Microneedling

What is Microneedling?

Medical microneedling involves using a microneedling device to create a controlled injury to the skin, triggering the production of new collagen and elastin. Microneedling treatments cause minimal damage to the skin and through the controlled injury, initiates the healing process. The treatment is mostly for the face, although can be used to treat skin imperfections on other parts of the body. Some treatable skin concerns with Microneedling include acne scars, stretch marks and the signs of ageing.

Microneedling is suitable for all skin types and is an effective skin rejuvenation treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Microneedling uses tiny needles on a handheld device that makes controlled micro-channels (tiny holes) in the skin where ageing has begun to reveal itself. This causes the skin to react by stimulating collagen and elastin to send to the area to heal it. Once this happens, the collagen adds volume to the skin, and the elastin helps return the skin to its original state.

Treatment times will vary on patient, area of the body being treated and penetration depth but most treatments are performed within 30 minutes.
