How does the treatment work?
Professional skin needling creates thousands of micro medical needle columns into the skin, each one penetrates the epidermal layers, stimulating the skin to naturally regenerate and repair itself. Immediately following treatment the tiny micro-holes will close and the skin will start its natural healing process. In the weeks following the procedure the skin will start to repair and regenerate itself below the surface of the dermis, forming new collagen, stimulating new skin cells, remodelling the collagen matrix, enhancing the lower levels of the skin, the process will continue over the next few months leaving you with smoother brighter rejuvenated skin. Treatment is very prescriptive to your concerns as the device is very precise and fine-tuned which allows your practitioner to accurately control the EDS treatment and the intensity throughout, adjusting the needle depth and speed based on the area and condition of the skin allowing for maximum results.
There are a number of treatment benefits to be had for EDS treatment. The mechanism of creating tiny microchannels in the skin stimulates the body’s wound healing process. This will stimulate the production of collogen and elastin. These essential proteins will help to improve the dermal structure of the skin, thus improving the skins elasticity and firmness. This will result in a reduction of the appearance of scars, stretch marks, fine lines and winkles, while improving the skins tone and texture and minimising concerns such as open pores. The treatment will improve the circulation to the skin, resulting in a much brighter radiant complexion.

Treatment safety and side effects
Here at Staffordshire Skin & Laser we are a medical led clinic and only use EDS Rejuvenate for professional skin needling as this device offers the highest standard quality sterile needles and has been through the strictest quality control system to ensure a safe and thorough procedure. Sub optimal needling devices can result in excessive skin trauma and potential scarring.
How many treatments will I need?
On average a course of 3-5 treatments are recommended, spaced 4- 6 weeks apart, allowing for new cell production, collagen and elastin stimulation and skin healing. Some patients will require more than this to achieve optimum results.
When will I see results?
As we are waiting for the skin to naturally repair and rejuvenate itself, results tend to show around 6 weeks post procedure and will continue for several months. Additional treatments will further enhance your treatment results.

How does treatment feel?

What to expect during treatment
Prior to treatment your skin will be numbed with a topical anaesthetic, to help you remain comfortable throughout the procedure. The treatment takes around 30 minutes depending on the area that is to be treated.
What to expect after treatment?

Your practitioner will apply products following the procedure to calm the area and will recommend what to use at home until the redness subsides, this will also include the recommendation of a broad-spectrum SPF protection to be applied daily.
