FAQs

What are the benefits of medical micro-needling?

  • Natural regeneration
  • Minimal downtime / excellent convenience
  • Compliments other treatments: Botox, fillers, laser/ light, peels

 

How is it carried out?

Topical anaesthetic is used to numb the skin for a period of approximately 20-30 minutes, after which time an advanced micro-medical skin needling device is used to stimulate the skin in order to enact the skin’s own regeneration and repair processes.

Procedure takes 30-45 minutes per session.

 

 

When can I start to notice the results?

Micro-needling makes use of the body’s own repair system therefore the following are approximate time scale for skin changes and improvement.

Time Scale Skin Changes & Improvement
Day 1 to 2 (normally 24 hrs) Redness and mild swelling subsides
Day 2 to 7 Increased exfoliation & dryness
1 Week onwards Improvement in texture and tone begins
3 Weeks onwards Improvement in pigmentation begins
6 Weeks onwards Improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, scarring begins

How many treatments will I need?

We usually recommend at least 3 sessions before optimum results are seen.

Natural regeneration can take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of rejuvenation and repair can be seen. The process of regeneration can continue over a period of months.
