What is Skin Needling

 

The needles cause thousands of microscopic injuries to the skin. This induces the skin to begin a process of wound healing that is followed by the production of new collagen. The production of new collagen continues for up to 12 months after the procedure. Depressed acne scars, wrinkles, skin texture and tightness are all improved as a result.

Am I a suitable candidate for skin needling

Skin needling is particularly suited to those with acne scarring, fine lines, and for people looking to improve skin texture and tightness. It can be used on all skin types from light to dark skins. It is not suitable for people who have open cuts, wounds, sun-burnt skin, and those who are pregnant or lactating

What are the side effects of treatments

Generally, you will experience some redness of the skin for up to 3 days after the procedure and time off work is not usually needed during this time. If you are prone to cold sores, the healing area may become infected if you have a cold sore breakout during this period. Bacterial infection is also possible but very unlikely. As the skin is not torn, scarring is extremely rare. Some people may develop milia (small white dots) on the skin as it heals. These can be removed easily. Also acne breakouts may occur after treatment.
