Soften those lines with medical micro-needling!
If your skin could do with a bit of freshening up, consider a micro-needling treatment. Quick, effective and minimally invasive, it’ll wipe away years of sun damage in no time at all!
What’s Medical Micro-Needling?
Micro-needling, sometimes known as collagen induction therapy, is used to treat fine lines and acne scars, and to improve the general appearance of skin. The result is brighter, more youthful looking skin with softer lines and wrinkles.
What’s the The Raffine?
The Raffine is a medical-grade micro-needling pen used to reshape your skin through a series of minute punctures. It can be used on the skin of any part of the body – popular treatment areas include the face and neck, décolletage, arms and hands, knees, abdomen and back.
How does it work?
Micro-needling works by using a series of needles to create tiny micro-tears in the skin to stimulate the production of elastin and collagen. As the skin repairs itself, it creates a thicker dermis with less apparent wrinkles.
What else can it do?
The Raffine can also help make the skin more receptive to the absorption of creams, serums and gels – improving the efficacy of these products. It can also help manage pigmentation issues, as well as improving the appearance of scars and stretch marks.
What does a treatment involve?
The Raffine treatment is faster than you’d imagine, taking only 15-30 minutes depending on the area you need treated. You’ll experience only minimal discomfort – think something like sandpaper being moved over the skin – and while you’ll experience some redness after the treatment, most patients are completely healed in 2-4 days.
How many treatments are involved?
Most patients see skin improvements as far as six months after their Raffine treatment, as your collagen will continue to repair the area during this time. For some, a single treatment once a year is enough for the results you’re after, while those with deep wrinkles or challenging skin conditions will need multiple sessions at roughly 6-8 week intervals.
