Rejuvenate the skin and get smoother, firmer texture with microneedling, perfect for treating scarring, uneven skin tone and dull, lifeless skin as well as cellulite and stretch marks.
What does microneedling do?
Microneedling is a method of skin rejuvenation that induces collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production in your skin to give a smoother and firmer appearance. It can help with scarring, uneven skin tone, fine lines, wrinkles, dull and lifeless skin and open pores.
What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a series of 1000's of very small, directed needles inserted into the skin. They cause what is known as "micro-injury" to your skin, stimulating it's natural healing response. This forces the skin to produce more collagen and elastin and begin remodelling any scars you may have, improving the overall quality, tone and texture of your skin.
At Alpha Aesthetics, we use an electronic pen to perform our microneedling as it provides superior results when compared to a roller. We apply mesotherapy onto the skin and use the device over the top to allow for the mesotherapy to effectively penetrate the skin.
Topical anaesthetic can be given for a comfortable treatment and the depth of the needle insertion can be adjusted throughout, dependent on the area and skin condition.
What does microneedling include?
Here at Alpha Aesthetics, our microneedling treatment is one of our flagship treatments. We do not just provide microneedling, we provide a package - starting with an instant, painless enzyme peel to gentle exfoliate the skin to allow better penetration of our medical grade products. Each microneedling treatment includes a bespoke mesotherapy cocktail of vitamins, enzymes, hyaluronic acids and plant extracts which is applied during the procedure to maximise results. These can be tailored to suit your individual concerns.
Post procedure, we then apply a relaxing bespoke mask for 15 minutes to reduce clinical downtime and then give you a post procedure pack to take home to use for 72 hours after your treatment.
How much is microneedling?
£150 per treatment
£400 for a course of three treatments (Packages paid in full)
£750 for a course of six treatments (packages paid in full)
When should I start to see results?
Results can be seen soon after just one treatment, and will continue to appear gradually over the following months, with three or more treatments recommended to achieve the best results. Initially there will be some redness that can vary from a light blush to a deeper pink - almost like a sun burn - but this will settle within 2 to 3 days.
How long does microneedling last and how often should I get it done?
Results on scarring are permanent and it is recommended to have maintenance treatments once every 6 months.
How do I take care of my skin after microneedling?
Alpha Aesthetics will prepare a post-procedure pack for you to take home and use for the next 72 hours - your clinician will walk you through exactly what to do! Skin will be red and may feel tight and stingy for the first few hours, so make sure to avoid extreme temperatures and vigorous exercise for the first 12 hours.
In the following week, skin may feel tight and dry. Make sure to use sunscreen daily.
Microneedling for the body:
Microneedling can also provide incredible results for those looking to treat stretch marks, cellulite and the appearance of the skin around their necks. The process of microneedling has been shown to fade the appearance of scarring - like stretch marks - by stimulating the collagen in the skin, breaking up the stringy fibers that make up scar tissue.
