Medical Microneedling takes advantage of the body’s natural ability to heal wounds to fight skin ageing from the inside out.
Social media has dubbed it the Vampire Facial, Medical microneedling is a technique that uses tiny sterile micro-needles to create very small, controlled “injuries” to skin. These microscopic injuries then heal, resulting in collagen and elastin rejuvenation. It also allows for active ingredients to be absorbed into the deeper skin layers.
Microneedling treatment is a gradual process; we don’t plan for one session, we always schedule 2 – 6 sessions depending on each patient’s needs. Depending on the chosen depth, we may start with a numbing cream to minimise discomfort. It is safe for all skin types including dark skin that is at increased risk for side effects with lasers.
