We offer Amieamed Exceed and Skinpen micro-needling at The Skin Cellar. Both devices are the only micro-needling systems that are FDA approved. Ensuring unrivalled results and safety . Micro-needling is often advertised as ‘Collagen induction therapy’ ‘ Bio collagen induction’ . We keep the jargon simple, all these names describe one treatment – Micro-needling that induces the collage production in your skin.
Micro-needling super boosts the collagen production which plumps the skin, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reduces the appearance of stretch marks, improves laxity and scarring and gives a general rejuvenating glow to the skin.
Microneedling has quickly become one of the most popular skincare treatments on the market. With guaranteed results, it is a ‘no brainer’ in term of results. Here at The Skin Cellar safety is first and foremost and that is why we have the only FDA cleared and certified device on the market. The SkinPen is the most advanced device on the market providing high quality results and the utmost in safe clinical practice.
How does it work?
Microneedling uses the body’s natural biological processes to rejuvenate and repair skin. When we create ‘trauma’ to the skin it triggers the natural wound healing response of the cells in the dermis to repair and self-regenerate. Part of the wound healing and repair process is the body’s ability to produce collagen.
As we grow older our collagen production declines, Microneedling super boosts the collagen production which plumps the skin, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reduces pores size, pigmentation, appearance of stretch marks, improves laxity and scarring and gives a general rejuvenating glow to the skin. The process originates from a clinical concept which was introduced for treating subcutaneous scars and wrinkles.
Microneedling at The Skin Cellar
At The Skin Cellar we use Amieamed Exceed and the SkinPen Micro-needling pen. They are the only Micro-needling pens that are FDA approved.
The needles we use are a surgical grade and obviously are sterile and disposable. We follow strict hygiene rules throughout all our treatments and everything we use during the treatment down to our gauze is individually packaged, sterile and disposable.
The Microneedling Pen can be altered in depth which is a great advantage over the roller method that you may see elsewhere as we can vary depth according the areas on the face that are more sensitive. We can also provide a needling service that reaches varying layer depths and therefore can be give specific results for different skin concerns. Microneedling will not produce the required results if we only microneedle to a set depth that does not change each visit.
Is it painful?
The treatment is not painful although some client with a lower pain threshold may find it uncomfortable but we can provide solutions in clinic so do not worry. A full consultation is recommended before your appointment where we can describe and discuss clients expectations. We can also take this opportunity to show some before and after photos of clients. Due to client privacy these cannot be posted online/social media. We recommend a course of treatments to begin the process of rejuvenation followed once yearly treatments to maintain the collagen production. The amazing result with Microneedling is that it continues to produce desired results up to three months following the initial treatment. This is due to the different types of collagen being produced at different stages following treatment.
You can upgrade your treatment by adding on LED Phototherapy as it not only helps to calm and heal the skin but provides additional anti-ageing results.
What is the downtime?
You will appear red/pink when leaving the salon but an in depth aftercare service is provided . The next day if you have to wear make up we suggest mineral make-up. Please consult with one of the team if you have further questions on any aspect of this service.
