Medical Skin Needling – also known as micro-needling or dermaroller – is a highly effective collagen-induction therapy. The procedure stimulates your skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, leaving you with a smoother, plumper and more radiant complexion.
Our Skin Needling process is used to improve the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks, aged and sun damaged skin, facial and décolleté lines, and wrinkles. We recommend a course of three treatments, spaced at six weekly intervals, to get the best results.
A sterile roller covered with numerous tiny needles is moved back and forth over numbed skin producing microscopic punctures in the upper layers. It is the healing response to this very minor trauma that produces the result. We can also apply serums during and after skin needling, which are absorbed through the minute punctures, to hydrate, stimulate and repair.
In the twelve hours following treatment, skin can feel hot, like sunburn and although red initially, there is no downtime because it covers with make-up. Your skin will be drier than usual for five days, after which results will start to show, reaching a maximum after 4-6 weeks.
The procedure stimulates skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, plumper, tighter, brighter, healthier looking skin.
The Skin Needling procedure is generally well tolerated, although on very thin skin it can feel prickly. We work with each individual skin using different needle lengths to minimize discomfort but maximize the result.
