ABOUT CLINICAL SKIN NEEDLING

Skin needling is an excellent treatment option for refining pores, reducing wrinkles, fine lines and scarring, stimulating collagen production, firming skin and reducing stretch marks. It has been shown to be particularly effective in the treatment of acne scarring, and is effective for improving skin tone and discolouration. Clients often see an improvement in their skin’s texture after just one treatment.

Rachel Lavelle uses the latest Dermapen 3MD™ micro-needling device – the world’s most advanced vertical skin needling technology. Clients experience more effective, minimally invasive, and more affordable treatment options to tighten, lift and rejuvenate the surface of the skin.

TREATMENT

At the beginning of the treatment, your skin is cleansed, assessed, and a topical anaesthetic (numbing cream) is applied for 30-60 minutes. During this time you are free to relax (most clients relax and sleep whilst numbing). After this time your skin is cleansed again, then a potent hydrating serum (containing hyaluronic acid and vitamins) is applied, which is transfused deep into the skin during treatment.

Afterwards, your skin is cleansed with a sterile solution and a soothing antioxidant cream is applied. It contains Resveratrol and Procyanidin inside of squalene droplets which naturally absorb into the deeper layers of the skin, releasing powerful ingredients which stimulate the repair process of your skin.

AFTER CARE

After your Dermapen skin needling treatment, you can expect to experience some redness for the first couple of days. By day three you should notice any redness/pinkness starting to fade, or clear up altogether.

For at least 12 hours following your treatment, it is recommended that you do not apply any makeup to your skin, and refrain from using makeup brushes on your face, as this can agitate the skin.

Rachel Lavelle can recommend some gentle cleansers, retinol treatments, and topical serums to boost the effects of your Dermapen skin needling treatment.

FAQS
Q: How many treatments are recommended for rejuvenation, acne scarring and stretch marks? (General guide)

A: Rejuvenation: 4-6 treatments, 2-6 weeks apart
Acne scarring: 6 treatments, 2-4 weeks apart
Stretch marks: 4-8 treatments, 2-6 weeks apart

Q: Should I prepare my skin before having a Dermapen™ Treatment?

A: For optimal results, a period of effective active treatment creams, such as Vitamin A, C or Resveratrol is recommended to allow the skin’s strength to build-up (especially for thin or delicate skin areas). Our Senior Dermal Therapist will recommend the pre and post procedure protocol.

Q. Can the Dermapen be carried out on darker skin types?

A. Skin needling can be safely performed on all skin colours and types. There is no risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation as the melanocytes remain intact, like the epidermis, during skin needling.

Other invasive procedures such as laser resurfacing are not recommended for darker skin types due to the potential risks of delayed wound healing, pigmentary changes and scarring. This is where skin needling has an advantage as these potential risks are very unlikely due to the epidermis remaining intact.

Q: How long should it take before I see results?

A: Typically, you will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will occur after 4 to 6 treatments (spaced 3-6 weeks apart). Your skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months after a course of treatments and when combined with the recommended post treatment care.

Q: Is the treatment painful?

A: For minimum needle depths Dermapen™ Treatments are painless. Treatments over 0.5mm deep, may require a topical anaesthetic cream to be applied for 30-60 minutes before the procedure. This will render the treatments pain free.
