Microneedling

instantly hydrate your skin

Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), microneedling treatments use a vibrational stamping device with very fine needles to address some of the most common signs of ageing and skin damage.

Lines and wrinkles tend to form when the skin is dehydrated and no longer produces enough collagen, but microneedling is designed to create micro injuries to the skin which stimulates a wound healing response. CIT can be combined with PRP or Hyaluronic Acid serum applied directly into the upper layer of the skin. Hyaluronic Acid is capable of holding up to 1000x its weight in water which has a dramatic effect on the skin.

Along with repairing damaged skin, multiple microneedling treatments will help strengthen the epidermis over time, leaving you with improved skin tone and texture too.

Since microneedling treatments can be customised to treat all skin types and tones, we will work with you to develop a treatment plan that will meet your specific needs.

What to Expect

Following a discussion about what you hope to achieve with microneedling treatments, your skin will be analysed, cleaned and prepped.

As the microneedling device passes over your skin, it will create micro wounds that will trigger your skin’s natural healing processes. The size and shape of the microneedling device makes it easy to move across all areas of the face, including hard to reach areas such as the nose, eyes and lips.

The average microneedling treatment takes 30 – 45 minutes and is only mildly uncomfortable. A topical numbing agent can be applied prior to your treatment to alleviate any discomfort though. Patients can expect some redness and sensitivity after their treatment but this usually subsides within 24 hours. Your skin may also shed several days after your treatment but this is a part of the healing process and won’t last longer than a day or two.

For optimum results, at least 3 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart will be required but we will advise you accordingly based on your goals and requirements.
You will also be provided with specific aftercare instructions that will accelerate your healing and enhance your results.

What Can Microneedling Treat?

Here are the key skin concerns that can be addressed with microneedling:

  • Scarring: Minimise the appearance of acne and injury scars
  • Age Spots: Repair skin that is showing signs of age or sun damage
  • Lines and Wrinkles: Improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face, neck and décolletage
  • Enlarged Pores: Enlarged pores are highly noticeable and make your skin more susceptible to infection but microneedling can reduce the size of your pores
  • Skin Laxity: By boosting collagen levels, your skin will appear more supple and youthful
  • Uneven Skin Tone: Pigmentation is another common sign of ageing that can be addressed with microneedling

Ideal Candidates for Microneedling

Microneedling is suitable for all skin types, including darker and very fair skin. Since microneedling doesn’t require any heat, there is very little chance of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, making this an ideal treatment for almost anyone.

If acne, redness, scarring, fine lines, enlarged pores or ageing skin is your biggest concern, microneedling may be an ideal treatment for you. A thorough skin analysis with Dr Lowe or one of our experienced clinicians will also determine the best course of action.

Microneedling Results

It’s important to remember that your microneedling results will be gradual because the skin’s healing response will need time to take effect. Once your skin has healed, it will appear smoother and brighter. New collagen will start forming from about week six and you will notice a gradual improvement in the condition of your skin over the next 6 – 12 months. Additional treatments may be required during this period to achieve a more dramatic effect.
