Great clinic. Had the designer lip filler with Dr Thu Linh and my lips look fantastic, they look natural too which I was worried about! Great team! - Vanessa
I'm very impressed with this clinic. My experience from booking in with the reception team to being seen by one of their doctors has been phenomenal. I will definitely be recommending your services. Thank you Dr Roked for the level of care and how you've helped me so far. - Fred
I was having trouble with my acne for a while. I had been to a few clinics before Omniya but didn't get the results I wanted.
Omniya was recommended and had great reviews. I saw Kerry Lou, one of their skin specialist. She explained that with the right treatment and a little patience I would see results. I brought a course of facials. Each one is slightly different depending on what is needed. I'm very happy with the improvement. - Shayma
Omniya's Dr Tu Lin was recommended to me by a friend who has the most incredible skin and lips. Obviously, I had to try. She is such a caring doctor, and went out of her way. I've had lip fillers in the past with others, but now I've been to Omniya I doubt I need to go anywhere else. I love my new lips. Omniya Clinic is without fail the best place for lip fillers in London! Thank you! - Nora
Great experience overall. The hormone doctor is phenomenal and has helped me a great deal. I wont go into too much detail but she has helped me in all aspects of my life. I have more energy I'm sleeping better. They have amazing skin treatments too. I recently tried PRP dermapen and my skin looks and feels great. - Danilo
I just wanted to say thank you to Omniya Clinic and Dr Roked for helping me. I had misconceptions about testosterone replacement therapy in the past, but now that I'm on TRT I feel back to my best! Long may it continue. Thank you to everyone at Omniya Clinic. MB - Matt
What Microneedling Does For Your Skin
Microneedling is a fantastic treatment for various conditions and to improve overall skin health, with little downtime. This includes pigment issues, stretch mark removal, brown spots, pore size, texture, loose skin, acne scars, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It can also be called percutaneous collagen induction (PCI), collagen induction therapy (CIT), and needling.
How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling is based on the principle that there is a release of growth factors once the stratum corneum is pierced. Stratum corneum is the term that is used to describe the outermost layer of the epidermis. These growth factors are deemed to be responsible for treating a number of different conditions. The treatment will enhance your skin by increasing collagen production, as well as making it thicker and stronger and facilitating natural repair and growth.
Key Treatment Areas For Problematic Skin
Pigmentation happens in two different ways – inflammatory and passive. The former occurs due to the natural defence mechanisms activating in our skin. Our melanin moves up to defend against trauma that has been caused due to factors like injury, poor products, and sunlight. On the other hand, there is passive pigmentation. This happens because of an internal imbalance that stimulates the hormone that stimulates melanin. These imbalances can be caused due to various medications, the contraceptive pill, hormonal imbalances, and pregnancy. Microneedling can be used in order to correct pigmentation by enhancing the availability of skin lightening actives.
A considerable proportion of acne sufferers are going to have some type of scarring to show for it. Medical studies have indicated that there has been between 30 and 95 per cent of patients that will have scarring from acne. Microneedling helps reduce the severity and the risk of acne scars. Existing scarring will be mechanically broken down, with the production of collagen and elastin being stimulated. These are two components that are critical for healthy skin. You will notice an immediate glow, and the scars will break down. You may require a few treatments for optimal results.
Wrinkles And Anti-Ageing
Ageing skin droops, which can cause the development of furrows, lines, and wrinkles. Consequently, the severity of these can change depending on the person’s skin-type and their genetic tendency, as well as their exposure to environmental factors. Wrinkles happen when the skin loses tightness and suppleness as it ages. We typically find this around the mouth, forehead, and eyes, i.e. areas whereby the skin is commonly stretched. Through collagen production being renewed via the Dermapen treamtent, the skin becomes thicker, plumped out, and retains its elasticity.
