MEDICAL MICRO NEEDLING
- Collagen Stimulation
The Platinum Needling Pen is a motorised, vibrating instrument, which ensures comfort and minimal trauma to the skin, whilst producing noticeable results right from your very first treatment.
Collagen stimulation, stretch marks, deeper lines and scars can be targeted by using our medical micro needling treatment protocols. This involves using longer needles - usually at depths of 1mm-2mm - to encourage the production of collagen and repair mechanisms that our bodies produce naturally, to help our skin recover from wounds like cuts for example. These healing factors are ramped up when we use our micro needling pen to produce thousands of tiny wounds within the skin. This is known as controlled wounding, as we are working at precise depths, and carefully adjusting the speed of the needling pen, and the needle depths, according to the specific areas we are treating, and the condition of your skin.
We can target deeper lines and wrinkles with our mono (single) needle cartridge, to make significant changes to frown lines, crow’s feet, nose-lip lines, lines above the lip and acne scars.
Alongside our Platinum needling pen, we apply the FILLMED NCTF 135 HA serum to the tiny channels that the Platinum pen creates. FILLMED New Cellular Treatment Factor (NCTF) is a medical grade injectable solution that prevents, slows down and corrects the signs of skin ageing. It’s one of the very few CE marked Mesotherapy products available for safe injection into the skin.
The Platinum Meso Pen can treat specific areas of the face and body:
Face, neck, décolleté, chin, abdomen,buttocks, thighs and other areas
Wrinkles and lines
Barcode lines (lips)
Excess fat or skin on neck
Tired eyes/dark circles
Eye fat bags
When deciding to undergo this type of treatment, it’s good to consider the following important information about the safety and efficacy of the products that are going to be used with this procedure
Since the advent of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) many more people are now aware of the MHRA (Medicines And Health Regulatory Authority) In addition to regulation of medicines so that they are safe to to be used/taken by the general population, the MHRA also regulates certain products and equipment used in our branch of practice, known as Aesthetic Beauty/Medicine.
In particular, micro needling, Laser treatments for cosmetic reasons, such as hair removal, and skin peels are being looked at very carefully by the MHRA, and new regulations for these treatments are under way. We know that in the case of micro needling, there are two main concerns that the MHRA wishes to regulate:
The products or serums injected into the skin
The micro needling devices used, in particular micro needling pens
In both cases, the serums or products injected into the skin, and the implements used to inject the products, should both bear CE certifications. This is a very complex subject, but basically, if you have micro needling treatments at our clinic, you can be assured that our micro needling pen has CE certification and paperwork supporting its authenticity and safety. Micro needling pens and the micro needles used within them both need to conform to the required safety standards, such as prevention of body fluids entering the main chamber of the pen, presenting a risk of cross-contamination, and the micro needles themselves should be the correct gauge, and be free from barbs that can tear or injure the skin. For your assurance, the needles are 33g ultra sharp, and of the highest quality, encased in biocompatible medical plastic.
The FILLMED NCTF HA serum that we are using alongside our micro-needling protocols is CE certified for injection into the skin. It is currently one of only a handful of serums that is certified, and therefore it’s important to check with your practitioner what is being used on your skin before you undergo treatments.
Immediately following your treatment, we will apply the FILLMED Hyaluronic Youth Mask, which contains skin-identical Hyaluronic Acid, as well as collagen and green tea, to soothe and hydrate your skin, in addition to using the Dermalux MD LED light canopy, to aid wound healing and calm your skin, whilst you relax for 15 minutes.
You will be provided with an aftercare product to apply for 1-2 days following your treatment. There may be slight redness and swelling for up to 24 hours, although not in every case. You can return to normal activities after 48 hours.
