FIRST TREATMENT ONLY £150!! CALL TODAY TO GET YOUR APPOINTMENT 07711997019
At Beauty by Danika we are now offering the latest technology in skin care! We have introduced micro needling to our salon using the new DERMAPEN. The old version of micro needling was performed using the derma roller. The newest technology is the derma pen, giving much better results, less down time and less discomfort!
Description of treatment
The treatment itself is a form of collagen induction therapy, aka micro needling. This is where a series of needles penetrate the skin causing micro injuries at a perpendicular angle using a specialist medical device. The benefit of a perpendicular treatment over angled needles is that less trauma is caused to the skin, meaning a faster healing time and shorter down time.
For the face this is the new botox, just better. It's more effective, longer lasting and much more softer and natural looking. Micro needling replaces laser therapy for the acne scarring and stretch marks, avoiding the high costs, risk of hypo-pigmentation and long down time associated with such treatments.
Due to this being a much more natural treatment, it must be understood that results will not be seen immediately. Because this treatment relies on your own body repairing itself, it can take up to 6 weeks before any improvement is noticed, and a further 4 months to see the ultimate benefits, so as excellent as it is, this is not an instant or quick fix but more a long term and natural improvement.
The benefits of choosing a micro needling treatment over surgery are:
- its a fraction of the cost
- downtime is minimal (from 24hrs to 3 days)
- pain free due to the use of the topical anaesthetic
- much more natural look and feel
WHAT CAN MICRONEEDLING TREAT?
Microneedling, using the derma pen, is one of the most advanced skin repair treatments. It can treat:
- STRETCH MARKS
- ACNE SCARRING
- LINES AND WRINKLES
- AREAS OF SKIN THAT HAVE LOST ITS ELASTICITY
- GENERAL SCARRING, WHETHER SURGICAL OR ACCIDENTAL
- OPEN PORES
- HYPER AND HYPO-PIGMENTATION, SUCH AS MELASMA
- UV DAMAGE
- IMPROVES THE SURFACE TEXTURE AND COLOUR OF SKIN, MAKING IT LOOK YOUNGER AND MORE VIBRANT
Micro needling isn't a temporary fix like fillers or botox, as the treatment process is stimulating the production of your own natural collagen, that gets lost with age. So no stiff or fake looking faces ! Just completely natural.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The micro needles cause thousands of micro-injuries to the skin making the body start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, working below the surface, in the dermis. New collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced after the treatment. It can take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair can be seen. This process continues to work for up to 6 months after treatment.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Your own collagen has been renewed, meaning the results are permanent until your body breaks it down again over time. You will be provided with a long lasting and natural enhancement which will naturally wear as you age.
IS IT SAFE?
Micro needling is very safe. Your therapist will conduct a thorough assessment before any treatment to ensure this. On the rare occasion you could be at high risk of sides effects or have a history that means you are not suitable for this treatment. Your therapist will let you know after your consultation. The treatment doesn't involve injecting the skin with any substances. The micro needles very lightly prick the surface of the skin to create thousands of micro-injuries.
DOES IT HURT?
This treatment will not hurt, as a topical anaesthetic is used, which is very effective at numbing the area to be treated. However, everybody is different and some patients may find the treatment slightly uncomfortable. If this is the case, the needle depth and speed can be altered during treatment to make it more comfortable.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
It's best to allow yourself a 2 hour slot for one treatment, as a thorough consultation needs to be carried out, the anaesthetic needs time to become effective and the treatment itself needs to be performed. Also you need to be confident with knowing about what after care you need to follow.
HOW WILL THE SKIN LOOK?
The skin will look red and will the start to feel tight, and maybe itchy, as the healing process begins. It will feel hot and maybe tingly, but these are all very normal side effects and should lessen after 24hours, but up to 3 days in some cases, depending on the skin type and how sensitive your skin is. You will receive a sensicure cream with your treatment to help with these side effects. After your down time (from 24hrs to 3 days, if you have very sensitive skin) your skin will begin to look brighter and more vibrant. During the 6 weeks after your treatment, the regeneration and repair process starts to tighten the skin.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
The number of treatments needed will depend on the area to be treated, the size of the area and the severity.
- Skin rejuvenation treatments - 1-6 depending on the severity of skin tone, texture, lines/wrinkles to be treated.
- Acne scars - 2-4 treatments depending on severity. More may be needed if scars are very deep.
- Stretch marks - 4-8 treatments, although, the first few treatments will thicken and tighten the skin and visible colour improvements can be seen.
- General scar removal - 3-6 treatments depending on severity.
- Pigmentation - 3-6 treatments depending on severity.
During a course of treatments , each treatment needs to be spaced AT LEAST 4 weeks apart, to give the skin plenty of time to recover. Patients with more sensitive skin will need more time in between treatments.
WHAT MAINTENANCE IS NEEDED ?
Unlike many other facials, micro needling isn't needed every 4 weeks /8 weeks / 12 weeks after your course . You are recommended to repeat your treatment, after your recommended course, every 6 months, so just twice a year! However you can safely repeat this treatment every 3 months if you wanted to.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Treatments range from £150 - £300
A micro needling facial will cost £300, whereas a small scar will cost £149. The facial cost includes your sensicure cream, which needs to be applied for up to 72 hours after your treatment.
Although micro needling seems expensive, in comparison to other treatments, such as microdermabrasion, you need a lot more in a course (usually up to 10 treatments that need to be performed every week!) and your maintenance is then monthly, costing you a lot more in the long run and not getting you any where near the results you will get from just one micro needling treatment ! On top of the cost adding up with the cheaper treatments , the salon visits are a lot more frequent, meaning you having to take more time out of your busy schedule!
