What is Medical Micro Needling?
As skin ages, the natural production of collagen declines. Micro needling produces thousands of micro channels in the skin, which in turn, stimulates the skin to naturally regenerate and repair itself. Indicated for the treatment of photo-ageing, scarring, stretch marks, pigmentation.

FAQs & Aftercare
Typically, a series of 3-4 treatments is recommended, depending upon your area of correction or concern. Your skincare professional will ultimately determine a treatment schedule based on your individual goals and desires.
Treatments are usually spaced 4-6 week intervals. Patients with deep wrinkles, advanced sun damage, stretch marks, or any type of scars, usually require up to 6 treatments to achieve the desired result.
Prior to your treatment your practitioner will apply a topical numbing agent. The majority of patients report feeling very little to no pain at all once the agent has been applied.
Medical micro needling produces results through the stimulation of growth factors and collagen, thereby promoting new skin cells to the surfaced. As our skin ages our collagen production naturally slows down. Your overall result will last longer when using an at home skin care regime. New collagen and elastin has been documented from just one treatment as much as one year later, after which, maintenance treatments are recommended.
Whilst the majority of patients see visible results after just one treatment, individual results may vary depending on individual skin health. Most commonly patients report seeing more obvious signs of skin regeneration within 2 -6 weeks after the first treatment and optimal results within 3 months. However, obvious changes are normally noted within a few days.
Medical micro needling is generally considered a no downtime treatment. Immediately after your treatment your skin will look moderately red such as a light sunburn. You practitioner will recommend a skincare regime post treatment based on your individual skin. This will also help with any redness you might experience due to the treatment.
