As we age and battle skin conditions, the natural architecture of our skin deteriorates. Collagen induction therapy, also known as microneedling, is a great way to address these signs of aging at the cellular level as well as being clinically proven to reduce pigmentation, scarring, stretch marks and large pores.
Treatment time is about an hour (inc 20-30 minutes for a numbing cream to take effect) and spaced atleast 6 weeks apart. 3-4 treatments are required for best results and up to 6 treatments for more severe scarring and stretch marks. For anti-aging 1-2 treatments a year.

Post-treatment care is also crucial in preventing potential side effects.
While microneedling is considered safe for most skin types and carries fewer risks than more invasive procedures, it's essential you are aware of the possible side effects before deciding on the treatment.
The most common side effects of SkinPen microneedling are minor and temporary. Immediately after the treatment, you may experience redness, swelling, and a sensation similar to a sunburn. These effects are normal and usually subside within a few days after the procedure. Your skin may also feel dry or tight, and there may be some peeling as the skin begins to heal and rejuvenate itself.
Some people might experience slight bleeding during the microneedling procedure. This is generally minimal and is a part of the process, given that the treatment involves creating micro-injuries in the skin to stimulate collagen production. Any bleeding typically stops almost immediately after the treatment. If this happens you may experience small pin-prick blood spots which will disapear within a few days.
Less common side effects include breakouts, bruising, infection, and pigment changes. Bruising is relatively rare and usually occurs only if the treatment is done at a deeper depth or if the individual has a predisposition to bruising. Infections are also rare, as the SkinPen device is designed with safety in mind, using disposable, single-use needle cartridges to ensure a sterile procedure.
In some cases, changes in skin pigmentation can occur after microneedling. This risk is higher in individuals with darker skin tones or those who have a history of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
You must undergo a thorough consultation prior to microneedling as not everyone is suitable.
