Skin Needling

Skin needling is one of the latest innovations in skin rejuvenation.

It is used in the treatment of acne scars, wrinkles, skin texture and tightness. In fact, it’s ability to stimulate collagen and elastin growth has made it a leading clinical choice for reducing acne scars. These controlled micro-injuries can stimulate your body’s production of collagen for up to 12 months after the procedure.

The M-Derma is a next generation dermal needling system that uses sterile, disposable, ultra fine needle cartridges that create small micro-channels in the skin. These channels also provide improved access for topical serums and solutions to penetrate the surface of the skin, which improves their effectiveness.

Both the depth of the needles and the type of topical solution can be tailored to suit your specific needs. Clients tell us they notice smoother, softer skin with visible reduction in fine lines, wrinkles and shallow acne scarring.

Key Questions about Skin Needling

How long will it take to see results?

Results may be visible after the first treatment, however the recommended number of treatments:
Skin rejuvenation - 4 to 6 treatments.
Acne scars - minimum 6 treatments.
Stretch marks - 4 to 8 treatments.
Your skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months.

What’s the recovery time for skin needling?

Minimal recovery time!
Flushing of the skin usually last between 12 and 48 hours after treatment, although most people are able to return to their daily activities immediately after treatment.
Facial redness can be camouflaged with a mineral make-up after treatment.

Is the skin needling treatment painful?

Topical anaesthetic is applied 30 minutes prior to your treatment to minimise discomfort.
However, if you would prefer not to use topical anaesthetic, treatment depths can be adjusted to make the procedure more comfortable (although we may not achieve the desired result if it isn't tolerated).
