Skin needling, also known as dermal needling or micro-needling, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves the use of a specialised device with fine needles to create controlled micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process, leading to increased collagen and elastin production, which improves the skin’s texture, elasticity, and overall appearance.
During the procedure, a DermaPen is equipped with sterile, disposable needles that are gently rolled or stamped over the skin. By creating controlled micro-injuries, skin needling triggers the body’s natural response to heal, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. These proteins are essential for maintaining skin firmness, elasticity, and a youthful appearance.

A significant advantage of skin needling is its minimally invasive nature. Unlike more aggressive procedures like laser therapy, skin needling is gentle on the skin, making it suitable for individuals looking for skin rejuvenation with minimal downtime and risk. The controlled micro-injuries created during the procedure are superficial and typically heal within a few days. After the treatment, the skin may appear slightly red and swollen, similar to a mild sunburn. Proper post-procedure care, such as keeping the skin moisturized and protected from the sun, is essential to support the healing process.
Furthermore, skin needling is a customizable treatment, allowing practitioners to tailor the procedure based on the individual’s specific concerns. The depth and density of needle penetration can be adjusted, making it versatile for addressing various skin issues. Common concerns that can be targeted with skin needling include wrinkles, scars (such as acne scars), enlarged pores, and stretch marks. However, it’s crucial to have the procedure performed by trained and experienced professionals to ensure both safety and effectiveness.
Typically, skin needling is not a one-time fix; optimal results are achieved through a series of sessions, usually spaced several weeks apart. The exact number of sessions required depends on the individual’s skin condition and the desired outcomes. It’s essential to consult with one of our qualified licensed practitioners who can assess your specific needs, provide personalised advice, and perform the procedure safely and effectively.
Determining whether skin needling is suitable for you depends on several factors, including your skin concerns, overall health, and individual goals:
After the procedure, your skin might appear red and swollen, similar to a mild sunburn, for a few days. Ensure you are comfortable with the recovery process and any temporary changes in your appearance. Following the procedure, you’ll need to adhere to specific aftercare instructions to promote proper healing. Additionally, maintaining a good skincare routine is essential to preserving the results over time.
