skin needling

Skin Needling stimulates the production of your collagen to create smoother, healthier skin, reducing acne scarring, stretch marks, fine lines, pigmentation, enlarged pores, blackheads and scarring. If your concerns are aged facial skin, stretch marks, acne and acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, or enlarged pores, then this facial is a perfect choice.

Needling can be safely repeated every 4 weeks. For collagen induction we recommend to start with 3 treatments, but with a minimum separation time of 4 to 6 weeks between treatments.

We use a sterile single use needle cartridge with multiple fine micro needles to stimulate the skin, this sends collagen and elastin production into overdrive to compensate as it heals which leaves your complexion tighter and smoother.  We use serums during the skin needling facial which can be up to 90% more effective when used with micro needling.
