Skin Needling

Skin Needling

Skin needling is a treatment that stimulates the skins self-repair process by creating precise micro injuries in the skin that trigger the production of collagen and elastin. Skin needling is ideal for treating acne scarring, signs of ageing, improving skin texture and tone, enlarged pores, pigmentation and hormonal pigment, redness and stretch marks.

What are the benefits?

Skin needling (aka collagen induction therapy) is a natural way to induce collagen and elastin production for all skin types. Our state-of-the-art cosmetic micro-needling device will encourage cell renewal and repair damaged skin caused by scarring, pigment or ageing skin. Multiple treatments over a period will help to strengthen the epidermis leaving you with improved skin texture and tone.

As the needles on the cosmetic micro-needling device can be adjusted to reach varied depths, skin needling is safe and an effective treatment for all parts of the body. Our treatments can be tailored to suit your individual needs and skin goals.

Skin needling can be customised to treat all skin tones from fair to dark.

How does it work?

Our highly qualified skin therapist uses a micro-needling pen that contains ultra-fine needles. When the pen passes over the skin, the needles create micro wounds in the skin to trigger a natural healing response. Using a cosmetic micro-needling device allows us more control in those hard to reach areas like under the eye, nose and around the lips.

Prior to treatment, our skin therapist will conduct a thorough skin scan to analyse your skins condition. A treatment plan will then be created to suit your needs and help you reach your skin goals.

Each skin needling treatment will take approximately 30-45 minutes to complete. Post treatment, you can expect some redness and your skin may feel slightly tight or sensitive. This will typically subside within 24 hours.

After approximately 3-5 days post treatment, you may experience some mild shedding of the skin. This is a completely normal response which may last anywhere between 2-3 days. Most people see an immediate result 7 days post treatment, however optimal results are achieved up to 3 months post treatment.

Pre/Post Care

We recommend the use of a Vitamin-A serum for 2 weeks prior to your treatment. The Evolve Acne Defence or Age Defence serums are specially designed products to prep your skin in advance to receive optimal results post treatment.

Post treatment, we recommend using the Evolve Hyaluronic Serum as it plays a vital role in your skins ability to heal and repair whilst retaining moisture which will keep the skin plump and hydrated.

To protect your skin from harmful UV rays, it is important to use a sunscreen such as Evolve Sun Defence. This is a specially formulated natural zinc sun protection, which can be used immediately after your treatment. For the first 48 hours, it is best to avoid excessive sun exposure, saunas, harsh chemicals and exercise.

Our skin therapists will provide you with aftercare information tailored to your treatment plan.

Recommendations

For optimal results, 4-6 treatments are recommended at 4 week intervals.

Our Yellow LED Light Therapy Treatment is a great addition to this treatment as it will promote wound healing and minimise downtime.

We also recommend the Evolve Pigment Defence serum for anyone with pigment damage or medium to dark skin, as this will inhibit further pigment production and will also improve the result on existing pigment in the skin.
