Everything you wanted to know about microneedling
Boost collagen production and get smoother, more refreshed-looking skin with microneedling.
For a rejuvenating skin treatment that smooths scarring and delivers real results, look no further than microneedling.
From how it works, to whether you can DIY this treatment, we're answering everything you ever wanted to know.
How does microneedling work?
This popular treatment is all about stimulating more collagen production. It works by using a micro needle roller, which contains fine needles of varying lengths, to penetrate the skin and trigger the body’s natural wound healing response. This results in the production of new collagen tissue, which is stronger and firmer.
At Skinsmiths, we combine our microneedling treatment with the latest technology Electroporation Needle System, which uses an electrical current to effectively deliver a skin-boosting serum much deeper into the dermis than needling alone.
What results can I expect?
A course of treatments helps strengthen the collagen fibres, giving you stronger, smoother and firmer skin with visibly improved texture. For that reason, it’s also a popular acne treatment to reduce the appearance of scarring.
The serum supports the process by delivering a combination of moisture-boosting hyaluronic acid, multi-vitamins and amino acids (the building blocks for collagen production) deep into the skin.
Can I do it at home?
The best results come from our in-clinic treatments, where our team of highly trained Skin Experts can ensure you’re getting the best experience with a combination of microneedling and electroporation.
However, you can also support the effects of your clinic treatments at home with our very own derma roller tool, which is available in 0.3mm and 0.5mm needle lengths.
