What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that uses fine, sterilised needles to prick the skin on your face, stimulating a repair response in the body and encouraging new tissue and collagen to form. This can smooth, plump and tone your skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, large pores, scars, acne and other imperfections.

Benefits of microneedling

Rejuvenates skin

Microneedling smooths, firms and plumps your skin, encouraging collagen formation and improving skin tone.

Quick and effective

Microneedling is a quick and straightforward procedure with little downtime afterwards.

Minimises imperfections

Microneedling can reduce the appearance of scars, acne and other blemishes.

At Ria, we’re thrilled to use Dermapen 4, the latest technology in microneedling. This smart handheld device glides over the skin, instantly creating millions of fine, vertical channels. These micro-injuries trigger a natural process of repair, increasing the production of collagen and elastin and visibly improving a wide range of skin concerns.

In addition, these channels can carry up to 80% more topical nutrients deeper into the skin. This means that microneedling can be combined with other complementary treatments such as Uber peels and PRP [add link to PRP page], boosting the efficacy of these procedures.

Microneedling with PRP

PRP [stands for platelet-rich plasma, and is an injectable treatment that uses your own blood to stimulate collagen production. When combined with microneedling, research has shown that PRP can speed up the healing process of tissues and boost the effects of the needling treatment.
