Skin Needling - SkinPen & M-Pen Microneedling & Crystal Clear COMCIT Elite

Skin Needling is one of the most effective in-clinic treatments for treating anti-ageing, photo-ageing, acne scars, aged and sun damaged skin, fine lines and wrinkles, scars and stretch marks on the face & neck and body, including hands, arms, decollete and tummy. Along with Mesotherapy, this is one of the most highly recommended treatments at Sanctuary Skin Clinic for the ultimate in facial and body skin rejuvenation and/or scar reduction.

If you are new to needling, we can gently introduce you to the treatment with virtually no pain or downtime, so don't let the idea of needling put you off!  We use a good topical anaesthetic, and most clients can return to normal activities the following day, with some redness and/or dry skin lasting 2-5 days, which can be covered with makeup after 12 hours.  We use two superb Needling Methods at Sanctuary Skin Clinic for both Anti-Ageing Collagen Induction and Scar & Stretch Mark Reduction - Microneedling via the SkinPen™ or Mesoestetic M-Pen and Derma Roller via Crystal Clear COMCIT Elite.  Needle depth can be adjusted to 0.25mm - 1.5mm for the face and up to 2.5mm for the body.  Full medical consultation and suitability required.  For even greater results see our Fractional Radiofrequency treatment for microneedling with RF energy.

The SkinPen™ Precision or Mesoestetic M-Pen Microneedling
Microneedling via a derma pen. Various needle depths of 0.25mm-2.5mm. We completely buy into the unsurpassed patient safety with the Bellus Medical SkinPen™ Precision. Developed in conjunction with the FDA for the only 100% completely sealed cartridge on the global market to prevent fluid intake. It also has a single use lock out feature, so removing any possibility of cross contamination or re use of the disposable needling device.   We also offer Mesoestetic M-Pen Microneedling.  Microneedling is a good way to introduce yourself to skin needling with starting depths of just 0.25mm and a gentle gliding action.  Microneedling can be combined with a Mesoestetic Mesotherapy vitamin and  biomimetic peptide infusion for a bespoke treatment for all skin conditions.

Both the SkinPen and COMCIT Elite Derma Roller treatments can be adapted for the body, with amazing results being seen on the arms, tummy etc.. for scar and stretch mark reduction, in addition to skin tightening and rejuvenation for wrinkles, thin and crepey skin.
A course of 6 recommended and a full consultation required.  Downtime is minimal, with mild-moderate redness and erythema immediately after treatment and for approx. 24-48 hours afterwards, followed by a 2-3 day period of dry skin - however we use a soothing post repair cream after treatment, which is also provided for you in a take home size, free of charge. The addition of a Hydrogel Mask and/or LED Face Mask on Blue wavelength would also considerably calm any redness.  Many clients would leave the salon with only minimal redness and be perfectly able to return to normal activities the following day.  It is however, not suitable for use on the following skin conditions: Active acne, Eczema, Psoriasis, severe solar keratosis and raised moles or warts. The treatment time can range from 60-120 minutes. It should initially be repeated in clinic each 1-4 weeks as part of a course for optimum results or each 1-6 months as part of an overall facial maintenance regime.  Skin Needling can only be booked followed a full, free consultation.  Email Jo directly at or on 0161 440 0001 / 07957 922888
