Skin Needling (Microneedling)
Skin needling, also known as microneedling, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses a device with fine needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting skin rejuvenation.
Skin Needling, also known as microneedling and collagen induction therapy, is one of the most well-known skin rejuvenation treatments.
Harnessing the body’s natural healing and regenerative process, Skin Needling is sought-after around the world for its ability to deliver incredible skin rejuvenation results without the need for surgery, discomfort, or prolonged downtime.
If you’re ready to effectively improve the appearance of scars, wrinkles, fine lines, uneven skin tone and texture, then Skin Needling at The Face & Body Clinic could be the treatment you’ve been searching for.
How Skin Needling (Microneedling) works:
Skin Needling works by utilising a specially designed microneedling device that contains ultra-fine needles. These needles create micro-wounds in the skin that kickstart the body’s natural wound-healing response. The wound-healing response is responsible for accelerating the production of collagen and elastin to repair and regenerate the skin.
Whether you’re seeking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars, or simply enhance your skin’s overall radiance, our skilled nurses at The Face & Body Clinic will tailor each treatment to your unique needs. With minimal downtime and exceptional results, our skin needling procedure is your passport to a renewed and luminous complexion.

Benefits of using Skin Needling (Microneedling):
Collagen Stimulation: Microneedling creates controlled micro-injuries in the skin, triggering the body’s natural response to produce collagen and elastin. This increased collagen production leads to improved skin elasticity and firmness.
Wrinkle Reduction: The boost in collagen helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, promoting a smoother and more youthful complexion.
Scar Improvement: Microneedling is effective in minimising the appearance of scars, including acne scars and surgical scars, by promoting collagen remodelling and encouraging the formation of new, healthy tissue.
Even Skin Tone: The procedure helps address hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone by promoting cellular turnover and encouraging the growth of fresh, evenly pigmented skin cells.
Reduced Pore Size: Microneedling can contribute to the refinement of enlarged pores, giving the skin a smoother and more refined texture.
Enhanced Product Absorption: The micro-channels created by the needles during microneedling enhance the absorption of topical skincare products, allowing for better penetration of active ingredients into the skin.
Minimal Downtime: Compared to more invasive procedures, microneedling typically has minimal downtime. Patients may experience redness and mild swelling, but these effects are usually temporary and resolve within a few days.
Versatility: Microneedling is versatile and can be used on various areas of the body, including the face, neck, décolletage, and hands, making it a comprehensive solution for overall skin rejuvenation.
Safe for All Skin Types: Microneedling is generally safe for individuals with different skin types and tones, making it a widely applicable treatment option.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is skin needling or microneedling?
A: Microneedling, also known as skin needling or collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses a device with fine needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting skin rejuvenation.
Q: How does microneedling work?
A: the procedure involves the use of a microneedling device that creates tiny, controlled punctures in the skin’s surface. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing response, leading to increased collagen and elastin production, which contributes to improved skin texture and appearance.
Q: What skin concerns can microneedling address?
A: Microneedling is effective in addressing various skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, and overall skin texture.
Q: What does a skin needling treatment feel like?
A: We prioritise client comfort during all of our treatments. During your Skin Needling treatment, you may experience a scratching sensation on the skin. Whilst pain thresholds differ from client to client, Skin Needling is considered a very tolerable treatment.
Q: Is there any downtime associated with skin needling treatments?
A: Immediately following your Skin Needling treatment, you will experience some redness and a “sunburn-like” sensation on the skin, but this generally subsides within 24 hours post-treatment. Most clients return to their day-to-day activities immediately post-treatment.
Q: How many treatments will I require to see results?
A: You will notice visible improvements to your skin within the following days post-treatment. Like all collagen-inducing therapies, your results will improve during the following months post-treatment as the collagen continues to form.
Most clients require two to six Skin Needling treatments to achieve optimal results. Your individual requirements, matched to your unique skin concerns and goals, will be discussed during your consultation. We recommend annual maintenance treatments to uphold your rejuvenated complexion.
