What is it used for?
Microneedling is an effective procedure for the treatment of signs of ageing, wrinkles and scars.
Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), it involves puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles, using a SkinPen. This stimulates the skin’s natural wound healing process resulting in the formation and remodelling of collagen, which supports the underlying tissue.
The procedure is effective on all parts of the body, including face, neck and décolletage. It can be used for all skin types from light to dark.
After a consultation with one of our experienced clinicians, we will recommend a course of treatment based on your own particular goals. This is typically between three to six procedures, spaced at monthly intervals.
What are the benefits?
Microneedling has been shown to improve: skin texture; the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; and the appearance of scars (including acne scarring and stretch marks). Unlike some other aesthetic treatments, it can be used long-term when properly spaced and overseen by a clinician, and has lasting results.
We use SkinPen Precision – a globally BSI accredited microneedling device using a single use disposable pen for each procedure. The microneedling itself takes around 15-20 minutes. However, your appointment will include time for a local anaesthetic cream to be applied to the area being treated – usually an additional 35 minutes.
Most people find microneedling a comfortable experience and report feeling only the slight vibration of the SkinPen during the procedure.
The skin will appear slightly pink to red immediately following the treatment, similar to a mild to moderate sunburn. This usually resolves within 48 hours so there is very little to no downtime. The result is more youthful, smoother and tighter looking skin.
The cost per session is £200.

“Relaxing, luxurious clinic with highly professional staff. This is high-end treatment rather than fluffy, superficial pampering. Second SkinPen session today and my skin has already improved after just one treatment and four weeks’ use of ZO products.”
