Skin needling is a skin rejuvenation treatment that is suitable for aged skin, wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, surgical scars, large pores and uneven skin texture and tone. This treatment helps to support the regeneration of collagen and elastin through the skin’s natural healing process.

What does the treatment involve?
After the application of numbing cream which will be given some time to work, your skin will be cleansed before medical grade stainless steel micro needles are passed across the skin infusing vitamin B serum through the tiny channels created. This process allows for increased product penetration and activates the skin’s healing response triggering the production of collagen and elastin.
The treatment is generally tolerated very well and the depth of treatment can be altered if needed.
How long will the procedure take?
The procedure takes about 45 – 60 minutes.
What to expect after treatment?
On the day of treatment pin point bleeding is expected and down time is between 2 and 5 day, your skin may feel rough and tight in this time.
