The Skin Pen
The SkinPen by Bellus Medical is the world’s first microneedling equipment accepted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Clinically attested to safely and efficiently treat facial acne scars, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles for a smoother, firmer and more toned skin for ages 22 and over.
The SkinPen is an aesthetic process which involves safely piercing the skin with tiny sterile probes in order to induce the production of collagen and elastin fibres, in a controlled, sterile environment. The probes enter the skin vertically without tearing or scratching the tissue, causing inflammation and triggering a wound healing response. With as few as three non-invasive and affordable treatments spaced a month apart, you can improve your skin’s appearance for up to six months from your last treatment. Step out with confidence.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is one of the most sophisticated technologies available to us – we use a fractional system. It removes very small areas of the top layers of skin, helping to repair areas of scarring. At Hilton Skin Clinics, we use the Harmony iPixel, manufactured by Alma Lasers. During the procedure, we’ll apply a local anaesthetic and a numbing cream to the treatment area to keep you comfortable. Using the device, the practitioner will then deliver very targeted pulses of light to the treatment area, removing very thin layers of damaged skin cells in pixel-sized zones, whilst leaving untouched skin around each ‘dot’ of damage which will stimulate the natural healing process.
The number of treatments required differs from patient to patient, but typically, treatment courses are 3-6 sessions long, with 4-6 weeks in-between each treatment. The final result could then last for several years.
You might also experience some discomfort and soreness but your practitioner will discuss your aftercare regime with you following treatment.
We offer LED Phototherapy for the treatment of acne, but it can also be used to treat scarring. Certain pulses of light can be absorbed by the skin, stimulating a healing response which in turn can promote cell renewal and cell regrowth, creating new, smoother skin. LED Phototherapy, which uses Light Emitting Diodes is pain-free and can be used in conjunction with a number of different treatments.
