Micro-needling is the science of creating tiny micro-channels into the skin, which stimulates the body to create new, healthy collagen and elastin. This results in an overall improvement of your skin’s health.
A series of 3-6 treatments is recommended.
What to expect during your Micro-Needling Treatment:
After your personal consultation with your Fresh Skin and Spa skin therapist, your skin is thoroughly cleansed and prepped for the treatment. Next, the Micro-Needling 'pen' is gently passed evenly across the skin in sections. The depth of the needles on the M-Pen can easily be adjusted for more sensitive areas of the face and around the eyes and mouth. We can infuse a blend of Mesoestetic ampoules which are targeted to suit your skins' needs such as de-pigmenting or anti-ageing and firming solution. A Medik8 Ultimate Recovery sheet mask is then applied to minimise any redness or discomfort. Aftercare products including sunscreen are applied to the treated areas and at home instructions are reviewed.
What to expect after your Micro-Needling Treatment:
After your treatment, your skin will be slightly pink and puffy for up to 24 hours. You may also experience a 'prickly' feeling and some tightness, or tenderness to the treated area the following day. Approximately 2-3 days after the treatment, you may have some light flaking or dry areas. You will start to see an improvement in your skin’s health as soon as one week after your treatment and your skins texture will continue to improve over the coming weeks and months.
The skin will feel like moderate sunburn and this generally lasts for a few hours.
