By using a skin needling device we can create tiny micro-injections into your skin. This works to stimulate and promote your skins natural collagen renewal. This stimulation in your skin helps to improve your skin texture, clarity, tone and help smooth any wrinkles, fine lines and scarring.

In conjunction to skin needling we can also use mesotherapy where we use a a special cocktail of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, peptides and even platelet rich plasma and inject this into your skin. We are able to accelerate your results by combining these two modalities and achieve better results in a shorter space of time.

Benefits of skin needling
Skin needling treatments are always best combined with other modalities and treatments such as PRP. A gold standard skin rejuvenation treatment. Another great treatment is combining skin needling with the administration of vitamin A peel. Different modalities are combined for different concerns and conditions of the skin. This can all be discussed with your clinician during your consultation.

Our skin needling treatment is recommended to treat:

  • Uneven skin tone
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Sun damaged, sagging or aged skin
  • Smokers lines
  • Skin tightening
  • Large pores
  • Stretch marks
  • Scars (surgical, Acne and some types of burn scars)
How does skin needling work?
Here at Medwell Medical & Wellness Clinic we use a needling pen device. This treatment targets textural changes associated with skin ageing and scarring. Needling was originally developed by plastic surgeons and dermatologists as a non-surgical method for tissue rejuvenation and regeneration. The needling pen promotes natural collagen induction by harnessing the body’s ability to re-grow and repair the skin as a response to controlled micro-injuries.  Stimulating the production of collagen and elastin and normalising various skin functions including the following:
  • Restores skin hydration
  • Deeply moisturises the skin
  • Stimulates the creation of collagen
  • Stimulates elasticity and improves wrinkles
  • Improves skin tone and restructures mature skin
  • Repairs post-traumatic skin imperfections like scarring and post-acne skin
How many sessions are needed?

Most clients require 2-4 sessions per area depending on the severity of their skin, therefore we have package plans that reduce the cost if more sessions are needed.

 

Will I experience downtime?

You will have facial redness that will last about 12 to 48 hours post treatment. The redness can be covered up by applying an approved mineral makeup only. On rare occasions, you may also experience flaky skin post treatment.

 

If you combine your skin needling treatment with a peel then this is a more intensive treatment and you will experience a more moderate to heavy peel generally starting after 2 or 3 days and may take up to a week to recover.

 

In some cases you will experience a mild skin breakout. Please ensure you keep in touch with you practitioner and ensure to follow your aftercare.

How long until I see results?

You may begin to see positive results around 4-6 weeks after your first needling treatment, however you will see more significant results after 4 to 6 sessions.

 

Over the next 6 to 12 months, you will continue seeing signs of improvement; the recommended post treatment care should be followed for best results. If you combine your needling treatment with a vitamin A peel you may begin to see results after 1-2 weeks of your treatment.
