What is Micro-needling?
Micro-needling (also known as skin needling or collagen induction therapy) is a treatment that uses small needles to gently penetrate into the skin. These small contact points encourage the body to create a wound healing response and renew the skin cells. As your skin repairs, the production of collagen and elastin is triggered to give an almost immediate plumping effect.
Micro-needling is suitable for:
- Skin tightening, natural collagen induction, lifting and rejuvenation
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
- Acne scarring
- Surgical scaring
- Large pores
- Stretch marks
- Hair re-growth
What areas of the skin will Micro-needling benefit?

Frequently Asked Questions
Micro-needling can be safely performed on all skin types and colours.
Visibly rejuvenated skin can generally be seen after just 6-8 days following a procedure, with results further improving over time. A course of Dermapen sessions are usually recommended to achieve optimal results; however improvement is usually noticeable after just one treatment.
The skin is first prepared using a deep cleansing solution followed by the application of a hyaluronic acid serum, helping to stimulate collagen, promote hydration and enhancing results. Next the Dermapen device, which has sterile disposable tiny needles and adjustable needle depth settings gently needle into the skin which in turn increases the absorption of treatment products. Following treatment, a soothing skin product is used to heal, hydrate and protect the skin.
Injections are not a part of a Dermapen treatment, so allergic reactions and side-effects are unlikely to occur. The likelihood of an infection taking place is very small, since the procedure is performed under very safe medical conditions.
The procedure is minimally invasive, which means that there is virtually no downtime and the healing process is quick. Any minor side effects usually subside within 24-48 hours these may include erythema, stinging, itching and skin tightness.
Your normal skincare programme can be resumed after day 3, appropriate skincare will be recommended on the day of your treatment to help accelerate the healing process, protect the skin from the environment and enhance your desired results. After several days or weeks, you will start to notice a smoother, brighter and more radiant appearance and younger looking skin. However, it can take several months to see the treatment’s full benefits.
The micro-needling treatment can be repeated safely every 2 – 4 weeks (dependent on needle depth) until the desired results are achieved. A number of required treatments may vary depending on skin condition and quality although generally this is from 3 to 5 treatments for lasting results. This will be fully discussed and agreed with you at your consultation appointment.
The micro-needling treatment can be used on all skin areas of the body and most people will be able to visibly notice the results from the very same day.
