Everything you need to know
Microneedling is the use of tiny needles to penetrate through the skin to induce a wound healing reaction. This results in hundreds of microchannels created in the skin which increases the delivery of the specialist product and stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin fibres. Stratum Clinics offers a number of different microneedling treatments, such as Dermaroller and SkinPen. If you would like to find out more about individual clinics, please get in touch.
WHAT DOES MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT DO?
Microneedling is mostly used on the face and may treat various scars, wrinkles, and large pores, but also could be used on the neck, décolleté, and scalp.
Increased production of natural fibres within the skin means the treatment works very well at treating scars such as post acne scarring, stretch marks as well as fine lines and wrinkles, and smoother, firmer, more toned skin.
A series of treatments is usually recommended 4-6 weeks apart, although 1-2 sessions works well as a general skin refreshment. It is suitable for all skin types. This treatment is led by our team of highly qualified dermatology specialist nurses and physician’s assistant with many years of cumulative experience in providing treatment to skin patients.
