Angela uses a technique called Multirepanni Collegen Actuation (MCA) Therapy which is a form of skin therapy, developed to improve the feel, firmness and appearance of scars, improve the look of wrinkles or act as an anti-ageing tool. It is also utilised when working on scarring resulting from surgery to correct a cleft lip.
The treatment is carried out with the use of a specialist digital medical tattooing machine and uses a method called a dry needle technique (meaning there is no pigment/colour used). It consists of a needle that enters the surface layers of the skin to stimulate blood flow. The process causes minuscule punctures, which in turn create channels that trigger the body to produce collagen, melanin and elastin, which fill the wounds – promoting further healing.
Multitrepanni Collagen Actuation (MCA) FAQs
A topical anaesthetic is applied to the scar area, which means you should only feel a slight vibrating/scratching sensation. This could vary depending on sensitivity and pain levels, but you should never feel more than a mild discomfort.
Scar tissue is unpredictable in that it may hold or reject pigmentation. Normally 2-3 sessions are required in order to blend the tissue with the surrounding skin tone.
It can take up to 2 weeks to heal.
The 72 hours after the treatment you may experience flaking, tenderness, dryness and/or itchiness and some swelling and redness.
Immediately after the treatment and for the 72 hours afterwards a cold compress can be applied to the area to help reduce any swelling and aid the healing process.
Aftercare is quite simple and involves keeping the area clean and applying a healing balm. You will, however, be given a full information sheet in regards to the aftercare which you will need to carry out for at least one week. Should you have any concerns or queries, Angela and her team are always available.
Unfortunately as of yet there are no treatments available that will fully remove scars. But MCA treatment will significanly reduce the prominance of of your scarring and make the area appear fuller and firmer.
