Microneedling

Microneedling actively stimulates the skin’s collagen and elastin production, enabling the repair of the skin’s surface as well as its deeper layers. The treatment results in wonderfully taut, healthy-looking skin.

Microneedling is used for the treatment of:

  • Sagging and aging skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Pigmentation spots
  • Coarse, enlarged pores
  • Acne
  • Scars (from acne, surgery, burns)

Microneedling

What is microneedling?

During a microneedling treatment, the skin therapist punctures tiny holes into your skin at high speed using a special pen (or roller, or stamper). Rather than damaging your skin, these miniscule openings activate the production of new cells, which triggers your skin’s natural repair process. The treatment also releases growth factors that stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. Microneedling is a precision treatment that delivers a variety of rapid and effective skin improvements.

Rapid results

Microneedling results in smoother, firmer skin and a more even complexion after only a few treatments. It also ensures the gradual reduction of acne (scars) and fine lines, lending your face a wonderfully healthy glow. Microneedling actively boosts cell division, causing old skin to gently peel away in the weeks following treatment. It simultaneously expedites the production of healthy new cells, enabling your skin’s horny layer (the outermost layer of the epidermidis) to regain its former radiance and refinement. Microneedling also reduces the risk of blocked pores caused by excessive sebum and, as the skin renews itself, additionally eliminates pigmentation issues (such as pigmentation spots, age spots and sun damage). Serums containing a high concentration of active ingredients are more readily absorbed into the skin.

 

Microneedling Voor & Na

The microneedling treatment

We invariably commence with an intake session, during which one of our skin therapists performs an extensive skin analysis, furnishes you with detailed information about microneedling and devises an appropriate treatment plan.

 

We apply a special serum prior to treatment, enabling the derma pen to glide smoothly over your skin. This derma pen creates tiny channels that direct the serum into the desired skin layer for optimal efficacy. The entire area is treated using gentle horizontal, vertical and diagonal stroking movements.

 

The skin therapist determines the needles’ depth of penetration (ranging from 0.5 mm to 2 mm) based on your skin complaint and condition. Your skin may develop petechiae (or pinpoint spots of blood) during deeper treatments, however, such spots heal instantaneously. Your skin will appear red and feel warm to the touch for 1 to 2 hours following treatment. Whilst these after effects gradually subside, a red glow will remain visible for a few days and your skin will experience some minor flaking. Your skin therapist will provide additional advice on suitable aftercare products for use at home.

 

Microneedling isn’t entirely pain-free. The application of an anaesthetic cream may therefore be recommended, depending on the treatment zone.

Microneedling & Peel | GLOW

Microneedling combined with a chemical peel; two effective treatments in one.

 

This treatment combines a microneedling procedure with a chemical peel. This intensifies the effects for enhanced results. The skin therapist commences with the microneedling treatment, which ensures improved absorption during the subsequent chemical peel. The peel comprises a combination of glycolic acid and lactic acid, which is applied immediately after the microneedling treatment. Microneedling and peels are both designed to stimulate skin renewal, with the aim of achieving an even complexion, repairing sun-damaged skin, and reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and impurities.

 

This combination treatment takes an average of 45 to 60 minutes and immediately lends your face a healthy, radiant GLOW. We recommend undergoing a course of microneedling treatments.

Experienced microneedling specialists

Our experienced skin therapists perform microneedling treatments in The Hague, Oegstgeest and Wassenaar. We commence the process with an intensive intake session, during which we examine your skin and discuss your requirements in detail. We subsequently devise a personal treatment plan and furnish you with information about microneedling to help you prepare for your treatment.

 

All our skin-improving treatments are performed with exceptional care. The skin therapist commences with a professional skin cleansing treatment, before applying the serum and proceeding with the microneedling procedure. We may also anesthetise your skin prior to treatment, depending on the treatment zone.

FAQ Microneedling

You’ll require an average of three to six treatments for optimal results, depending on the condition of your skin. Performing a course of treatments enables us to carefully monitor your progress. Each microneedling treatment visibly boosts your skin.

Your skin condition will start to improve demonstrably within an average of 4-6 weeks. This process continues for approximately six months after your last treatment. As with other skin improvement treatments, the more treatments you have, the greater the effect.

You won’t notice immediate results after your first microneedling treatment. The first improvements only manifest after three weeks, due to the skin’s natural recovery process and the production of the body’s own collagen. Optimal results can be observed after two months, once this recovery process is in full swing.

Whilst the treatment isn’t entirely pain-free, it’s certainly tolerable for most people. An anaesthetic cream can be prescribed and applied upon request.

Costs for microneedling treatments vary according to the size of the treatment zone (face, neck, cleavage) and skin complaint. Please view our prices page for more information.

Small dots of blood may form during treatment. These disappear after a few minutes, as the skin openings start to close. Your skin may turn pink to red immediately after treatment, and may also undergo some light flaking or minor swelling. In some cases, small crusts can develop, however, these disappear extremely quickly. Your skin will feel fresher and tighter within just a few days of your microneedling treatment.
