This procedure works by stimulating the wound healing response in your skin. The needling device created micro punctures in your skin, which your body treats as an injury. In doing so, it kicks off the inflammatory response, lots of juicy, fresh collagen and results in skin regeneration.
It is also known as Collagen Induction or Scar Reduction therapy, as it is well known for the revision of ageing and acne scars / general scarring. We can also use this device in the treatment of stubborn pigmentation and on the body to revise stretchmarks, sagging skin and scars on the body.
We use the SkinPen device for of our skin needling treatments. This is a vibrational stamping device which creates very fine micro channels into the skin to help induce growth factors and stimulate collagen in the skin. It is a medical grade, TGA approved device which has been clinically trialed and proven effective to treat a variety of conditions.
We provide you with pre and post treatment care, including instructions on how to apply a topical numbing cream at home prior to your treatment if you choose to do so. We can no longer apply any topical numbing cream in clinic, due to regulations. The device is sterilized, and all consumables are disposable for this treatment.
Your skin will immediate appear red for approximately 24 hours post treatment, with appropriate home care this will resolve into a pink colour after the first day as slowly fade away after 2-3 days. You are welcome to use a mineral make up after the first 24hrs and must use the recommended home care to ensure optimal results.
We will begin to see improvements in your skin within a few weeks of treatment, but these results can continue to improve for 6-12 months post treatment if you continue with maintenance treatments and active home care serums.
Depending on your skin concern we may recommend anywhere between 3 – 5 needling sessions and yearly for maintenance. When we are treating acne scarring or deep lines or wrinkles these may be at 8 weeks intervals or further apart for less severe concerns.
