Micro-needling treatments at the Cooden Clinic
We’re delighted to announce that our aesthetic nurse practitioner Amanda Combes has recently qualified to carry out micro-needling treatments. Micro-needling is a minimally invasive aesthetic procedure to help rejuvenate the skin and is usually carried out on the face to treat a range of problems including:
- Acne scarring
- Enlarged pores
- Uneven texture and tone
The treatment is carried out by a qualified medical professional using very fine needles to apply tiny pinpricks to the skin, so small that they are invisible to the naked eye. The needling stimulates the skin to produce new collagen-rich tissue, improving the appearance and texture of your complexion.
Before the procedure, Amanda will carry out a full consultation with you, including a facial assessment. She will then discuss a treatment plan with you to achieve your desired results.
Treatment time is normally around an hour but you may need more than one session for the best results. Amanda will talk about whether you need an anaesthetic cream before she starts the treatment to minimise any slight discomfort. You may have a bit of irritation or redness immediately afterwards but this will not last long and you will notice the results within a couple of weeks.
We use the Dermaroller and Dermapen micro-needling treatments at the Cooden Clinic, which you can read more about here.
