Microneedling my neck and décolletage with SkinPen Precision

Clinical microneedling is an increasingly popular treatment for all-round improvement of the skin. Needling stimulates the wound-healing response in the skin, which results in the growth of new collagen which makes skin firmer, and improves skin hydration and reduces pigmentation and sun damage. It’s good for the face, the hands, and also for the neck and décolletage area.

What’s it like to have a treatment? How much does it hurt, and what do you look like immediately afterwards?  I went to try the SkinPen microneedling treatment with expert practitioner Heidi Oldershaw, so watch the video to find out the answers.

SkinPen is the only microneedling device currently on the market which achieved zero contamination between treatments. That’s significant, really significant—especially when you consider that microneedling can draw blood. I’d recommend heading over to their website, which is full of informative blogs and news articles about microneedling and what it can be used to treat, as well as many videos of interviews with practitioners about SkinPen’s patented technology.

 

Do delve into anything about cross-contamination, the problem that SkinPen has cleverly managed to solve through the development of special cartridges which go onto their pen. Given the lack of regulation in the industry, it’s always refreshing to see manufacturers leading the way in patient safety.

ABOUT

Alice Hart-Davis is an award-winning beauty journalist and author. For nearly 20 years she has been reporting on the aesthetic cosmetic procedures colloquially known as tweakments, and has trialled countless procedures in order to review them.

Alice has won many awards for her work, though none for services as a cosmetic guinea pig. She attends aesthetics conferences around the world and spends a lot of time catching up with the doctors, surgeons, dentists, nurses and the companies behind the technology in this fast-expanding field, the better to understand the tweakments on offer.

Over the years Alice has seen — and experienced first-hand — plenty of bad treatments, and understands the many problems that beset the aesthetics industry, from the lack of regulation to the rising incidence of body dysmorphia among cosmetic patients and practitioners.

Despite this, she remains an advocate of good, understated cosmetic work — the sort which goes undetected and unremarked, because it doesn’t lead to weird-looking hamster cheeks or frozen foreheads. She is also still enthusiastic about the potential of tweakments for making people look that bit better, which in turn makes them feel better about themselves and better able to get on with the rest of their lives.

She lives in London, a short bicycle ride from Harley Street, with her husband and a lively Jack Russell terrier. Her three young adult children take a dim view of tweakments, but accept that these are something she does for work (and are too kind to use the word, ‘vanity’).
