Microneedling is a non-invasive treatment designed to stimulate collagen and elastin, hyaluronic acid and improve the appearance of the skin by creating microscopic injuries that supercharge the skins self-healing capacity.
The SkinPen® device that we use is particularly effective for treating pigmentation, acne scarring, fine lines, wrinkles and stretch marks. Microneedling can also be carried out as a rejuvenation treatment for an overall boost.
Microneedling is safe for all skin types (including laser-resurfaced skin)
If you're someone who is self conscious of your stretch marks or scars, and would like a non-surgical option to reduce their appearance, this might be a possibility.
You will need a few sessions of microneedling to see noticeable results for stretch marks, scars and acne scars. After the process has been repeated, the dermal layers of the skin increase in thickness and it will gradually fade away, replaced by healthy, smooth skin.
We can use our SkinPen device to target the signs of ageing on the face and neck. Our proven technique restores firmness and tightness of the skin, resulting in a strengthened, more youthful look.
This unique treatment will generally improve the overall look of the skin and bring a new lease of life to your face.
As we age, our skin looses elasticity, preventing it from returning to its original tightness.
Our microneedling treatment is able to build firmer, tighter skin due to the new production of collagen and elastin.
We will discuss a tailored treatment plan with you during your free consultation.
The number of treatments required will vary from patient-to-patient, however, typically, a course of 3-6 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart is recommended to get the best results.
A Topical anaesthesia is applied for comfort 20 minutes prior to treatment.
Common risks are redness, slight swelling, blood spotting and irritation immediately during and after treatment.
There is little downtime required post procedure, however you may experience some redness for 24-48 hours afterwards. It may take up to two to three days depending on the extent of the treatment.
- Use only warm water to cleanse the face for the next 48 hours and pat dry using a clean towel
- Do not apply makeup for at least 12 hours

Depending on your cell renewal process and how many sessions you go for, it generally takes up to 8 weeks to see any results, however the regeneration process will continue over the following months giving a gradual enhancement.
