What Are The Side Effects of Skin Needling?
Get in touch with us
With a change in season, your skin is ready for a textural turnover. Dullness and uneven texture can leave you feeling and looking fab to drab. Skin Needling gives you back your glow by resurfacing and reviving your skin’s natural rejuvenation process.
However the thought of the side effects from Skin Needling may seem overwhelming so we answer your questions: let’s begin by understanding the process.
What is Skin Needling?
Skin Needling stimulates the rejuvenation of the skin through the use of innovative MediPro technology. An automated head of microneedles safely puncture the outer layer of the skin, triggering the body’s natural collagen production, effectively targeting priorities such as dullness, uneven skin tone and acne scars.
With frequent exposure to the sun, environmental pollutants or even the body’s natural ageing process, natural elastin, hyaluronic acid, collagen production levels diminish which results in lacklustre, sagging skin.
Is Skin Needling Suitable for My Skin?
Skin Needling is suited to most skin tones and types. Dependant on your priorities this must have treatment targets
- Large open pores
- Dryness and dehydration
- Acne scarring
- Pigmentation and uneven skin tone
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines
- Promotes collagen production
- Offers overall rejuvenation
- Lacklustre skin
Does Skin Needling Tear My Skin?
No, however Dermarollers do. The mechanical rolling movement of microneedles at an angle creates ‘tearing’ wounds. Using the innovative MediPro pen technology which comprises of an automated head of microneedles, tiny micro wounds are made into the skin which then stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen. Compared to Dermarollers, Skin Needling is performed by qualified clinical therapists who provide aftercare support.

What does skin needling do? Put your best face forward

Bring your skin out of hibernation with Skin Needling.
Skin Needling is a non-invasive treatment that uses the MediPro Dermapen technology to gently penetrate the skin, creating tiny micro wounds. This triggers cellular renewal, collagen production and reduces uneven skin texture as well as offering overall skin rejuvenation.
With prolonged exposure to the Sun and environmental pollutants, the skin is prone to signs of premature ageing such as wrinkles and loss of elasticity due to the decrease in collagen production.
However, the controlled trauma created by skin needling reconditions the first layer of the skin by enhancing the body’s natural ability to produce collagen.
What is collagen and why is it important?
Collagen, alongside with hyaluronic acid and elastin is responsible for the resiliency of the skin tissue. This natural capability to repair and generate new skin cells becomes compromised when exposed to environmental and lifestyle factors over time. Whilst the factors that are responsible for collagen loss are often hard to avoid, by promoting its production levels, regular cellular repair and renewal is ensured, strengthening your skin’s defense against signs of premature ageing.
By enhancing the skin’s natural ability to rejuvenate, skin needling treats a wide range of priorities such as
- Improving fine lines and wrinkles
- Reducing the depth of indented acne scars
- Lightening pigmentation and evening out uneven texture
[vc_single_image image=”16209″ img_size=”full”]Is skin needling safe?
Yes. Our treatments are performed by qualified clinical therapists and the innovative Dermapen technology only reaches the top layer of the skin as compared to other heat treatments which destroy the top layer of the skin (link to Fractional RF vs Fraxel). Invasive ablative laser treatments will remove the top layer of the skin’s surface by heating the cells to a boiling point, effectively vaporising the skin – sounds painful? The post treatment images speak for themselves – ouch!
We recommend LED Light Therapy post skin needling as it accelerates the healing process, reduces redness and encourages cellular repair, allowing you to return to your day in no time!
Shining the light on LED Light Therapy benefits
The innovative Lutronic Healite technology employs the use of LED light energy wavelengths to refresh the skin. There are two main colours of LED lights used which include:
- Yellow light therapy
Yellow light therapy reduces redness, decreasing post treatment down time.
- Blue light therapy
Blue light therapy focuses on reducing acne causing bacteria, minimising future chances of breakouts.
How long is the treatment and aftercare process?
Treatment varies from 40 to 60 minutes and to achieve optimum results, we recommend 4-6 sessions once monthly. Regular sessions will enhance and maintain the skin’s resiliency in being able to heal itself.With a range of treatment programs ranging from a single session to one that provides maximum results, there’s something for all of us! Book in a complimentary consultation with one of our qualified clinicians today to revive the glow in your skin without taking too much time out of your day!
