The GoldPen® micro-needle therapy system is used to stimulate your skin to give you smoother, brighter and healthier looking skin. Treatment areas can include your face, hands, neck and décolletage.
The GoldPen® opens up thousands of tiny micro-channels per second in your skin. This stimulates your fibroblasts, naturally increasing collagen and elastin production resulting in the renewal of your dermis. This also encourages blood circulation, improves cellular function and oxygenates your skin to further help with renewal and rejuvenation.
Micro-needling can significantly improve the appearance of:
To obtain the best results we would recommend a course of treatment (which is dependent on the condition being treated). Normally at least three treatments are required with 4- 6 weeks in between.
A favourite with the stars, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy (otherwise known as the 'vampire facial') uses your own blood to promote new skin cell growth, boost collagen production and improve circulation.
For optimal results in skin renewal and rejuvenation, we combine the treatment with GoldPen® microneedling to allow deeper penetration of the PRP into your skin to maximise the results.
Firstly, you would have a thorough consultation with a clinician (including a medical history and photographs for your records) and if you wish to go ahead you will be consented and booked in for a treatment appointment.
At this appointment, which will take around an hour, your skin is cleaned and numbed with a local anaesthetic cream to make the procedure comfortable. We would then take a small blood sample from your arm, similar to a blood test at your GP. This sample is then put into a centrifuge machine which spins the blood very quickly for 10 minutes, separating the component parts into the red blood cells, separating gel, platelets and platelet rich plasma (PRP). After the face is thoroughly cleaned a layer of PRP will be applied to the skin and the GoldPen® used to create micro-channels to allow optimal penetration of the PRP into your skin.
We would then apply some ZO sunscreen afterwards to ensure your skin is fully protected from UV light.
You may look a little red for the next few hours but otherwise there is very little down-time.
