What can skin needling treat?
Fine lines, wrinkles, sagging contours and tired looking skin are visibly plumped and rejuvenated. Micro Needling also provides the most effective treatment for all types of scar tissue including acne, pock marks, hypertrophic and ice pick. Damaged tissue is replaced with fresh collagen deposition to reduce the appearance of indentations and uneven skin texture. Micro Needling also provides an effective solution for hyper pigmentation and age spots, especially for darker tones. The pen-sized wand allows for efficient treatment of the entire facial, neck or decolletage area. It can also be used on areas such as the hands.
A consultation will be the first step in the treatment, some questions regarding yourself and the treatment are asked and discussed. This consultation will determine and assess the best-suited treatment for each individual.
Our Skin Therapists will assess whether Micro Needling will suit your specific skin problems including acne scar reduction and anti-ageing skin rejuvenation. Micro Needling is extremely safe and effective in treating fine lines, wrinkles, texture, scars and acne scars with each individual treatment usually taking around an hour.
How many treatments will I need?
Every person’s skin is unique so the number of treatments you may need will vary depending on what condition(s) you want treated with micro needling. The following are some general guidelines only.
Rejuvenation: 4-6 treatments, 4 weeks apart
Acne scarring: 6 treatments, 6 weeks apart
Stretch marks: 4-8 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart
Pigmentation: 6 treatments, 2 weeks apart
How long should it take before I see results?
Typically, you will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will occur after 4 to 6 treatments (spaced 4-6 weeks apart).
Your skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months after a course of treatments and when combined with the recommended post treatment care.
Is the treatment painful?
For minimum needle depths skin needling treatments are painless. Treatments over 0.5mm deep are a bit more intense but manageable.
Is there any downtime after treatments?
Generally, no, but you may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment. Most people can return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment. Some clients may experience mild shedding of skin/flakiness 1-3 days post treatment.
