4 things to check before your next Micro-needling session

4 things to check before your next Micro-needling session

It has been brought to our attention (through our patients and a variety of publications and articles) that some micro needling pens have been banned in the UK.

Following yesterday’s announcement from the MHRA, that Microneedling pens:

Dermapen 3 and Dermapen Cryo Sterile single-use needle cartridge tips for Dermapen 3 ARE AT RISK OF INFECTION. 

The MHRA has stated, “Do not use affected devices as they have been manufactured to unknown standards and their safety cannot be verified”.

This has affected many clinics (not the Cambridge Clear Beauty) so we deemed it necessary to inform the public of some safety precautions they can take prior to their next micro-needling treatment.  The report can be downloaded fully here.

Here at CCB, we use only SkinPen Precision which ensures patient safety first. The SkinPen® Precision has been granted clearance and marketing authorisation by the FDA for its medical grade micro-needling device used exclusively by healthcare professionals. This is the first and only micro-needling device in the industry to receive this important designation from the FDA.  This implement offers the safest method of collagen induction therapy.  With it being the world’s most advanced micro-needling device, it allows 3000 times more penetration than a topical solution because it is perforating deeper and renewing the cells beneath.  Unlike a traditional facial, micro-needling works past the surface of the skin, which grants pro-longed results, leaving the skin more youthful, smoother and tighter.

Cambridge Clear Beauty uses SkinPen UK precision only for its micro-needling treatments. The total treatment time is 90 minutes (this includes the application of a topical anaesthetic cream 30 minutes prior treatment for optimal patient comfort).

So let’s have a look at 5 important things you should consider (and most definitely spend some well deserved time looking into) prior to your next treatment with a Micro-needling Pen in the United Kingdom and beyond.

  • Is your pen free of cross contamination ?

When done properly, micro-needling is relatively risk-free and produces results with little to no downtime. The safest, most effective micro-needling devices use sterile, disposable needle cartridges that reduce the risk of cross-contamination

  • Is your pen provided by a reliable company?

Bellus Medical Creates “Gateway” Micro-needling, Platelet-Rich Plasma PRP, and Light-Activated Cream Innovations That Draw New Patients to Leading Physician-Directed Practices Around the World.

  • Is the Pen itself FDA Approved?

SKINPEN is Globally the ONLY FDA Approved Microneedling Pen.

  • What Pen does your clinic use?

Cambridge Clear Beauty uses SkinPen UK precision only for its micro-needling treatments. The total treatment time is 90 minutes (this includes the application of a topical anaesthetic cream 30 minutes prior treatment for optimal patient comfort).

Also, feel free to take advantage of our 20% discount on all booked micro-needling appointments!!! A Micro-needling Treatment is normally priced at £250 and a series of treatment is advised to achieve optimal results. A quotation for Stretch marks will be given on the day of consultation as it is dependant on the size of the affected area
