Microneedling For Scars

Micro needling treatment

Micro needling, also known as collagen induction therapy is a non-invasive way to achieve facial rejuvenation. Fine needles create hundreds of tiny invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of the skin, stimulating the body’s natural wound healing process, resulting in increased collagen and elastin production. It also offers a less invasive and safer treatment for all types of scars as the treatment only targets the deeper layer of the dermis where it starts wound healing that supports new collagen growth.

Thanks Dr. Q!

Dr. Q has done my lip fillers and wrinkle reduction. Lots of people tell me I’m looking really well but my look is natural so they don’t always guess I’ve had any work done and that’s exactly what I wanted. Dr. Q listens well and therefore provides the look you want. Nice relaxed atmosphere in the clinic. Treatments are painless (I use anaesthetic cream for lip fillers). The clinic is clean and bright. Love my little visits!
