What will it involve?
For optimum skin improvement M-Pen Micro-needling is best taken after an exfoliation treatment such as a Fresh Up or an Acid Skin Peel to lift layers of unwanted dead skin cells’ improving the surface of the skin. The M-Pen Micro-needle treatment will repair the deeper layers of the skin’s structures.
Your skin care practitioner will complete a detailed consultation to establish your skin type, condition, and your skin care improvement goals, all of which will determine the most suitable exfoliation treatment, pharmaceutical active ingredients and planning to suit your skin.
Commencing a pre-exfoliation treatment, or simply a cleanse if you opt out of the pre exfoliation treatment, the M-Pen Micro-needling is applied along with the application of the pharmaceutical active ingredients.
The M-Pen Micro-needling selectively targets dermal structures, whereby it can be ‘tricked’ into producing new collagen in response to the perceived injury whilst the cocktail of pharmaceutical active ingredients are absorbed into the skin via the thousands of epidermal micro-canals.
This process instantly increases cellular regeneration, improving tired, dull, dehydrated skin, fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, open pores and acne scars, leaving the skin feeling instantly rejuvenated, plumped, smoother, fresh and glowing.
The body treatments reduce the toxic build up, reducing fluid retention, cellulite and localised fat.

Does it hurt?
Each individual has varied pain threshold to the needling action. Care is taken to make it as comfortable as possible. An anesthetic cream may be applied where applicable.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
A single treatment will provide an instant skin rejuvenation effect; a course of treatments would be advised for more problematic concerns.
Depending on the needle depth applied and if the pen is combined with other modalities we strongly advise a course of 3 to 6 treatments taken every 2 to 6 weeks to provide effective results and the longevity of the skin results.
How quickly will I see the results?
You will see results immediately after a single treatment and progressively over a series of treatments as the new collagen and elastin molecules mature into a well organised matrix in the dermal layer of the skin, increasing volume from within the skin, plumping out fine lines, wrinkles, open pores and scars, along with overall improvements in skin tone, sun-damage and ageing skin.
There is an instant visible reduction in fluid retention and overall improvement in cellulite, which is also progressive over a series of treatments.
In the treatment fat reduction generally at least 3 sessions would be required to see results.
How long will the results last?
Commencing a single treatment the skin will appear taught and bright for several days and up to several months if a deeper needle depth is applied or commencing a course of treatments.
However this depends on many factors, such as how one cares for their skin post treatment, the severity of one’s natural oil production, diet, stress, hormone influences and lifestyle.
