What is Microneedling and how does it work?
The concept of microneedling is not a new science and dates back to the 1950s. The idea is based on the skin's ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage. In this case, thousands of minute wounds are created in the skin by highly precise, sterile needles. Immediately after the injury occurs, the skin disperses old damaged connective tissue and replaces it with new tissue.
RP2 microneedling allows for controlled induction of the skin's self-repair mechanism by creating micro "injuries" in the skin which triggers new collagen synthesis yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. The result is smoother, firmer, and younger-looking skin and fainter scars/stretch marks.

Can anyone have the treatment?
Although the treatment is safe for all skin types, there are certain medical conditions that exclude you from having a treatment. These include active acne vulgaris, rosacea, active skin infections, raised keloid scars, actinic keratosis, and other non-melanoma & melanoma skin cancers, eczema, psoriasis, sebaceous hyperplasia, and open wounds. If you suffer from severe cold sores, you may wish to take your cold sore medication before each treatment. We will discuss with you any health concerns you may have before you commence the treatment.
