What You Need to Know Microneedling

What is micro-needling?

Imagine a roller with little needles attached. This small device is pushed or rolled over your face and neck area to create controlled punctures. This forces the skin into its repair mode. Those with a fear of needles shouldn't discard this technique straight away as, depending on the device used, the microneedle length can vary from 0.5 to 3.0 mm, which is incredibly tiny compared to a traditional needle.

What are the benefits of micro-needling?

When your skin starts repairing itself it super-charges your body's natural ability to produce collagen and elastin, which provides that firm plumpness. It reduces the appearance of scars and stretch marks and creates a more youthful skin tone.

When should you avoid micro-needling?

Microneedling can be used on all skin colurs and skin types, however it should be avoided if one has an active infection on the skin such as impetigo, active and inflamed acne or rosacea.

How many and how often will you need to have a treatment?

The number of sessions depends on the skin condition, but typically you're looking at 3-5 treatments in 4-6 week intervals with maintenance treatments every 6-9 months.
