Needling Treatments in Stamford & Peterborough

SkinPen is the most advanced Micro needling pen to date. By creating thousands of microchannels in the skin we can stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process, while minimising cellular damage. This rejuvenates your skin from the inside out. The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue and wrinkles, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact. This is one of our most anti ageing treatments!

CUTERA SECRET RF

The Secret RF is the most Advanced non-surgical treatment available on the market, it is a Fractional Radio frequency (RF) Micro-Needling device that delivers heat directly into the deeper layers of skin with minimal damage to the skin’s surface. This targeted energy revitalises, rebuilds, and effectively remodels collagen to improve the most common skin concerns like lines, wrinkles, open pores, sagging, pigmentation,  scarring, seen on the face and body, with very little to no downtime.

Secret RF uses micro-needles to deliver radio-frequency energy into varying levels of the skin, including the deeper layers, where treatment is most beneficial. The amount of energy released is customised and delivered at targeted depths, ranging from 0.5mm-3.5mm. This unique delivery of energy helps revitalise and regenerate the tissue and addresses a huge range of aesthetic concerns.

  • Less lines and wrinkles
  • A tighter, firmer more plumper skin
  • Improvement of mid face sagging
  • Scarring smoothed
  • A more even texture and tone.
  • Pigmentation reduced
  • A more youthful you.

Secret RF treatment can treat all skin types and is ideal for anyone looking to reduce the appearance of:
Ageing skin, fine lines, and wrinkles

  • Crepey and lax skin
  • Double chin and weak jaws
  • Scars and acne scarring
  • Open pores and texture
  • Photo-damage – vascular, pigmentation
  • Stretch marks
  • Cellulite

Is there any downtime?
Thanks to the unique delivery of Secret RF, there is little to no downtime required after sessions. On the day of your treatment, you may find that your skin has a little redness and may be a little sore to touch or have minor swelling and a slight roughness for a week. However, by the next day, you can usually return to wearing makeup and using your recommended skincare.
How many Secret RF treatments will I need?
Clients typically need 3-4 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, to achieve optimal results. Most patients report seeing improvement after the second treatment however results are optimised 3 months after the first treatment.
Why is Secret™ RF better than Traditional Microneedling Alone?
Secret™ RF needling combines both skin micro-needling AND radio-frequency, producing a synergistic effect much greater than the sum of each treatment individually. Traditional RF uses a handpiece that sits on top of the skin’s surface. The RF energy needs to penetrate through the surface layers of the skin before it produces an effect thus delivering RF at a lower energy level producing less collagen stimulation even though effective.

Secret™ RF micro-needling, on the other hand, uses the micro-needles to deliver the fractionated RF energy directly and precisely into the dermis. The RF energy administered this way has greater heating and denaturing effect on the dermal collagen resulting in greater stimulation of new collagen and more effective remodelling, producing better and more consistent results. Its effect is closer to fractionated laser than traditional RF. In addition to this, the micro-injuries induced by the physical needling produce additional collagen stimulation and also can help in reducing skin pigmentation which traditional RF cannot do.

SKINPEN MICRO-NEEDLING

SkinPen Precision gives your skin the reset that it needs. Not only is SkinPen the first FDA-cleared micro-needling device, it’s also made in the USA – which means it’s rigorously tested for safety. In as few as three treatments, SkinPen Precision can make a visible difference with little down time.

Micro-needling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that helps minimise the signs of ageing and scarring. The SkinPen micro-needling device causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process. The micro-injuries trigger the release of cytokines and growth factors that lead to remodelling of the tissue, stopping, and reversing ageing and scarring concerns!

There are three phases to the wound-repair process:

  • Phase I: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to cleanse the wound, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.
  • Phase II: Proliferation. The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
  • Phase III: Remodelling. The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.

One of our Aesthetic practitioners will carefully assess your skin to establish if you are a candidate and will thoroughly explain the procedure, risks and benefits prior to treatment.

Prior to your treatment we will cleanse the skin and apply a topical anaesthetic cream, this is so the treatment is more comfortable. The treatment doesn’t hurt but simply feels scratchy. The SkinPen is carefully glided across the area of concern using the Skinfuse LIFT HG (Allergy free from cytotoxic) to create hundreds of microscopic puncture wounds which stimulates the natural repair process and activates collagen and elastin production. Erythema should be visible with possible signs of blood spotting, this gives us indication that the depth is at its correct point in order to penetrate deep enough into the skin.

SkinPen Precision can help correct:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scarring
  • Melasma
  • Rosacea
  • Other scarring such as trauma or surgical
  • Stretch marks
  • Hyperpigmentation or irregular skin tone

So whether you have acne scarring, ageing concerns or simply want to future proof your skin then we get amazing results! The only skin concern we would avoid this treatment with is active acne as it can spread bacteria. Also if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding. SkinPen is extremely effective in repairing and normalising the skin, making skin healthy and strong.

Is there any down time?
With SkinPen, there is some down time. It doesn’t require putting a paper bag on your head for a week but you will experience some redness initially for the first 48hrs and dryness for anything up to 10 days.
POST TREATMENT:
You should avoid touching the area or applying any products onto the skin for 12 hours in order to prevent infection. Post treatment Skinfuse LIFT HG can be applied to help soothe the area. After 12 hours Skinfuse RESCUE Calming complex can be used to help support remodelling of the skin. The treatment area can be red and warm for 24 to 48 hours post treatment but most patients see a reduction in erythema after 24 hours of treatment. Specific post treatment instructions will be given to you by your aesthetic practitioner.
How many is recommended?
SkinPen micro-needling sessions are usually spaced four to six weeks apart. Sessions are spaced at least one month apart because it can take anywhere from four to six weeks for the full results of treatment to be realised. This is if you’re treating a specific concern, if you’re wanting to keep skin healthy and maintain skin health, you can have this treatment every 3 months. Recommendation for skin pen is anything between 3-6 session but each case varies on what concern you’re treating.
