Skin Needling

Micro-needling is here to plump, smooth and tighten your skin, helping you achieve beautiful, younger looking skin. It creates micro-wounds to the skins surface. These controlled micro-injuries cause a reaction to the skin to stimulate growth of new collagen and elastin, rejuvenating the overall appearance and texture. This process is safe for all skin types and can help many skin concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, acne, difussed redness, enlarged pores, scarring and stretch marks.
One treatment may be all you require for your desired results, however we typically recommend 3 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart for optimal results. In general, you can expect the results of microneedling to last around 3-5 months. The longevity of the results generally depend on two factors; how long new collagen last in your skin and the degree of your skins concerns. People who need to build a lot of collagen to correct skin concerns initially, results will likely last a few months compared to someone with minor concerns, may have quicker results. Younger people generally build collagen more easily and hold onto it for longer periods than mature skin types. A stressful lifestyle can also break collagen down faster, along with Tobacco use and unprotected exposure to sunlight. Using a medical graded skin care range will also prolong the longevity of your results.
As for downtime, the thought of causing micro-injuries to the skin sounds a lot worse than reality. Your skin cells are continuing to die and be replaced by new ones. However, the skin may experience a ‘mild sunburn’ effect or small minor irritations such as, redness, swelling, itchiness, burning or flushness for 24-48 hours. It is also possible that you may experience a little peeling in the first few days.
Aftercare is minimal, with no make up to be applied for 24 hours. It is important to apply a minimum SPF 30+ sunscreen regularly and avoid too much time in the sun. Overall, compared to other treatments the recovery has very minimal downtime.
