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.
- 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.
Microneedling before and after results
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.
An initial consultation will take place to discuss current skincare regimes and skin concerns. Certain skin products containing vitamin A and C may be recommended to aid the production of new collagen and to help achieve the desired results.
Before and after photos of the eDermastamp treatment area will be taken for comparison.
Prior to the eDermastamp procedure, a topical cream will be applied to both numb the treatment area and minimise any discomfort. Dermaroller CIT solution, containing concentrated hyaluronic acid gel, will be used in conjunction with the eDermastamp to help lubricate and hydrate the skin. The headpiece will be moved in a circular motion over the skin allowing 50-150 pricks per second depending on the speed set. The depth of the needles will also be controlled depending on the area of skin.
After the facial eDermastamp procedures have taken place a mask containing hyaluron and matrixyl will be placed over the skin to help soothe and refresh. After this, an SPF will be applied and skin care post treatment will be advised.
The skin will appear flushed and may feel tight and sensitive for a few days following the treatment. Each client will receive PRESCRIBED Solutions Control Tactics gel to help reduce redness and inflammation.
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.
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.
- Spray tanning products.
- Sun exposure.
The skin may appear red for the first 48 hours and there may be very mild peeling and tightness/dryness. Most people can return to work within 1-2 days.
The skin texture will start to improve after 6-8 weeks with new collagen formation.
The eDermastamp is electrically controlled for speed and depth with a smaller treatment head, allowing for greater accuracy and precision in hard-to-treat areas. It is beneficial for larger treatments areas with a larger cylindrical head that is manually operated, so the practitioner can vary the intensity of the treatment.

I had a botox treatment with cosmodocs. I found the price very reasonable. Even better the results were excellent. I will definitely use this service again.” – BH
I am a very satisfied customer of Cosmedocs – I’ve had three facial areas treated with Anti-Wrinkle Injection at CosmeDocs in recent years, and find the treatment swift, thorough and effective. Also, Dr Haq’s pleasant and friendly manner makes the treatment as painless as possible!” – CFSP
