Skin Needling

Book Your Complimentary Consultation

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.

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.

Our skin needling treatment also has the benefit of an add on infusion in order to enhance your results. Micro-Needling Infusion Treatments infuse potent serums into the skin to boost and treat specific skin concerns.

Tiny micro needles, create pathways into skin for the delivery of the serums. Infusions help improve skin texture and smoothness, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and help hydrate and even skin tone.

We recommend the use of a Vitamin-A serum for 2 weeks prior to your treatment. The EvolveMD Multi Active Serum is specially designed to prep your skin in advance to receive optimal results post treatment.

Post treatment, we recommend using the EvolveMD Advanced Hydrating  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 EvolveMD UV Sun Protection or the Tinted CC Cream. 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many treatments are recommended to see results?

The number of Micro Needling treatments required for amazing results depends on what condition the skin is in when treatments are begun. Most find that a series of 6 or possibly 10 are needed to see truly dramatic changes in the complexion. Most people hoping to tighten and tone their skin will be on track with 6 treatments. Those who are seeking to diminish the depth of acne scarring generally require a minimum of 8-10 sessions.

Is there any down time?

Downtime after Micro Needling is minimal, but you can expect to have several days of pink skin and some sensitivity. There will most likely be pinpoint bleeding during the treatment, which will stop almost immediately. The skin tends to  take on a “bronzed” appearance for several days post treatment. This bronzed outer layer of skin will begin to flake off, revealing a fresh and glowing new you underneath. It is recommended that you stay away from the sun and avoid strenuous exercise for 2 weeks following treatment. Additionally, it is recommended that hot showers, baths, hot-tubs and saunas are avoided for about two weeks after Micro Needling as well.

Is the procedure painful?

Everyone’s tolerance for discomfort is different, some people don’t mind the

unfamiliar sensation and are surprised by the minimal discomfort. Other people may prefer to have numbing cream applied, prior to treatment.

What kind of results will I see?

The best results are achieved by completing a series of treatments with Micro Needling. Although results vary from person to person, most will experience a decided improvement in tone and texture of the skin after their first treatment. Fine lines and wrinkles soften dramatically, and scarring becomes significantly less noticeable. Micro Needling has gained a strong reputation for rejuvenating sluggish, dull skin. Skin becomes noticeable clearer, smoother and more radiant.
