to five (2 - 5) days.
The benefits of Micro-Needling include:
- Reduced risk of hyperpigmentation and scarring;
it can be used safely on dark skin.
- Suitable for thin and sensitive skin.
- Procedure is well tolerated and can be safely repeated.
- Can be used on all areas of the face and body, without a line of demarcation, this eliminates the need to blend the treatment edges.
The number of procedures required depends on the particular condition being treated. To book a complimentary consultation contact Carmella Hammond.
