Skiin is proud to offer microneedling at our cosmetic clinic using the latest micro/skin needling technology, helping to treat everything from lines and wrinkles through to uneven pigmentation. Our micro/skin needling machine is imported from Germany and can be used for Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) and Scar Reduction Therapy (SRT).
Skin needling is performed with a vibrational stamping device which creates fine micro channels in the skin, helping to break old scar tissue while simultaneously inducing growth factors. In addition to stimulating collagen and softening facial scars, this non-invasive procedure also results in improved blood supply, making it a suitable treatment option for a range of skin concerns and conditions.
At Skiin, we use the micro/skin needling system for:
When you visit Skiin for a microneedling treatment, we’ll first talk to you to determine which therapy (CIT or SRT) should be used in order to achieve the best results for your skin concern. We then cleanse and sterilise the treatment area before applying a topical anaesthetic to ensure a painless experience. Next, the tip of the micro/skin needling device is applied to the skin to create micro-channels while simultaneously infusing the skin with a rejuvenating solution. After the treatment, a cooling mask is applied to soothe the skin.
Skin needling is ideal for patients who wish to minimise scarring, rejuvenate the skin, reduce pore size and more.
A series of 4 to 6 treatments is suggested, performed generally 6 to 8 weeks apart depending on your clinician’s recommendation.
At Skiin, we use the Dermapen machine, which has been proven to be safe and effective. Our clinic uses only the world’s best technologies from popular brands such as Cutera and Skiintera to achieve the best results.
While skin needling can be uncomfortable, it is generally well tolerated. There is a small amount of downtime depending on the depth of the treatment.
It takes at least four weeks to see noticeable results. However, approximately 48 to 72 hours after the treatment, you’ll experience an increase in collagen production.
Our dermal clinicians suggest coming in for a consultation prior to having skin needling done to determine if you’re a good candidate. You’ll also be prepped on what you need to do before commencing treatment.
