What is skin needling?

Get ready to induce your collagen with skin needling at Esteem Medi Spa!

Skin needling, also known as collagen induction therapy uses tiny needles to pierce the epidermis and dermis levels of your skin. These controlled micro injuries trigger the body to stimulate the wound healing response. Fibroblasts and growth factors are then stimulated to fill these micro-wounds with new collagen and elastin. In addition, new capillaries are formed leading to greater oxygen and nutrient absorption for a brighter complexion.

Skin needling is great for reducing acne scarring, stretch marks, fine lines, pigmentation, enlarged pores, blackheads and scarring!

Depending on the area and condition to be treated it may take me 5-60 minutes to complete the procedure. A minimum of 4-6 weeks is recommended between each treatment as it takes that long for new natural collagen to form.

It is safe for most skin types, requires no time off work, and aims to improve skin texture and radiance.

Don’t worry about the pain either! I can apply a topical anaesthetic that will numb the skin to make the treatment more comfortable.

There is generally no downtime after the treatment, but you may experience facial redness for 12-48hrs after the treatment. Most people are able to return to their normal activities immediately following the treatment.
