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 The Beauty Sanctuary for both Anti-Ageing Collagen Induction and Scar & Stretch Mark Reduction - Microneedling via the SkinPen™ and Derma Roller & Derma Stamp via Environ - developed by the globally renowned pioneer and inventor of Skin Needling, Dr Des Fernandes.
The SkinPen™ Precision
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. Microneedling is a good way to introduce yourself to skin needling with starting depths of just 0.25mm and a gentle gliding action with the SkinPen. The SkinPen can be combined with a Fusion Mesotherapy vitamin and biomimetic peptide infusion for a bespoke treatment for all skin conditions.
