What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is also known as Collagen Induction Therapy. It is a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure for skin rejuvenation.
What can Microneedling be used to treat?
Microneedling can be used to treat scars and stimulate skin rejuvenation. It also promotes improved skin texture, firmness, and hydration.
In conjunction with other treatments, Microneedling can also be used to minimise large pores, treat alopecia/hair loss, and aid in the penetration of active ingredients.
How does Microneedling work?
Microneedling involves a device that creates controlled skin injury that, in turn, help the skin help itself.
Small needles are used to cause tiny punctures to the skin, stimulating the body to create a wound healing response and renew the skin, with collagen and elastin.
Is it safe?
Yes, as the epidermis remains intact, the procedure can be repeated safely and is also suited to regions where laser treatments and deep peels are not typically performed.
Does it hurt?
Although the needles puncture the dermis layer of your skin, it will not damage it in any way. It is normal for the area treated to be a little sensitive once commenced, and you may experience some redness. You will be advised of any necessary after care instructions, if need be.
How long do the effects last?
For optimal results, we typically suggest you have four to eight sessions, spaced four to six weeks apart. However, individual needs and results will vary.
After the course of treatment is completed, collagen growth continues for up to year after your last needling session. It is, therefore, advised that you have ‘top up’ session during the year to continue the collagen stimulation.
