Skin and facial microneedling

Skin and hair rejuvenation using the bodys repair mechanism

Medical microneedling promotes rejuvenation by inducing calculated trauma to the skin, activating natural repair mechanisms. At CosmeDocs, we use advanced electronic microneedling devices for improved result and reduced discomfort.

Indications for microneedling

  • Fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Dull skin.
  • Enlarged pores.
  • Pigmentation.
  • Acne and surgical scars.
  • Hands, neck and décolletage rejuvenation
  • Hair loss

How does microneedling work?

Medical Skin Needling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), rejuvenates the skin by creating numerous micro-channels in the skin and encouraging new cell growth. The electronic needle causes tiny punctures in the skin. These small punctures promote blood flow and repairing mediators, which trigger the production of collagen and elastin. Immediate skin-plumping is noticeable.

The punctures close over almost immediately as the channels are tiny. However, this short period allows us to deliver high potency cocktail of ingredients including (vitamin c, retinol, peptides) deep within the skin.

How painful is microneedling?

Topical anaesthetic for 30 minutes before the treatment numbs the skin to make the procedure comfortable.

eDermastamp Treatment Phases

Before Treatment (left most). After Treatment with eDermastamp (2nd from left), Mask (3rd from left). After 8 hours (right most).

When is eDermastamp not suitable

  • Treatment is not advised within 1 week of other injectables such as dermal fillers or botox. However, it can be performed after this period.
  • Raised moles and skin lesions are avoided during a treatment.
  • Skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema and psoriasis.
  • Actinic (solar) keratosis.
  • Keloid or raised scarring.
  • Scars less than 6 months old.
  • Pregnancy and breastfeeding.
  • Active skin infection such as a cold sore.
  • Scleroderma and collagen vascular diseases.
  • Other medical conditions such as immunosuppression and diabetes.

What are the Possible Side Effects?

There are minimal side effects, which include, mild swelling, peeling and very occasional bruising. Infection is very unlikely as the micro channels close within minutes of treatment.

Follow Up Treatments

3 treatments are usually recommended 5-6 weeks apart, but scars may require further treatments.

Aftercare

The following should be avoided for the first 48 hours:

  • Touching or rubbing the face.
  • Retinol, alpha hydroxyl acids (such as glycolic acid) and any ‘active’ product that could irritate the skin.
