The Dermapen microneedling technique is designed to trigger collagen production (which we stop producing from the ages of 27) through microneedling technique. It is used to help improve scarring (acne scarring & keloid scars), hyperpigmentation and stretch marks.
It can also be used to retexturise the skin. The sooner you treat your concern once developed, the better the results. The Dermapen microneedling can also help with skin tightening and can be used on fine lines, wrinkles and stretch marks! It is highly important in taking care of your skin with a personalised skin regime designed to help the treatment.
Harley Cosmetic London puts a reasonable skin regime by using our products Beaute Pacifique, to help feed the skin and ENHANCE your results.
We are offering this amazing treatment in both our Enfield & Harley Street, London locations.
Once you have had the procedure done, you must do the following:
DO NOT EXPOSE YOURSELF TO THE SUN!
After you have undergone your microneedling procedure, stay out of the sun for 48 hours. If there is sun apply your Serum Paradoxe antioxidant by Beaute Pacifique PLUS your oil free 30spf cream. RE-apply every 2 hours as SPF deactivates.
DO NOT USE ANY “ACTIVE INGREDIENT” SKIN PRODUCTS
Post procedure, avoid any skin care product that has active ingredients. These commonly include things like Alpha Hydroxyl Acids, Retinol and other similar agents. The skin will be highly sensitive and these products will only irritate the skin further. Allow your skin to heal and feed it hydration.
USE COLLAGEN STIMULATING PEPTIDES
As microneedling serves to stimulate the production of collagen, the skin needs higher amounts of collagen than normal to recover optimally. Collagen Stimulating Peptides assist in that process, further aiding in the stimulation of collagen production. After 72 hours we recommend our Beauty Pacifique vitamin A treatment cream ‘ super 3 booster’.
AVOID THE USE OF MAKEUP AFTER TREATMENT
It is imperative that you let your skin “breathe” and recover for 24 hours after the procedure. The skin channels are open, and using a makeup brush can penetrate the pores, especially if they are very thin, causing further irritation. Using a makeup brush that has been used before can contaminate the skin and, consequently, lead to infections. Wait 24 to 48 hours before you apply face makeup to give your skin the necessary recovery time.
USE A COOLING FACE MASK
After you have undergone your microneedling treatment, you may experience some erythema (redness to the skin) or mild inflammation. Using a our Beauty Pacifique hydrating cooling masque will help reduce the inflammation or redness of the skin, giving you more comfort and freshness.
USE AN ANTIOXIDANT SERUM (prescribed by your practitioner)
Antioxidant serums have properties that assist in the healing of the skin. Serums assist in soothing the skin and reduces further irritation.
As you sweat the pores of your skin will reopen, and the bacteria on your skin may enter the skin punctures. This can lead to a either a reaction or infection.
It is important to stay hydrated before and after your procedure to help your skin heal and rejuvenate faster.
