Know The Facts
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is the use of tiny needles to create a controlled, micro-injury on the skin surface. It works by stimulating collagen and elastin production for plumper, more radiant skin.
Who can benefit from Microneedling?
Everyone can benefit from this treatment but it is especially effective on those with acne scarring, pigmentation issues, large pores, and fine lines/wrinkles.
Microneedling also improves the effectiveness of skincare products, as it creates a ‘fast-track’ channel which allows products to be deeply penetrated into the skin.
When can I expect to see results?
Results from microneedling can usually be seen within a week of treatment. We usually recommend a course of 3-6 sessions, depending on the severity of your skin concerns.

BUY A COURSE
95% of customers prefer to buy a course than individual sessions. This is because a course guarantees better results.
What is Microneedling good for?
Microneedling stimulates natural collagen and elastin in the skin. It helps remove fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring and pigmentation issues. Microneedling causes trauma to the skin so the skins natural reaction is to produce collagen which helps to fight and protect.
What skin concerns does Microneedling treat?
Microneedling can treat all kinds of skin concerns and is suitable for any skin type. The main concerns that we treat are acne, scarring, pigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles. We can also treat stretch marks and keloid scars.
What can I expect during my treatment?
Microneedling is a results-driven treatment so isn’t as relaxing as other facial treatments. It is completely normal to experience a little discomfort, most people describe it as a burning sensation. Throughout the treatment, your therapist will be checking to see how your skin is feeling.
How do I care for my skin after Microneedling?
It is important to avoid touching your face to prevent bacteria from spreading. We also recommend avoiding make-up for at least 12 hours after treatment, avoid exercise 24 hours after treatment and avoid sun-beds for up to 3 days after treatment.
How many treatments do I need?
To massively improve texture and overall appearance, we would recommend a course of 6 and have a session every 2-4 weeks for optimum results.
Is at-home Microneedling with a dermaroller safe?
We would always recommend coming into the clinic to see one of our specialists when it comes to Microneedling. The needles on the home equipment are often not long enough to penetrate the skin deep enough, so you are almost causing unnecessary trauma to the skin. It is also extremely important that your equipment is sterile, so we recommend coming into the clinic, where we can ensure all equipment is sterile and safe for you.
