EDS £110 per session (3-4 Recommended)
Mesotherapy £110 per session
Although most treatments are carried out on the face, EDS can be used anywhere on the body where there is scarring or skin regeneration is required. It is very popular to use on the upper chest (décolletage) where it can act upon creased skin, on stretch marks on the abdomen, on thighs and buttocks and scars due to surgery or trauma.
The medical device is used to produce thousands of micro-medical needle columns in the skin. Each column will penetrate into the dermis of the skin and will be approximately 0.1mm in width. The column will close rapidly enabling the skin to recover quickly – often in the same day. We use a topical anesthetic or local anesthetic injection to numb the skin making the procedure comfortable; it will normally take up to 15 minutes for the topical anesthetic to work and 20 – 30 minutes for the procedure.
After a Dermaroller procedure your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, working below the surface in the dermis. This takes time as new collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced. It can take up to six weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair are seen and the process will continue over the following months, providing you with a natural and long lasting enhancement.
We recommend a series of 3 procedures with approximately 6 weeks between each treatment. In the treatment of acne scars and other types of scarring we recommend a pre-treatment in the form of chemical peel prior to commencing skin-needling.
Skin-needling is extremely safe. Treatment simply stimulates and enhances your own body repair mechanisms and there are no chemicals, products or lasers delivered to the skin. It is not recommended if there are any medical conditions that might interfere with this process as healing may not occur as expected. As with any cosmetic procedure, treatment is contraindicated in pregnancy or breastfeeding.
Topical anesthetic cream is used to minimize any pain that is experienced during the procedure. Certain areas of the face (usually above the top-lip and around the eyes) can be quite uncomfortable. The practitioner will be talking to you during the procedure and if any area is particularly sensitive, then this area can be avoided. Most people find the procedure a little uncomfortable but not particularly painful.
Side effects are extremely rare as it is a very safe procedure. After treatment there will be some redness which usually resolves quickly. As it an injectable treatment, bruising can occur, but infrequently. Sometimes treatment can precipitate the development of spots or cold sores.
At Age Repair, we have combined micro needling treatments with the application of hyaluronic acid and other ingredients to rejuvenate the skin.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that is responsible for hydration and volume and when it is placed within the skin, creates a greater lift and rejuvenation and is ideal for areas like the décolletage.
