Microneedling stimulates your skin so that it will regenerate and repair itself naturally, resulting in smoother, brighter, younger and healthier looking skin.

It is used as a key treatment in rejuvenating skin with the following conditions:

  • Acne scars
  • Photo-damaged and ageing skin
  • Facial and décolleté lines and wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • Hand rejuvenation

During medical micro-needling tiny needles penetrate the skin which activates processes in your cells which also occur after injuries.

The body detects the puncture of the needles as small injuries in the skin which triggers a healing process. Treated cells release growth factors, which stimulate the bodies natural collagen production. This increased collagen level leads to an improvement of your skin’s appearance.

What are the results?

Following the procedure your skin will start to naturally regenerate and repair itself, working below the surface in the dermis. This will take some time as new collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and the dermis layer is rejuvenated.

It can take up to six weeks before you see signs of this regeneration and repair, although the process will continue to work over the following months, leaving you with natural, long lasting results.

Is the treatment right for me?

The device can be used on the face, neck and body and is effective on skin of all ages.

We will assess your suitability for treatment at your consultation and using our VISIA skin analysis technology.

Are there any side effects?

Immediately after the procedure you will look as though you have moderate sunburn and your skin may feel warmer and tighter than usual. This normally starts to subside after one to two hours and will return to normal within 24 to 36 hours.

We will also recommend suitable products to soothe and calm your skin as well as sun protection to further protect and enhance the rejuvenation process.

How does it work?

EDS creates thousands of micro medical needle columns into your skin, each one penetrating into the dermis layer. These columns will stimulate the skin, encouraging it to regenerate and repair itself. They’ll then rapidly close so that your skin can quickly recover.

A topical anaesthetic is applied to ensure the treatment is comfortable throughout.

The treatment intensity can be accurately controlled throughout the procedure. This means that needle depth and speed can be adjusted depending on the area being treated and the particular condition of that area of skin.

To maximise your results, 3 procedures are recommended approximately 6 weeks apart.
