SkinPen helps to build collagen. This improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, scars and pores. Over a course of treatment, you can expect for smoother, more radiant, younger-looking skin.
This treatment creates controlled micro trauma in the skin to harness the skin’s own healing processes. The result is improvement in skin tone, clarity and firmness. It also helps reduce acne scarring.
At ORA, we use Skinpen for its safety and results. It is the very first FDA-approved microneedling device and the gold-standard device trusted by leading dermatologists, aestheticians, and other skincare professionals.
Microneedling can be carried out as a standalone treatment or combined with Celluma LED, PRP and corrective peels. For filter-free skin we recomend the ORA Glow boost treatment which combines the effects of microneedling with a brightening glycolic peel, PRP and Celluma LED.
SkinPen is the very first FDA-approved microneedling device. It is the leading device for microneedling trusted by leading dermatologists, aestheticians, and other skincare professionals.
The treatment takes approximately 30 minutes but we book you for an hour so that there is plenty time for the topical anaesthetic to work prior to treatment. Prior to the procedure, your skin will be cleansed and topical anaesthetic will be used to minimise discomfort during treatment. The SkinPen is applied to the skin and glides across the treatment areas. The depth of treatment is adjustable, so it is safe to use on the entire face, as well as neck and even hands. Even the most delicate area around the eyes and around the mouth can be treated with minimal discomfort.
The procedure is not painless, but most patients rate the pain 2 out of 10!
SkinPen is very well tolerated but do keep in mind that your skin will be red and will feel tight, a little like a sunburn. For most people the redness subsides significantly within 24 hours. You won’t be able to apply any products including makeup for up to 48 hours. You may notice some swelling especially around the eye area. This can last for up to a few days. Your skin will feel tender for a day or two. You may experience some flaking that commences on day 3 and can last for up to a week.
Your skin will appear more radiant within two weeks of treatment but best results are seen six months after completion of course of treatment.
We recommend a course of 4-6 treatments with one treatment every 4-6 weeks.
The best results are seen within 3-6 months after the completion of the course of treatment. The reason for this is that it takes your body time to build collagen.
Fine Lines & Wrinkles
Pre & Post Care
At ORA, the aim is not to look younger, but to look and feel good about yourself through every stage of life. We believe in positive ageing and the Ora Method is based on signature techniques inspired by the philosophy of restoration and preservation.
Preservation and respect of your natural inherent beauty coupled with the restoration and reversal of signs of ageing ensures natural and untouched results.
Our consultations set out the initial treatment journey. We view our patient relationships as a continuum and work together to help ensure your journey stays on track and that your goals are realised.
We are careful and artistic in the way we apply our treatments. We approach every client holistically and we don’t believe in results that are obvious. The ORA method leaves clients looking fresh, radiant, refreshed. We are the antithesis of frozen, puffy and overfilled results.
The ORA team is doctor led and all clients will meet with one of our aesthetic doctors at the start of their journey. There are four aesthetic doctors at ORA, each with an unrivalled commitment to the holistic approach we are known for and to achieving natural beautiful results. Each member of the team was invited to join ORA because of their level of expertise. We understand that a team of experts is stronger than its individual members alone. We are a truly collaborative team and believe that the best results are achieved by a multidisciplinary team approach., We often discuss treatment plans, share knowledge and treat our clients collaboratively. This means that our patients uniquely benefit from our combined knowledge and experience and we remain at the cutting edge of aesthetic medicine.
We have been lucky to build a loyal patient base largely developed through word of mouth and personal recommendations. We treat a range of people both women and men of all different ages. Whether it's the professional who wants to access innovate skin treatments with little downtime, the new mom who wants to give herself a selfcare boost, the bride/groom/mother of the bride with an important upcoming event, the busy mother/father squeezing in a moment between school drops, the post menopausal woman who wants to feel like herself again - we have looked after them all. The uniting sentiment between our Ora patients is the appreciation of our dedication to artistic, natural and beautiful results. Our clients return for our signature techniques that never leave them overdone, but rather, reveal their best selves.
