Microneedling

Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that’s used to treat skin concerns via collagen production

Also known as collagen induction therapy, this treatment may help those looking to reduce the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks.

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.

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.

"Crucially she listened to my concerns and was able to be open and honest about what we could achieve"

Really happy with my initial consultation with Regina. Regina not only took me through the whole process step by step but crucially she listened to my concerns and was able to be open and honest about what we could achieve with my hair density.

Very happy with my experience. Did a combined FUT and FUE transplant. Both the doctor and the technicians were fantastic from start to finish. Would recommend to anybody planning to do the same thing.

How it works

The perfect step before considering cosmetic surgery for anti-aging and other concerns

During the procedure, your doctor makes small pricks under the skin with a pen-like tool. The pinpricks are so small that you likely won’t notice them after the procedure. Your doctor will move the tool evenly across your skin so that the new skin that rejuvenates will be even, too.

Before getting started, your doctor will use a topical anesthetic to reduce the chances of pain. This is done about an hour before your treatment.

Your doctor may then apply a serum or calming treatment. In total, you can expect to be at the office for a couple of hours at least.

Microneedling is most often used on your face to target:

  • acne scars
  • age spots (also called “sun spots”)
  • fine lines and wrinkles
  • large pores
  • other types of scarsTrusted Source
  • reduced skin elasticity
  • uneven skin tone

In addition to facial concerns, microneedling is sometimes used to treat stretch marks in other areas of the body
