MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT in London.
The Harley Street Dermatology Clinic is able to offer microneedling treatment through the use of the SkinPen. Microneedling is the use of tiny needles to penetrate through the skin to induce a wound healing reaction. This results in hundreds of microchannels created in the skin which increases the delivery of the specialist product and stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin fibres. This increased production of natural fibres within the skin means the treatment works very well at treating scars such as for treating acne scarring, stretch marks as well as fine lines and wrinkles, and smoother, firmer, more toned skin.
SkinPen has revolutionised micro skin needling, making it easier, safer and less painful to get maximum results by using skin precision. It produces significantly more microchannels with one pass (98,000 channels per minute).
Microneedling is mostly used on the face and may treat various scars, wrinkles, and large pores, but also could be used on the neck, decollete, and scalp. 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 physicians assistant with many years of cumulative experience in providing treatment to skin patients.
