More FAQs

What will Micro-needling involve?
For optimum skin improvement M-Pen Micro-needling is best taken after an exfoliation treatment such as a Micr0-dermabrasion & LED, Fresh Up Light or a Chemical Skin Peel to lift layers of unwanted dead skin cells’ improving the surface of the skin. The M-Pen Micro-needle treatment will repair the deeper layers of the skin’s structures.

Your skin care practitioner will complete a detailed consultation to establish your skin type, condition, and your skin care improvement goals, all of which will determine the most suitable exfoliation treatment, pharmaceutical active ingredients and planning to suit your skin.

Commencing apre-exfoliation treatment, or simply a cleanse if you opt out of the pre exfoliation treatment, the M-Pen Micro-needling is applied along with the application of the pharmaceutical active ingredients.

The M-Pen Micro-needling selectively targets dermal structures, whereby it can be ‘tricked’ into producing new collagen in response to the perceived injury whilst the cocktail of pharmaceutical active ingredients are absorbed into the skin via the thousands of epidermal micro-canals.

This process instantly increases cellular regeneration, improving tired, dull, dehydrated skin, fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, open pores and acne scars, leaving the skin feeling instantly rejuvenated, plumped, smoother, fresh and glowing.

The body treatments reduce the toxic build up, reducing fluid retention, cellulite and localised fat.

The pharmaceutical active ingredients:
Mesoestetic c.prof
c.prof is an extensive line of active ingredient cocktails that provide effective solutions for the main facial, body and capillary aesthetic concerns.

The high variety of active ingredients included in each formula promotes the natural events of cell repair, while reducing skin tissue disorders. Its PH is within the physiological PH range, thus ensuring an optimum skin tolerance level.

The range of solutions include: depigmentation, photo ageing, mesotox, mesopeptide, draining, lipolytic, body firming, skinmark, cellulishock and hair loss.

Mesoestetic x.prof
x.prof is a wide range of sterile active ingredients for medical-cosmetic use. With a prior diagnosis, our skin care practitioner will evaluate your needs and will select the most appropriate formulas to be applied individually or to produce customised combinations.

The range of solutions include: artichoke extract, caffeine, L-carnitine, organic silicon, melilot and rutin extract, mesostabyl, dexpanthenol, viatamin c, DMAE, piruvex, oligoelements, biotin, hyaluronic acid and more.

Why have Micro-needling?
To improve:

  • Fine lines & wrinkles
  • Signs of ageing
  • Skin flaccidity
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Pigmentation disorders
  • Dull, dry, dehydrated skin
  • Acne scaring
  • Scars
  • Open pores
  • Cellulite
  • Stretch marks
  • Stubborn unwanted localised fat
  • Hair growth

Does this skin treatment hurt?
Each individual has varied pain threshold to the needling action. Care is taken to make it as comfortable as possible. An anesthetic cream may be applied where applicable.

How many treatments do I need?
A single treatment will provide an instant skin rejuvenation effect; a course of treatments would be advised for more problematic concerns.

Depending on the needle depth applied and if the pen is combined with other modalities we strongly advise a course of 3 to 6 treatments taken every 2 to 6 weeks to provide effective results and the longevity of the skin results.

How quickly will I see micro-needling results?
You will see results immediately after a single treatment and progressively over a series of treatments as the new collagen and elastin molecules mature into a well organised matrix in the dermal layer of the skin, increasing volume from within the skin, plumping out fine lines, wrinkles, open pores and scars, along with overall improvements in skin tone, sun-damage and ageing skin.

There is an instant visible reduction in fluid retention and overall improvement in cellulite, which is also progressive over a series of treatments.

In the treatment fat reduction generally at least 3 sessions would be required to see results.

How long will M-Pen Micro-needling results last?
Commencing a single treatment the skin will appear taught and bright for several days and up to several months if a deeper needle depth is applied or commencing a course of treatments.

However this depends on many factors, such as how one cares for their skin post treatment, the severity of one’s natural oil production, diet, stress, hormone influences and lifestyle.

After Care

There is a recovery and healing period post M-Pen Micro-needling treatment.

During the first 48 hours it is advised not to expose the area treated to heat, sun, sun bed, UV-light and extreme minus temperatures.

Avoid the use of sauna, or steam room, waxing, hair removal/bleaching, hair dye, AHA’s, BHA’s, Retinal, self-tanning lotions and non-mineral base make-up.

Do not peel, pick, scratch or scrape the skin, or any scabs  resulting from the treatment, this must come off in its own time with no assistance; ignoring this advice can lead to scarring

Do not massage or rub the area for 48 hours (cleansing the skin is fine) as this will disperse the pharmaceutical products.

No exercise or massage treatments for 72 hours after the treatment as this will disperse the pharmaceutical products.

Aftercare products will depend on your skin type and skin concerns.

For a healthier skin your skin care practitioner will guide you with a personlised home care skin regime.

It is a MUST to wear Sun Protection SPF 50+ daily.

