As we age the natural architecture of our skin deteriorates which leads to fine lines, wrinkles, large pores and uneven skin texture. Microneedling is a form of Collagen Induction Therapy, which can address these signs of ageing and deliver plump, glowing skin.

Microneedling

Microneedling can improve the appearance of melasma and scarring caused by acne and surgery. By creating thousands of micro-injuries in the skin, the body’s natural wound healing process is triggered. This assists in the promotion of collagen and elastin, the 2 proteins responsible for the structure of the skin.

SkinPen® Precision is one of the very few TGA approved medical micro-needling devices in Australia and this is the device we use.

SkinPen® is clinically proven to safely and effectively fight the appearance of neck wrinkles and facial acne scars for ages 22 and up. With as few as three non-invasive treatments spaced 30 days apart, you can improve your appearance for six months after your last treatment.

How Does It Work?

SkinPen creates hundreds to thousands of “micro” skin punctures per second to stimulate the skin’s natural wound healing process – inflammation, proliferation, and remodeling – to prompt tissue remodeling without causing scar tissue formation. Most patients can return to normal activities within 24 hours.

Benefits of Skinpen Microneedling:

  • Short procedure time, only 30 minutes to one hour.
  • A mild sensation, you feel only the slight vibration of SkinPen during the procedure.
  • Minimal post-procedure downtime. The skin will appear slightly pink to red immediately post-procedure.
  • Stimulates Collagen production to help combat ageing
  • Reduces Scarring from Acne or Surgery
  • Increases skin thickness, stimulates cells, and reduces inflammation.

A pre-treatment consultation will determine your medical history, any medications you may be taking and determine whether or not SkinPen® Precision is suitable for you. Typically 3-6 sessions are recommended to achieve optimal results. Sessions are scheduled 4-6 weeks apart and you will provided with a recommend skincare regime to enhance your results.
