Micro-needling in Bromley
Micro-needling or collagen induction therapy is a cosmetic treatment in which tiny punctures are created in the skin with an instrument called a derma roller or a derma pen. The punctures are made by many thin needles that are penetrated up to 2 millimetres in the skin.
Micro-needle is done to enhance the natural process of the body to improve overall healing. The process improves the production of new collagen and elastin fibres. These are the proteins that provide strength and elasticity to the skin. With increasing age, natural production decreases. Micro-needling creates an effect on the skin which increases the production of these proteins. It improves the overall look of the body and reduces the effect of wrinkles and scars.
The micro-needling facial treatments provide a high concentration of moisture, multi-peptides, and hyaluronic acid. This provides deep nourishment to the skin.
This treatment lasts for a longer time and is suitable for all types of skin. You can see visible results with the first treatment. If you want to improve your skin tone, improve dull skin, fine lines and wrinkles, we recommend 3 treatment sessions. But, if you are looking to treat stretch marks and acne scarring, then we recommend a 6 treatment session.
Treatment will include:
Micro-needling is generally used on the face. But it is also performed on the other areas of the body like the neck, chest, and hands. The number of treatments may vary depending on the skin problem that needs to be addressed.
After micro-needling treatment, the skin may be red and swollen for a few days. After the treatment, you need to avoid direct contact with the sun and avoid using harsh skincare products.
