at Omniya Clinic in London
Microneedling could be the perfect anti-ageing treatment, if you’re looking for smoother, more radiant skin, with overall better skin health. At Omniya Clinic in London, we use an innovative and well-regarded device known as a Dermapen, which could help you generate new skin tissue and increase collagen production, giving you a smoother and more toned appearance.
We perform the microneedling treatment most commonly on the face, as it can be used to treat large pores, wrinkles, and various scars with fantastic results.
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.
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.
There are many benefits associated with micro-needling, which is why it has become such a popular treatment.
