Skin Needling: A Rejuvenation Technique for Acne, Stretch Marks & Wrinkles
Skin needling is a technique employed at The Skin Boutique to refresh and repair damaged skin with the ultimate goal of a radiant, more youthful appearance. It is a dermal therapy designed to optimise the skin’s regeneration to promote a firmer, plumper aesthetic. This treatment is minimally invasive – it is a relatively pain-free, rejuvenating procedure that will help prime your skin to match your skin goals. The appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scarring will be minimised and improved over the course of your treatment.
What does skin needling do?
The treatment is often known as ‘collagen induction therapy’. The Skin Boutique uses a device called the M-Derma that delivers oscillating micro-needles to gently pierce the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production. It is designed to make the most out of your skin by gently correcting skin defects, wrinkles and scarring in a near-painless way. With the use of the medical device, small, even punctures are created with minimal damage to the upper layers of the skin. This effectively acts to ‘heal’ wounds in line with how your epidermis operates. The ultimate result is the increasing production of naturally occurring collagen and elastin.
Many clients ask, ‘Does skin needling hurt?’ Skin needling is designed to optimise comfort and takes place under strict health and safety guidelines, and includes topical numbing. It is a minimally invasive procedure that promotes the growth factor of collagen and elastin. Your clinician will work with you at all times to ensure you are comfortable and supported during the process. The procedure is not a once-off – this is an ongoing skin health tool that will reduce scarring and wrinkles over time to promote healthy and refreshed looking skin. Long term benefits of the treatment will be noticeable, and they will speak of the wholistic wellbeing of your skin. After the treatment, you will experience some redness and warmth as your skin naturally responds to the stimulation and heals.
Why Choose Skin Needling Over Other Treatments?
Skin Needling is a minimally invasive treatment targeting blood platelets, releasing growth factors and initiating a healing response to rejuvenate the skin. As the treatment specifically targets and relies on your skins natural healing response. The procedure can be performed in our salon with only 2-4 weeks of preparation. A standard treatment takes about 60 minutes, including numbing time. However, some of the results can be effective immediately unlike the wait time of other advanced treatments like Cosmetic Injectables. The treatment is a fantastic introduction to advanced skin treatments.
What is skin needling good for?
You will notice a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles over the course of your treatments. Your skin tone will be smoothed, and your texture will be refined. The reduction of the appearance of scar tissue, including acne scars and potentially stretch marks, will improve overtime as well.
