A game-changing collagen and elastin-boosting treatment that’ll transform the heck out of your complexion!
Give me the lowdown
If you’re after a truly transformative treatment that’ll address even the most frustrating of skin concerns AND give you the tone and texture of your dreams, skin needling is where it’s at! This minimally-invasive procedure creates teeny-tiny microscopic holes in the skin, causing micro injuries that trigger the natural wound healing response and stimulate tissue generation through a nifty process called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). This helps break down the old and damaged strands of collagen and stimulates the production of new collagen (and we all know that more collagen = a plumper, smoother and more radiant looking complexion). One of the great things about skin needling is that the outer layer of skin remains intact, removing most of the risks and negative side effects. Even more impressive, tissue remodelling continues for months following your treatment, continuing to improve the quality and amount of collagen and elastin in the skin. Talk about getting some serious bang for your buck!
Is it right for me?
Skin Needling is the perfect rejuvenating treatment for all skin types including ageing skin, enlarged pores, acne, scarring, stubborn pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin texture and stretch marks. Also great for clearing congestion! An initial consultation by one of our skin specialists is essential prior to your skin needling treatment to ensure your specific concerns are addressed and that your skin is adequately prepped for the best possible results.
Did somebody say benefits?
Boosts collagen and elastin levels Clears congested skin Improves firmness and skin texture Breaks down scar tissue to minimise acne scarring, stretch marks and surgical scars Excellent for kicking pigmentation in the butt, including melasma! Results continue to improve for months following your treatment May result in excessive time in front of the mirror (admiring that bangin’ complexion!)
How many treatments will I need?
This will depend on your skin type and concerns, however best results are usually seen from three treatments, spaced about 4-6 weeks apart. When you come in for your initial consultation, we’ll create a tailored treatment plan just for you!
Is there any downtime?
You can expect very minimal downtime after your skin needling treatment other than an extra little rosy glow that will subside over 24 hours. Results will continue to improve with each treatment. Depending on the individual you may experience mild redness and swelling for up to 4 days post treatment, bruising, mild crusting and scabbing 2-3 days post treatment, short-term skin dryness, tightness, itching and burning, skin peeling and short-term darkening of skin pigmentation (followed by lightening) The level of discomfort felt during skin needling will vary from person to person, but we’d rate the pain around three out of ten without local anaesthetic.
Handy to know
Safe for babes who are pregnant or breast-feeding! We exclusively use SkinPen in-clinic as it’s the only needling device recognised by the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods and can only be used by a medically-trained practitioner. It’s also a heck of a lot safer and produces more substantial results!
SC Pro Tip
To boost your skin needling results, combine with other in-clinic treatments like Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) or Mesotherapy for next-level regenerative effects!
