Collagen Revival Microneedling

Key benefits

  • Reduces the appearance of acne scarring and scarring.
  • Stimulates circulation, collagen and elastin production
  • Can be used on all areas of the body and face, including fragile skin around the eyes, mouth, neck and décolleté.
How it works:

Microneedling is a fantastic treatment that creates microscopic punctures intended to stimulate skin’s natural collagen (CIT) and elastin production. It triggers a healing response from the body, helping to rejuvenate the skin whilst preserving epidermal integrity.

 

 

What to expect:

At Norwich Face and Body Clinic, we offer two styles of microneedling, both of which are performed using one of our medical motorised needling devices.

NANONEEDLING & MICRONEEDLING

Nanoneedles and microneedles create micro-channels in the skin using one of our devices that use oscillating motion. They both induce cellular turnover and regulation and provoke the healing process (to varying degrees) that results in skin rejuvenation. The main difference between the two is the depth that the needles can penetrate the skin. Nanoneedles only punctures the epidermis treating the upper 0.15mm of the skin, while microneedles can be adjusted to different depths, from the epidermis to the dermis. These adjustable perimeters allow our therapists to adjust the depth and speed to treat various skin conditions and Fitzpatrick skin types. The micro-injuries caused by microneedles stimulate the body’s natural healing process, increasing collagen and elastin production to promote skin rejuvenation and increase absorption of products through the skin. This procedure can also be effective for skin laxity or sagging, thinning skin, wrinkles, UV damage, hyperpigmentation, acne, scars and stretch marks.

Nanoneedles are made of silicone hair-like cones instead of needles that separate the cells within the epidermis’s top layer to allow enhanced penetration of products. Creating these micro-channels in the skin increases product absorption by 97% and encourages your body to rejuvenate itself. This serum infusion treatment benefits include pigmentation reduction, increased cell turnover, skin rejuvenation, and an immediate glow.

This facial includes the application of a high strength skin-boosting serum. This booster is a mixture of five different Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA), antioxidants and growth factors, with an auto-neutralising release that is fantastic for skin rejuvenation, acne prevention, treatment of photo-ageing, fighting free radicals damages and most importantly, supporting the skin’s barrier. Lastly, the advanced finishes with our clinically proven LED Phototherapy. The skin absorbs the LED light, which energises the fibroblast cell in the dermis; the cells become energised, produce collagen, increase elasticity, and accelerate healing. The LED light uses different wavelengths, which work on different mechanisms within the cells.
Our facial treatments use products that are developed using the highest quality medical-grade ingredients created by world-class dermatologists. We continuously update our skills and knowledge to ensure we continue to provide the best possible service.

FAQ's


Norwich Microneedling is charged between £65-£119. We offer an express and advanced version of this Microneedling facial.
Results depend on individuals concerns, skin condition, wellbeing and use of skincare products. These factors have great effects on the healing of the skin. Full details will be discussed at a skin therapy consultation.
Some areas may be more sensitive than others, we can offer a topical anaesthetic in this case.
Unfortunately, Microneedling is not possible during pregnancy or breastfeeding.
This would depend on the medication. If the skin specialist has any concerns regarding a clients health or medication, GP consent will be requested.
Microneedling can be repeated every 4-6 weeks.
We adjust the settings and tailor the treatment to any of our client's specific needs and comfort levels. For more targeted treatments, a topical anaesthetic is applied so we can perforate the skin at a lower depth, for optimum results.
With all our treatments, we can apply a cooling and deep hydration mask to de-sensitise the skin post-treatment. Depending on the treatment and the needles' depth, some people will experience redness and mild swelling (similar to a mild sunburn) for 24-48 hours. There may also be minimal pin-point bleeding or bruising. Within 1 week, you will notice that your skin is smoother and more radiant looking. The full effects will be visible a few weeks after treatment.
For clients with acne scarring or deeper wrinkle treatments, we recommend that no make-up or other products are used on the skin for 24-48 hours until the skin has returned to its normal state. From then, clients can start applying their recommended SPF moisturiser and normal products. At 3-5 days post-treatment, clients may notice that the skin starts to shed due to the increased turnover of new skin cells; we advise using a gentle, light exfoliator to remove the dead skin. Then, 5-7 days post-treatment, you will see beautiful, new, radiant skin. We recommend that clients not sunbathe for 2 weeks pre and post-treatment and continue to use an SPF on their skin throughout the year.
