Microneedling in Liverpool

Collagen induction therapy, also known as microneedling RF or skin needling, is a cosmetic procedure that involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles. CIT should be separated from other contexts in which microneedling devices are used on the skin, e.g. transdermal drug delivery, vaccination.


Here at AK Aesthetics, we provide a range of cosmetic treatments, including microneedling. Microneedling RF or skin needling is a type of collagen induction therapy that involves a dermaroller procedure, which uses tiny needles to prick the skin. This cosmetic procedure makes use of the Innopen medical device that contains microneedles thinner than just one hair. When the device penetrates the skin, hundreds of microscopic punctures are form in order for your body’s natural healing process to take action. It induces the natural role of collagen, which fills the fine lines and scars.

The microneedling method means that you can avoid chemicals, fillers, injections and lasers and still benefit from skin revitalisation naturally. Unlike other skin rejuvenation methods, it doesn’t burn or dissolve your skin, nor does it abrade or scrape it. The Innopen also has the benefit of permitting a deeper infusion of topical applications (for example, peptides, anti-oxidants, hyaluronic acid and hair growth formulas) making it even more effective in treating your skin.

The Innopen is made up of a barrel that mechanically pushes the topical serums inside the holes, penetrating under the skin into the tiny micro channels that are created by the needles. Whilst many other cosmetic products are made up on molecules too big to penetrate into the skin, resting only on the surface, here no active ingredients are wasted, so you can benefit from their full potential. Combining your skin care product routines with regular microneedle therapy, will also help you make full use of these. If you’re looking for microneedling near you, get in touch with AK Aesthetics in Liverpool in the UK for more details.



What is Innopen?

The Innopen is a medical device with tiny micro needles that are thinner than your own hair! When the needles penetrate the skin, hundreds of microscopic “pin pricks” are created. As your skin heals underneath, it uses your own collagen to fill the “valleys” of fine lines and scars naturally without removing the top layer of skin. Collagen is what your body produces to keep your skin youthful and healthy.

Microneedling is a natural skin revitalisation method that fills and softens lines and scars. It does not use chemicals, fillers, injections, or lasers. The Innopen doesn’t burn your skin, dissolve it, or abrade and scrape it. The Innopen does not inject serums or solutions; it only permits deeper infusion of topical applications (e.g. peptides, anti-oxidants, hyaluronic acid and hair growth formulas) thereby increasing the product effectiveness.

Once the tiny micro channels are created by the needles, the barrel itself has a unique way of mechanically pushing the topical serums inside the holes and finally under the skin. It is a well-known fact amongst experts that a lot of active ingredients in normal cosmetics are wasted because the molecules are too big to penetrate into the skin and therefore just sit on the surface with no effect.

However, if you wish to benefit much more from your cosmetics and their ingredients, the best possible solution is to combine your skin care products with regular microneedle therapy.
