This treatment helps you restore collagen and elastin through a natural healing process.
Ultra fine, medical quality needles attached to a cylindrical roller create multiple skin punctures that induce a wound healing response that stimulates new collagen and elastin production. New collagen and elastin improve your skin quality and texture, making the skin feel firmer and smoother and help to repair enlarged pores, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, surgery scars and uneven skin texture and colour.
Most importantly skin needling involves minimal down time and very little discomfort so is a great alternative to VPL/Laser treatment.
How does skin needling work?
Derma-roller collagen induction therapy uses 200 very fine stainless steel needles to create micro-channels in the skin. The skin reacts to this by instigating regeneration of the cells.
It stimulates collagen naturally.
The cellular regeneration results in the formation of new tissue layers of
elastin and collagen as well as strengthening capillaries.

What should I use on my skin post treatment?
Look for skincare with no fragrances, preservatives and emulsifiers as these substances are not suitable to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin. High quality, pure and active ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin A, C, E provide perfect associations for skin repair and rejuvenation.
How many treatments will you need?
Generally a minimum of 3-4 treatments are required to achieve improvements in skin firmness & texture. Improvement of scars may take 5 or more treatments. Results accrue gradually because collagen production takes time. Most clients notice an improvement in their skin tone and texture within a few weeks of each treatment. The initially triggered new collagen will eventually be turned into a more permanent type of collagen over time. Substantial results often start to appear only after approximately ten months, after which results will continue to improve with ongoing treatments. Your initial in-salon treatments are spaced at fortnightly intervals. Perform at home needling 1-2 times per week to maintain and improve your results.
Should I just get the home kit?
That could be an option. According to my clients’ results, obviously it takes longer than if used in conjunction with in-salon treatments but it will definitely improve your skin quality and texture without a doubt.
