At Alive Medispa we use the latest Microneedling technology. Microneedling is a minimally invasive technique that creates thousands of epidermal microchannels that allow substances to pass through the horny layer of the skin, maximising the activity of the active substances.
What you need to know
What device do we use?
The simple questions are always the best. With so many devices on the market this was not an easy decision. To deliver the best results for you, we wanted a reliable, reputable well know brand. We therefore use the Mesoestetic M.Pen Pro ultimate microneedling hand held device. The M-Pen Pro allows us to adjust the depth of the needle to optimise the treatment for each individual.
Will there be any downtime?
Yes, you will!! Some downtime is completely normal. This will usually be a short period after your treatment. It will include moderate pink/red skin immediately afterwards. The redness will take anywhere between 24 - 72 hours to reduce and will feel like a mild sunburn. In most cases the pinkness to the skin usually resolves within 24 - 48 hours.
Mineral make-up can be applied after treatment. For more information about this see one of our Skin Technicians.
What are some of the benefits?
Yay! This is the best bit and you will love it. The benefits of skin needling include:
- Activates the skin repair mechanisms;
- Reduces the appearance of expression lines and pore size;
- Reduces the appearance of hypertrophic scars and stretch marks;
- Improves skin firmness;
- Stimulates the hair follicles.
When can needling help?
We recommend needling when you need to enhance the delivery of ingredients into the dermis. The micro channels that form, after needling, improve and enhance the delivery mechanism of products. This can be used with great effect for concerns including, hyperpigmentation, lack of vitality and flaccidity and wrinkles.
What is included in our needling treatments?
Omnilux Light Therapy
Included with all our needling treatments is an omnilux light therapy treatment.
Omnilux treatments work to promote cellular activity, increase blood flow and encourage healing.
Ampoules are also included with all our treatments.
A popular ampoule is Vitamin C, which is used to brighten tired, lacklustre and dull skin.
We finish off every skin needling treatment with a cooling, and refreshing masque.
