Skin Needling, also known as microneedling, is a cosmetic treatment that involves the use of a medical-grade Dermapen with tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin’s surface.

Treatment Process

  • Controlled Micro-Injuries: Skin needling creates controlled micro-injuries in the skin, which trigger the body’s natural healing process.
  • Stimulate Collagen and Elastin: These micro-injuries stimulate collagen and elastin production, essential proteins that contribute to skin’s strength and elasticity.
  • Regeneration of cells: The release of growth factors further enhances the regeneration of damaged skin, promoting the formation of new epidermal cells, fibroblasts (cells that produce collagen), and the skin matrix.
  • Improve Skin Quality: Over time, this process can lead to improved skin texture, reduced wrinkles, and a tightening and firming effect.
  • Variable Depths: The depth of the microneedles can be adjusted based on the specific goals of the treatment and the area of the skin being targeted. This flexibility allows for customisation and can help minimise downtime.

Expected Results

Skin needling can be applied to both the face and neck and may provide various benefits including:

  • Skin tightening, lifting, and rejuvenation.
  • Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Improvement in the appearance of acne scars.
  • Enhanced wound healing.
  • Minimisation of pore size and improvement in uneven skin texture.
  • Reduction of stretch marks.
  • Lightening of pigmentation when combined with targeted serums.

Procedure Overview

  • Procedure Time: Typically takes about 30 minutes per session.
  • Downtime: Patients may experience redness, swelling, and some minor discomfort immediately following the procedure. This downtime usually lasts for 24-48 hours.
  • Results Duration: While some results may be noticeable after a single treatment, the best outcomes are often achieved through a series of sessions. Maintenance treatments may be required to sustain the results over time.
  • Cost of treatment: From $300

Pair this treatment with: Skin needling can be complemented by an at-home skincare regimen, as well as other cosmetic procedures such as Dermal Fillers and Anti-wrinkle treatments.

It’s recommended to consult with an experienced practitioner before undergoing skin needling to assess your specific skin care needs, address any concerns, and determine the appropriate treatment plan.
