What is Microneedling/Dermaroller?
Microneedling is a medical device to produce thousands of micro-medical needle-columns in the skin. Each column will penetrate into the dermis of the skin and will be approximately 0.5mm in width. The column will close rapidly enabling the skin to recover quickly – often in the same day.
After a Microneedling procedure your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, working below the surface in the dermis. This takes time as new collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced. It can take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair are seen and the process will continue over the following months, providing you with a natural and long lasting enhancement.
The Digital Microneedling pen is a revolutionary device which has the amazing ability to naturally stimulate collagen and elastin production in the skin without damaging it. It can be used by both men and women and has numerous beneficial effects:
Scar Removal – including acne scar removal
Stretch Mark Removal
Cellulite Treatment / Cellulite Reduction
Hyper Pigmentation Treatment
How Does The Treatment Work?
The skin is like a photocopier and copies the damage that is left behind from trauma such as acne marks/scars/stretchmarks. Dermaroller is a way of reprogramming the skin and changing the structure so it will repair the damage.
The treatment uses a digital microneedling pen covered with micro-scopic needles that has a back and forth movement (looks like vibrations) over the area in different directions. The tiny needles pierce the skin causing a pin-prick bleeding and mild inflammation, breaking the connections around the scarring, allowing the new blood cells to repair any damage causing the scar to flatten and reduce as the skin naturally renews.
This mild trauma also stimulates the collagen and elastin in the skin promoting the production of new skin cells which will help to strengthen, plump and tighten the skin. This helps to refine fine lines and wrinkles, and improve the overall complexion of the skin. Therefore the treatment is suitable for all skin types.
As the treatment stimulates the natural cell turnover, we recommend a 4-6 week gap between treatments, for the best results you would need a course of 6 Microneedling sessions.

High frequency facial
A high frequency facial is a facial treatment which uses electrical currents to stimulate the production of oxygen in the skin. High frequency facials are often used to help treat acne and wrinkles.
Using a high frequency machine on the surface of the skin, whether on the face or body, creates a buzzing noise as the electrical current passes through. A subtle glow is also created in the glass electrode you’ll notice illuminating a cool blue/violet light, or a warm red/orange.
The production of enriched oxygen molecules during the treatment creates and warms your thermal tissue and acts as an anti-bacterial promoting natural cleansing. This natural anti-bacterial makes high-frequency facials ideal for those struggling with acne-prone skin. Toxins are pushed away by the “natural” warming as skin becomes enriched with volume, hydration, and nutrients. The skin’s collagen and elastin will then be improved with the increase in the blood’s circulation, as well as your skin’s cell renewal.
When getting a high-frequency facial, you’ll be getting between a 60,000 to 200,000-hertz frequency alternating current. Although it may sound a bit intimidating, and maybe a little scary, this is a pain-free, safe treatment when done correctly by a trained professional. The treatment may either place electrodes onto the skin, or there may be a gap left between both the skin and the electrode.
Here is a list of 8 benefits high frequency facials are good for:
Enlarged Pores Are Shrunken
Treats and Prevents Acne
Reduces The Appearance of Puffy Eyes
Minimizes The Look of Fine Lines And Wrinkles
Dark Eye Circles Are Gradually Faded
Reduces The Amount of Sebum Production
Diminishes Acne Scarring
