Micro-needling

Micro-needling is a treatment that gently creates micro-punctures and channels in the skin to trigger the body’s natural healing response which includes the production of new collagen and elastin. This remodelling helps to soften lines and wrinkles, treat sun-damaged skin, uneven pigmentation, acne scars and stretch marks.*

The treatment should be carried out by a medical professional. Our specialist Consultant Dermatologist and aesthetic practitioner use Dermapen™ for micro-needling as it is able to deliver treatment at a more controlled depth (effectively targeting the dermis) than traditional dermarollers. This makes the procedure more comfortable with less downtime.

Widely recognised as the gold standard in micro-needling technology, Dermapen™ works by stimulating the skin to produce new collagen and elastin for a tightening, lifting and rejuvenating effect.* It’s a natural and safe way to help skin repair and regenerate itself for smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin.* At Lumiere Clinic, this revolutionary treatment plays a key role in our full-face, systematic approach to facial rejuvenation.

Your questions answered

on micro-needling at Lumiere Clinic

  1. What is micro-needling?

    This advanced anti-ageing treatment makes micro-punctures in the skin through a hand-held medical device with tiny needles. The micro-punctures (or channels) trigger a healing response, part of which involves the production of new collagen and elastin. These proteins help build and maintain healthy skin. They also help to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, target pigmentation and sun-damaged skin and treat acne scars and stretch marks.*

    At Lumiere Clinic, we use Dermapen™ as it delivers treatment at a more controlled depth than other therapies (including traditional dermarollers). This reduces downtime and increases comfort.

  2. How long does the treatment take?

    This varies depending on the treatment area but plan to be with us for 30 to 60 minutes.*

  3. When should I see results?

    It usually takes around 6 weeks to see initial results. Collagen and elastin will continue to be produced after the treatment meaning that results will build over time and be longer lasting. *

  4. How many treatments will I need?

    This will depend on your individual needs. Our Dermatologist and qualified practitioners will discuss this in detail during your consultation. Many of our patients have treatment courses of 3 to 6 micro-needling sessions.

  5. Is the treatment painful?

    We use a topical anaesthetic cream to minimise discomfort before treatment begins. Dermapen™ is more comfortable than traditional dermaroller treatments.

  6. Are there any side effects?

    Patients may experience skin redness and flushing, mild skin tightness and sensitivity immediately after treatment. There may be mild peeling the following day.*

What our patients say

“I had the Dermapen™ treatment for acne scars across my cheeks and forehead. It’s made a real difference and I don’t need to cover up with foundation and concealer any longer. The team at Lumiere were great and it was really helpful when the dermatologist went through all the options with me.”
