Microneedling is a non-surgical treatment with a range of applications. It is particularly popular for tightening the skin following weight loss, healing scars and stretchmarks and and rejuvenating the skin. It uses fine needles to cause micro-traumas that activate the body’s skin-healing protein, collagen which plumps and lifts the skin.
Microneedling treatments can be an effective alternative to more invasive cosmetic surgery, producing fast and impressive results in a procedure that requires little or no downtime. These versatile treatments can be used to tighten sagging skin and heal stretchmarks and scars on many parts of your body, most popularly the arms, chest, stomach and thighs. If you’ve recently lost weight, microneedling treatments can help tighten any loose skin.
After talking through your medical history with you, your EF MEDISPA Treatment Coordinator will advise which microneedling treatment is suited to you.
There may be a little discomfort when treating deeper scarring, but we can apply an anaesthetic numbing cream for your comfort where necessary.
You will see instant results with some treatments. Others take a week to ten days to reach their maximum effect.
We usually recommend a course of four to six microneedling treatments for best results, but the exact number will depend on your treatment and skin.
