About Skin Needling

Skin needling is a minimally invasive procedure that encourages collagen and elastin production within the skin cells.

The micro needle on our specifically designed device stimulates your body’s own collagen production, therefore resulting in firmer more youthful skin. We use hyaluronic acid as a lubricant, but this also assists in the anti-aging process, plus improves texture and appearance of the skin. It increases the hydration of the epidermis. Add Liquid Gold for added results.

Procedure takes 45 mins plus numbing time of 10 mins.

Down time – expect redness (like sunburn) and swelling for 24-48 hours.

Recommended every 4-6 weeks with at least 3-4 sessions.

This wound healing response is what stimulates new collagen and elastin formation which then assists with plumping out fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scarring. It also reduces the appearance of pigmentation, enlarged pores, and stretch marks.

FAQs

01.Will Skin Needling help with acne scarring and stretch marks?

Yes. Skin Needling promotes the production of collagen and it’s this collagen production that builds the tissue within the stretch marks back up.  The result is that the stretch mark and acne scarring indentation is reduced and so does the colour of these scars, in some cases making them disappear completely.

02.What will my skin look like when I walk out of the clinic - will I need time off work?

Each person’s skin is different – so your response will vary, but the majority of our skin treatments require no downtime. Your aesthetic health care professional will take you through a post-treatment care regime that will fast-track your results.

03.How do I know what skin treatment is right for me?

Everyone’s skin is different, and everyone will have different skin goals. At My Botique, we truly love educating people about their skin. That’s why we encourage you to book a consultation to give you access to highly trained Aesthetic Health Care Professionals that will arm you with all the information you need about the treatments that are best suited to you.
