SkinPen Precision

30th January 2018

The ideal way to treat signs of ageing, wrinkles and scarring to the face and neck, SkinPen Precision uses collagen induction therapy to create beautiful looking skin, leaving you looking and feeling your best.

 The next generation in micro-needling, SkinPen stimulates the skin, boosting its ability to repair itself. The treatment is effective on the face, neck and decolletage and is safe for all skin types.

How does SkinPen Precision work?

As we age, the structure of our skin naturally deteriorates, which generally leads to a loss in elasticity, uneven texture and enlarged pores, alongside lines and wrinkles.

SkinPen Precision creates micro-injuries within the skin’s surface, which then trigger our natural healing process. As the skin heals, collagen is formed, leading to smoother, more youthful looking skin.

Any skincare product applied to the skin after  - or even during - a SkinPen Precision treatment will be absorbed into the deep layers of your skin, increasing its efficacy and providing faster, more visible results.

Hygienic and safe, SkinPen Precision has a single use design, covered with a disposable Bio-Sleeve, removing the possibility of any cross-contamination.

How does SkinPen Precision differ to derma rolling?

Manual derma rolling is generally less effective than the more advanced SkinPen Precision. A class 11 device which was engineered in the USA, the 14-tip needle head produces 98,000 micro-injuries per minute, whereas a derma roller produces around 400 per second.

The needles of a derma roller enter and exit the skin at an angle, creating lateral ‘tears’ in the epidermis. This is more painful than SkinPen Precision, which enters the skin at 90 degrees. The device can also easily treat hard to reach areas around the nose, eyes and mouth, which a derma roller cannot.

How long does a SkinPen treatment take?

A single SkinPen treatment lasts around 30 minutes and can be performed at any time throughout the year. For the best results, we recommend you have at least three procedures, with an optimum number of six.

Are there any side effects after a SkinPen treatment?

The most you should notice after a SkinPen is a level of redness similar to mild sunburn. This should fade fully within 48 hours.

To find out more about SkinPen Precision or to book your treatment, just get in touch with the clinic.

For a limited time, we are offering a special launch price of £300 for a half-face treatment using SkinPen Precision, combined with light therapy. You can also take advantage of a special launch offer of £900 for a course of three treatments. You can choose whether to treat your lower face or upper face, depending on your areas of concern.

The launch offer ends on 19th February 2018, so book now to avoid disappointment.

Thank you for working your magic and making me look years younger! Also a big thank you to your team for all their help and support. I love my new face!

Karolina is always a joy to work with - kind, considerate and very professional and creating an aura of trust. She makes the Ulthera treatment painless and that's not an easy task!

I have my Botox with Karolina. She is exceptionally knowledgeable and advises me on what would look good and not so good on my face. She is a person I can trust!

"I was very happy with my treatment experience. Mr Karidis , staff and facilities were excellent. I am very pleased with the results and would not hesitate to recommend Mr Karidis and his clinic."

"I am only three days into the recovery of my gynecomastia procedure, and already it has changed my life. I travelled from Cardiff to London to have this procedure and it was by far cheaper than having it done in my local area. Furthermore, Karidis' reputation exceeds expectations. I look forward to my follow up consultation so Karidis can see how he has changed my life. Communication from Karidis and his team - 5 star Professionalism - 5 star Results - 5 star."

For my first Velashape III treatment, Maxine made me feel really comfortable and explained exactly how the treatment would go and any after-effects I might have (I have had none). The process was smooth and painless and actually kind of relaxing. Most importantly, I can already see a MAJOR difference on the cellulite on my legs and butt. I am seriously impressed!

"My entire experience for an abdominoplasty and breast augmentation operation was faultless from a professional and caring team. I cannot recommend Mr Karidis enough from the consultation, in establishing what I wanted, to his skilled work. I am absolutely delighted with the results."

"A seven week recovery journey with a couple of little detours, but navigated with care by Mr Karidis, Suzi & Martina. Explanations, reassurance & advice given from first consultation, day of operation, day one post op. and at all subsequent clinic visits, along with a good dose of friendly chit chat & laughter, (Always a good medicine!). Thank you Mr Karidis & team. No regrets here."

Brilliant consultation... I was very impressed with my consultation with Mr Karidis. Mr Karidis made me feel very comfortable and answered all my questions.

Outstanding in every way This is my second breast augmentation with Mr Karidis - my first experience was amazing as were the results! Second time around and once again my experience was faultless. The whole team are amazing from front of desk and Rose, to the lovely nurses pre and post-op! The after care given, which is also important, is second to none and I cannot recommend Mr Karidis enough. Thank you so much for all you have done for me and giving me back my confidence!
