Roll back the years with micro-needling collagen induction therapy.
Micro-needling (or skin needling) is your go-to treatment for instantly firmer, smoother skin! Known for its incredible ability to stimulate the growth of collagen and elastin, micro-needling delivers real results in overall skin rejuvenation. Not only will this leave you glowing, it can also reduce scarring, stretch marks, blackheads, open pores, fine lines, hyperpigmentation and more. Due to the speed of the device, treatments are fast, comfortable and able to target large or multiple areas at once.
What Micro-needling can do for you.
Reduce imperfections – Nanopore micro-needling promotes the production of collagen and elastin through the natural auto-repair mechanisms of the skin, reducing the appearance of imperfections.
Increased effectiveness of active ingredients – Nanopore micro-needling transports the active ingredients from your treatment into the deepest layers of the skin, essentially enhancing product effectiveness instantaneously.
Improved communication between skin cells – Sends out signals that increase the communication between the cells responsible for maintaining the barrier function, pigmentation, collagen and elastin in the skin.
How it works
The key to more radiant skin is collagen production.
Micro-needling works by using tiny needles to create small perforations, or ‘micro-channels’ in the skin. This stimulates the healing response of the deeper layers and encourages your skin to make new, collagen-rich tissue.
The micro-channels created during the treatment allow active ingredients from your skincare products to penetrate to the deepest layers of the skin to deliver even more powerful results. Our Nanopore micro-needling device, available at select clinics, works at such a high speed you do not need anaesthetic cream before treatment.
Optimising your results
Let’s work together to see the changes you deserve.
For truly visible results, we recommend a minimum of three treatments to continually build your collagen and elastin. Recovery time for micro-needling is minimal. Thanks to the powerful skin stimulation, expect to some redness for 24-48 hours post treatment before the healing begins and the new, glowing skin starts to reveal itself. Your skin will also be more sensitive to the sun post-treatment, so ensure you apply an SPF50, such as the Balense UV Defiance, when you’re out and about.
Can micro-needling reduce stretch marks on the body?
Yes. Micro-needling effectively helps to build the tissue within the stretch marks though the production of collagen. This builds up the indentation and reduces the colour of the stretch marks, in some cases making them disappear completely.
How long are the micro-needling treatments and what is the downtime?
Total treatment time is 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area and there is little to no downtime. Slight redness and warmth to the skin may be experienced after your session, and dryness can be experienced a few days post-treatment.
How does micro-needling differ from fractional RF?
Both treatments address concerns of loose crepey skin, scars, fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, acne scars, open pores. However, if you are looking for a more targeted treatment, Fractional RF is best for overall appearance and general redness while Nanopore micro-needling is best for darker skin tones and pigmentation or sun damage. As always we strongly recommend that you take advantage of our free consultations so that our technicians can help you select the best treatment suited to your wants and needs.
Can micro-needling treat the delicate dark circles under the eye?
Only the Nanopore micro-needling device can treat the eye contour. Unlike other types of micro-needling devices, Nanopore is one of the first treatments of its kind that can target the more sensitive areas around the eye thanks to its adjustable needle depth and increased oscillation (speed). The result for the eye contour is a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, along with a healthier, tighter-looking appearance.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments required will depend on your individual requirements and this will be discussed during your initial consultation. Typically, we recommend a treatment course of 3-6 sessions, at monthly intervals.
