Microneedling is an innovative collagen induction therapy that allows your skin to use its own repair mechanism to regenerate and heal itself, creating an abundant amount of growth factors that re-instigate new skin, collagen – elastin fibers and blood supply.
We use a medical-grade state-of-the-art precision tool that penetrates the skin with sterile microscopic needles, stimulating the production of collagen and new skin cells – treating fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, superficial pigmentation and stretch marks to revitalize overall skin texture.

What areas of the body can be treated?
Microneedling can be done on all parts of the body, including: face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back.
How will I look after the treatment?
Most people will experience mild redness and mild swelling in a similar way as a mild sunburn for up to 24-48 hours and there may be minimal pin-point bleeding, depending on the condition being treated. Your skin will feel noticeably smoother and firmer and imperfections will be less visible. Depending on your skin condition, full effects won’t be seen until a few weeks later, over the course of treatments set by you and your skin specialist. As everyone’s skin heals differently collagen reproduction may take a few weeks.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Some patients only require a single treatment once per year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart.
For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6-week intervals.
