Kickstart your skin’s healing processes for a refreshed look
Get smoother and younger looking skin thanks to this natural boost to collagen and elastin formation. Harnessing your body’s natural healing processes, Skin Needling (aka micro-needling) kickstarts collagen and elastin production to smooth out lines, improve the look of scarring and lighten pigmentation.
About Skin Needling
Micro-needling, also known as dermal needling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that can improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and other skin concerns.
Skin needling makes tiny, precise punctures in the superficial layers of your skin. This prompts your body to naturally produce more collagen and elastin fibres, resulting in tighter, brighter skin and an even-toned complexion.
Skin Needling are used to treat:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sagging skin
- Tired looking skin
- Acne scarring
- Uneven skin texture
- Age spots
Benefits of Skin Needling:
- Plumped and rejuvenated skin
- Reduction in the appearance of acne scarring
- Increases collagen & elastin production
Frequently Asked Questions
How Many Treatments will I need?
Every person’s skin is unique so the number of treatments you may need will vary depending on what condition(s) you want treated with micro needling. The following are some general guidelines only.
Rejuvenation: 4-6 treatments, 4 weeks apart
Acne scarring: 6 treatments, 6 weeks apart
Stretch marks: 4-8 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart
Should I prepare my skin before having Skin Needling?
For optimal results, a period of effective active treatment creams, such as Vitamin A, C or Resveratrol is recommended to allow the skin’s strength to build-up (especially for thin or delicate skin areas). Consult your therapist about the recommended Pre- and Post- procedure protocol.
How long should it take before I see results?
Typically, you will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will occur after 4 to 6 treatments (spaced 4-6 weeks apart). Your skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months after a course of treatments and when combined with the recommended post treatment care.
Is the treatment painful?
For minimum needle depths Skin Needling treatments are painless. Treatments over 0.5mm deep are a bit more intense but manageable.
Is there any downtime after treatments?
Generally, no, but you may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment. Most people can return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment. Application of a breathable camouflage will seal the skin and cover any redness for an immediate return to work.
How soon after filler injections can I have a Skin Needling Treatment?
It is recommended to wait at least 7 days after filler injections, so that any post treatment bruising from the fillers can settle. It is also possible to have Skin Needling several days before having fillers injected. Consult with your practitioner prior to determine exactly how long a wait is best in each case.
