What is Medical Needling?
Needles are used to create 1000s of columns of micro-injury to the skin, stimulating a natural healing response creating new collagen and elastin, remodelling traumatic scars, acne scars , stretch marks and improving skin quality, tone, texture and pigmentation.
How Does it Work?
When the skin is injured a repair process takes place to replace the damaged skin with new collagen and heal the wound. The micro injuries caused by sterile, fine, surgical needles, triggers a complex cascade of wound healing depositing new improved collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid (the ‘bricks and mortar’ of healthy skin structure) providing firmer and more healthier looking skin.
Dermapen also creates superficial microchannels which allow topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively into the skin, thus best results are achieved when used alongside the Alumier MD skin care ranges and other Aesthetic Treatments available at Adonia such as LED Therapy in order to support the skin healing process.
Does it hurt?
Unlike other methods of micro skin needling the dermapen delivers virtually painless treatment due to the vibration and high speed of penetration.
What can be treated?

Are there any side effects?
There will be some redness; this will vary from one individual to another, from a light blush pink through to deep pink, such as sun burn. This will settle, usually significantly within hours, but sometimes taking two or three days to return to normal.
This is a very safe treatment, complications are rare. This will all be discussed with you at consultation and prior to any treatment being agreed. Our Aesthetic Therapist / Practitoner will take a detailed medical history and an assessment of your needs and expectations to ensure this is an appropriate treatment for you.
How long will results last?
Results are achieved gradually over a period of months and four or more treatment sessions are usually required to achieve optimum results. Regular maintenance treatment will also achieve the best results over a longer period of time
