*Left is the old method of skin needling which left large wide tears in the skin.
*Right is our method which provides vertical pin point injuries in the skin causing a quick healing response and fast results.
Micro Needling is one of the world’s most advanced vertical skin needling technologies. Resulting in a more effective, minimally invasive and affordable treatment option that works to tighten, lift, rejuvenate and resurface the skin.
WHAT IS MICRO NEEDLING
It’s multiple needles with an automatic vibrating function. The needles gently pierce the skin, stimulating natural collagen reproduction whilst allowing fine channels to be created in the skin. These channels can carry up to 80% more topical nutrients, allowing for treatment delivery deep into the skin to feed underlying cells found in the dermis and basal layer. This increased absorption of active ingredients into the skin creates stimulated repair and faster resurfacing results.
Micro needling is safer and more effective in piercing the skin than traditional skin needling rollers, due to its unique vertical needling technology. It has a superior effect on collagen and elastin rejuvenation. Active ingredients are directly supplied to the deeper layers of the skin. The multi-speed and adjustable needle depths allows the needles to pierce the skin’s layers at 90 degrees resulting in increased effectiveness of treatments. Furthermore it reduces pain and patient downtime. Micr needling can effectively treat hard-to-reach places (e.g. around the eyes, nose, and lips). Because of the vertical delivery, the needles can easily penetrate scar tissue. Micro Needling promotes scar-less healing and natural collagen reproduction, similar to fractional laser treatments, IPL, laser resurfacing, and chemical peels, but without the side effects and downtime.

Does it hurt?
Unlike other methods of needling, the oscillating motor featured with pen technology dissipates nerve receptors allowing for painless and comfortable treatment. Over 1300 rejuvenating channels are created per second allowing for rapid and targeted results. For more intensive needling procedures, an anaesthetic cream will be applied 15 minutes prior to treatment. This reduces any sensitivity or discomfort; all that is felt is a mild vibrating sensation with light pressure. I personaly would describe the sensation to an abrasive micro-derbrasion treatment with a vibrating tip, its slightly more uncomfortable on bony areas of the face but its honestly not painful (it doesn’t actually feel like needles). After the treatment, the skin will feel warm and slightly tight, similarly to that of light sunburn. This feeling will progressively reduce over a 2 day time period.
Are there any side effects?
Post-treatment, you will experience mild to moderate redness similar to that of a mild to light sunburn, swelling and sensitivity that can last between twelve to forty-eight hours. After a few days, the area will start to feel dry and tight, but this is a normal occurrence as your skin begins to heal and produce new collagen.
If we treat an area aggressively to achieve maximum results, you may experience redness and peeling for up to 1 week.
When will I start to see improvement?
Improvement in skin tone is usually seen in the first week and texture will start to show improvement within six to eight weeks and will continue to improve drastically in the following months, depending on what has been treated. After a series of procedures, a significant improvement will be noticeable, including smoother skin, improved skin tone, reduction of scars and pitting, improved texture of stretch marks, and a reduction in fine lines. We recommend anywhere between three to eight treatments as a general guideline, however, certain deeper skin problems may require additional sessions. Needling sessions are performed at 4-6 weekly intervals to deliver cumulative and effective results. As needling triggers the skin’s natural healing mechanisms, visible improvement will appear around 2-4 weeks post-procedure. The repair cascade may continue for up to 24 months after just 1 treatment. Multiple sessions provide progressive stimulation to further enhance results and longevity.
