Rejuvenate Skin and Hair with Microneedling

What is Microneedling? Discover how a SkinPen treatment can help you

Microneedling is often referred to as collagen induction therapy and is a fantastic option for boosting your skin quality and addressing the signs of ageing.

It can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, fade hyperpigmentation, minimise the appearance of scars, and improve skin tone and texture.

Microneedling is also a fantastic option if you’re suffering from hair loss.

Creating injury to see results

It may sound scary, but it’s really not! Microneedling works by using small needles to create tiny punctures in the skin. This then triggers the body to renew cells to heal these wounds. As a result, you’ll see brighter, healthier looking skin with no lasting damage. Microneedling works in the same way when it penetrates the scalp. This time it rejuvenates hair follicles, leading to thicker and stronger hair growth.

We can also add special solutions to the skin and scalp that boost results even further. These contain things like exosomes and growth factors, which regenerate cells to enhance your skin and hair’s quality.

Numbing cream is used to ensure the treatment is not painful.


Award-winning technology

There are lots of microneedling devices available, but here at Dr Raquel Skin & Cosmetics we use the SkinPen. As an FDA-cleared device, we trust that it’s safe and efficient when used in the right hands.

Thanks to its disposable cartridges, there’s no risk of cross contamination between patients, while clinical studies have found that 94% of patients noticed improvement in their fine lines and wrinkles just one month after treatment.

Radiant skin and healthy-looking hair worth showing off

Depending on the extend of your skin concerns, we’ll recommend between three to six treatments for the best results. Once you’ve completed your course, your skin will be glowing in a good way! Fine lines and wrinkles will be reduced, while acne scarring and hyperpigmentation will have faded.

Two or three microneedling cycles a year will prevent skin concerns from worsening, while keeping it looking fresh and feeling good.

Overall, microneedling is a fantastic treatment if you want to improve your skin health and feel confident going make-up free! It’s also great in combination with other treatments such as dermal fillers.

For hair loss, three to six treatments are again recommended. We’ll also put a maintenance plan in place to avoid further hair loss.
