What is Skin Needling?

Skin Needling, also known as ‘Collagen Induction Therapy,’ is a minimally invasive rejuvenation treatment that boosts collagen and elastin, improving skin tone and texture while reducing scars and stretch marks.

Skin Needling causes controlled micro-injuries to the skin’s surface using very fine sterile needles. The body’s natural wound-healing processes are activated, leading to the production of collagen and elastin. As the skin heals, it becomes firmer, smoother, and more even in tone and texture. This process can improve the appearance of scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, and other skin concerns, ultimately promoting a rejuvenated and refreshed complexion.

Skin Needling also tackles pigmentation, sun damage, uneven texture, and enlarged pores.

What are the benefits?

Skin needling, or microneedling, offers a range of benefits for the skin. It can improve overall skin texture and tone, helping to smooth out rough areas and even out pigmentation. Additionally, it’s effective in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by promoting collagen production. Microneedling can also diminish the visibility of scars, including acne scars, and stretch marks by encouraging skin regeneration. Another advantage is its ability to enhance the absorption of skincare products, making them more effective. Moreover, it contributes to improved skin firmness and elasticity, reducing sagging and promoting a more youthful appearance. Overall, microneedling is a versatile treatment that addresses multiple skin concerns, resulting in healthier, rejuvenated skin.

How often should you have skin needling?

Clients will see an improvement after each treatment however please use the following as a guide:

Skin Rejuvenation 3-6 treatments (4-6 weeks apart)

Acne scarring 6-12 treatments (4-6 weeks apart)

How Long Will Result Last

Like all rejuvenation treatments, you do need maintenance treatments to maintain the integrity of your skin. Your new collagen will continue to improve over 6-12 months and results may last up to a couple years. It is recommended that you do a top-up/maintenance treatment 2 – 4 times a year to maintain your results and further stimulate collagen development.
