Micro-Needling – How Does Micro Skin Needling Work

The concept behind skin needling is our skin’s ability to heal itself. Micro-Needling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a very safe and cost effective treatment to improve fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars and even cellulite.


Performed using a specialised sterile roller with hundreds of tiny, carefully constructed needles set at the optimum depth for your skin, the roller is passed over the targeted areas, causing microscopic channels where each little needle sinks into the skin.


These tiny channels in the dermis trigger the body’s healing response, stimulating collagen and elastin production. The skin plumps up, greatly reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and leaves skin radiant and refreshed after healing.

Micro-Needling for Radiant Skin

Micro-Needling also helps exfoliate old dead skin cells, and greatly improves the effect of topical skincare creams used after the treatment, as absorption is much better. It’s painless, and the results are excellent and lasting, leaving you with much fresher looking, healthy skin.


It’s a great anti-aging treatment, because as we grow older our skin loses its natural firmness and collapses in places, leaving us with fine lines around our eyes, mouth and forehead. Micro-Needling helps to reinvigorate the skin so these lines become far less noticeable, and the effects last a long time.


The exfoliating effect is also a terrific way of achieving a more youthful glow, as the dead skin cells that cling to the upper layer of skin are flat and dull, causing a matt, non-light reflecting, almost grubby appearance. When these cells are sloughed away, our skin looks far more radiant.

Makes Skincare Products More Effective

As Micro-Needling allows skin care products to pass into the skin more effectively, all topical skincare products can penetrate properly and we get a much better result, particularly if you apply vitamin creams that need to sink into the skin.
