Your first appointment with us will be a consultation which is free.
You will be seen by a registered nurse who will take a brief medical history and fully explain the procedure to you.
This is to allow time for skin priming which ideally should commence at least 2 weeks before your first treatment.
Skin priming ensures the best results from skin needling.
The use of stable anti-oxidants in the form of vitamin C and vitamin A serums in the weeks before skin needling, helps“jump-start” the process of collagen production, accelerating the benefits of the treatment and reducing healing time.
The serums are to be applied daily in the morning and in the evening.
You should continue with your usual cleansing, moisturising and sun protection routine.
As your skin needling practitioner we will give you full advice on the products suitable for your skin type.
