Where can I have microneedling?
It is safe to have medical microneedling anywhere on the body where you seek improvements to skin quality, tone and texture. The most popular areas for anti-ageing are the face, neck and hands. Acne treatments for closed acne scars are often to the face and back. Stretch marks and scar correction can be anywhere on the body.
At what age should I start microneedling?
You will see a benefit from your mid-twenties onwards. People in their mid-20s – early 30s typically needing fewer treatments in a year (every 6 months). People in their late 30s – 40s onwards will usually benefit from more regular sessions (every 3-4 months).
Does it hurt to have microneedling?
Here at Rejuvenate, we put your comfort first, investing in equipment that ensures you are at ease throughout all treatments. By using automated microneedling devices, we dramatically reduce any discomfort. As such no topical anaesthetics are needed with most patients likening it to someone running a fingertip over their skin.
How many sessions will I need before I see a difference?
We use a combination of specialised serums and medical grade microneedling to the correct depth to rejuvenate your skin. As such we often fast track the result, getting subtle improvements within 1-2 sessions. For deeper scars and fine lines, it will typically take 3-6 courses for peak results.
It takes 40 days for new skin cells to migrate from the basal layer to the surface layer – it’s this natural process that we are encouraging that creates the delay between treatment and results.
