& Skin Peel Packages
Combining microneedling with skin peels is a match made in heaven!
Directly targeting the skins' renewal mechanisms through stimulation of collagen and elastin production with microneedling, will provide a long lasting effect below the surface of the skin; while AHA and retinol peels help to resurface and refine the existing epidermis allowing the new, vibrant skin cells to be revealed.
Since we can only safely perform, microneedling and/or skin peels every 3-4 weeks to allow for proper healing I would suggest we alternate microneedling and skin peels.
For example: Month 1; microneedling. Month 2; AHA skin peel. Month 3; microneedling. Month 4; retinol peel and so on.
This approach allows for maximal healing in between needling and peeling sessions and gives the skins regeneration processes time to stabilise between sessions.
Microneedling and skin peels work with the skin to generate new collagen and elastin naturally. The ultimate effects of microneedling will appear at their best between 2 and 3 months after the final treatment... before the process gradually begins to slow down again.
Therefore I recommend maintenance treatments of microneedling 2-3 times per year to maintain the desired result. Regular peels will keep your skin looking its absolute best, and daily use of targeted skin care products which I can tailor to you, will support the salon treatments.

WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING & HOW DOES IT WORK?
Microneedling is a procedure that uses small needles to prick the skin with a pen-like device. The purpose of treatment is to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin. Microneedling is mostly used on the face and may treat various scars, wrinkles, and large pores, but can be used on the scalp to treat hair loss, scar tissue from tattoos that have been removed with lasers, cellulite or stretch marks.
IS MICRONEEDLING SAFE? I'M A LITTLE SCARED!
Yes. Despite what I have written above about the potential warning and dangers, as long as you choose your therapist correctly, you will not have these issues. The problem arises when you choose to pay £30-£50 for a microneedling session to try and save money, but what you don't realise is that these therapists offering microneedling at such low prices just don't have any real idea of the potential dangers they can cause by improper techniques with little knowledge about the skin and how it functions and works as a whole.
Without this knowledge they risk causing real damage to the skin not yielding the results possible. They will take on clients unsuitable for microneedling and not recognise when a client is experiencing PIH for example or similar allergic reactions.
Choose wisely, and you will be in safe hands.
WHAT CONDITIONS DOES MICRONEEDLING TREAT?
Microneedling is a fantastic treatment which can help with a myriad of conditions including, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, sagging skin, cellulite on legs or stomach, stretch marks and scalp hair loss!
WHAT WILL I LOOK LIKE AFTER THE TREATMENT?
This will vary from person to person and alo the depth I have chosen to go in at, but most people will notice a little redness and possible mild swelling similar to slight sunburn for 24-48 hours and there may be slight pinpoint bleeding. Skin will be noticeably smoother and more radiant within a week or two. Full results will take a few months to appear.
IS MICRONEEDLING PAINFUL?
Most clients do not have the need for numbing cream and using it can affect the results and cause possible further issues.
I generally needle at depths from 0.25mm to 1.5mm (medical needling), so it should be more than tolerable for the most part.
WHY CAN'T I JUST HAVE ONE SESSION?
One session isn't enough to yield the results you might be after. If you have wrinkles, acne skin, or skin that is generally not smooth, then one session will not be sufficient for the matrix of the fibroids to regenerate and fully heal as required. As with skin peels, it has been clinically proven that at least 4 sessions minimum is required for optimum results.
WHICH TREATMENT IS RIGHT FOR ME - MICRONEEDLING, SKIN PEELS OR BOTH?
Both! Microneedling and skin peels yield similar end results, but each one achieves this in a uniquely different way.
Microneedling rebuilds the skins structure by repairing damage caused by acne scarring, UV exposure, fine lines and wrinkles, melasma (brown spots) premature ageing etc and skin peels renew, regenerate & invigorate the skin in a more preventative manor.
Think of it as; microneedling repairing the past and skin peels preparing for the future. Therefore, both methods work synergistically to drastically improve the skin.
The AHA peels and Retinol peels also work fantastically when alternated, as the AHA peels work more on the surface of the skin, whereas the retinol peels work beneath the skin.
