Smoother, brighter, younger, healthier looking skin.
Professional skin-needling has been established to be a clinically effective procedure that can have remarkable results in significantly improving the appearance of your skin. It can help improve acne scars, sun-damaged and ageing skin as well as reducing facial and décolleté lines, wrinkles and stretch marks.
At Temple Clinic we use 2 types of skin needling systems:
- EDS Rejuvenation
- ENDYMED™ INTENSIF
Want to know how to ensure that your skin is the best it can be? We recommend coming in for a Skin Vitality Consultation with Dr Sam Robson, our new in-depth skin health assessment. We also offer an express 30-minute Skin Assessment. Either of these can be added on when making your appointment. Find out more below!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
FNS is a special microneedling pen type device that contains sterile microneedles. Your therapist will use bespoke skincare products selected for your skin.
The effect of the microneedling is to make tiny little channels through the surface of the skin. This pierces the skin barrier for a short period of time and allows deep penetration of any products immediately applied to the skin. The microneedling, in causing tiny injuries to the skin surface, encourages the skin’s innate ability to repair itself. This stimulates collagen production which improves the texture of the skin, helps to repair scars and stretch marks and will also result in firmer, tighter skin.
Endymed Intensif uses radiofrequency at the same time as the needling. Each time the needle pierces the skin, a controlled burst of radiofrequency is sent to the collagen producing cells. This encourages more collagen stimulation deeper within the tissues resulting in a much more intense treatment and more impressive results.
WHAT HAPPENS AT MY APPOINTMENT?
You will be in the clinic for around 1-hour 45-mins. First, your skin is thoroughly cleansed and photos taken, these are kept as part of your progress record. Numbing cream will then be applied to the skin, taking about 30-minutes to achieve maximum benefit. The treatment itself takes around 30-minutes and is followed by an Omnilux light therapy session. This accelerates the healing process and reduces your downtime. Appropriate skincare will be applied following the treatment and aftercare advice will be given.
In addition, we recommend Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy to our needling treatments. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is the revolutionary rejuvenation procedure using your body’s own healing resources. It is a completely safe and natural treatment that is highly effective in improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, stretchmarks and scars. As well as improving the skin tone, the treatment also promotes healthy skin growth and collagen production resulting in skin appearing plumper and more vibrant. Adding PRP to any needling treatment will reduce the downtime of the treatment.
IS SKIN NEEDLING PAINFUL?
Before your treatment your skin will be numbed using a topical anaesthetic (numbing cream) to ensure you remain comfortable throughout.
HOW LONG IS THE RECOVERY TIME?
Immediately after your needling treatment, you may look as though you have mild sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This will start to subside over the next 2-3 hours and will normally recover within 24-hours. Typically most people have only slight redness the following day. The Omnilux light therapy can significantly reduce the redness. Occasionally the redness can persist for 3-7 days. We suggest avoiding make up for at least 24-hours and we shall provide you with appropriate skincare products to use which will help with effective healing. Mineral make up can be worn.
DO I NEED A COURSE OF TREATMENTS?
We recommend a course of treatments depending on the skin concern being treated, but we usually recommend a course of at least three treatments approximately 4-6 weeks apart. We suggest maintenance treatments every 6-12 months to optimise the benefits of your course.
HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS LAST?
Results can last for up to 18 months depending on your skin and the skin concern that is being treated. we recommend maintenance treatments every 6-12 months to maintain the benefits of your course.
