Micro-Needling / Skin-Needling

Mirco-needling (alternatively known as skin needling or a mesotherapy treatment) is a form of collagen induction therapy. An electronic skin needling device is used to create miniscule puncture channels. This promotes the healing response of the deeper dermis layers and stimulates collagen renewal and regeneration. This is a great treatment to combat acne scarring and other types of scarring, as well as wrinkles and pigmentation.

Skin-needling (Mesotherapy) for Scars

Because skin-needling ( Mesotherapy) promotes the production of new collagen, this is what builds new tissue and assists to rejuvenate the skin within the scarring and so the scar indentation is reduced and in some cases disappears completely.

Skin-needling (Mesotherapy) for Anti-Ageing

Micro-needling is also commonly used to minimise signs of ageing. Our highly trained and experienced dermal therapists can perform the Micro-Needling treatment specifically targeting wrinkles and fine lines on the face, with the treatment helping to tighten the skin and give the face a plumper, more youthful appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Does Micro-Needling Involve?

Micro-Needling is a skin treatment that combines needling and Mesotherapy to help smooth skin texture, soften scarring, and minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Mesotherapy is performed with a medical grade needling device that is electronically charged. The oscillating wand of tiny needles creates very small channels in the skin’s surface so it is safe to use in areas such as the upper lip and under the eyes. The treatment aims to trigger the body’s natural healing process (collagen induction) in order to stimulate skin healing and repair.

Is My Skin Suitable?

Skin-needling can be safely performed on most skin types, including olive and darker skin tones.

What Are the Benefits?

Skin-needling benefits include:

  • Increased absorption of topical products
  • Regulation of pigmentation
  • Reduced appearance of rosacea
  • Reduced size of the appearance of pores
  • Reduced size in the appearance of scar tissue
  • Improvement in the appearance of stretch marks
  • Reduced wrinkles and fine lines

How Many Treatments Are Needed?

For the best results for collagen induction therapy, four to eight treatment sessions should be performed. However, this will depend on which area is being targeted as well as the skin condition/concern being treated. For example, small scarring will require less treatments than larger scars. Each session should be spaced out six to eight weeks apart.

Each session should be spaced out six to eight weeks apart.

Is It Painful?

While skin-needling (Mesotherapy) can cause some mild discomfort, it is usually tolerated well. For those with a low pain threshold, a topical anaesthetic can be applied.

What Are the Side Effects?

Skin needling causes only minor side effects, including mild swelling and bruising. Skin peeling may also occur.

Pre Care

Before undergoing Skin-needling (Mesotherapy), it is recommended that you use the appropriate skincare products to prepare your skin. This can help to maximise results and ensure you get the most out of the treatment. During your initial consultation, one of our staff members will inform you of the products that should be used.

A melanin inhibitor (we recommend Skinstitut Even Blend Serum) is recommended for clients with darker skin tones who are prone to hyperpigmentation.
1-2 weeks prior, avoid the following:
-Laser hair removal & waxing
-Chemical peels
-Cosmetic Injectables
-Sun exposure

Post Care

After your treatment, no recovery period or downtime is required. While you can resume your normal activities almost straight away, some redness may be experienced for several days. To combat this redness and help the healing process, an aftercare pack will be provided to you. Please follow the instructions of your therapist for post care which will include avoiding the following for 2-3 days: the sun, intensive physical activity, hot showers, swimming pools and other clinical cosmetic treatments.

Also, for 1 week after, avoid any skin care with active ingredients on the treated area.
