Prick your way to better skin: Everything you need to know about Microneedling
Using needles on your skin can sound a bit scary, but Microneedling is a safe and one of our most popular High Intensity Treatments for fine lines and facial scarring. Find out everything you need to know about Microneedling below:
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is an advanced skin treatment using a roller consisting of extremely fine needles. These needles create pin pricks within the dermis layer of the skin to create controlled injury. When our skin is damaged, it stimulates the production of collagen tissue which is vital for healthy, plump skin. Over a course of treatments, this controlled damage causes skin to become stronger and firmer than before for improved skin texture and appearance.
What does Microneedling treat?
Microneedling is ideal for those concerned about fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin texture. Facial scarring from severe acne is another concern which can be improved with this treatment.
After a course of Microneedling Treatments you can expect:
- Improved skin texture
- Restored Elasticity
- Softer lines
- Increased skin tightness
- Reduced appearance of scarring
How many treatments do I need?
The number of treatments you require will depend on your skin goals. For best results, we recommend a course of treatments combined with skin conditioning treatments to prepare the skin. During a free consultation a Skinsmiths Treatment Advisor will design your membership with you based on what you want to achieve.
Does it hurt?
We apply a topical anaesthetic to make treatments as comfortable as possible.
Is there downtime with this treatment?
Minimal down time is required after Microneedling. You may experience redness and swelling post treatment, but these symptoms often reduce in a few hours.
