What does a normal treatment at BSC look like?
Our Registered Nurses and skin technicians use Dermapen 4 (the GOLD STANDARD in needling devices) to trigger targeted growth factors for building new and healthy collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. With this treatment, it’s all about expert precision, technique and timing. Sessions are an hour in length, and include cleansing and a take home aftercare hydration treatment.
Collagen is present throughout the body, yet especially within the skin, bones and connective tissues. As a protein in all of the bodily organs and tissues, collagen provides the matrix that sustains the body’s structure. Its main function is to sustain tendons, skin and cartilage. It provides integrity, firmness and elasticity to their structures.
How does skin needling really work?
This treatment is scientifically proven to target the cells that are responsible for hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin production. Within your skin lies the ‘epidermis’ and ‘dermis’. Skin needling produces channels at a microscopic level within these two layers, stimulating the skin’s natural healing process by regenerating skin cells. Additionally, this treatment reduces hyper pigmentation, treats scarring and encourages the formation of collagen and elastin, improving overall structure, function and appearance of the treated area.
Is it safe?
The term ‘skin needling’ often frightens people. We can assure you that your safety is our priority. The Bluetooth technology and precision of the Dermapen 4 ensures no compromise to your safety! Our Registered Nurses use a topical numbing cream to ensure your treatment is pain free. This also allows us to get to the level of the skin we need to for best results without compromising your comfort.
