Micro needling IN SHREWSBURY
Microneedling, or medical skin needling is a treatment used to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and is also very effective in the treatment of acne scarring. The treatment is commonly used on the face, hands, neck and decolletage to reduce scarring, stretch marks and fine wrinkles such as crows feet.
The treatment works by stimulating the body’s own collagen production by puncturing the skin with lots of tiny needles, which creates wounds in the dermis which induces the release of growth factors, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. This damage to do the dermis encourages the body to produce more collagen and elastin to repair itself, making the skin smoother, plumper and more youthful.
WHAT DOES MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT DO?
Microneedling is mostly used on the face and may treat various scars, wrinkles, and large pores, but also could be used on the neck, décolleté, and scalp.
Increased production of natural fibres within the skin means the treatment works very well at treating scars such as post acne scarring, stretch marks as well as fine lines and wrinkles, and smoother, firmer, more toned skin.
A series of treatments is usually recommended 4-6 weeks apart, although 1-2 sessions works well as a general skin refreshment. It is suitable for all skin types. This treatment is led by our team of highly qualified dermatology specialist nurses and physician’s assistant with many years of cumulative experience in providing treatment to skin patients.
