What Is Micro-Needling?

Micro-Needling is a procedure that involves puncturing the skin multiple times with small needles to induce collagen production and allow for better product penetration.

Is Micro-Needling Safe?

Yes micro-needling is safe.

However, as with any other medical treatment, there are always possible risks and side effects.  It is necessary for your doctor or therapist to explain these possible risks and side effects to you in full before your treatment.

What Is Micro-Needling Used For?

Micro-Needling may be used for any condition where the collagen and elastin fibers inside the skin are damaged or compromised.  Micro-Needling is one of the most effective treatments for anti-ageing as well as scar & stretchmark removal.

This type of treatment is also used to increase product penetration, making your home care regime 100 times more effective. 

How Does Micro-Needling Work?

Tiny needles are used to puncture the skin multiple times to create micro-wounds on the surface of the skin.  As these micro-wounds are created, it stimulates the body's natural wound healing processes, resulting in increased cell turnover as well as increased collagen & elastin production.

How Many Treatments Will I Need To Achieve Optimal Results?

Depending on the severity of ageing or scarring, it is advised to have 4 - 6 treatments for optimal results.

Is There Any Downtime After A Micro-Needling Procedure?

Generally there is no down time after micro-needling.  The skin may be red and sensitive for a few days.

If a more invasive treatment is needed, there may be approximately 3 - 5  days down time.

What Areas Can Be Treated?

Any area of the face and body can be treated.

How Long Does Each Procedure Take?

A topical anesthetic is applied for approximately 45 minutes, there after the treatment usually takes 30 minutes.

How Soon Will I See Results?

Results may be seen within a few days after the treatment as the skin is well hydrated and an increase in blood circulation gives the skin a natural glow.

Final results may be seen approximately 3 months after treatment as it takes 3 months for collagen and elastin to repair and renew itself.
