How does it work?

Micro-needling creates thousands of micro-channels (microscopic holes) at a rate of 1600 per second. These wounds stimulate your skin to heal boosting fibrin and collagen production without relying on heat or chemicals,

 

The SkinPen used at Bonds Aesthetics follows 3 of the known stages of wound healing to achieve the optimum result. 

 

Inflammation

SkinPen’s microneedles pierce the skin, triggering your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow, and begin to create new tissue.

Proliferation

The micro-wounds are reconstructed with new cells called granulation cells that include collagen proteins, while also creating new blood vessels.

 

Remodelling

Following on from the proliferation stage the micro-wounds are replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels which are comprised of rich collagen and elastin proteins. These proteins improve skin youthfulness, complexion and texture.

Who is micro-needling good for?

Micro-needling is an excellent treatment for anyone who wants to improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and other skin concerns listed above. The aim of micro-needling is to stimulate collagen growth, which helps make the skin’s appearance more even, youthful, and vibrant.
