What Is It:
Microneedling (also known as skin needling or collagen induction therapy) is a type of treatment that uses small needles to cause tiny punctures in the skin. These small contact points encourage the body to naturally create a wound healing response and renew the skin cells to repair itself. Your skin reacts to any injury by initiating the healing process, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. As your skin repairs, the production of collagen and elastin triggered gives an almost immediate plumping effect. Microneedling, is different than a superficial Microdermabrasion treatment and provides much more benefit, because it reaches below the skin surface. According to a 2008 study, skin treated with four Microneedling sessions spaced one month apart, produced up to a 400% increase in collagen and elastin six months after completing treatment!
What To Expect During Treatment:
We’re thrilled to introduce the latest and game-changing skin needling device to RSB Aesthetics, the Dermapen 4th Generation, which is a revolutionising micro-needling device that tightens, lifts and rejuvenates skin with minimal downtime. Your skin reacts to any injury by initiating the healing process, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. You can expect minimal discomfort during the session but may, however, depending on each individual’s skin tolerance, experience temporary bruising/redness once the procedure is over. Sensitivity to the area being treated could last up to 10 days.*
What Areas Can Be Improved & Results:
Microneedling can help tackle skin damage such as fine lines, acne scarring, facial scarring, sagging skin, stretch marks, sun damage and ageing. It is a great treatment if you have darker skin because it doesn’t involve peels or lasers, which can cause pigmentation issues.
The Dermapen can be used to treat any part of the body and can even treat the delicate areas such as the neck, around the mouth, nose and the eye bags.
The Dermapen renews the skin and so address many facial skin-related complaints, including but not limited to:
In addition to facial concerns, the Dermapen is used to treat stretch marks and scars on the thighs and the abdominal area.
