Tiny skin penetrations – big results…
Searching for “microneedling Surrey”? Microneedling is an innovative skin therapy that has been embraced by skincare industry experts as a fantastic solution for a wide range of skin conditions.
Most skin complaints arise due to damage to, or age-related reduction in, collagen and elastin. Scars, acne scarring and pock marks, fine lines, uneven skin due to cellulite or stretch marks; a whole host of skin conditions are perfect candidates for microneedling therapies – also referred to as collagen induction therapies.
If you’re looking for a skin treatment solution that is non-surgical with minimal downtime/recovery period, microneedling could be for you.
With technology advancing all the time, new microneedling products are constantly emerging on the market. As specialists in treating the mildest through to the most challenging skin conditions, at Harley Street Skin Clinic we invest in the most proven, safe and effective products available. Not only that but we have the expertise to look at your individual concerns, issues and objectives, and tailor the treatment or combination of treatments to suit you.
As we age or sometimes due to skin damage such as acne, surgery or through pregnancy, our skin loses its collagen and elastin. These two elements are vital to the tightness, radiance, volume, smoothness and overall quality of our skin. When we lose collagen and elastic, the results can be sagging, wrinkly, bumpy, marked, tired or aged looking skin which may cause distress and a loss of confidence.
Microneedling products work in a variety of ways to cleverly penetrate the skin to a depth where it will be stimulated to rejuvenate itself via the production of collagen and elastin. By disturbing or ‘wounding’ not just the top layer of skin, but the one below, this stimulation causes the skin to reheal and repair itself with new, fresh skin, leading to a more refreshed and youthful look and reducing the appearance of scars and marks as the new skin emerges.
The procedure involves tiny pin prick micro penetrations to the skin by microneedles on a roller or pen. This simultaneously creates enough of a ‘trauma’ to the skin to encourage natural rejuvenation and new, smooth skin growth, but without damaging the skin in any significant or noticeable way.
Microneedling at the Harley Street Skin Clinic is performed using the following proven, high quality, market leading technologies;
Dermapen is an industry-wide respected microneedling device which offers effective results with no negative impact on the skin. Thanks to 12 microscopic needles that oscilate fast, the device can glide over the skin easily and safety, penetrating the layers of skin without damage or tearing. It’s also incredibly sterile and safe, using surgical grade disposal needle tips. Dermapen can offer targeted depths of penetration due to adjustable needles, is able to be used on hard to reach areas such as around the eyes, and gives consistent – and excellent – results.
Dermaroller is an effective microneedling treatment which works to ‘traumatise’ the skin in a non-painful, non-damaging way. It stimulates collagen production though the use of 200 microscopic needles which cause tiny pin pricks as it’s rolled back and forth over the skin. Highly effective for scars and fine lines, the Dermaroller is so effective in stimulating collagen production that often the beneficial rejuvenation effect will continue up to 12 months after the treatment. As the collagen moves towards the surface of the skin, the skin becomes healthier, thicker, smoother, glowing and youthful with the visibility of scarring or marks reduced.
The SkinPen® microneedling device is equipped with 12 tiny micro-points attached to an automated unit equipped with a high-speed motor, which when placed on the skin, delivers tiny vertical punctures to a precise depth of the skin. A safe and effective way to achieve improved, smoother and more refreshed looking skin due to the stimulation of collagen; it is also commonly used for the reduction of acne scars.
Microneedling treatments will generally be recommended as a course, with the duration of each treatment depending on the objective, but likely to be up to an hour a time with treatments spread out 4-6 weeks at a time. Recovery time is minimal and results will be seen in up to six weeks but the beneficial results of the treatment will continue as collagen production is stimulated into the longer term. Initially some redness and swelling can be expected with redness and swelling subsiding within 1-2 days.

When will I see results?
You will see results very quickly within 2-3 days.
How long will I need to recover?
You will have erythema or redness for 24-48 hours after treatment. You may peel or experience dry skin after treatment but this is only temporary.
How long will results last?
After the initial course of treatments, you can expect longevity of results particularly for scarring. In the case of scars, you will reach optimal results.
