Microneedling

Microneedling

Rejuvenating Treatment

One of the most effective ways to stimulate collagen production in the skin is with the use of microneedling. We use Dermapen 4™ for this treatment, which delivers the ultimate in advanced microneedling and can create an astounding 1,920 puncture channels per second, up to 104% faster than other microneedling devices. Superfine microchannels are created to stimulate the production of elastin and collagen naturally, and needle in topical actives. All functionality, like speed and depth, can be controlled with the touch of a button for reliable results.

Microneedling Treatment at Urban Sanctuary

A consent form will be provided on arrival to the treatment and any medical conditions and medications will be discussed.   

Preparation: Clients must avoid the use of Retinol or Vitamin A products 7 days prior to treatment.

This treatment is done in conjunction with the skincare products that we use in the clinic. (ASAP, SkinCeuticals, Environ) The area is double cleansed and serum is applied before the treatment commences. The therapist will start by penetrating the skin at a low level and will increase the depth depending on client’s tolerance for it and based on the severity of the skin concern being treated. After the procedure a cooling mask is applied to the area followed by SPF.

Clients will see a noticeable difference in their skin even after one session but for optimum results we recommend a course of 3 to 6 treatments spaced two weeks apart.

Aftercare: Client is advised to relax at home for the rest of the day and avoid any heat treatments for 24 to 48 hours such as gym, hot showers and any other strenuous activities. Makeup and perfumed products should be avoided for 24 to 48 hours also. SPF should be worn at all times.

The procedure works by using very fine needles to make tiny punctures on the epidermis and dermis layer of the skin.  This trauma to the skin ignites the skin’s natural healing processes and in turn leads to the increased production of collagen and elastin.  New capillaries are also formed in the healing process leading to greater oxygen and nutrient absorption for a brighter complexion.

Yes, the treatment is perfectly safe.  We use the Dermapen 4™ with advanced speed and technology which means the needles spend less time in the skin resulting in even less chance of bruising or micro-tears.

Clients will experience some degree of discomfort during the treatment i.e. scratchiness, itchiness, irritation, stinging and heating.  It is also normal after treatment for the area to appear red with slight swelling for up to 48 hours, some clients also experience some peeling after 24 to 48 hours but it is important to remember reactions vary for everyone.  

Skin will appear fresher and brighter after one treatment but optimum results are visible after 3 months.

Clients will see a noticeable difference in their skin even after one session but for optimum results we recommend a course of 3 to 6 treatments spaced two weeks apart.
