Microneedling is a very versatile treatment and can address a number of skin concerns, including scarring, stretch marks, wrinkles and overall skin quality. Microneedling can be combined with products such as Vitamin C and Growth Factor Serums, to improve overall skin quality. Microneedling uses tiny needles to puncture the skin. This creates small wounds to the skin, which signals to your own body to repair the skin by producing collagen and elastin.
Collagen and elastin are proteins responsible for skin health, but they deplete as we age, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. As a consequence of triggering your bodies natural defences, the thickness of your skin is increased, which is why it not only reduces the appearance roof fine lines and wrinkles, but also stretch marks and scars.
A small handheld device with six micro needles within a concealed sterile single use cartridge is manually applied to the skin at the same time a serum is applied. The microneedles create tiny holes within your skin, which allows the active ingredients in the serum to penetrate deeper down and work from the inside out.
At EOS Aesthetics, we have 2 options for you to choose from, the standard EDS revitalise treatment comes with a hyaluronic acid serum which we use during the treatment to hydrate the skin and the deepest level whilst stimulating the collagen and elastin cells or we have the EDS revitalise with growth factors where we use growth factors encapsulated in a Hyaluronic Acid serum with added vitamins to take anti-ageing a step higher!
We use only Genuine Dermaroller devices which are all medical devices with CE marks and are all single use – don’t compromise on quality, safety or comfort.
Frequently asked questions
Why should I have this treatment?
You should have this treatment if you are concerned about ageing, you want to prevent ageing or want to reduce your fine lines, wrinkles, dull and lifeless skin.

Treatment time gaps should be every 2 weeks and the results even after one treatment is that your skin will look brighter and more radiant and after 3 sessions your skin will show visible signs of reduced ageing.
Will it work for my skin type?
This treatment can be performed on all skin types! As this is an overall rejuvenation treatment its well suited to many skin concerns.
EDS revitalise is great for signs of early ageing and can also be used for preventative anti-ageing. This treatment is also beneficial if you are concerned with your eye area looking dull, fine lines starting to appear and general dry skin around the eyes.
Collagen stops being produced in your mid 20’s and this is when the ageing process really starts to set in. Prevention is better than cure and having this treatment will not only reduce your ageing it will also keep you skin feeling and looking plump and hydrated due to healthy collagen cells meaning more Hyaluronic acid will be produced.
Prior to the treatment, please advise the clinic of any recent sun exposure, or application of fake tan. Avoid using retinol, glycolic or salycylic acid products for 1 – 2 weeks prior to treatment.
What happens during the treatment?
During the treatment we will start by cleansing your skin and we will then use an antiseptic solution. We then will apply the serum to your skin and gently use the needle technology to work the serum into the skin. After all areas have been covered we will apply some aftercare products to protect the skin.
What does the treatment feel like?
The treatment has little to no discomfort. The vibration of the machine means it feels much like an electric toothbrush being passed over the skin. The whole treatment from start to finish takes around 45 –60 minutes.
This treatment will leave your skin instantly radiant. You may be slightly flushed immediately after treatment however this will subside after a few hours. Your skin will start to feel smoother and hydrated over the course of the week following on from treatment.
You must avoid sun exposure for 2 weeks after the treatment and use a broad spectrum sun protection factor such as Heliocare SPF daily. Avoid sauna’s, steam rooms, swimming and the gym for up to 72 hours after treatment. Avoid using acid-based products for up to 1 week after treatment. Mineral make up can be applied after having the treatment performed.
