Microneedling Treatment



Microneedling is also known as Collagen Induction Therapy. The treatment involves using very small, ultra-fine needles to create microscopic wounds in the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural wound healing response, stimulating the skin cells to produce collagen, elastin and other growth factors to improve the thickness and elasticity, texture, tone and overall appearance of the skin.

Improve Fine Lines, Wrinkles and Scarring

Your skin will look luminous after the initial healing has taken place. However, full results are noticed at between 4-6 weeks as the skin renews. The skin firming effects caused by tissue remodelling and new collagen formation have been proven to continue up to a year post-treatment. ​​

Frequently asked questions

1) What skin conditions/issues does Microneedling treat?

Microneedling improves skin firmness, radiance, skin texture and tone. It is a highly effective treatment for enlarged pores, lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, acne scarring, surgical scars and stretch marks, and results improve over time as new collagen develops. Microneedling is suitable for the face, neck, décolletage, hands and body.

2) Why ‘DR PEN M8’ Microneedling?

The DR Pen M8 is the newest pen on the market, micro-needling is a clinically proven, CE certified micro-needling device that uses an advanced micro-needle cartridge and disposable bio-sheath to eliminate the risk of cross-contamination. Each cartridge contains 16 – 36 of the highest quality, Japanese stainless-steel needles that are highly durable to ensure exceptionally precise, safe and effective treatments. The efficacy of the DR Pen M8 means that incredible results can be achieved with lower settings reducing the potential for adverse reactions caused by excessive post-procedure inflammation.

3) What happens during a Microneedling treatment?

Following a consultation where we will discuss the procedure in detail together with your treatment aims, an anaesthetic cream will be applied. The skin is then cleansed and a light peel is performed for optimum results from FILLMED then a thin layer of gel is applied to allow the Dr Pen to glide over the skin to prevent abrasion and friction. The needle depth is selected and treatment begins with a test pass to determine skin reaction and tolerance levels. The Pen is then moved across the skin, area by area, in vertical and horizontal movements to ensure every area is treated thoroughly. Treatment time is approximately 60 minutes.

4) Is it painful?

The procedure is usually well-tolerated as numbing cream is applied 30 minutes before the procedure.

5) How many Microneedling sessions are required for great results?

You will see an improvement in skin quality, texture and tone after just one treatment. However, for deeper lines, scarring, stretch-marks and pigmentation a course of 3-6 treatments will be recommended, one every 4-6 weeks.

6) What is the recovery time following Microneedling?

Make-up and skincare products should not be applied for 24-hours.

For the first few days after treatment your skin is likely to feel red, hot, stingy and tight, like sunburn. You may have some mild bruising and may also experience some swelling, particularly around the eye area.

The skin may flake or peel post-treatment. This is part of the skin rejuvenation process. Depending on the condition of the skin prior to treatment, this may be quite noticeable and last for around a week. It is important not to pick or peel the skin as this may cause scarring or pigmentation.

Pigmentation may darken post-treatment before showing improvement.

You may wish to schedule your treatment to coincide with a day or two away from work and social events. You will be given detailed aftercare advice following the procedure. It is important to follow the aftercare advice carefully to aid the wound healing process and to prevent any excessive inflammation post-procedure.

Vitamin B3 healing cream can be purchased if notified in advance.

A Cooling mask will be provided to aid the healing process.

I recently visited Steph ness aesthetics for a facial peel I have to say it was a fantastic experience. Having never had a facial like this before, Stephanie explained everything brilliantly I felt comfortable and confident in her skills. I also had a couple of calcium spots on my cheek, these had always had them and never been able to get rid of them. Steph was able to remove them with a quick painless way to say I am pleased with the outcome of both treatments I’ve had is an understatement and would highly recommend Stephanie.

As a busy mom of two that rarely has time for herself I thought it was about time I treated myself. I very rarely leave the house without makeup so I was very sceptical that anything was going to change that. After finding Steph on Facebook and seeing lots of lovely treatments and reviews I took the plunge to book a consultation. First impressions – what a beautiful little salon, Steph is so lovely and took the time to explain treatments and give her professional recommendations on what treatment to choose. I’m not quite ready for anything too invasive so chose to go with the Obagi face peel. Steph talked me through the whole process and explained the aftercare and results we would likely achieve. Fast forward 2 weeks and my skin is glowing. I’ve felt confident for the first time in forever walking out of the house without anything but moisturiser and some mascara on. During my follow up appointment today Steph made me feel amazing. I would 100% recommend Steph and if you’re feeling a bit apprehensive, book a consultation. You have nothing to lose. Steph is amazing at what she does. Thank you

Fabulous experience from start to finish. Steph’s professionalism is second to none, Steph took time to fully analyse my face and advise what would be the best treatment plan. The whole process made me feel very safe and secure and I won’t go anywhere else now.

Rachel Lunt

I’ve recently been in to see Steph in her clinic to have a facial peel. My skin has never looked better, Steph was so professional able to explain in detail the process and all the products that she used on my skin and what aftercare should be used. I found Steph really refreshing as she was not trying to sell me anything and was looking and what treatment was best for me. I would recommend her 100% and I’ll definitely be going back for more treatments.

Jodie Price

Steph really put me at ease when I visited for the first time today. Listened to what I wanted and advised what would work best. love my results already (lips and cheeks) even though understandably swollen. Really impressed all 3 ladies were lovely and made me feel very welcome. The salon was beautiful and spotlessly clean, I will 100% be returning.

Thank you Steph. xxxx

Can't recommend Steph enough. She's absolutely brilliant.

I have now been going for treatments with Steph for over a year now. I was very nervous in the beginning but Steph took the time to fully explain the treatments, her medical experience and knowledge certainly shines through and I feel totally comfortable and the results have been amazing. I will never go anywhere else!!

If only there were more than 5 stars! Treatments at Steph's beautiful clinic are an absolute luxury and a total pleasure. She is utterly professional and a dedicated perfectionist which is reflected in her practice. I will never trust anyone else with my skin. Steph has done wonders for my outward appearance and more importantly my self confidence. I cannot speak highly enough of NessAesthetics.
