Stimulating Collagen Production
This treatment involves tiny needles oscillating up and down in a vertical plane to create tiny controlled punctures in this skin. This then stimulates the healing process and production of collagen and elastin.
Rejuvenate your skin
It is a great treatment to rejuvenate the skin, increase luminosity, reduce large pores and acne scarring. In clinic we use the Derma FNS pen from SkinMed, it is the preferred needling device of Prof Tony Chu, leading Dermatologist and founder of the Acne and Rosacea Association UK. Most needling devices on the market use a spring to pull the needles back before reinserting. The Derma FNS pen is the only pen on the market to use a unique motor that fully retracts the needles back before reinserting, this reduces the dragging effect that other devices have.
