What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation procedure that’s used to treat skin concerns by means of boosting collagen production. It involves a trained practitioner using a mechanical device to make multiple tiny microinjuries in your skin with sterile needles. Sometimes called 'collagen induction therapy', micro-needling treatment helps reduce the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks.
The Electronic DermaStamp used at Miss Amber Aesthetics is an award-winning clinical Microneedling device, proven to dramatically reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles and acne scarring, revealing tauter, brighter, fresh-looking skin.
Key Areas for Treatment:
Microneedling is usually performed on the face to target:

How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling stimulates your skin to make more collagen, the key component of the skin that is naturally lost over time. The microneedling device is passed over the skin by your medical practitioner, creating thousands of microscopic injuries to skin, and the body responds with a healing response, resulting in new, collagen-rich tissue. This new skin tissue is, in turn, more even in tone and texture. It’s normal for the skin to lose collagen via age or injury but by encouraging the skin to make new tissue, there may be more collagen after treatment, to help make the skin firmer.
Depending on depth of treatment, downtime for Microneedling is usually 3 - 5 days.
You might notice some redness, pin-prick marks in the days after the treatment - these will fade revealing brighter, tighter, collagen rich tissue.
Costs depend on the number of areas that your practitioner advises. As each treatment is fully personalised, the best way to obtain an idea of cost is to have a consultation with us.
Microneedling treatment costs typically range from £175 - £550 depending on your individual treatment plan.
The appointment time incorporates 30 minutes for the skin numbing cream to take effect - the Microneedling itself takes around treatment takes 15 minutes.
Microneedling is recommend a course of treatments, rather than a one off, to ensure consistently good results. We recommend leaving 6 - 8 weeks between treatments.
