Microneedling is also called Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy.
Microneedling is a treatment that uses small needles to cause tiny punctures in the skin. These small contact points encourage the body to activate a wound healing response to tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin. As your skin repairs, the production of collagen and elastin are triggered to give an almost immediate plumping and firming effect. It can also tackle other skin damage problems such as scarring, dark marks, sun damage and ageing.
You will look flushed and pink after the procedure (similar to mild sunburn) which can last for up to 48 hours. Dry skin and light scabs may form the next day, and may take up to 2 weeks to fall off. You must not pick at these scabs. You must avoid any stimulating products such as AHAs, retinol (vitamin A) or any acidic or “active products” for a minimum of 2 days after the treatment.

Skin Needling is a safe method of collagen induction, and the downtime can span 1-4 days, which may vary from person to person. The inflammatory response of your skin is short, and the red flushing will fade within hours after the treatment. The skin needling pen does not use heat energy, like lasers, so there is no risk of hyperpigmentation of the skin in dark or Asian patients. It is advised that you avoid products with active ingredients for 48 hours and sun protection is a must.
Micro-needling is safe for almost everyone. The only contraindications are for those who currently have acne, infection, or wound healing issues
Microneedling works by creating small punctures in the skin. It is not overly painful. When microneedling is performed by a professional at Skin Body Rescue Clinic, we apply a topical anaesthetic to numb the skin, which in turn means you will find the treatment to be comfortable. The wounds made by the sharp micro needling needles are not deep, making them quick to heal.
The best results are achieved by completing a series of treatments with Microneedling. Although results vary from person to person, most will experience a decided improvement in tone and texture of the skin after their first treatment. Fine lines and wrinkles soften dramatically, and scarring becomes significantly less noticeable. Microneedling has gained a strong reputation for rejuvenating sluggish, dull skin, leaving skin noticeably clearer, smoother and more radiant.
