Derived from the ancient Chinese practice of acupuncture, skin needling was developed in the 1990s by a team of European plastic surgeons, dermatologists and engineers. Their aim was to produce optimum results in skin enhancement and rejuvenation.
Micro needling combines mesotherapy practice and cosmetic medicine. At Duquessa, micro needling is performed using a derma pen. Multiple tiny needles safely pierce the skin and activate skin rejuvenation without causing epidermal damage.
Skin nourishing products are delivered directly into the skin through the needles of the derma pen to increase product penetration, cell turnover and effectiveness of value.
At Duquessa, we use the highest medical grade derma pen, available only to licensed medical professionals.
You will experience new epidermal growth, the proliferation of collagen, elastin and other skin tissue components creating a pronounced anti-ageing affect. The skin tightens, lifts and is rejuvenated with the healing of acne scars or wound scars, minimisation of pore size, improvement of stretch marks and the treatment of hair loss.
The derma pen is commonly used in Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, which involves extracting a small blood sample from the body and spinning in a centrifuge to separate plasma from your red cells. PRP combined with calcium chloride is then injected back into the treatment area setting off an accelerated healing process whereby the body starts to regenerate collagen in the treated area, improving skin quality.
Also known as a blood facial, this treatment was bought into the spotlight by Kim Kardashian.
Another name for PRP therapy is the vampire facelift. Drawn from mythology, the legend of the vampire dates back to Ancient Greek and Roman immortals using blood to achieve eternal youth.
Whether you are inspired by ancient traditions or trust modern science, the dermapen is an effective tool in revealing, enhancing and protecting your skin.
