Microneedling is suitable for most skin types and can be used all over the body to stimulate the natural production of new collagen and elastin, thereby tightening skin, reducing appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and smoothing scars in just a few short treatments. CE medical dermapen; single use sterile fine needle cartridges gently puncture the top layer of the skin as it glides over the treated area. Customised solutions used for Nimue clients. For non-Nimue clients Clinicare mesotherapy solutions will be used specific to the individual’s skin concerns.

**For clients with a history of herpes simplex (cold sores) microneedling has the potential to trigger cold sore recurrence. Therefore, it is advisable to speak to your GP/Pharmacist regarding taking antiviral prophylaxis (e.g. 400 mg Acyclovir) from 2 days prior to the microneedling and continued for 5 days following to reduce the risk of recurrent herpes infection. Any existing lesion must heal completely before undergoing microneedling. **

Those on oral contraceptive or HRT are advised oestrogen and progesterone may increase risk of pigmentation and/or also make clients more prone to breakouts and excessive dryness. A cautious approach is required for those with a history of hyperpigmentation or those with darker skin.

Clients are advised to maintain a healthy lifestyle for optimum results during a course of treatments (good diet, stay hydrated, moderate exercise, avoid excessive alcohol consumption, use vitamins after seeking medical advice if lacking). Exercise to be avoided on day of treatment. Smokers are advised that results will be limited so if smoking cessation unlikely they may wish to seek medical advice on their suitability of taking 1000mg of vitamin C daily.
