What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that uses fine needles to create tiny, evenly spaced micro-injuries in the skin. These micro-injuries trigger the body’s wound healing process, stimulating healthy tissue repair and resulting in a rejuvenated appearance by boosting your own collagen and elastin. One session of microneedling can give you back a whole year of collagen that you’ve lost. Microneedling can reduce wrinkles, pores, hyperpigmentation, and other texture irregularities. It’s even effective in targeting melanocytes responsible for melanin overproduction, leading to brighter, more even-toned skin.

At AE we use Dermalogica pro restore serum in our microneedling treatment as it designed to enhance results and minimize downtime. 

about the treatment

Frequently asked questions about Microneedling

How long is the treatment?

You will be booked in for an hour’s treatment. This includes a double cleanse, numbing, your microneedling session, and creams relevant to your skin type after treatment.

Pain scale?

We use a numbing agent to help with the pain. With the numbing most patients find this a comfortable treatment.

Down time?

You will need a 24-72 hour cool down period for this treatment. Due to the intensity of the microneedling you are usually left a little red/tight after treatment and depending on your skin this depends on how long it will take for the redness/tightness to subside.

When will I see Results?

Results are seen within the first week of treatment. We always recommend 3 sessions 4-6 weeks apart to get the best results.

I attended an event tonight hosted by Erin. We were welcomed in with Prosecco and cake, then made to feel at ease while we watched a demo of a new product that Erin is using in her salon, Aesthetics By Erin. No pressure was put upon us to spend any money and professionals were on hand to answer questions and offer advice. All in all, a pleasant evening was spent chatting and discovering potential new ideas for treatments. Erin was a delightful host and I look forward to more events in the future.

I recently was persuaded by a friend I work with to visit Aesthetics by Erin for a treatment, the premises are absolutely fantastic and Erin was extremely attentive. I’ll certainly be revisiting in a few months for a top up 🙂

Recently went in for a treatment, lovely clean clinic, Erin was very understanding and clear in explaining what would be happening. Will definitely be returning !!
I went to Erin recently with the goal and intent of still looking and keeping a natural looking Lip. Erin ensured me this could be achieved and instantly made me feel relaxed and at ease. I am so happy with my new lips. Subtle yet plumped! Highly Recommend.

Went to Erin for some facial treatments.From the moment you walk in she makes you feel relaxed and at ease. Erin advised me on what procedures would suit my face but most importantly she was honest with me. The aftercare she gave was excellent and I would recommend her to everyone.Thank you so much Erin and I will be back for another visit🙂.

I would highly recommend Erin. From the offset I have felt comfortable and confident with her and my results have been incredible! In an industry where there are so many people that practice with absolutely no medical experience it’s very reassuring to have a practitioner who is medically trained ♥️♥️

I have been clenching my jaw and grinding my teeth for years, which has caused me to have very strong masseter muscles . Which in turn, caused me to suffer from headaches and shooting pain. I would wake up in pain and after long days I would be inAgony. I would leave events early due to the discomfort and led me to rely on analgesia. After having the Botox I have not had a single headache, my face is less painful and I am able to sleep throughout the night. I wish I had done it sooner! Erin is such a brilliant practitioner who made me feel relaxed and explained everything in great depth. I would recommend her and the treatment to any suffers of headaches and TMJ!

Erin is an absolute master of eyebrow tinting and shaping. My eyebrows have never looked so good. As for the botox....I wish I'd done it earlier.Erin is so reassuring. She absolutely knows what she is doing. I love the fact she is also a nurse and feel completely safe in her hands. The procedure is painless and looks amazing. Thank you Erin

I go to Erin for eyebrow waxing and eyebrow tints and she is just the best. The waxing doesn’t hurt and she does an amazing job with the shape, the tint lasts ages too.

Recently visited Erin for a hydro facial. Booking in was easy and with clear instructions on how to find her. The facial itself was really relaxing, the environment and knowledge of Erin helped that, and my face felt refreshed and cleansed during and after the facial. I haven’t had my usual monthly breakout and I’m putting it down to the facial! My skin feels more plump than the usual dryness it. Thank you Erin, I will be back 😊
