Skin Needling

Skin Needling Facial: £65.00

Microneedle therapy (also referred to as Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT)  is one the newest, easiest and most effective skin treatments available and is a process which can be carried out clinically. Skin Needling or Micro-Needling is a form of Collagen Induction Therapy which is intended to significantly improve the appearance of acne scars, aged and sun damaged skin, facial and décolleté lines, wrinkles and stretch marks. It is also said to be useful in dramatically increasing absorption of topically applied skin preparations.

After the procedure the client's skin may be red and flushed in appearance in a similar way to moderate sunburn. The client will also experience skin tightness and mild sensitivity to touch on the area being treated. This will diminish greatly after a few hours following treatments and within the next 24 hours the skin will be completely healed. After 3 days there is barely any evidence that the procedure has taken place.

Our skin benefits from a number of sessions but you will start to see results after one.
