Microneedling activates the skin’s own natural healing processes to rejuvenate the skin and improve a variety of skin conditions.

Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) involves the use of fine needles to create tiny punctures in the skin. This in turn stimulates the skin’s natural healing response to regenerate and repair itself, and creates smoother, brighter, healthier and younger-looking skin. It can be used alone or in conjunction with other treatments such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels or Dermalux® LED phototherapy.

At HSC Clinic, we use The Derma FNS (Fractional Needling System), previously known as Dermapen®. Dermapen® is seen as one of the industry leaders in microneedling, as its unique electronic mechanism allows the practitioner to adjust the intensity and depth of the treatment for optimum results. This treatment is bespoke and a personalised treatment plan will be created to help you achieve your goals.

Frequently Asked Questions

Everything you need to know

Microneedling uses fine needles to create tiny punctures in the skin, which triggers the skin’s natural healing response to regenerate and repair itself. As a result, the skin is stimulated to produce higher levels of collagen and elastin to plump the skin, creating smoother, brighter, healthier and younger-looking skin.

Microneedling is primarily used to treat areas on the face, neck and décolletage, but it can also be used to treat stretch marks on other areas of the body. At an initial consultation, we will formulate a treatment plan suited to your individual needs.

Topical numbing cream can be applied to the area before your microneedling treatment to minimise discomfort.

Microneedling is a highly popular and widely performed treatment. At HSC Clinic, our experience and expertise ensure that our microneedling treatments, and indeed all our treatments, are performed safely by highly qualified practitioners.

Immediately after your treatment, your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. There will be slight redness, as though you have moderate sunburn. This indicates a good treatment and will start to subside over the next 1-2 days. As your skin starts to regenerate and repair, it may well feel drier than normal, so aftercare products and SPF are recommended.

The number of sessions required will depend on the severity of the problem and your individual treatment plan will be discussed at your initial consultation.

For collagen induction, we recommend starting with a minimum of 3 treatments, repeated every 4-6 weeks.

For scar reduction, we would expect an average of 3-6 treatments at the same intervals: every 4-6 weeks.

Some plumping effect can be seen immediately after microneedling. It can take up to 6 weeks to see significant results, as microneedling relies on the stimulation of the bodys natural healing processes.

After a year of treatment that failed to clear severe acne, I took my granddaughter to HSC. Now, three months later, her skin is clear and the scars are fading. Thank you Mazieh and your great staff.

Margaret Ridgers

Went today for my first ever procedure and absolutely couldn’t fault the care and attention that I was given by Marzieh – without doubt I cannot imagine anyone could ever make me feel so at ease and make the process as painless as possible as what she did !! Highly recommend this great clinic and already considering the next procedure !!
