Refresh and rejuvenate with skin needling
At Aesthetics Lab, we believe in our team, expertise and advanced technology and when it comes to tackling the signs of ageing. We work hard to bring innovative treatments to our clients that really make the difference – and skin needling is a great example.
Also known as micro-needling, the treatment uses a hand-held device with tiny needles that gently micro-punctures the skin to help improve lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, age spots and scarring (both face and body). The tiny punctures stimulate your body to produce collagen and elastin which plumps and firms your skin and makes it feel healthier and smoother.
Incredibly, your skin actually begins to repair and rejuvenate itself. There’s next to no downtime, it’s minimally invasive and results can be long lasting. Your Aesthetician can advise on a serum that’s right for you and apply it during your treatment. Working deeper within your skin, you should see even better results. And just as importantly, the treatment is precise and tailored to you as the micro-needling technology can be adjusted to work at the right depth for your skin.
Skin needling for hair loss
Skin needling has been found to stimulate hair growth. We use it to help treat thinning hair, hair loss, hardening of the scalp and weak hair. We apply AQ Advance Hair Complex to the scalp before skin needling to nourish and repair hair follicles to promote normal, healthy hair growth. It can also stimulate hair follicle generation encouraging new hairs to grow. (We also offer mesotherapy to treat hair loss – find out more here.)
Boost collagen with our unique treatment
Try the ALab Collagen Boost Treatment with skin needling for a younger, fresher look.
We’ve combined the very best of our leading treatments and technologies into one exclusive experience. As soon as you arrive, we’ll offer you a shot of Skinade to get things underway. This multi award-winning collagen drink contains active ingredients to help boost your body’s natural production of collagen and hyaluronic acid. Individual results may vary.
Next is a Blueberry Smoothie Peel. This ground breaking treatment is part chemical peel and part exfoliator. It exfoliates to a level similar to microdermabrasion but in a much more advanced way. By changing the dynamic of your skin, it helps improve the absorption and strength of the active ingredients contained in the formulation. Ideal for both men and women, young and mature skin and fair or darker skin tones, expect brighter, glowing skin.
Then we move on to skin needling. Using an advanced device to create microscopic ‘pin-prick’ wounds in the skin, the body’s natural healing process is stimulated to boost collagen production. Targeting fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation or acne scarring, increased collagen levels can also firm your skin while adding volume for a more youthful look. Texture should look and feel much smoother too.
Our final step is Healite LED Therapy, a unique and award-winning light therapy that uses the latest photo-sequencing technology to rejuvenate skin, treat acne and provide pain relief. Using light therapy to make cells receptive to red light, the red light penetrates deeper into the dermis increasing blood flow and stimulating collagen production. Completely pain free, it’s a wonderful way to relax at the end of this fantastic treatment.
Your treatment step by step
Skin Needling Consultation
During your consultation with one of our highly-experienced Aestheticians, we will find out more about your concerns and goals and talk through the treatment in detail. We will go through your medical history and skincare routine and analyse the concerns you’re looking to treat in order to prepare a suitable treatment plan.
Your consultation is a good opportunity to ask any questions you might have – we’ll always answer openly and honestly.
Skin Needling Treatment
At your first appointment, we’ll take photos of the area to be treated for your medical records and to help us chart your treatment progress.
We’ll begin by thoroughly cleansing your skin and may apply an anaesthetic cream depending on the type of skin needling treatment and area treated. The treatment will then begin. We use a device with a single-use head featuring a number of micro-needles to create small punctures in the skin for collage induction. We may also use serums with active ingredients to further enhance the results.
After Skin Needling Treatment
Your skin may feel warm straight after the treatment, which will pass within half an hour. It is quite normal for the skin to appear red after the treatment; the redness will subside within couple of hours. You may still be able to notice little puncture wounds the following day but these can be easily covered with make-up.
