Skin Needling

What is skin needling treatment?

Skin Needling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a procedure that is carried out by a Skin Care Therapist using a sterile device, such as a roller or needle stamp with a series of fine needles, which are gently inserted into the epidermis. These microscopic punctures trigger growth signals to skin cells which over time promote collagen and elastin production. Skin needling also has the added benefit of providing a channel for topical serums and creams to be more effectively absorbed through the top layer of the skin, resulting in improved skin texture, less scarring and wrinkling.

Is this procedure painful?

Topical numbing cream is applied to the area approximately 40 minutes prior to the procedure to reduce discomfort.

  • Ro Accutane use in the last 12 months

  • Chemical peels, depending on the depth of the peel, need to wait two weeks before treatment
    Your skin therapist will be able to provide more information at your initial consultation.

How many treatments will I need?

Most skins will need multiple treatments at 4-8 week intervals depending on the condition being treated and the desired outcome. This time frame gives the skin time to heal and allows new collagen formation. Results are evident after a few weeks and skin texture will continue to improve over a 12 month period.

How will my skin look and feel after the treatment?

You may experience:

  • Mild to moderate redness and sensitivity lasting 12 to 48 hours
  • Mild to moderate swelling and possible bruising for 2-3 days
  • Dry and tight skin
  • Some flaking and peeling of the skin. When shed, your skin will feel softer and smoother.

It is extremely important to follow the post-treatment regime given to you by your Therapist.

Why do I need an initial consultation?

Prior to carrying out this treatment we need to assess suitability and explain the process of the treatment in full.
