Microneedling is a procedure that uses small needles to get into the skin. This helps with generating new collagen and skin tissue for better and healthier skin.
The process of rolling tiny needles over your face sounds terrifying, but this ultimate advanced technology offers a safe, precise and reliable procedure and provides outstanding results.
It promotes natural collagen and elastin production which helps in ageing by lifting, tightening and rejuvenating the skin. It also helps with the improvement of skin texture and keeps the skin smooth and blemish-free for a long period of time.
Dermapen 4 is the latest micro-needling technology on the market. The technique of the Dermapen 4 that our therapists use is a cross-hatch pattern over your face. This distributes microscopic punctures to the top layers of the skin – a few millimetres deep depending on the treatment, using very small needles. This treatment stimulates the healing and repairing of the skin.
It triggers an inflammatory natural wound healing response in the skin which builds up renewal, repair, and rejuvenation and as well as collagen production resulting in fresh, new collagen and elastin, and a rejuvenated and more youthful skin.

Appointment duration for Micro-needling varies depending on the treated area. On average, the treatment takes about an hour-and-a-half to complete. This timeframe includes a 30-minute period for the application of topical numbing, ensuring a comfortable experience throughout the procedure.
Micro-needling can seem intimidating, but rest assured, our procedure utilizes microscopic needles for minimal discomfort. Some describe the sensation as similar to a vibrating cat's tongue. Deeper imperfections may cause more discomfort, while superficial imperfections are less likely to cause any. We prioritize our patients' comfort throughout the entire process, providing a topical numbing agent 30 minutes before the procedure to alleviate any discomfort.
Results from micro-needling treatment typically become noticeable within a week or two after the initial session. Patients often experience skin tightening and improved skin tone. Although the outcomes may be more subtle for areas with deeper imperfections, additional treatments can help achieve desired results. It's important to note that micro-needling stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin, leading to continued improvements in the skin's condition over the course of 6 months.
Micro-needling offers versatility in treatment areas, making it suitable for various body parts. The face, neck, and chest are commonly targeted, while scars and stretch marks of different types can also be effectively addressed.
