At Karma House Clinic in Aylesbury, we make use of the SkinPen treatment in our medical skin needling and cosmetic skin needling processes. SkinPen is a treatment used to help with skin complaints such as scarring and indented skin for example, as a result of acne.
Cosmetic & Medical Skin Needling: How Does it Work?
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 process begins with a consultation that takes place before the initial treatment. This allows our practitioners to be sure that you are suitable for treatment and ensure that you know what to expect. For new clients there will be forms to complete so that we are aware of your requirements and medical history and can make informed decisions based on this information and your best interests. Your aesthetic practitioner will explain how SkinPen works to make sure you gain a full understanding of the treatment and you’ll have the opportunity to ask any questions.
The body will react to the treatment by working within the dermis layer of the skin. This is a process that takes time as it encourages the formation of collagen and then the generation of new skin cells. Blood supply to the skin is also encouraged and you will see the benefits of the treatment emerging over the following weeks and months. This makes this particular treatment one of the most long lasting in skin care.
In addition to scars and ageing skin, our SkinPen can be used to help with stretch marks and fine lines and wrinkles on the face, chest and neck. It may surprise you to know that this particular treatment takes just an hour to complete.
What Should You Expect?
There are a number of fully qualified and experienced aesthetic practitioners here who carry out this popular treatment, so you can be sure that you are in safe hands the whole time.
Following your skin needling treatment your skin will be red and sore. It will feel warm and tight, often compared to sunburn. Within 24 hours this will gradually reduce and you are given an aftercare serum to help sooth the skin while it heals. We advise you to allow 5-7 days for your skin to settle down post treatment.
This treatment is carried out by an aesthetic practitioner or aesthetic prescribing nurse. The main thing is to ensure that your skin is cared for properly following the procedure. This will ensure that the healing is going well and that you can get maximum results from the procedure. Your practitioner will advise you on full aftercare
Keep in Mind:
We advise that you do not have this treatment close to a special occasion due to the red tone of the skin that develops afterwards and the tendency for dry skin. It is a good idea for you to discuss your needs with your practitioner at your initial consultation.
Follow our tips on caring for your skin you will be able to maximise the benefits of the treatment. For the best results you can always combine the SkinPen with other treatments available at Karma House Clinic in Aylesbury, such as the IPL hair removal and really give your confidence a boost!
