A skin rejuvenation treatment to help with acne scarring & stretch marks.
Medical microneedling (which is also known as dermal rollering) is a clinically proven aesthetic therapy that can benefit a wide range of skin conditions – but is often used to improve the look of scarring, acne and stretch marks.
The microneedling procedure is completely safe. Microneedling works by stimulating your body’s natural repair mechanisms, which results in the skin’s thickness being increased by up to 80% while smoothing the appearance of scars, reducing stretch marks and minimising the appearance of wrinkles.
Depending on the area you want to be treated, the therapist will use either a manual derma-roller or a medical micro-needling device to make thousands of tiny microscopic needle marks in your skin, designed to stimulate the production of collagen and rejuvenate your skin naturally.
These tiny punctures heal very fast and as they repair, they boost the formation of new collagen and the growth of the thin layer of cells which line the capillaries and blood vessels. The new capillaries provide a better blood supply to your skin. It can take up to six weeks to see any visible changes and the process will carry on for months, over time giving you the appearance of brighter, healthier skin.
What happens during a microneedling treatment?
Your skin will be numbed with a special cream before the microneedling procedure begins and so you shouldn’t feel any pain while the treatment is being carried out. You could start to feel some discomfort, warmth or a prickling sensation as the procedure goes on and the cream starts to wear off, so if that happens, tell the therapist. You might also get some bleeding but that’s completely normal.
Most clients will need between 3-6 treatments for the best results & you will leave 4 weeks in-between.
We can do a skin care plan up for your skin concerns & do other treatments in between your micro needling.

Is Micro needling safe?
Yes Micro-needling is safe as long as the therapist has been correctly trained in this treatment.
Is it painful?
We always numb the area before doing a treatment so you should not feel much at all!
How soon can I see the results?
The skin should slowly repair itself over a few days & clients will see a rounder and fuller skin tone. In reality, patients won’t see the final results until several months have passed. The body simply needs time to replace the damaged skin. Every person has a slightly different healing time so patients should remain patient about the results.
Best results will show after a course of 3 treatments with a month in-between each one.
How does microneedling work?
Micro-needling involves a small, handheld wand that holds 12 needles. We will slowly glide this device across the body as it makes tiny punctures in the skin. The tiny injuries occurring on the skin will stimulate the body’s natural healing processes – a controlled trauma. As result, the skin appears smoother and healthier as elastin and collagen fill in the injured areas. It’s these components that create a youthful look & help rejuvenate the skin.