Emporium Practitioner:
Angela Taffinder – Senior Aesthetician


Angela is simply the best.
She has completely turned around my skin – I really couldn’t be happier with the results. Angela has so much experience, and so much advice – there are always different options and avenues to explore.
I really couldn’t recommend more


Angela is simply the best. I’ve been one of her clients for nearly 7 years and I can’t recommend her more highly. She has tailor made me a bespoke milia removal/ face rejuvenation treatment and I wouldn’t be without it! She has so much experience and knowledge and never fails to work her magic. Her treatments are so much more than your bog standard facial, she knows exactly what your skin needs and explains everything along the way. I promise you won’t find any one better.


Angela has been caring for my skin for the last 25 years. Her treatments are bespoke, addressing whatever is currently going on with my skin. I have a monthly triple treatment which seems to be exactly what my skin needs at the moment. During lockdown, my skin missed her amazing treatments & careful attention.


I went in having let my milia run riot during lockdown and I was super impressed to leave the treatment not only without a mark but with totally revived skin after the facial. I also love that there is no “paint by numbers” approach to the treatment, you feel that you’re getting an experience tailored to your skin’s needs. I have and would continue to recommend.


I have been going to Angela for years and she really knows my skin and what treatments to give … I totally trust her and have recommended her to many of my friends who also love her . HIGHLY RECOMMENDED XXX


Transformed my acne!
I have been coming to Emporium Treatments for almost a year and each time I leave, I’m even more in love with my skin. When I had my initial treatment with Angela, my skin was suffering from active acne and scarring. Angela provided a tailored treatment plan for myself, explaining every step clearly and since then my skin has improved dramatically. She has really helped with my overall confidence. I would highly recommend.


Angela always provides the best service, no matter which of the many treatments you choose. Booking is a breeze, and punctuality is proven. My chosen treatment was conducted quickly, professionally, and thoroughly. The results consistently exceed my expectations! I always look forward to my next appointment.


Angela at Emporium is amazing!
I have recurring milia so I’m constantly coming to see her for extractions. Before my first visit she answered all of my questions and made me feel like she really cared before I’d even met her.
I have hundreds of milia and every session she has the patience of a saint, removing each one by hand.
It’s a bit of a painful procedure but she’s so lovely and friendly that I feel at ease the second I step through the door and she always works her magic quickly and carefully, using lots of cooling and soothing aftercare to help calm down my skin.
Over the years, she’s put so much time in to helping me work out what’s causing them and how to prevent future flare ups.
I have been to other places for milia removal in the past but Angela is by far the best (and more reasonably priced than some of the bigger companies). I wouldn’t even dream of going anywhere else now.


Emporium is my go to for facial treatments – Angela is one of London’s best kept secrets. Her technique is superb, far beyond what any branded beauty salon can do.

Anna Marie

I have been going to Angela (Emporium) around 6 years now and she always manages to clear my skin and keep me looking youthful with her up to date advance treatments,My personal favourite is the Green peel and Microneedling facial as well as various body treatments I have had here to .I always leave with a glow and get compliments highly reccomend x


Five-star experience!
Couldn’t recommend Angela (Emporium) more highly! I’ve be going for bespoke facials for a number of years and have always felt a truly pampered. The facials are tailored to your skin type and she is *the best* at milia removal. Angela has always been able to accommodate appointments around my work schedule, and at short notice, and I’ve been more than happy to recommend to friends.


I’ve been going to Angela for the last 25/30 years. In between I’ve tried other places and practitioners but always end up going back to Emporium. Angela understands my skin, right from the beginning when I had acne and pigmentation to now where my skin needs are different. I appreciate her experience and knowledge, my skin looks and feels great. Highly recommend.


Angela’s facials have literally transformed my skin. I met Angela back in October last year, and my only regret is not going to see her sooner. My skin was ruined by a couple of badly chosen laser treatments earlier in the year and after my first facial with Angela I felt so much better about myself, she cleared my skin completely and made me love it again! I think I’m a little addicted to her treatments now, she knows a lot about skin care and tailors the facial to exactly what your skin needs. I’m so happy to have found her. 5/5 review from me!


Excellent Milia Removal
Attended Emporium Treatment Clinic for milia removal. Great experience – friendly, well-priced and effective. Will definitely be recommending to friends.


Angela is a fantastic practitioner and a lovely person. I’ve had many successful facials and treatments with her over the past few years. I trust her advice completely. She’s never pushed any treatments or products, but is always open to suggesting new solutions.

What our customers say

Emporium has been my facial clinic for the past 15 years, I have tried many of their facial options. I recently had the Nlite Rejuvenation laser facial...

Amazing in reducing my open pores and wrinkles.

All the girls are lovely and the working environment is friendly.

What our customers say

I visited the clinic last week for a deep cleanse facial and milia removal. The milia was rather large and had unfortunately become irritated, inflamed and sore. Angela was fantastic and I couldn't believe how quickly she removed it. She made sure there was as little discomfort as possible, and talked me through everything she was doing. My skin felt wonderful after the facial also! 

I really appreciated Angela giving me advice prior to my appointment, and checking up on how my skin was healing after. 

Great personable service that I fully recommend.
