Get in touch with us

    With a change in season, your skin is ready for a textural turnover. Dullness and uneven texture can leave you feeling and looking fab to drab. Skin Needling gives you back your glow by resurfacing and reviving your skin’s natural rejuvenation process. However the thought of the side effects of Skin Needling may seem overwhelming so we answer your questions: let’s begin by understanding the process.

    What is Skin Needling?

    Skin Needling stimulates the rejuvenation of the skin through the use of innovative MediPro technology. An automated head of microneedles safely puncture the outer layer of the skin, triggering the body’s natural collagen production, effectively targeting priorities such as dullness, uneven skin tone and acne scars. With frequent exposure to the sun, environmental pollutants or even the body’s natural ageing process, natural elastin, hyaluronic acid, collagen production levels diminish which results in lacklustre, sagging skin.  

    Is Skin Needling Suitable for My Skin?

    Skin Needling is suited to most skin tones and types. Dependant on your priorities this must have treatment targets

    • Large open pores
    • Dryness and dehydration
    • Acne scarring
    • Pigmentation and uneven skin tone
    • Reduces the appearance of fine lines
    • Promotes collagen production
    • Offers overall rejuvenation
    • Lacklustre skin
    • Texture

    What Are The Side Effects of Skin Needling? Does Skin Needling Tear My Skin?

    No, however Dermarollers do. The mechanical rolling movement of microneedles at an angle creates ‘tearing’ wounds. Using the innovative MediPro pen technology which comprises of an automated head of microneedles, tiny micro wounds are made into the skin which then stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen. Compared to Dermarollers, Skin Needling is performed by qualified clinical therapists who provide aftercare support.
