Microneedling treatments in Watford
What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a procedure whereby a device, such as a dermaroller or an automated pen device, is used upon the surface of the skin creating superficial punctures that stimulate a healing response. A professional microneedling treatment is intended to cause a degree of trauma to the skin.This trauma stimulates new collagen cells in abundance.
The ageing process, low body weight, regular intense exercise, smoking, drinking, diet and the environment all impacts collagen and elastin. By creating 1000’s of minor wounds the skin begins to heal itself, as would any wound in 3 stages.Microneedling treatments are simple, safe and quick to apply to clients. Each treatment lasts around half an hour. Stimulates the production of elastin and collagen in the skin without causing damage. Microchannels created by minuscule needles enable greater absorption of active ingredients into the skin creating better results for your clients. These superficial breaks created by your microneedling device boost the skin’s repair system resulting in firmer and younger looking skin.
What is a dermaroller?
Dermaroller is an incredibly popular skin needling device. It is a cylindrical drum shape surrounded by microneedles. The device creates superficial breaks in the skin when rolled upon it. The mild trauma caused to the skin encourages the growth of collagen fibres.
