Microneedling is a collagen inducing skin therapy originating from the old Chinese tradition of acupuncture. Whilst great for skin rejuvenation, Microneedling also treats acne scarring, enlarged pores, fine lines and wrinkles and pigmentation. Microneedling can be used on most areas of the body. Tiny needles are penetrated into the dermis creating micro trauma which stimulates a wound healing process to create new collagen and elastin matrix’s. Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment, using the body’s own defence system to create plumper, fresher, younger looking skin without the need for toxins or surgical interventions. At Skinworks Jersey we use the Dr Pen Ultima M8 Microneedling Derma Pen which is the newest on the market. Using the thinnest needle tips on the market, this makes treatment with this device more comfortable for clients and allows our Practitioners to have precise control of the needles to treat specific areas. Topical anaesthetic cream is applied to the area treated to promote comfort.
