Microneedling / RF

What is microneedling and how does it work?

Micro needling involves causing multiple small injuries to the skin using needles on a hand held roller, called Derma Roller, or by using a more sophisticated automated equipment.

This treatment can also be conducted in combination with radio frequency, at our clinics we use Scarlet as the device.

What is the procedure like?

  • Once the skin is cleansed, a numbing cream is applied.

  • Then needles are rolled or stamped on the skin.

  • Post that the area is cleansed again or actives are applied and you are good to go.

  • You may experience a slight redness or swelling on your skin for a couple of days. But it will fade away.

What can I get out of this?

Micro needling can be used to achieve the following objectives –

  • To improve the texture of your skin –  smoothen it.

  • It works great on acne scars, specially the pitted ones.

  • It stimulates collagen and is an economical yet super treatment for

○ anti ageing

○ skin tightening

○ facial lines

○ open pores.

  • It works well for oily, acne prone skin and stretch marks when combined with radio frequency .

What can I get out of this?

  • Make sure you wash your skin and keep it clean.

  • Ensure the pillowcase you use is fresh and clean.

  • Avoid dust and pets near your skin.

  • For the next two days use plenty of moisturiser and a simple sun screen.

  • Make up is ok but use only your fingertips for the application.

  • Please avoid creams like anti acne or anti-ageing for the next 2 days and nights.

  • You may experience a slight redness and possibly minimal swelling. It should resolve by itself and fade away within minutes to hours.Do not pick on your skin. Redness is a simple sensitivity to the procedure
