Skin needling

Sometimes our skin just needs a bit of a boost – whether we’re feeling dull or have particular skin concerns such as scarring or pigmentation, skin needling is an effective way to refresh and boost our complextion. With skin needling, we use tiny micro-punctures to encourage cell renewal and stimulate the skin’s production of collagen and elastin (another key protein). This rejuvenating treatment reduces fine lines, acne scarring, pigmentation, stretch marks and can even out the skin tone.

Benefits of
skin needling

Long lasting results

Over the course of four to six sessions, you’ll notice your skin tone and texture improve as your collagen and elastin production increases. Results can be visible just one week after your first treatment, but maximum results will be visible a few weeks after your final treatment. Your new plumped, youthful complexion will last you for up to a year, with touch-up treatments recommended around the 6-12 month mark.

Safe and effective

With skin needling, we’re simply using your skin’s natural healing and regenerating ability to refresh your complexion and target imperfections. Because of this, it’s an extremely safe treatment, with very mild side effects. You may experience some tightness, redness and sensitivity which is expected to subside within two days of the treatment.
