Micro needling treatment available at Dermacore Clinic Telford, is vastly used in the aesthetics industry as it is simple safe and effective, covering a wide range of skin concerns Microneedling also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a proven skin rejuvenation technique that involves the use of a short needle to penetrate microscopic channels into the skin. This stimulates superficial collagen through the natural wound healing process. Microneedling is used to help a variety of skin concerns, including uneven skin tone or texture, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, stretch marks and pigmentation from sun damage.
Microneedling is a clinically proven treatment. Compared to other techniques of skin rejuvenation, Micro needling in particular is safe for even, dark skin types, as these skin types are prone to post inflammatory hyper pigmentation with other techniques that cause damage to the epidermis.

How does micro needling work?
Micro needling is also known as collagen induction therapy, the procedure of this treatment involves repetitive micro injury through punctures with sterilized microneedles into the upper layers of the skin to essentially promote a would healing effect. This is in order to promote blood flow and circulation in the area, but more importantly to produce collagen and elastin, to bring new cells, regenerate existing damaged cells and to repair the fibre network . In this treatment an ampule of serum is applied to the skin that corresponds to the specific skin pathology, improving the efficacy of the treatment of that specific concern by pushing the product deeper into the skin via the microneedles. At Dermacore Clinic, we have specific treatment serums that can help acne scarring, skin rejuvenation, dry skin, anti-aging, pigmentation and stretch marks.
How is microneedling treatment performed?
A Micro needling pen is used for Micro needling treatments, which works by an insertion of disposable end which contains a multitude of needles, arranged in rows, the pen also has variable speeds.
How many treatments do you need?
Clinical studies have found that acne scarring has great efficacy with Micro needling treatments with a series of 2-5 treatments in 4-week intervals creating improvements ranging from 50% to 70% with minimal downtime (Alster, 2017). This is due to micro injuries causing a wound cascade and creating growth factors, connective tissue and fibroblasts. Old collagen is denatured and reformed. Studies show an 400% increase in collagen after a course of Micro needling treatments (Singh, 2016).
How does microneedling feel?
Most clients report that microneedling feels like mild scratching with a slight pin-like sensation, and that it is tolerable. However, if deeper needle lengths are required or if you are sensitive, an anaesthetic cream (numbing cream) is applied to reduce sensitivities for comfort.
Microneedling Results –
Although one treatment is great for temporary skin rejuvenation, to see most effective incredible results a treatment course of 3-6 treatments is recommended with 4-week intervals, as the treatment progresses, the needle depth does also increase, from 0.5mm to 1mm on fatty areas of the face such as the cheeks. Improvements ranging from 50% to 70% can be achieved with this revolutionary treatment.
