What is skin needling?


Skin needling, also known as collagen induction therapy or dermal rolling, is a minimally invasive treatment that is designed to repair broken down skin and improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

During a skin needling session, micro needles are applied to the skin’s surface with a medical grade roller or pen. This essentially tricks your skin into thinking it is wounded, in order to accelerate the body’s natural healing process and increase production of collagen.

The benefits of skin needling include:

  • Tightened, plumped and firmer skin
  • Reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduced appearance of acne scarring and other marks like chicken pox
  • Reduced hyperpigmentation
  • Clearer and brighter skin tone
  • Reduced pore size
  • Improved appearance of stretch marks and scarring

How it works

Skin needling works to create controlled micro-injuries, triggering the skin’s natural healing response. The needles create tiny punctures in the skin’s surface that accelerate the body’s natural healing process and work to repair the skin through increased production of collagen and elastin.

Common questions we get asked about skin needling

Does it hurt?

Depending on the treatment area, skin condition and the depth of penetration, some clients may experience discomfort.

The most painful area is the forehead because it sits over the bone, but for most clients from the eyes down it is okay. We can adjust the level of penetration according to your pain threshold, which will be discussed with you during your skin consultation.

Can you use an anesthetic?

This is not recommended because it restricts the blood flow. The redness helps so we can see how the skin is reacting to the treatment.

How long does it take?

The process takes around 45 minutes but the full appointment is 1 hour.

How many treatments are required?

We recommend one treatment every eight weeks, and most clients will receive optimal results after at least three treatments. We will discuss the number of treatments required to reach your skin health goals during your consultation.

How long until I see results?

Visible improvements can be seen in as little as 14 days post treatment, and your skin will continue to improve over the next few months. The most dramatic results will occur 6-12 weeks after treatment.

What happens after my treatment?

After a skin needling session many clients experience sore skin which can be prone to infection. We will provide you with a post-treatment kit to take home and use for the next three days. The kit includes a calm water gel and sunscreen for during the day, and a gentle calming booster for night (valued at $65). Your post treatment skincare instructions will be covered during your consultation.

Do you offer a payment plan?

Yes, AfterPay is available.
