MICRONEEDLING

Micro-needling or collagen induction therapy is a minimally invasive treatment to rejuvenate the skin. A motorised device with fine needles is used to create tiny micro channels in the top layers of the skin, which triggers the body to produce new collagen and elastin. Results include improved texture and firmness, as well as a reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks

At Silk Aesthetics, we use the advanced Dr. Pen A6 microneedling pen that oscillates up and down to create fine puncture points. The body reacts by producing additional collagen and elastin. Over time, microneedling helps rejuvenate the skin, leaving it firm and more youthful in appearance.

The ultra thin titanium needles create tiny micro-cavities in the skin’s surface. This stimulates the body to boost the regenerative processes that naturally takes place in the skin everyday. 

During this regeneration, collagen and elastin production can be increased which in turn may cause the skin to become firmer, for scars to gradually reduce and for wrinkles to smooth out. Studies have shown microneedling can increase localised skin collagen production by up to 400%.

Considered safe for all skin types, the use of microneedling presents little risk of hyperpigmentation for individuals with darker skin. Moreover, this procedure involves little to no downtime and minimal recovery time. You’ll experience minor redness and irritation for a few days after the procedure.

Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a quick and pain free resurfacing treatment. The therapist uses a sterile surgical blade to gently scrape away a layer of dead skin cells on the surface. During the process the blade also scrapes of the fine “peach fuzz”, leaving your skin smooth and soft.

Dermaplaning is one of the most effective facial exfoliation treatments. You can use it as an alternative to microdermabrasion or chemical peels or along with these procedures for an enhanced result.

Following this treatment, makeup application is smoother and other skin products penetrate deeper making them more effective.
