Micro Needling

Micro needling, also known as skin needling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a treatment that uses tiny needles designed to create minuscule traumas on your skin's surface. These micro-traumas trigger your skin into healing itself, activating the release of new collagen and elastin to help repair any damage and rejuvenate your skin. Micro needling treatments are less invasive than cosmetic surgery, result in minimal downtime and offer visible results.

Depending on your micro needling procedure, additional serums, hyaluronic acid or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) can be applied to the skin to further boost results.

At Eden MediSpa, we use the latest revolutionary platform of aesthetic functionality, Dermapen Inject™. This platform combines meso-injection technology (MesoGun) with concentrated carboxytherapy (CO2) and fractional micro-needling (DermaPen 4). It is ideal for Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) or Hyaluronic acid, Carboxytherapy and Collagen Induction Therapy (DermaPen 4) all combined in one specialised treatment.

• Smoother, brighter, healthier skin
• Excellent for fine lines, sun damaged or crepey skin
• Reduces the appearance of scarring, including acne scarring
• Stretch marks

Micro needling can be combined with MesoGun, Carboxytherapy, PRP and hyaluronic acid.

The micro needling device uses sterile tiny micro needles to create minuscule pin point punctures in the skin. The body perceives this as damage, which in turn stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin in your skin. Importantly, consecutive skin needling sessions will trick your body to continue the natural healing process and the production of collagen to a cosmetic level. This improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars, including acne scars and enlarged pores.

The micro point punctures created can also improve the penetration of hyaluronic acid, PRP, vitamins and minerals into the skin by about 1000 times. These stimulate skin renewal, helping to make the skin appear fresher and younger.
DERMAPEN
Dermapen is designed to tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin and it can also be an effective acne scarring solution. The handheld device includes 16 microscopic needles, which are gently moved across the face to cause minuscule puncture marks, activating the production of collagen and elastin. The depth of the puncture can be adjusted depending on your skin concern, allowing for deeper penetration where required. A specialised cocktail of serums or PRP can be applied as an add on to this treatment to help achieve the best possible results.

MESOTHERAPY
Mesotherapy is an effective skin rejuvenation treatment that enables a specialised combination of vitamins, minerals, hyaluronic acid or PRP to be injected into the skin thanks to the use of multiple microneedles. The blend of nutrients used can be tailored to your individual skin concerns. Mesotherapy is an unbelievably versatile treatment for the face and body. It can help to tackle many skin concerns, from wrinkles and sagging skin to stretch marks.

DERMAROLLER
Dermaroller uses a network of micro needles, gently rolling over the face or body, to trigger the production of collagen. It can be an effective skin tightening treatment targeting loose skin, wrinkles and acne scarring. The minuscule punctures caused by the micro needles prompt the skin to produce fresh collagen and elastin, triggering a natural healing process to help repair any damage and smooth out its texture.
This treatment can be used on all skin types. However, prior to your treatment, we will take a full medical history to confirm suitability for the treatment. You will also be asked to give informed consent. The procedure, its benefits and potential side effects will be explained to you. During this time, you are most welcome to ask any questions you may have. You will be provided with verbal or written after care instructions. We will also make a recommendation for home care to further enhance your results.

Any treatments that involve micro needling technology may feel slightly uncomfortable, especially when deeper needle penetration is required to achieve maximum results. Our highly experienced therapists will apply a numbing cream prior to each session to ensure you feel comfortable.

As with all treatments that involve needles, there is always a small possibility of bruising. To reduce this risk, we advise you not to take anti-inflammatory pain-killers (e.g. Aspirin, Nurofen, Voltaren), St Johns Wort or Vitamin E supplements for at least a week prior to your treatment. These all increase your risk for bruising. Alcohol also increases your risk for bruising, therefore we advise you to not have any alcohol for 24 hours.

Depending on the size of the treated area, each session can take from 30 minutes to one hour.
Following your micro needling treatment, your skin may appear slightly red or swollen and may also feel tighter than usual. This will subside usually within a few hours. After your micro needling treatment, your therapist may apply mineral makeup to cover any redness should you wish and get you ready to return to your normal daily activities.

It can take between 3 and 9 months for the results to fully appear, as the body takes time to generate new collagen. However, the results can last for years, depending on factors such as persistent, continued sun damage, smoking and your overall health and lifestyle.
A course of 3 or more treatments every 4 to 6 weeks is recommended. Once you have completed your initial course, you will benefit from having occasional follow-up treatments to maintain the results.

The number of sessions depends on the skin condition we are treating, but most people need several treatments to see the best results.

With mild to moderate acne scarring, for example, we usually recommend 3 or 4 sessions. Deeper scarring and stretch marks may need more than 5 treatments.
