Micro Needling is a skin rejuvenation treatment that helps to support the skin’s regeneration of collagen and elastin through a natural healing process.
Ultra-fine medical-grade stainless steel needles are passed vertically across the skin creating multiple surface skin channels that stimulate collagen and elastin fibroblasts.
This treatment is designed to support skin regeneration to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin texture, providing an overall more youthful and glowing appearance.
This treatment also supports the reduction of acne scars and improves the appearance of stretch marks and surgical scars. It also supports synthesis of collagen and elastin, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, minimizes open pores, refines surface texture, reduces appearance of stretch marks and dramatically smooths and retextures coarse, thickened skins and strengthens fine fragile skins.
Rejuvenation 4 – 6 treatments 4 weeks apart
Acne Scars 6 – 8 treatments 6 weeks apart
Stretch marks 10 – 20 treatments 4 weeks apart
Should I prepare my skin before having a Micro Needling treatment?
For optimal results we recommend a period of effective active treatment crèmes such as Vitamin A, Growth Factor Serums or Reservatrol or Cabernet Peels to allow the skin’s strength to be built up (especially necessary for thin and delicate skin areas). Continue to use these recommended solutions after the treatment for a period of 6 weeks.
Typically, you would see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will occur after 4-6 treatments (spaced 3-4 weeks apart). Your skin will continue to improve over the next 3-6 months after a course of treatments and when combined with the recommended post-treatment skincare regime.
For minimum needle depths Micro Needling treatments are painless. For treatments deeper than 1mm, a topical anaesthetic crème is applied 15-20 minutes before treatment and will render the treatment completely pain-free.
It is recommended to leave a gap of at least 7 days after filler injections so that any post treatment bruising from the fillers can settle. Or the recommended option is to have your Micro Needling treatment 4-7 days before having fillers injected.
