The Victorian Laser & Skin Clinic offers safe and effective skin needling in Melbourne CBD, Mt Waverley and Hawthorn at our conveniently located clinics. Check out some skin needling before and after photos.
Skin needling is a regenerative treatment designed to stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process, to improve the appearance of uneven tone, wrinkles, pigmentation and scarring. Sometimes referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy or derma rolling, the procedure uses multiple fine needles (attached to a manual pressing or derma roller device) that create microscopic punctures in the skin. These punctures stimulate the body’s release of collagen to heal the ‘wounds’. The size of the needles and manual pressure used will differ according to the condition and area being treated by the derma rolling; stretch marks on the body and enlarged pores on the face will require different courses of treatment, for example.
Derma rolling is most commonly used on the face, however, it can also be used to treat the neck, hands, chest and back.
This treatment has had proven results for a number of skin conditions and issues. Below are some common uses for skin needling:
The skin needling before and after photos are testament to the potential of the derma roller. Stretch marks, fine lines and even thinning hair have all been seen to improve over the course of a number of sessions. Unlike some skin rejuvenation methods, skin needling treatments stimulate the dermis without removing the skin’s healthy top layer, resulting in less healing time and no risk of permanent damage, such as hyperpigmentation.
When you visit us for derma rolling in Melbourne, you will be advised on the number of sessions required to achieve best results by your practitioner. Approximately 3-4 sessions are usually required over several months to achieve the desired result. However, you should begin to notice an improvement in the tone and texture of your skin within 6-8 weeks following treatment. This improvement will continue over the subsequent months.
To minimise discomfort, we can apply a topical anaesthetic cream 30–60 mins before treatment. This means you should only feel a slight pressure from the derma roller during the procedure. You may also experience some sensitivity for the first 24-48 hours following your skin needling treatment.
