What is it?
Needling is a form of collagen induction therapy which, very simply, works on the basis of creating controlled trauma, which causes a wound healing response in your skin. As part of the wound healing cascade, new collagen is produced! Collagen is one of the structural fibres that keeps your skin firm and plump.
What is involved in the procedure?
A hydrating gel is applied, and the needling device glides over the skin, puncturing or stamping thousands of tiny microchannels. We are able to control the depth, and we utilise different depths on different areas of the face, depending on your concerns.
We incorporate LED phototherapy and a cooling gel peptide mask for the ultimate luxe medispa experience.
We recommend a course of six for best results.
Does it hurt?
With numbing cream, the treatment is quite pleasant - just a bit scratchy. Katherine had no numbing cream on in this vid, and the discomfort was around a 4/10. It was worse in the hours afterwards with some heat and swelling. However it was perfectly manageable and didn't interfere with a full workday.
Full face skin needling is $280, which includes a full set of pre-treatment photographs, numbing, a full needling treatment, LED phototherapy, cold gel peptide mask, and aftercare. Without the mask it is $250 but the gel mask is honestly super soothing.
Who can have the procedure?
Almost everyone! It's even pregnancy and breastfeeding safe BUT our major concern is post inflammatory pigmentation, so if you are susceptible to hormonal pigment or you have skin which is prone to pigmentation, we will need to do a little tweaking. If you have a history of keloid scarring, needling is not for you. Most skins need to be prepped on a couple of treatment products prior to needling. The cost for these is (ballpark) $200
