Skin Needling

A non-surgical tissue rejuvenation and regeneration method, skin needling delivers micro-injuries to the skin, triggering blood flow and collagen production, encouraging restoration and repair of the complexion. At Flawless Rejuvenation, we take an advanced, combined approach, infusing active ingredients into the skin via the opened-up microchannels, nourishing the skin as well as prompting a healing response. This non-invasive treatment lessens the signs of ageing and creates a smoother, more consistent skin texture.

Plastic surgeons and dermatologists initially developed skin needling, also known as CIT (Collagen Induction Therapy), as a non-surgical tissue rejuvenation and regeneration method.

Skin needling is a minimally invasive technique that creates thousands of epidermal microchannels that allow substances to pass through the superficial layers of the skin while simultaneously stimulating collagen and increasing greater penetration of active substances. This treatment also reduces the appearance of hypertrophic scars, stretch marks, and improves skin firmness.

At Flawless Rejuvenation, we offer skin needling for the Face, Neck and Décolletage. We can also combine this treatment with professional peels and LED Light Therapy for further results.

How it works

Needling has been used for many years as an effective cosmetic skin treatment, and the technology is continually being advanced. It works by passing a vibrational stamping device embedded with tiny sterile needles over the skin, creating micro-injuries or small channels on the surface. The needles penetrate the epidermis (outer layer of the skin) and the dermis (inner layer of the skin). They are not large enough to damage the skin tissue, but instead, the tiny punctures trigger blood flow and produce a natural wound healing response to encourage restoration and repair. Treatment can be used on all skin types and tones, and it is used primarily on the face to treat wrinkles, scarring, and large pores.

Along with instigating the body’s natural healing response, the treatment triggers the production of collagen and elastin, which act to improve the skin’s strength and elasticity. It also facilitates better penetration and absorption of skincare ingredients. The effect reduces signs of aging and a smoother and more consistent skin texture.

During the treatment, active ingredients are placed onto the skin and absorbed deeply though the microchannels created with the device. The ingredients can be customised to suit your personal skin concerns.

The benefits

There are numerous benefits to skin needling, which can vary depending on your skin condition and requirements. The triggering of collagen production and healing responses creates a smoother skin texture and tone and can treat a wide variety of skin conditions and imperfections. Our treatment includes a blend of active ingredients that can be customised to cater to what your skin needs. The treatment can target large or multiple areas at once to make your skin look youthful and rejuvenated. This treatment can treat a variety of skin concerns, such as:

Fine Lines & Wrinkles

Sun Spots

Enlarged Pores

Acne Scars

Other benefits include:

  • Improved communication between skin cells
  • Enhanced collagen and elastin production
  • Making imperfections less visible
  • Remedying melasma and pigmentation
  • Reducing surgical scarring
  • Reducing the visibility of stretch marks

Skin needling procedures target specific areas to produce smoother, firmer, and healthier-looking skin.

Ideal candidates for skin needling

Skin needling is suitable for all skin types and tones. Anyone seeking a simple, effective, and non-invasive skin treatment could be an ideal candidate. However, as with any procedure, there are some exceptions. Needling may not be suitable for those with active acne or skin infections. In any case, a consultation will be required to determine your situation and develop the best treatment plan by your skin condition and ideal outcomes.

What to expect

Once the ideal treatment method has been discussed and decided, the next step will be to begin the treatment. The average session will usually last between 30-75 minutes, but this can depend on the size of the treated area. Your skin will be cleaned and prepped, and the needling device will be rolled over your skin to trigger the skin’s healing responses. Once the device has created microchannels in the skin, a customised blend of active ingredients in a serum is placed over your skin. The microchannels allow for the ingredients to be absorbed deeply for maximum effectiveness. The pain should be minimal to none. However, a topical anaesthetic can be applied before the treatment to minimise any discomfort with the patient’s consent.

Results will vary depending on the specifics of your procedure. Collagen takes time to rebuild. This means the results will be gradual, and the skin’s healing response will require some time to take effect. It may take multiple months of incremental improvement to see the full results. However, most patients notice an improvement in their skin texture and tone within 6-8 weeks of treatment. Following this, collagen production will slow, and the skin will show signs of aging once again. For this reason, follow-up treatments are usually recommended to maintain optimal results. The follow-ups are typically spaced four to six weeks apart, considering your particular skin condition and requirements.

Things to consider

No downtime is required after skin needling treatment, which means you are free to resume your daily activities. Patients will have a very flushed look from the procedure, which can take the appearance of a slight sunburn and lasts around 24-72 hours. The skin will immediately feel hot post-treatment, but this feeling usually subsides after a few hours. The skin around the treated area may also feel sensitive and tight, but these mild symptoms will usually fade within a day. In the days after treatment, patients may experience some skin shedding resulting from the healing process. It’s important to take appropriate care of the skin to reduce any adverse reactions. It is recommended that you:

  • Reduce exposure to direct sunlight while your skin is healing
  • Do not wear makeup for at least 12 hours following the treatment
  • Refrain from excessive exercise for at least 24 hours or until the redness has subsided
