Microneedling: Unlocking the Secrets to Age-Defying Skin

Published On: 26th September, 2023 | Category: Advice & Tips

Welcome to Cardiff Cosmetic Clinic, where beauty meets transformation. Our passion extends beyond merely providing treatments, we are in the business of crafting unforgettable experiences. With the rise of minimally invasive skin treatments, the benefits of microneedling has risen to prominence. Let’s delve into why this treatment might be the secret to achieving your skin goals!

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that employs a handheld device with fine needles at its tip. It gently interacts with the deeper layers of the skin, initiating a series of rejuvenating processes to improve the appearance of various skin concerns, from facial lines to acne scars. 

Benefits of Microneedling?

Microneedling is a game-changer for those eager to rejuvenate their skin without the commitment of major downtime. This treatment champions the natural capabilities of our skin by enhancing collagen and elastin production. The benefits of Microneedling? Well, there are many:

  • Smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines
  • Diminishing the prominence of acne scars
  • Repairing stretch marks
  • Correcting sun damage
  • Refining uneven skin texture and tone

What Sets Cardiff Cosmetic Clinic Apart?

While microneedling in itself is transformative, the tools and expertise employed can greatly enhance the outcome. And this is where our clinic shines. We’ve handpicked two of the leading microneedling technologies available: The renowned Dermapen and the innovative XCellaris PRO TWIST.

Dermapen: Dermapen: Tried, Tested, and True

Dermapen is not just another tool, it’s a testament to precision and efficiency. By creating minute punctures in the skin, it triggers our body’s intrinsic healing processes. Consequently, collagen production gets a boost, leading to a skin texture that’s reminiscent of one’s youthful days. And worry not about discomfort, the device’s design ensures minimal pain, with post-treatment effects resembling a slight sunburn, which subsides rapidly.

XCellaris PRO TWIST: Revolutionising Microneedling

Dermapen might be a staple, but our recent addition, XCellaris PRO TWIST, has added a new dimension to our offering. Its rapid performance combined with its specially designed cone-shaped needles ensures your skin remains undamaged. Each session brings you closer to the skin of your dreams, addressing myriad issues from signs of ageing to uneven tones.

Post-Treatment Journey: What to Expect After Microneedling?

Microneedling isn’t just a treatment, it’s a commitment to your skin’s health. Here’s what the days following your treatment might look like:

  • Immediate Post-Procedure: Once done, you’re free to head home. It’s normal for the skin to appear reddened, which can last up to five days. To ease any irritation, a cold pack does wonders.
  • Skin Care: The next day, you can return to your makeup routine, but sun exposure is a strict no-no until your skin fully recovers. You might experience sensations of tightness or burning and maybe even some flaky skin. Don’t fret; a good moisturiser can set it right.
  • Treatment Plan: Skincare is a journey, not a destination. Most clients undergo multiple sessions spaced 3 to 8 weeks apart. And while results can be witnessed in 3 to 6 months, consider an annual session to maintain that enviable glow.

Microneedling vs. Home Rollers: Making the Right Choice

It’s tempting to seek DIY alternatives for professional treatments. Home derma rollers, though seemingly convenient, lack the depth of professional microneedling. Consequently, they don’t offer the same rejuvenating results. While a roller might grant you a temporary glow, for lasting radiance and rejuvenation, professional microneedling remains unparalleled.
