WHAT IS SKIN NEEDLING?
Our levels of collagen and elastin diminish as we age which eventually leads to sagging and hollows in the skin. Your skin has a self-rejuvenating function that is capable of significantly repairing the reduction of collagen and elastin. Our skin also has a great function in reducing blemishes caused by acne, trauma, pigmentation and a range of other ailments. The Skin Pen is a preferred device as it is able to enhance the process of collagen induction.
Skin needling consists of multiple fine needles that vertically enter the skin with an automatic vibrating spring function. The Skin Pen creates controlled micro wounds that enable the ingredients that we infuse to penetrate up to 300% deeper into your skin. The benefit of adjustable needle depths with Skin Pen allows for a treatment tailored to your individual needs.
As your skin heals, it produces collagen which forms a new layer of fresh tissue, creating a more youthful appearance on the surface and fighting antibodies beneath.

WHAT WILL MY SKIN LOOK LIKE AFTER THE TREATMENT?
Immediately post treatment the skin will appear red and will feel sunburnt. The redness can last anywhere from 24-48hrs depending on the depth of treatment. Day 3-5 you can experience a tight, dry sensation with potential mild to moderate flaking. If your therapist upgrades your treatment with a Environ peel add-on you will expect moderate flaking on days 3-5. Mild breakouts can also be experienced due to the stimulation of the treatment.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE THIS TREATMENT?
It is recommended to perform skin needling treatments every 4-6 weeks for maximum results. Please note we will not perform Skin Needling if it has been less than 28 days.
