Skin Needling

Also know as Collagen Induction Therapy or Microneedling.

Skin Needling, also know as Microneedling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is an amazing treatment simple in concept but yielding incredible results.

We use the derma CIT pen that utilises twelve very fine, medical grade, 100% sterile, stainless steel needles in a disposable cartridge. These needles vertically penetrate the skin at a high speed.

This controlled stimulation of your skin’s natural wound healing response inspires skin rejuvenation and repair – which is extremely important when treating pigmentation, ageing, scarring, stretch marks, enlarged pores and promoting overall skin health.

Please contact us or visit the clinic and we can advise on the best path forward.

Please note: due to the prescriptive and highly customisable nature of our skin treatments, a Skin Consultation must be completed before booking/receiving a treatment facial or Skin Needling (unless you're an existing client already on a skincare regimen). This is to ensure that we understand your goals, expectations and outcomes. It also ensures there are no contraindications that would otherwise preclude you from receiving the treatment.

Before You Book

Skin Consultation Required

Skin Needling can be performed on almost anyone however, there may be times when we need to overcome certain contraindications prior to performing the treatment; or prepare the skin more adequately to ensure the healing process and results are optimal and efficient.

Results don’t come from injury, they come from healing.

If your skin is already in a bad state and struggling to heal itself, then Skin Needling isn’t going to correct that issue. It simply adds insult to injury!

We work with you from the ground up – rebuilding and strengthening your skin.

For this reason, a Skin Consultation is required prior to us performing this treatment on you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Skin Needling suitable for me?

Although Skin Needling is suitable for most clients, there are many contraindications we need to consider and may need to overcome prior to the treatment being performed.

You must book in for a skin consultation prior to booking in for Skin Needling.

Is deeper, better?

Absolutely not! The depth of injury will depend on what you’re trying to achieve.

We’ve been highly trained and educated to evaluate your skin and work within the parameters required to achieve your desired results.

Does it hurt?

Whilst everyone’s tolerance for pain is different, the simple answer is quite simply no, it doesn’t hurt.

This is not what you might imagine when you read about needles piercing the skin surface at a high speed. But with our high level of training and the precision of the derma CIT pen, it results in your treatments being comfortable and highly effective while pain is kept to a minimum.

Most clients experience around a 5 out of 10. Certain areas you’ll likely feel less, others may be slightly more.

The pain felt can also greatly depend on how well you’ve prepared your skin – including homecare and in-clinic treatments.

How many treatments will I need?

Generally, anywhere from 3-6 treatments will get you great results – but that’s a rough guide only.

It will vary from one client to another depending on the skin condition and concern being treated.

Factors such as preparation time and your consistency with post care and follow up treatments will all contribute to the end result.

We will be here to guide you through the entire process.

Can I book Skin Needling without preparation?

With someone else, potentially. With us, no!

Without adequate consultation and preparation, there is a greater risk of delayed healing, lack of results and quite simply a waste of your time and money.

We have a duty of care to fulfil. Any clinic that is prepared to perform such a treatment so carelessly without correct preparation shouldn’t be performing it at all.

Is a topical anaesthetic applied?

No, topical anaesthetic is not used and we strongly advise against it.

Not only can anaesthetic counter the effectiveness of the treatment, but it can have some serious side effects. Anaesthetic toxicity is one issue, but the potential for allergic reactions is perhaps a greater concern.

While the chance of allergic reactions are low, the risks outweigh the rewards.

With good preparation, pain (which there is minimal of anyway) is reduced; again eliminating the need for topical anaesthetic or other numbing creams.

When will I see results?

Some clients can start to see and feel results after a few weeks. The treatment is cumulative – so each one builds on the success of the previous one.

Pre and post care is vital to the end result.

One of the most exciting things about skin needling is that your results will continue to improve over the next 12 months as the new collagen and elastin settles, strengthens and rejuvenates your skin from within.

What areas can be treated?

We can treat most areas including the face, neck, décolletage, hands, stomach, legs and arms.

How does dermaCIT compare to other devices like Dermapen?

The device is only a small part of the process. There are a lot of top quality devices our there that all operate in virtually identical ways – although the manufacturers of some of these devices would have your believe otherwise. From experience it’s simply not true.

More important then some brand name is the person operating the device, their knowledge of the skin, their attention to detail, and the importance they place on your overall health and safety.

We strongly encourage you to forget what brand of device is being used and seek out someone who is actually capable of using it correctly and safely.

As a client, the brand of the device should mean absolutely zip!
