Microneedling

Microneedling In Essex

Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) is a highly effective skin treatment for those in search of a minimally invasive facial aesthetics procedure.

Microneedling is an ideal option to treat the following:

  • Fine lines/wrinkles
  • Scarring (acne/surgical)
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Stretch marks
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Enlarged pores
  • Reduced skin elasticity

At FaceKind we use an automatic, CE certified microneedling device to repeatedly create microscopic punctures in the skin. The pinpricks cause slight injury to the skin, which in turn stimulates collagen and elastin production. Over time, the skin regenerates and repairs itself to produce smoother, firmer, brighter looking skin. The tiny channels created also allows deeper penetration of active ingredients from the skincare products applied during the procedure to further enhance results.

Microneedling is typically spaced one month apart. The number of required sessions vary for each individual, depending on the severity of the skin concern, condition and age. We ideally recommend a series of 3-6 sessions for optimal results, nonetheless you will notice an immediate benefit after just one session.

Numbing cream will be applied and left on the skin for 45 minutes to increase comfort prior to microneedling. The procedure itself takes approximately 30 -60 minutes. Redness is common immediately after treatment and flaking of the skin a few days later to reveal fresh, radiant skin.
