The Ivy Medispa

As we age, collagen and elastin synthesis in our skin decreases. From the age of 30, it begins a process of loss of those fibers and at 60 years old its production is decreased by 36%.

Micro-needling is a procedure that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier and younger looking skin.

Benefits Of Micro-needling Include:

  • Natural skin rejuvenation method -creates a controlled skin injury which in turn ‘helps the skin help itself’.
  • Boosts collagen production for plumper skin
  • Treats sun damage, acne scarring, lines and wrinkles and stretchmarks
  • Boost skin hydration
  • Restore radiance
  • Increases penetration of active serums and products to the deepest layers of the skin (transdermical mesotherapy).

The Nanopore Stylus 1 is a revolutionary electronic micro-needling device that is proven to be less uncomfortable, with minimal to no downtime and provides greater results than a traditional mechanical roller.

The depth of the needle penetration can be altered during treatment to maximise results whilst minimising discomfort.

Benefits of micro-needling with the Nanopore Stylus 1 include:

  • Fast treatment
  • Does not produce skin lesions
  • Skin improvement after 1 treatment
  • Transports active ingredients to the deepest layers of the skin.
  • Minimal discomfort

Immediately after your micro-needling treatment you will look as though you have moderate sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This will start to subside after 1 to 2 hours and will normally recover within the same day with only slight redness the following day.

Your Skin Practitioner will advise you on what to do following treatment. We advise that make up is not applied for 24 hours after the procedure and a strong UVA/UVB sunscreen is recommended following the treatment.

Following treatment your skin will appear more radiant and refreshed. It can take up to six weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair are seen and the process will continue over the following months, providing you with a natural and long lasting enhancement. The results from a micro-needling treatment are permanent. As it is a repair of the skin it does not revert after a given time period. Micro-needling for fine lines and wrinkles will improve the skin; however it will not stop skin ageing and new lines forming.
