Skin needling is a safe and increasingly popular skin renewal technique to restore the healthy youthful appearance of your skin at a fraction of the cost of comparable treatments and with minimal downtime. Skin needling produces comparable results to ‘ablative techniques’ such as lasers, Fraxel and deep chemical peels, but is much less invasive and does not require the removal of the skin surface. As a result, healing time is shorter and there is no post-treatment sensitivity to UV light. Skin needling produces better results than other “non-ablative techniques” with virtually no pain or post-treatment discomfort. Skin needling is also one of the few skin therapies that is suitable for treating all skin types, including ethnic skin and fragile skin around the eyes, mouth, hands, neck and décolletage.

Skin Needling improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as any type of scars. The treatment uses a skin needling device with tiny needles rolling back & forth to create tiny puncture wounds on the skin. This process stimulates the natural collagen production by generating a wound healing response in the treated skin. Medical skin needling improves the thickness of the dermis as well as the epidermis. This improves skin texture and reduces wrinkles. It also has a positive effect on skin discolouration. Skin Needling reduces disfiguring scars and acne scars, stimulates new collagen fibers, improves blood supply and harmonises pigmentation.
The length of the needles used on a medical grade device for collagen induction therapy will vary. The longer the needle, the deeper into the skin it will penetrate, and the more dramatic results you will see. A topical anesthetic is usually applied before treatment to minimise any discomfort. Your treatment can take anywhere between 30 minutes to an hour depending on the area you are having treated.
The inflammatory response of the skin is extremely short and fades significantly within hours from redness to a pinkish hue that may last for 12 to 24 hours on average. In order to reduce visible redness and ensure maximum collagen stimulation, we recommend gentle cleansing, healing minerals, vitamin C, peptides and hyaluronic acid after the procedure, and to protect the skin with medical strength sun blocks. We have a range of medical grade skin care products that we recommend our patients use after their treatment. We find that medical makeup is excellent in concealing the initial redness and essential in promoting healing.
