Microneedling

What is this and how can it help?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that creates thousands of epidermal microchannels allowing active ingredients to pass through the skin. This can be done using a roller containing needles or a pen. The skin roller is effective but is usually quite painful. We use a microneedling pen where the needles oscillate vertically thus avoiding the drag caused by a roller. The controlled trauma caused to the skin by microneedling stimulate the skin to repair itself thus increasing collagen and elastin production and in doing so this improves the quality of the skin. We add nutritional serums during the procedure which aim at reducing pigmentation, signs of ageing and help in tightening the skin.

What are the benefits of microneedling?

Microneedling along the nutritional serums can be used on face and body to provide the following benefits. A course of 3 sessions gives the best result.

1-2 days.

How long do the results from microneedling last?

Results take 4-6 weeks to appear and last around 6 months.

Microneedling vs. Peels

Microneedling is a great alternative to peels. It resurfaces the skin with minimal downtime and can be combined with nutritional serums or PRP for an even better result. Microneedling and superficial peels can be done alternately for enhanced skin resurfacing. Medium TCA peel provides a deeper exfoliation but has a downtime of 5-7 days.

"I love the results"

I went to a national chain clinic before and did not realise that the treatment was not done by a doctor. They actually wanted much more money when I said I wanted a doctor to carry out my treatment. At Luxe Skin, I am always seen by Doctor Q. He is so easy to contact at any time. No receptionists or secretaries, you speak to him directly. I had Botox and fillers and I love the results. My forehead is so smooth and the deep lines around my nose have faded away.
