A needle you and your skin will love
Don’t like needles? Wait until you try skin needling. This minimally invasive collagen-inducing treatment is an effective way to achieve smoother, firmer skin and reduce scars and pigmentation. It was first recorded as being used as early as 1905, but it’s come a long way!
Our professional aesthetic and dermal therapists use SkinPen® and Vivace RF Skin Needling, two state-of-the-art micro-needling devices which are proven to offer dramatic results of skin rejuvenation. In just a few treatments, your complexion and confidence will be rejuvenated.
How does skin needling work?
Skin needling is a minimally invasive treatment that uses microneedles to make hundreds of tiny little pricks on the skin. These minor injuries stimulate new collagen production as the skin tries to heal, improving your skin’s elasticity, reducing wrinkles and increasing blood flow. Due to the speed of today’s skin needling devices, it’s possible to treat large areas of skin in a short period of time or target multiple places at once. We recommend a minimum of three sessions. You should expect to see some redness for 24-48 hours after each treatment.
We recommend you avoid sun exposure directly after this treatment. Your skin can also benefit from specific skin needling aftercare products, which your therapist will talk you through.
