Microneedling in London
Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure to treat skin concerns via natural collagen production. Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling causes controlled epidermal micro-injuries that trigger your body’s natural wound healing process. While minimising cellular damage, this process stimulates natural collagen production, resulting in new youthful skin cells.
Collagen (Glue in Greek)
The majority of changes in your skin caused by ageing happens in the dermis, which loses 20-80% of its thickness with age. Starting in your mid-20’s, natural collagen production starts to decline by about 1.7% each year and is not replenished. Once you reach the age of 40, the effects of collagen loss become more visible when you may have lost 40% of your natural collagen.
There are three phases to the wound-repair process:
- Phase I: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.
- Phase II: Proliferation. The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
- Phase III: Remodeling. The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.
Results have shown effective improvement in skin texture, skin tightening, acne, lightening hyper-pigmented skin, reducing scar tissues, fine lines and wrinkles, thus revealing a fresher, younger, and more healthy looking skin.
SkinPen works. Ninety percent of subjects in the clinical trial would recommend the procedure to family and friends.1
What are the benefits of our Skinpen Microneedling Treatment?
If you are suffering from acne, acne scarring, pitted skin, dehydration, dull complexion, photo-damaged skin, fine lines and wrinkles, then microneedling will work for you. For long-term benefits and depending on the condition of your skin, we would recommend a course of three to six treatments.
IS SKINPEN MICRONEEDLING PAINFUL?
A Microneedling treatment is a minimally invasive treatment. Based on your needs, your physician will likely apply a topical numbing agent to the treatment area. Most patients report feeling only the slight vibration of SkinPen during the procedure.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE THE TREATMENT?
Your physician may recommend a course of procedures based on your individual goals. Maintenance of your procedure might require multiple treatments. We would recommend a course of three to six treatments for optimum results
IS IT SAFE TO COMBINE MICRONEEDLING WITH OTHER SKIN TREATMENTS?
Absolutely. At Skinlogica our professional practitioner will guide you through the ins and outs of this treatment and will advise you on what other treatments you can carry out so you don’t cause any damage to your skin.
WHAT WILL MY SKIN LOOK LIKE AFTER A MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT?
The skin will appear slightly pink to red immediately post-procedure, similar to a mild to moderate sunburn. Additionally, the most common treatment responses experienced were dryness, rough skin, tightness, redness, itching, peeling, discomfort, tenderness, and burning. These conditions resolve over a 36 hour period without any further complications.
I had hardly any eyebrows, mostly from overzealous threading and ageing. I decided to get the semi-permanent eyebrows done by Nisha. At my consultation, we discussed shape and thickness, I needed a thicker brow according to my face shape. The pain was bearable. Peeling did occur but that was part of the process and I was informed about this by Nisha at the consultation. Now my eyebrows look great and have thrown out all my pencils etc. They look so good and 100% better than pencils which give a more made up look. Now I just put my makeup and there’s no need to even touch up my eyebrows. They look very natural and I have received many compliments about them. Thanks Nisha for my perfect eyebrows and giving me my confidence back! Can’t stop looking at them in the mirror. Definitely would recommend!
I used this place only once and I'm thinking of going again. I cant say anything about laser removal however I'm pleased with the owner who due to an error on wahanda (I paid silly price) honored the deal. She could have refused to treat me. Thats how you run business. Well done
I thought about laser hair removal for years, I told myself it was something I would get done when I had some spare cash. After a making up yet another excuse of why I couldn't join my daughter and other half to go swimming (the real reason being I was in between wax apts), I thought enough is enough and unwanted hair was not just an inconvenience but effecting my quality of life. I' ve had two laser treatments and the results are amazing. It sounds dramatic to say but it's changed my life through changing the way i see my body. I feel liberated to be able to say yes to going swimming or wearing shorts in the gym whenever I like. So in short my advice would be don't put it off! As is evident from all the reviews, Nesha a delightful clinician that puts you at ease. It's clear from her professional demeanor she's highly skilled and experienced.
I had semi permanent eyebrows done by the lovely Nisha. She was so nice and professional, she explained to me every details what was going to be done and keep asking me every steps of the procedure if I'm happy so far. All I can say I highly recommended this place!
Great treatment with some added pampering! I've had laser facials before at other clinics and they have always felt like more like a procedure than an actual treatment....normally a quick cleanse and prep of thes skin, a blast of the laser, some SPF cream applied and your on yor way. With Nisha, her 30minute laser facial is very much a 'treat'-ment from start to finish. Nisha clearly knows her stuff and is very personable, talking you through each stage of the facial. After the laser, Nisha applies a series of serums and masks which she massages into the skin. The facial massage is very relaxing and is great pamepring element of the treatment...I only wish that it lasted longer! Since my first treatment I have now booked a course of 8 and always look forward to my next treatment. Since having the facials I have noticed that my skin appears firmer, plumper and surface blemishes have faded. The Skinlogica clinic is a lovely environment....modern, very clean and always smells amazing! The aromatherapy vapours relax you from the moment you enter :)
I only booked in for a consultation with Nisha. What I can say is that she is a professional and lovely lady. she recommended that I did not really need any treatment and that is a great sign of someone that is not trying to just take your money.
From the get go Nisha has made me feel very welcome and comfortable, she is very professional and the treatments that I'm getting have really changed my life!! I would recommend Skinlogica to everyone I know. The place is clean and had a real good feel when you walk in. There is parking, bus stops and tube station in walking distance to get there.
Highly recommend this salon. Nisha is lovely, makes you feel really comfortable and gives you honest advice. I have personally found the skin rejuvenation facials incredible for my skin - so great in fact that I've got my sister and mum hooked too!
I would definitely recommend skinlogica to all my friends and families. The owner (Nisha) is very helpful, kind and always gives clear advice on my treatments and aftercare. We also are able to contact her, after hours, for any questions if unsure about our treatments. I definitely like how she introduces me to any new products and takes our feedback into consideration. Thankyou Nisha.
