Skin Needling / Micro-needling

Micro-needling is a procedure that uses a significant number of tiny needles to puncture the very first layer of skin on your face or any part of the body.

This process works to rejuvenate your skin by boosting collagen production, which in turn reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and elevates the overall texture of your skin, Giving an all-over revitalised look to the skin.

Micro skin needling devices have been designed for and to provide scientifically proven results. The needles penetrate the skin into the dermis layer. The procedure is specifically designed to target and penetrate only fractions of the skin per treatment, thereby encouraging faster downtime, less discomfort and an almost immediate outcome.

This is a non-invasive, results-orientated technology where a serum or Stayve Booster Ampoule is micro-needled into the skin. All new treatments will include disposable one-use only needle cartridges.

We are fully qualified and had face to face training for this treatment, it’s not something that should be performed with online training. Our Beauty Therapist also holds a recognised Maintain Infection Control standards qualification.
