Microneedling (collagen induction therapy) involves using fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of skin. The micro-injuries created stimulates the body’s natural healing processes, resulting in increased collagen and elastin production, which is the key to new, youthful-looking skin. Because of its ability to trigger the generation of new skin cells, dermatologists have found that a few sessions will noticeably reduce fine lines, crow’s feet, and deep wrinkles on the forehead.
Microneedling can also be used to reduce appearance of scars, blemishes, age spots, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, enlarged pores, acne and stretch marks. Here at Sanctuary Aesthetics we use SkinPen Precision (the first FDA approved microneedling device. We recommend this treatment every 6 weeks until you have reached your desired result.

What should I expect from my SkinPen® Precision treatment?
The treatment is super simple but it has dramatic results. We numb the area with topical cream, then we treat and hydrate your skin. Treatments can be as little as a 30 minute appointment. Not bad for quick results and high rewards! Although the area treated can be a little pink in some people, this resolves in a short amount of time meaning you can return to your day afterwards.
Is SkinPen® Precision Natural?
This treatment uses your own wound healing collagen for all year round dynamic results, all natural, organic with no chemical or artificial additives.
How long does it take to see the results?
On consultation we will advise you on how many sessions we would suggest. We always recommend a minimum of 3 treatments, 3 months apart as a minimum. As this is a natural process, results are not instant, results are best at around 6-9 months but results can be seen as early as 30 days post your first procedure.
Remember that everyone is different and results may take longer depending on your individual circumstances. We will always offer you advise and guidance on getting the most out of your treatments.
