It’s actually not a new treatment it has been around for years and is becoming more and more popular as people want a more natural looking youthful glow. Dr Des has spent many a year perfecting the treatment and this is the procedure I follow to guarantee the best microneedling treatment with the best results.
So how does it work?
This treatment isn’t a ‘facial’ more an advanced treatment, so it needs to be performed by an experienced skin therapist/practioner. It is not the sort of quick fix treatment you have before a Saturday night out, but with a little dedication it will deliver long lasting results.
The whole process takes about 90 minutes, first of all we numb the skin and then we glide a roller over the skin which has microscopic needles, these tiny needles penetrate into the dermis and cause a micro trauma on the skin. This micro trauma causes tiny pin pricks of blood on the skin and once this has happened we know the collagen and elastin has been kick started.
This micro trauma tricks the skin into natural healing mode and floods the area with collagen and elastin, not any type of collagen and elastin this is type 1 collagen, the sacred words if you want a more youthful skin. After we’ve rolled, we clean the skin and put an alginate mask on to calm the redness, remove the mask and apply peptides and Vitamin A.
