Microneedling has recently taken over as the hottest new trend in skincare. Made popular by Kim Kardashian with her "Vampire Facial", Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pit. Because it’s minimally invasive with only 3 days down time. It works wonders in improving skin tone and texture. By increasing cell turnover and reversing the signs of aging.
What you need to know about Microneedling is that NOT ALL DEVICES ARE CREATED EQUAL!.
There are 2 main Microneedling devices: rollers & pens.
Dermarollers: These devices do not penetrate the skin in a neat way and can cause damage to the surrounding tissue. They can trigger the wrong type of collagen production in the skin and cause skin problems. Many people are drawn to using this device at home for their "value" which is a mistake as these needles are often poor quality.
SkinPen: The SkinPen creates a whopping 98000 micro-channels per minute giving you the most effective collagen induction therapy treatment on the market today!!!. It is also Health Canada Validated to treat melasma, scars, stretchmarks, and the overall tone/ texture and health of your skin.

With the recent news that DermaPen microneedling has been banned across the UK due to risk of infection, you can rest assured that at Elaine's Medical Aesthetics, we only use the finest in quality and with always your safety in mind.