We find rosacea most commonly seen in people aged 30-years-old or above. It may look like a mysterious redness or simple sunburn to begin with. Early treatment is a necessity. We cannot cure rosacea, but it can be controlled. You can help to control this condition with Dermapen, which stimulates the epidermal growth factor that will enhance the epidermis’ density. This will lessen the appearance of vessels, as well as the overall redness. It will strengthen collagen in both connective tissue and vessel walls, as well as enhancing the availability of antioxidants and cell nutrients.
There are many benefits associated with micro-needling, which is why it has become such a popular treatment.
- Micro-needling can be personalised with ease by going deeper into some parts of the skin whereby the damage will require an approach that is more aggressive.
- Micro-needling is more affordable when compared with other treatments, such as laser resurfacing, and it does not have the associated risks. You will find it is generally sufficient to have six to ten sessions at a gap of a month at a time.
- Micro-needling results in regenerative healing, rather than cicatricial healing.
- We can combine Dermapen with a number of other acne scar treatments, for example, fractional resurfacing, microdermabrasion, chemical peeling, and subcision, giving optimal benefits.
- We can perform the treatment on most areas of the body, as well as all skin-types.
- The treatment creates microchannels that will enhance the rate at which serums are absorbed, increasing their efficacy overall. Medical studies have proven that the serum absorption rate can be increased by as much as 1,000 times with micro-needling.
Preparing For Your First Treatment
We suggest that, for the best results of your micro-needling treatment, and to lower the risk of any side effects, a number of steps before a micro-needling procedure begins.
This includes the following:
- You will need to take medication before the treatment if you have a history of cold sores. This is something one of our specialists will be able to advise on. This is because micro-needling could result in a cold sore breakout, as it can activate the immune system.
- Use Vitamin C and Vitamin A serums at least a month prior to the treatment. This will aide the optimisation of dermal collagen formation.
- Avoid excessive sun exposure two weeks before you have treatment.
Micro Needling Recovery
The recovery time will not be any longer than seven days, and we find most people fully recovered in a matter of between 3-4 days. The recovery process will entail no hot showers, using serums, and avoiding direct sunlight. You can wear pure mineral makeup a day after the treatment in order to cover the redness and help with healing. It is advisable to use sunscreen products. Make sure you avoid activities causing excessive perspiration and chlorinated swimming pools for a few days.
After you have had the treatment, you will notice that there is a redness, appearing like mild sunburn. It is common on the first day to have a little bit of bruising and a puffy facial appearance after Dermapen treatment. The treatment area may feel a bit tight and dry for the first dew days after micro needling. Between day four and six, there will be a small amount of swelling and bruising will be close to disappearing at this point. It’s not unusual to experience flaking, and by the seventh day, there will be very little visible signs that you have had any sort of procedure.
Micro Needling FAQ’s
You have probably read all of the stories about people who have stated their amazement at the results they have experienced from microneedling and you’re worrying if the hype is true. In a review that was carried out in 2018, it was deemed that microneedling is an effective and safe way to rejuvenate the skin and treat wrinkles and scars. We found this to be confirmed by the American Academy of Dermatology.
We will undertake a consultation whereupon our specialist practitioners will assess your needs to come up with the most appropriate treatment plan. We will advise on the number of sessions required; which depends on the treatment area, and the treatment prices, which start from £350.
We consider microneedling to be a safe treatment, with most skin types tolerating the treatment well, but choose a practitioner with care. Our medically trained practitioners have the experience and knowledge to achieve fantastic results with Dermapen.
Our patients have not found Dermapen treatments to be overbearingly painful. However, if you have concerns, we can apply numbing cream before the treatment is carried out if you wish.
You may be wondering whether or not you are going to be a suitable candidate for microneedling if you are ageing. We always carry out an initial consultation to ascertain suitability. An experienced practitioner will be able to give their views after assessing your skin. However, we consider microneedling effective and safe procedure for older skin, which can help rejuvenate or tighten ageing or loose skin, as well as diminish scarring and reduce wrinkles.
