Throughout daily life, our skin is susceptible to sun damage and impurities due to its exposure to pollution and irritants. Burying deep within layers, this damage could fast lead to unwanted pigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles. Our non-surgical, nurse-led skin needling treatment in Beckenham is designed to safely and effectively rejuvenate skin from the inside out.
Why you might choose Skin Needling
Our non-invasive skin needling treatment is suitable for all skin types and can be used anywhere on the body. It is good for combatting melasma, acne scarring, and signs of ageing as well as for boosting skin health.
Unfortunately, this anti-ageing injectable treatment may not be ideal for those who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or currently living with a poorly controlled medical condition. Your practitioner will be able to advise you further during your initial consultation.
There are a handful of steps you may be required to take during the lead-up to your skin needling treatment in Beckenham.
- Anti-inflammatory medications, including ibuprofen, should be avoided for at least 3 days prior to your appointment to ensure that your skin can follow the natural inflammatory process for maximum rejuvenation.
- Blood thinning medication should be avoided if possible to minimise bruising post-treatment.
- Sun and UV ray exposure should be avoided to ensure your skin remains clear from damage. Utilising a SPF when leaving the house is recommended, no matter the weather.
How Skin Needling works
Redness and irritation are normal to see post-treatment and should fade within 4 hours. It is important not to pick or pull any loose skin to ensure your skin heals correctly.
You should stay away from UV rays, chlorine, excessive exercise, and heat, including saunas, for the following 2 days. You can then ease your skin into treatments by utilising a light moisturiser.
How long will the effects of Skin Needling last?
The results from your skin needling will not be instant, and you may need a course of 3-6 treatments before the results begin to show fully. These results will then last for around 3-6 months. To maintain a long-lasting desired look, top-up sessions are advisable.
