SkinPen Skin Needling in Aylesbury – how does it work?
Your aesthetic practitioner will explain how SkinPen works to make sure you gain a full understanding. Our system makes use of advanced micro-medical skin-needling, a process which is used to help encourage cell turnover and generate new skin tissue. It is a very safe procedure and can leave you with smoother, brighter and healthier skin. The body will react to the treatment by working within the dermis layer of the skin. This is a process which takes time as it encourages the formation of collagen and then the generation of new skin cells.

This makes this particular treatment one of the most long-lasting in skin care.
