Micro-needling with SkinPen
SkinPen® is the safest micro-needling device and the first one approved for use by the FDA.
Microneedling with SkinPen® helps you to fight the ageing process, treat acne scars and rejuvenate the skin by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin.
Dr Grace Kelly Clinic is proud to offer the only globally FDA approved micro-needling device (SkinPen Precision) at our Chalfont St Peter, Gerrards Cross clinic. SkinPen is clinically proven with visible results seen after one treatment. SkinPen Precision creates controlled micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s natural wound healing response which initiates the release of natural growth factors to improve collagen formation and cellular tissue. Collagen Induction Therapy assists in the rejuvenation of the epidermal integrity resulting in improved appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. SkinPen Precision can effectively remodel scar tissue whilst maintaining the overall structure of the skin. SkinPen can be used on all areas of the face and body and can treat a number of concerns.
There are three phases involved in the wound-healing process:
Phase I (Inflammation phase) – The piercing of the skin triggers a response in your immune system which disinfects the wounds, increases blood flow and initiates new tissue formation.
Phase II (Proliferation phase) – A new network of blood vessels develop in addition to wound rebuilding involving new granulation cells.
Phase III (Remodeling phase) – The wound is replaced with new blood vessels and Dermal tissues.

THE MICRONEEDLING PROCEDURE:
Our experienced therapist will carefully assess your skin to establish if you are a candidate and will thoroughly explain the procedure, risks and benefits prior to treatment.
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.
After your microneedling in Gerrards Cross clinic, 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 therapist.
