Microneedling

This treatment stimulates collagen production and skin repair – leaving you with smoother, firmer skin.

Microneedling is a procedure that uses ultra-fine needles to make multiple, tiny pricks in the skin. The punctures stimulate the body’s natural healing response and increase collagen and elastin production. Microneedling is frequently used to treat facial scarring, enlarged pores, wrinkles, and other signs of ageing. Following a course of treatment, the skin appears plumped, smoother, and rejuvenated.

Is this right for me?

Microneedling is an effective treatment that can address a range of skin problems, including scarring, pigmentation, and skin ageing.

Microneedling can help:

  • Rejuvenate dull, tired, and lifeless skin.
  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Smooth scarring from acne or chickenpox.
  • Fade uneven pigmentation due to age or sun damage.
  • Improve the appearance of stretch marks.

A course of at least four treatments may be needed to achieve the very best results. The specialists at Bella Vou can offer individual guidance and advice.

What does this involve?

The specialist practitioner at Bella Vou uses a derma roller with small needles to make a series of small punctures in the surface of the skin. The process can sting a little; however, the team at Bella Vou will apply a topical anaesthetic cream to numb the area and maintain your comfort.

No specific preparation is needed for your therapy. However, you may be asked to stop taking some medicines such as aspirin and ibuprofen to prevent bruising and bleeding. It may also be necessary to stop using topical retinoid preparations.If you have any concerns, the staff at Bella Vou will always be on hand to answer your questions and offer support.
