WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
At Dr Grace Kelly Aesthetic Skin Clinic in Chalfont St Peter, Buckinghamshire, we perform microneedling with the precision of SkinPen, a medical device that provides a safe and effective way of creating an even texture and tone. It can successfully address a variety of conditions on the face and neck, including: lines and wrinkles, pigmentation (melasma, age spots) and acne scars.
HOW DOES MICRO-NEEDLING WORK?
Micro-needling at our clinic in Buckinghamshire works by pricking the skin with a series of tiny needles to produce multiple microchannels in the skin. We prefer to use SkinPen over other skin microneedling devices as it is controlled electronically, which means we can precisely control the depth of penetration. This process causes minor trauma which stimulates a phased response that helps to rejuvenate the complexion. Firstly the skin works to clean itself, removing dirt and debris whilst also regenerating new tissues through increased blood flow. Secondly, new skin cells are produced to repair the tiny wounds, along with new blood vessels. Lastly, the new skin cells and tissues replenish the complexion to reveal fresh and healthy skin. Our expert practitioners in Chalfont St Peter near Gerrards Cross often recommend a course of 3 treatments, undertaken every 4 – 6 weeks.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT FROM SKIN MICRONEEDLING?
Micro-needling at Dr Grace Kelly in Chalfont St Peter can produce great results. A noticeable improvement to the look and feel of the skin may take between 3 and 6 months to fully develop as the skin replenishes itself. Remodelling the tissues softens the look of wrinkles and fills in the characteristic indentations of scarring for a smoother appearance to the skin. Repairing damaged cells, as well as producing new ones, can eliminate areas of pigmentation for a brighter, more even tone.
