Skin Needling, or Collagen Induction Therapy, is a skin rejuvenation procedure developed by plastic surgeons. It stimulates natural skin repair by increasing the body’s own collagen and elastin production. Skin Needling is an incredibly powerful treatment when, as a result of skin puncturing, the body floods the microscopic puncture holes with collagen, elastin and beneficial nutrients. The skin not only looks more youthful with more even skin tone and texture, it also significantly improves acne scarring and stretch marks by 94% which is quite remarkable. Skin rejuvenation may be seen as soon as early as two weeks and the effects last as long as 6-8 months after the skin needling procedure. A minimum of 4 – 6 weeks is recommended between treatments as it takes that long for new natural collagen to form. A few consecutive treatments will give the best results.
Skin needling is the next best treatment before a facelift. It treats:
- Ageing sagging skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Smoker’s lines around the lips
- Skin tightening and rejuvenation
- Large pores
- Stretch marks
- Acne scarring
- Frown lines
- Increases delivery of topical nutrients and skincare products
The actual skin needling is well tolerated and takes up to 30 minutes to complete…..
During the skin needling procedure, the skin is punctured in a specific pattern and certain depth using a skin needling dermapen. As each fine needle punctures the skin, it creates a channel or micro-wound stimulating skin cell regeneration. Using the dermapen treatment achieves incredible results for under the eyes and above the lip as well.
- Skin needling is well tolerated by patients but dryness, scaling, and some redness may be noticed after treatment, lasting for a couple of days depending on the depth of penetration of the needles. Mineral make-up can be applied to the skin after the treatment
- A cosmeceutical sun protection cream is recommended for several weeks
- For the following few days after the skin needling procedure, the face should be cleaned with a gentle cleanser (no AHAs). We recommend a healing soothing gel and Vitamin B serum. The following day, the face may be cleansed and make-up can be applied as usual.
Burn scars are slow to respond. It can take up to 6 months to 1 year to see the final results from a single treatment.

RF Skin Tightening Facial Treatment
RF skin tightening treatments are a popular non-surgical option for those seeking a solution to ageing skin. The treatments concentrate radio waves through the upper layers of the skin to the dermis in order to heat the skin. RF then induces a “wound healing” response that stimulates new collagen and elastin production resulting in tightening of your skin.
