What is micro-needling or collagen induction therapy?
Derma FNS The Latest Revolutionary Treatment
Fractional lasers create vertical channels into the skin maintaining the integrity of the skin surface, but stimulating dermal processes leading to skin tightening and remodelling.
At the So Be Well clinic, we use the Derma FNS™ micro needling pen. This device uses multiple needles that vertically pierce the skin to create similar vertical channels which are designed to achieve the same effect, with minimal epidermal damage. It is thought that it is the greater density of channels that leads to enhanced results over dermal rollers.
Derma FNS™ uses vertical insertions to create thousands of tiny holes in the skin causing the release of serum growth factors which stimulate the breakdown of old fibrous collagen and stimulate new collagen and elastin development.
Derma FNS™ results are comparable in effect to ablative treatments such as Fraxel, IPL and Laser Resurfacing but at a fraction of the cost and with much less downtime and minimal damage to the integrity of the skin.
A course of Derma FNS™ Micro-Needling treatments leads to a reduction of scars and stimulates skin rejuvenation with improved skin texture, firmness and hydration.

After treatment you will look as though you have moderate sunburn and your skin may feel warmer and tighter than usual. This is normal and should subside after 1 to 2 hours, and will normally recover the same day or within 24 hours. Any undesirable post treatment reddening or discomfort can be controlled with Tebiskin® Sooth or Sensicure® which rapidly reduces redness and irritation.
