MicroNeedling Collagen Induction Therapy
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure performed on various parts of the body, more commonly the face, that is used to treat skin concerns such as fine lines, acne scarring, pigmentation and ageing through stimulating blood flow and collagen production.
This treatment is fantastic for reducing pore size, tightening and firming the skin, helping to reduce the appearance of scarring and stretch marks and can be used in certain anti-aging procedures, such as eyelid surgery and sun spots.
Microneedling works by causing a controlled wound through the penetration of short needles into the skin in order to promote collagen and elastin. Pinpricks from the procedure will cause slight injury to the skin and which responds by making new collagen-rich tissue resulting in a more even skin tone and texture as well as plumper, tighter and healthier looking skin all over.

How many treatments do I need?
Ideal results are achieved after multiple sessions
4 – 6 sessions with a 4 – 6 week rest period in between, will ensure you get great, long lasting results.
When will I see results and how long will they last?
Ideal results are achieved after multiple sessions, however you will begin to see results approximately 48 to 72 hours after the treatment. This is when you’ll notice an increase in collagen production as the skin becomes firmer and plump.
It can take up to at least four weeks to see noticeable results though. New collagen will take up to 6 months to completely form and will last for several years, which is why microneedling treatments are considered a very long lasting treatment.
