Advanced medical micro skin-needling is a procedure that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin.
What conditions does this treat?
- Acne Scars
- Ageing & sun damaged skin
- Facial and décolleté lines and wrinkles
- Stretch marks
- Uneven Skin tone
How does Microneedling work?
Micro needling is carried out with a roller that is covered with numerous tiny needles. The aim of this treatment is to create a controlled injury underneath the skin’s surface, thereby inducing the body to respond by producing more collagen in the treated area. These needles penetrate the upper layers of skin to a depth of up to 2mm. The skin plumps and thickens in response to the stimulus, reducing the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and fine lines.
Can it be used on different areas?
The most common treatment areas is for the face & neck area, but any area of concern can be assessed by our nurse.
What happens before the Treatment?
At ASI Skin we apply a topical anaesthetic cream to the area being treated before each treatment to reduce any discomfort. It will normally take up to 30 minutes for the topical anaesthetic to work and 20 – 30 minutes for the actual procedure.
What happens during the Treatment
Our nurse will carry out the agreed treatment. Genosys Roller creates channels deep into the skin, allowing penetration of active ingredients in skincare pro
What happens after the Treatment
After the procedure your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, working below the surface in the dermis. This takes time as new collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced. It can take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair are seen and the process will continue over the following months, providing you with a natural and long lasting enhancement. Recovery may take 24 hours or up to a few days; most people should however be able to return to work the following day.
How many treatments will I need?
A single treatment can produce noticeable results, however a course of 4-6 treatments spaced 2–3 months apart is often recommended to achieve optimum results, in conjunction with a home skincare regime.
