Skin Needling

Skin Needling is a treatment that improves the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the skin’s texture, tone and colour. During this procedure, a sterile cartridge containing titanium microneedles is attached to a pen shaped device. The device is then used to create controlled micro injuries to the skin, stimulating skin cells to proliferate. This cell multiplication results in the formation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibres as well as new capillaries for an improved blood supply.

Benefits

  • Firmer skin with fewer lines and wrinkles
  • Can reduce scarring
  • Helps to remove/reduce pigmentation and sun damage
  • Healthier, more youthful looking skin

What areas can be treated with Micro Needling?

Face, neck, décolleté, hands & body

How is the procedure done?

The skin is cleansed and topical numbing cream is applied to ensure minimum discomfort. Needle depth and speed are selected appropriate to the area being treated.

The pen is gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding over the treatment area. The needles pierce the skin creating micro channels into the dermis. 

Is the Treatment Painful?

While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating cartridge tip makes the treatment surprisingly painless.

The topical numbing cream ensures that the treatment is as comfrotable as possible.

What will I look like following the procedure and what is the down time?

Immediately after the treatment, your skin will be bright red in colour. You may also experience mild swelling and pinpoint bleeding and /or bruising. The inflammatory reaction of the skin is typically very short and fades significantly within a few hours. Depending on the depth of the treatment and your own inflammatory response, you may experience mild redness for 2-4 days. Swelling may be more noticeable on the second day. As the redness fades, the skin may have a pink hue that typically lasts from 12 to 48 hours. This may be accompanied by mild flaking of the area treated.

How many treatments will I need?

Microneedling can be safely repeated every 4-6 weeks until you achieve the desired results. The number of treatments required will vary by individual response and the extent of the issues being addressed. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photoaging, stretch marks or acne scars, it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6 week intervals.
