Rediscover glowing skin

Microneedling at our skin clinic in Aylesbury & Hertfordshire is an advanced therapy that uses a precision-engineered hand-held device with tiny needles that gently micro-puncture the skin. This stimulates the skin’s natural healing response causing it to regenerate and repair as the holes close. All of this activity boosts the formation of new collagen and elastin for skin that looks and feels radiant and rejuvenated.*

Our expert team is highly experienced in using microneedling to help soften lines and wrinkles while plumping and firming skin. The treatment can also target sun-damaged skin, acne scars and stretch marks. Ultimately, we can develop a microneedling programme that fits your individual needs to treat specific concerns and promote smoother, brighter and healthier skin.*

  • Boosts collagen and elastin production*
  • Can target fine lines and wrinkles and dull skin*
  • Also beneficial for scarring and stretch marks*
  • Suitable for face and body*

A rich history in caring for skin

Micro-needling is a tried, tested and trusted means of skin rejuvenation. It can be particularly effective for treating all kinds of scarring on the face and body including acne scarring and stretch marks.

Its origins probably lie in Chinese acupuncture, with European dermatologists recording its use and benefits in the early 20th century. Techniques developed over time to treat scars, birthmarks and hyperpigmentation with a noted Canadian plastic surgeon realising that the improvement in scar tissue camouflaged with tattoos was due to the needles and not the pigment in the ink.

Today’s microneedling is highly advanced and has become a leading and renowned treatment that makes a real difference to many people’s lives. Our team is highly experienced in micro-needling to help you gain the results you’re looking to achieve.*

*Individual results may vary.

  1. What is microneedling?

    By creating minute micro-channels in the skin’s surface, micro-needling triggers the body’s healing response to encourage skin to repair and rejuvenate itself. This boosts collagen and elastin production which helps to restore radiance and glow while targeting scarring, fine lines and wrinkles and other skin concerns including sun damage.*

  2. What happens during treatment?

    After thoroughly cleansing your skin, we’ll use a topical anaesthetic (numbing cream) to help keep you comfortable throughout the treatment. We’ll then apply the micro-needling hand-held device to the treatment area.

  3. How long does the treatment take?

    This does depend on the treatment area but most clients are with us for 60 minutes. That gives us time for consultation and to answer any questions you might have.

  4. How long should results last?

    As micro-needling stimulates the skin’s natural processes, it can take up to 12 weeks to start seeing results. One of the amazing benefits of micro-needling is that collagen and elastin production continue over time for natural, long-lasting results.*

  5. What about downtime?

    There is very little downtime with micro-needling. Skin may be red and flushed immediately after the treatment and it might feel tight or sensitive. This should subside in 24 to 36 hours.

  6. Is micro-needling safe?

    Micro-needling is minimally invasive and our expert team is highly experienced and trained in this treatment.
