What is Microneedling?

Microneedling (also known as skin needling or dermal needling) is an effective treatment used to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, pore size, sun damage and acne scarring.

Lots of tiny needles penetrate the skin’s surface to stimulate collagen and elastin production, which plumps and rejuvenates the skin. The face, neck, chest and hands are common areas to be treated.

Frequently asked questions

What results to expect from Microneedling

You will start to see results within a week of treatment. A course of three treatments is normally recommended for optimal results.

The results are permanent as your own collagen is produced, however, it is recommended to have regular maintenance treatments due to the nature of the ageing process and environmental damage reoccurring.

Does Microneedling hurt?

Mild discomfort can be experienced during treatment, however a topical numbing cream is applied to the skin before the treatment to prevent pain.

Are there any Side Effects?

It is common to have warm, tingly, red and dry skin for a few days after treatment. A high factor UVA/UVB sun block is recommended to protect the skin following treatment.
