Unlocking Radiant Skin: A Comprehensive Guide to Skin Needling

In recent years, skin needling has surged in popularity – and for good reason. This innovative approach to skincare offers different benefits, ranging from improved skin texture to reduced signs of ageing.

At Evolution Laser Clinic, we understand the transformative potential of skin needling and the importance of tailoring treatments to individual needs. In this post, we’ll dive into the world of skin needling, exploring its benefits, the process, and essential post-care practices.

What is Skin Needling?

Skin needling, also called microneedling or collagen induction therapy, is an advanced skincare technique that uses a special device with tiny needles to create controlled micro-wounds on the skin’s surface.

This process triggers the skin’s natural healing response, leading to improvements in texture, tone, and overall appearance. By stimulating collagen production and accelerating cell renewal, skin needling can effectively address concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and pigmentation issues. It’s a safe and effective way to rejuvenate the skin and achieve a smoother, more radiant complexion.

How is Skin Needling Performed?

Skin needling is performed using a specialised micro-needling pen equipped with ultra-fine needles. This pen offers the advantage of adjustable needle depths, ensuring suitability for various body parts and skin tones.

Before commencing the treatment, a thorough skin scan is conducted by a trained professional. This scan allows for a comprehensive analysis of the skin’s condition, identifying specific concerns and areas requiring attention. By understanding the unique needs of each individual, a personalised treatment plan can be devised, tailored to address their specific skin goals.

Once the skin analysis is complete and the treatment plan is established, the skin needling procedure begins.

The therapist carefully guides the micro-needling pen across the skin’s surface, adjusting the depth of the needles as needed to target different areas effectively. The process is conducted with precision and expertise, ensuring optimal results while minimising discomfort.

Throughout the treatment, the micro-needles create controlled micro-injuries in the skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing response. This prompts the production of collagen and elastin, essential proteins that contribute to skin firmness, elasticity, and overall health.

Additionally, the micro-channels created by the needles enhance the absorption of topical skincare products, maximising their efficacy. It is crucial that skin needling treatments are performed by a qualified professional to ensure safety, efficacy, and optimal results.

Treatment Process and Expectations

During each skin needling session, which typically spans 30 to 45 minutes, individuals can expect minimal discomfort and downtime, making it a convenient option for those with busy schedules.

Following the treatment, it’s common to experience some redness and mild sensitivity in the treated areas, though these side effects typically resolve within 24 hours.

At Evolution Laser Clinic, we believe in personalised care for each of our clients. When you come in for your initial consultation, our team conducts a thorough skin scan and analysis to understand your unique concerns and needs. This assessment guides us in recommending the appropriate number of skin needling treatments required to achieve the best results for you.

While some clients may experience remarkable improvements with just two to three sessions, others with more severe acne scarring or pigmentation issues may need several treatments to attain their desired outcome.

Although every individual is different, most clients typically undergo four to six sessions for lasting and consistent collagen induction. These sessions are spaced four to six weeks apart to ensure optimal results while allowing the skin time to heal and regenerate.

Treating Skin Conditions with Skin Needling

At Evolution Laser Clinic, our state-of-the-art skin needling procedure can effectively target the following conditions:

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Our skin needling procedure is an excellent option for diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. Through the induction of collagen and elastin production, it plumps up the skin, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles for a smoother, more youthful look.

Stretch Marks

Skin needling can be beneficial in improving the appearance of stretch marks, whether they’re due to pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or growth spurts. With consistent treatments, it helps remodel the skin’s structure, minimising the depth and visibility of stretch marks over time.

General Skin Aging

Skin needling serves as an effective anti-aging treatment, targeting various signs of ageing such as dullness, sagging, and loss of elasticity. By stimulating collagen and elastin production, it helps firm and tighten the skin, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance overall.

Uneven Texture

Whether caused by acne scars, enlarged pores, or rough patches, uneven skin texture can be significantly improved with our skin needling treatment. By promoting cell turnover and encouraging the growth of healthy new skin cells, it leads to a smoother and more refined skin texture over time

Enlarged Pores

Skin needling at Evolution Laser Clinic boosts collagen and elastin production, which firms and tightens the skin, reducing the appearance of enlarged pores. Additionally, the micro-needles enhance the absorption of skincare products, making pore-reducing serums and creams more effective for faster results.

Aftercare and Precautions

Pre-Treatment Preparation

To enhance the efficacy of your skin needling treatment, we recommend using a Vitamin-A serum for two weeks prior to your appointment. Our evolveMD Multi Active Serum is specially formulated to prepare your skin for treatment, ensuring optimal results.

Post-Treatment Care

For the next two weeks post-treatment, it’s crucial to shield your skin from sun exposure, as well as refrain from engaging in activities that induce sweating or expose your skin to excessive heat. This includes avoiding sunbathing, strenuous exercise, saunas, and hot environments, as these can interfere with the healing process and increase the risk of complications.

Post-treatment care involves adopting a gentle skincare routine to support the skin’s healing process. It’s essential to nourish your skin with products that promote healing and hydration. We recommend our evolveMD Advanced Hydrating Serum, which plays a vital role in supporting your skin’s ability to repair and retain moisture, keeping it plump and hydrated.

Protecting your skin from harmful UV rays is paramount for maintaining results and preventing damage. We recommend using a sunscreen such as our evolveMD UV Sun Protection which provides natural zinc-based sun protection. Apply sunscreen immediately after your treatment and continue to use it daily to safeguard your skin from sun damage.

Our experienced skin therapists will provide you with personalised aftercare instructions tailored to your treatment plan. These guidelines will help ensure that you achieve the best possible outcomes and maintain the health and integrity of your skin.
