Introducing Micro Needling

How are you feeling today? Maybe you’ve got one or two more wrinkles than you’d like. Maybe you feel like your skin tone’s a little all over the place. Maybe you just want to spend a bit less time with makeup and more time with your friends. Don’t worry, you’ve come to the right place.

Clinically proven to stimulate the body’s natural collagen and elastin production, micro-needling is a great way to firm your skin and smooth away fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks and scarring caused by acne or chicken pox. At Tej & Co, we use two different types of micro-needling, both of which are safe, super-effective and designed to give you a more youthful, blemish-free complexion.

Micro-needling works by using tiny, precisely spaced needles to make imperceptibly small perforations into the top layer of your deeper skin. This causes your skin’s natural repair mechanisms to shift into high gear, producing collagen and elastin that repairs the micro-perforations and renews your skin.

We offer two types of safe, trusted and clinically proven micro-needling treatments: Collagen PIN and DermaFrac.

Collagen PIN has an adjustable needle length that allows us to vary the depth of penetration to easily treat different skin thicknesses, for example the thinner skin around your eyes and forehead or the thicker skin around your upper lip, cheeks, neck and upper body. We often combine this treatment with Dermalux LED light treatment to further stimulate collagen, suppress inflammation and reduce irritation. Collagen PIN has a slightly longer recovery period than DermaFrac – around 1-2 days.

DermaFrac involves gently cleansing with microdermabrasion to remove dead skin cells, before infusing the skin with a serum – typically a peptide, stem cells or vitamins – that’s designed to address specific skin problems. This treatment also uses Dermalux LED light treatment.

If you’re not sure which is right for you, don’t worry. We’ll discuss the benefits of both treatments with you in more detail at your consultation.

Either way, micro-needling is a more convenient, less disruptive alternative to more invasive skin peels and has a much shorter recovery time than laser resurfacing treatments, ablative surgery treatments or injectables.

At your appointment, our friendly, expert therapists will guide you through the treatment process in detail, but here’s a rough guide.

Collagen PIN treatment involves:

1. Applying a numbing cream to the affected area 30 minutes before treatment.
2. Cleansing the area and applying a sterile solution.
3. Gently gliding a sterile needle cartridge across your skin, which makes micro-perforations to the desired depth.
4. Treating the area with LED light therapy to further stimulate natural skin rejuvenation.

DermaFrac involves:

1. Cleansing the affected area with micro-dermabrasion to remove dead skin cells.
2. Rolling the micro-needle hand piece across the skin under a vacuum, which allows the serum to infuse your skin.
3. Applying a hydrating mask to the treated area.
4. Treating the area with LED light therapy to further stimulate natural skin rejuvenation.

A Collagen PIN treatment session typically takes around 60 minutes, while a DermaFrac session will take about 30 minutes.

At your consultation we’ll discuss how many sessions would be best for you. We’ll then put together a bespoke treatment plan, tell you what to expect pre- and post-treatment and answer any questions you may have.

Most people see an improvement within a few weeks, with continuous improvement up to six months after treatment as cell turnover reveals beautiful, rejuvenated skin.

If you are craving to spend less time on your skincare routine with minimal makeup in the mornings this is the right treatment for you. In general, micro-needling is suitable for both men and women of any age and is highly effective on all skin types. It’s particularly ideal for those aged over 25, the point at which collagen productions begins to slow, and is perfect for helping bring back a youthful look and a more happier, confident you.

The Proof

A controlled injury to the skin’s dermis & epidermis, which induces growth factors, new collagen and elastin. Using a sterile roller of fine needles to create many microscopic puncture wounds. The skin is infused with serum – a peptide, stem cell or cocktail of vitamins selected to address your skin concern, delivered through micro channels.
