What Is Skin Needling?

Skin needling, also known as microneedling or collagen induction therapy, is a cosmetic procedure that involves using a device with tiny needles (Derma Pen 4) to create controlled micro-injuries on the surface of the skin. The purpose of these micro-injuries is to stimulate the body’s natural healing response, triggering the production of collagen and elastin.

During the procedure, the device is gently rolled or stamped over the skin, creating multiple small punctures. These micro-traumas prompt the skin to initiate a healing process, where new collagen and elastin fibres are generated. As a result, the skin becomes firmer, smoother, and more youthful in appearance. This safe and effective treatment offers remarkable benefits, including the reduction of acne scars, surgery scars, wrinkles, and stretch marks. It can be applied to various areas such as the face, neck, abdomen, and chest.

Frequently Asked Questions About Skin Needling

How Does Skin Needling Work?

At Victorian Cosmetic Dermal Clinics, our skin needling treatment utilises the advanced Derma Pen 4 medical device, capable of penetrating the dermal layer by up to 2.0 mm. The Dermapen is considered to be the gold standard in skin needling technology due to its medical-grade micro-needles that gently flow over your skin to encourage collagen growth. This cutting-edge technology allows for precise and controlled treatment to address various skin concerns.

Moreover, our skin needling treatment can be combined with a cosmeceutical product infusion, facilitating faster and enhanced absorption of antioxidant ingredients. This synergy results in a more pronounced healing response, leaving your skin with a natural, youthful radiance.

Which Parts Of My Body Can Be Treated With Skin Needling?

Skin needling can be performed on various parts of the body, not just limited to the face. The treatment is versatile and can be effectively used on several areas, including the face, neck, décolletage, hands, abdomen, legs and thighs. Unlike other treatment options, skin needling is also safe to perform on areas close to the eyes, such as when treating crows feet and frown lines.

What Are The Benefits Of Skin Needling?

Our skin needling treatment offers a range of benefits that contribute to overall skin rejuvenation and improvement. Some the key benefits include:

Collagen stimulation: Skin needling triggers the body’s natural collagen production process. The controlled micro-injuries created during the treatment stimulate the skin to generate new collagen and elastin fibres, resulting in firmer, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin.

Reduction of scars and imperfections: Skin needling can effectively reduce the appearance of various types of scars, including acne scars, surgical scars, and stretch marks. The treatment promotes collagen remodelling, helping to smooth out irregularities and improve the texture of the skin.

Wrinkle and fine line reduction: Skin needling can diminish the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, particularly those caused by ageing or sun damage. By stimulating collagen production, the treatment helps plump up the skin, making it appear more youthful and reducing the depth of wrinkles.

Improved skin texture and tone: Skin needling can help improve skin texture by refining the surface of the skin. It can minimise the appearance of enlarged pores and uneven skin tone, resulting in a smoother, more even complexion.

Enhanced product absorption: Following skin needling, the skin becomes more receptive to topical skincare products. The micro-channels created during the treatment allow for better absorption of active ingredients, maximising the effectiveness of serums, moisturisers, and other skincare products.

Minimal downtime: Skin needling is a minimally invasive procedure that typically requires little downtime. While there may be some temporary redness and mild irritation immediately after the treatment, these effects usually subside within a few days, allowing you to resume your normal activities.

Suitable for various skin types and areas: Skin needling can be performed on different skin types and areas of the body, including the face, neck, décolletage, and hands. It is a versatile treatment that can be tailored to individual needs.

How Many Skin Needling Treatments Do I Need?

When it comes to how many sessions a patient will need, there are no hard and fast rules. Generally, depending on your skin condition, we recommend anywhere between 3-10 treatments. When treating more severe skin conditions such as stretch marks and major scarring you may require between 6 to 10 treatments every 6-8 weeks. A refresher course may be performed every 6-12 months. When you book your consultation, our experienced skin therapists will be able to tailor a custom plan to address your individual skin concerns and goals.

Is Skin Needling Painful?

Skin needling can cause some discomfort during the procedure, but it is generally well-tolerated by most individuals. The level of discomfort experienced can vary depending on individual pain tolerance, the depth of the needles used, and the sensitivity of the treatment area. However, measures are usually taken to minimise any discomfort and ensure a more comfortable experience. One hour prior to treatment, a topical anaesthetic cream is applied to the area. This will minimise any discomfort during the treatment. Most clients describe the feeling as a bit of pressure and a mild tingling feeling.

What Should I Do Before Skin Needling Treatment?

Before undergoing a skin needling treatment, it is important to follow certain guidelines to ensure optimal results and minimise potential risks. These include:

Sun Protection: For at least one month before your treatment, protect your skin from excessive sun exposure and religiously apply SPF30+ or greater. Avoid direct sunlight, tanning beds, and sunburns, as they can increase skin sensitivity and potentially interfere with the healing process.

Avoid Certain Skincare Products: Prior to the treatment, we advise that you discontinue the use of certain topical products, such as cosmeceutical skincare, retinoids or exfoliating agents, to minimise skin sensitivity and potential complications. 

Arrive Without Active Skin Conditions: If you have active skin conditions, such as sunburn, cold sores, or open wounds, it is generally advised to postpone the treatment until the skin has fully healed to avoid complications.

What Should I Do After Skin Needling Treatment? (Aftercare)

After your skin needling treatment, it is important to follow proper aftercare instructions to support the healing process and optimise results. Here are some general guidelines for skin needling aftercare:

Protect your skin: Avoid direct sunlight and protect your skin from UV exposure for at least a week following the treatment. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF regularly, even if you’re staying indoors.

Avoid excessive heat exposure: In addition to sun exposure, it is important to refrain from activities that generate excessive heat in the treated area, such as hot showers, saunas, steam rooms, or vigorous exercise, for a couple of days. Heat can increase skin sensitivity and prolong the recovery process.

Moisturise: Apply a gentle, hydrating moisturiser or soothing agent to the treated area regularly to maintain skin hydration and support the healing process. Opt for products that are non-comedogenic and suitable for sensitive skin.

Minimise make-up use: It is generally recommended to avoid applying makeup immediately after the treatment to allow the skin to breathe and heal. If necessary, wait for at least 24 hours before applying makeup, and ensure that the products you use are non-irritating and suitable for post-treatment use. At Victorian Dermal Clinics, we are proud to stock Saint Minerals, a consciously created, cruelty-free, mineral make-up range, derived from highest quality, vegan friendly, no-nanotechnology minerals.

Don’t pick or scratch: Resist the temptation to pick, scratch, or touch the treated area. Let the skin naturally heal and avoid any actions that may cause trauma or introduce bacteria to the area.

Are There Potential Side Effects?

While skin needling is generally considered safe and well-tolerated, there are potential side effects that you should be aware of. Following a skin needling treatment, it is common to encounter mild to moderate redness, slight swelling, minor flaking, and the possibility of mild grazing and bruising. This is a normal response and should subside within a few hours to a few days. The more significant side effects, if present, typically diminish gradually over a period of 1 to 7 days, with noticeable improvements each day.
