What is Microneedling?

Microneedling (also known as skin needling or collagen induction therapy) is a type of treatment that uses small needles to cause tiny punctures in the skin. These small contact points encourage the body to create a wound healing response and renew the skin cells. As your skin repairs, the production of collagen and elastin is triggered to give an almost immediate plumping effect. It can also help tackle other skin damage such as scarring, dark marks, sun damage and ageing.

Benefits of Microneedling
Microneedling is most commonly used to treat the following skin conditions:

Dull skin: Rejuvenate tired and dull skin and combat the initial signs of ageing.

Wrinkles: Fine lines and wrinkles on the face can be visibly reduced, as Microneedling triggers collagen production.

Scarring: Scars from acne and Chicken Pox can be improved and an uneven texture can be smoothed out with Microneedling.

Pigmentation: Can help to fade dark patches such as pigmentation due to sun damage or ageing.

Microneedling is a great treatment for you if you have darker skin because it doesn’t involve peels or lasers, which can cause pigmentation issues.

Who would be suitable for a Microneedling treatment?

Microneedling is popular among clients because it’s a less abrasive treatment than lasers and chemical peels, with minimal downtime – usually, clients will have a little bit of redness for 24–48 hours afterwards. The treatment is fast too, taking between 30–60 minutes depending on the area treated, and the results can be seen from four to six weeks. It’s the ultra-fast treatment length that makes Microneedling a no-brainer for beauty therapists too. It’s cost-effective, as it takes so little time to perform, and clients are consistently impressed with the results.

Although Microneedling is relatively safe, there are contraindications. “Patients with active skin conditions such as acne and acute chronic skin disease should wait until it’s settled; pregnant women and those breastfeeding should avoid Microneedling altogether; and clients with previous keloid scarring, patients on anti-coagulants, and those currently undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy would be contraindicated

  • What does the procedure involve?

    Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed and a topical local anaesthetic cream will be applied to the area being treated. This is left on for around 20 minutes to take effect. The cream is removed and the needling starts, which can take anything from 10 to 30 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. The roller is repeatedly rolled over the skin to produce thousands of micro-medical needle-columns in the skin. Each column will penetrate into the dermis of the skin and will be approximately 0.1mm in width. The column will close rapidly enabling the skin to recover quickly – often in the same day. The treated skin will show micro bleeding and this is the required end point of the treatment. The skin will be cleansed following the treatment, and the appropriate skin care applied, enabling the products to sink deep into the dermal layers.

    How many treatments do I need and how often can Medical Micro Micro-Needling procedures be repeated?

    Micro-needling can be safely repeated every 4-6 weeks as needed. Collagen induction requires at least 3 treatments, while scar reduction requires between 3 and 6. 4 to 6 weeks should pass between one treatment and the next, and the number of treatments needed depends on individual cases. Micro-needling can be used on all parts of the body (neck, décolleté, arms, legs, etc). Usually results begin to appear after the first treatment.
