Skin Needling

Skin Needling utilises Dermapen to stimulate collagen growth and to help improve skin texture and scarring. This skin needling treatment can treat fine lines, wrinkles and other skin concerns to ultimately promote healthy, fresh, youthful-looking skin.

The Treatment

Unlike a skin needling roller, dermapen skin needling uses micro-needles that are quickly jabbed into the skin (rather than be roller over). Discomfort is minimised with this technique with the application of topical anaesthetic.

Can be combined with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to further help induce new collagen production and amplify results.

The Results

Post-treatment, track marks and dry skin will exist for 1-2 days. You will see an improvement in your skin after the first week, however, new collagen is formed over 90 days and the results will continue to improve over the next 3 – 6 months.

Generally, 3 treatments are needed and up to 6 treatments may be required for more severe cases (all at 4-6 weekly intervals).

*Disclaimer - Results may vary from patient to patient.

Top Skin Needling Questions

What is Skin Needling or Dermapen?

Skin Needling (also known as collagen induction therapy) involves the passing of very fine needles over the skin. The needles penetrate into the second layer of the skin to create tiny punctures. Where the micro-needling has damaged the old collagen, new collagen production in triggered – ultimately encouraging skin rejuvenation. Skin needling is used for facial rejuvenation; to improve the texture, tone and tightness of skin, as well as to treat skin conditions such as wrinkles, stretch marks and scars. It is particularly useful for acne scarring and sun damaged skin. It may also help reduce pore size. The mechanical damage triggered by the needling creates thousands of miniature skin wounds; through which topical skin care (such as vitamin A and C) can be applied. This can further assist the collagen induction  created by the inflammatory process.

The Procedure. What does it involve?

A topical anaesthetic cream is applied to your face for 15 – 20 minute, which minimises discomfort during the treatment. Very fine needles in the Dermapen are applied to your skin to induce the formation of new collagen. The dermapen is most commonly used with platelet rich plasma to further improve the results The procedure usually takes about an hour. Skin Needling is a skin treatment that can be used over any part of the body, except for under the eyes.
