Micro-needling is a vibrational stamping device that uses very fine needles to increase skin stimulation, and effectively targets fine lines, wrinkles and scarring. Through vertical penetration, infusion channels are created into the skin to instantly hydrate with hyaluronic acid skin stimulating ingredients. Unlike any heat based technology, there is no burning or skin coagulation. The side effects are dramatically reduced and the risk almost zero.*

The Procedure

The skin is cleansed and sterilised. Generally the skin will need to be numbed to ensure your comfort. The tip will glide over your skin creating stimulating channels and an even flushing is the best indication for a perfect medical treatment. The treatment usually takes around 1.5 hours in total*

Recovery From Micro Needling

The inflammatory reaction of the skin is extremely short-lived and fades significantly within hours from redness to pinkness that may last from 12 to 24 hours. A cooling mask is applied immediately following the treatment. This is rich in healing minerals and hyaluronic acid to soothe and calm the skin.*
