Fine Lines & Wrinkles
Fine lines and wrinkles are a normal part of the ageing process. As people get older, their skin becomes thinner, drier, and less elastic, leading to wrinkles, creases, and fine lines. These can be easily treated with the SkinPen, which helps strengthen the skin’s structure and smooths and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the skin's surface.
A course of 3-6 treatments is recommended every four weeks.
Avoid alcohol the day before micro-needling treatments.
Do not use creams containing retinol for 72 hours.
A topical anaesthetic will be applied and left on your skin for 20-30 minutes to make the treatment pain-free. The SkinPen will be moved over the treatment area to create micro punctures in the skin. This removes the old, damaged collagen and stimulates the fibroblast cells to produce new collagen and elastin fibres. This strengthens the skin, smooths, and reduces the depth of fine lines and wrinkles.
The skin will be red with mild swelling.
Do not touch the skin immediately after the treatment.
A tight, tender feeling and the skin may become dry and flake in the first few days. Do not pick the dry skin. Allow this to flake off naturally.
Pat dry skin after shower or bath.
Do not use perfumed, AHA or Alcohol containing products for 48 hours.
Do not go swimming or use steam rooms and saunas for 4-5 days.
