Skin needling is the ideal treatment for:
Skin needling (also known as skin microneedling or collagen induction therapy) is one of the most accessible and affordable aesthetic treatments, aimed at stimulating the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally. The skin needling device penetrates the skin in a vibrating manner, delivering up to 1,000 holes per second which promotes and stimulates collagen renewal.
Softly penetrating the surface layer of your skin helps to induce a natural healing effect that leaves skin feeling and looking softer, smoother and healthier. Skin needling achieves this by lightly penetrating the skin with tiny needles in a vibrating manner, delivering over 1,000 holes per second into the skin, which promotes collagen renewal while stimulating the skin to regenerate itself. This is also why it's known as collagen induction therapy!
The procedure takes around 30 minutes and is painless.
Meso AquaGold therapy is a no-downtime mesotherapy treatment that uses 24-carat gold micro-needles to infuse concentrated, high-quality active substances completely customised to what your skin needs. This method ensures the products are applied into your skin before the micro-injuries created by the thin needles can close up.
Meso AquaGold helps:
This all results in a plumper and even skin complexion. We use a comprehensive range of solutions and specific active substances in sterile ampoules to deliver a high level of therapeutic response. Due to the very small size of the needles that are coated in hypoallergenic 24-carat gold, there is virtually no downtime.
The treatment is gentler your standard therapy, since the needles are administered perpendicular to the skin which allows the ingredients to distribute farther and more equally into the dermis. This stimulates cell renewal in the top layer of the skin. With this method, there are no micro-tears inflicted on the skin, significantly reducing the chance of excessive redness or bleeding.
Meso AquaGold can be applied to the neck, chest, face, and around the eyes. Only one session is typically required and the results last up to six months.
Available at select locations.
Skin needling stimulates collagen renewal to improve overall skin texture and create a brighter, healthier appearance.
Transporting active ingredients deep into your skin, skin needling improves skin tone, softens fine lines and strengthens the protective barrier of your skin.
Prompting the auto-repair mechanisms of your skin, skin needling visibly improves the appearance of acne scars, pigmentation and other little imperfections.
This depends on the skin concern but your dermal therapist will assist you with a plan after they have assessed your skin.
We recommend skin needling treatments every four weeks for optimum results.
To ensure effective treatment, it is desirable that there will be fine pin point bleeding (similar to a very superficial graze) to the area treated with skin needling.
Usually the skin will be pink for 24-48 hours, and feel warmer and tighter than usual. Bruising is rare but there may be minor swelling. We advise a light dressing for the immediate post-treatment period.
After skin needling treatment, your body will naturally start to regenerate and repair the skin, working below the surface. This means new collagen and elastin is formed, blood supply is enhanced, and new skin cells are regenerated. It usually takes up to six weeks before any visible signs of repair are seen, and this will continue over the following months.
Skin needling is not suitable for anyone with an untreated skin cancer on the treatment area, anyone allergic to topical local anaesthetics, or any patient on high dose corticosteroids.
Skin needling is a minimally invasive treatment.
All skin needling device cartridges utilise disposable needle tips, so there are no risks of cross contamination or infection. The skin is thoroughly cleansed with an antiseptic prior to the micro needling procedure. It is suitable for almost all skin types, and is non-ablative.
Your doctor may advise antiviral or antibiotic prophylaxis if you are prone to cold sores, staph infections, or have any associated medical conditions. Each session takes about 30 minutes. We give our patients the option to recover under our LED device, which hastens recovery and improves skin collagen.
Skin needling and cosmetic injectables have very different effects, and both treatments target different concerns in different ways. Skin needling is a non-invasive treatment that stimulates collagen renewal on the skin's surface, while injectables administer a filler or neurotoxin under the skin to plump out wrinkles or stabilise muscle movement. You should speak to your doctor or dermal clinician about which treatment is right for you! Skin needling is ideal for refreshing your skin.
The benefits of skin needling last about three to five months, depending on how well you maintain your skin health between treatments and the condition of your skin.
No, skin needling is beneficial for refining fine lines and wrinkles and should not make your wrinkles worse.
Yes, skin needling is safe and effective in skin of all ages. It can be a good idea to start skin needling treatments in your 20s or 30s, when you can enjoy the best boost in collagen production.
Usually there isn’t any downtime with this treatment - only some redness that should be gone within a day.
