Micro-needling (or skin needling) is your go-to treatment for instantly firmer and smoother skin! Known for its incredible ability to stimulate the growth of collagen and elastin, micro-needling delivers real results in overall skin rejuvenation.
Micro-needling works by using tiny needles to create small perforations, or ‘micro-channels’ in the skin. This stimulates the healing response of the deeper layers and encourages your skin to make new, collagen-rich tissue.
The micro-channels created during the treatment allow active ingredients from your skincare products to penetrate to the deepest layers of the skin to deliver even more powerful results.
Not only will this leave you glowing, it can also reduce scarring, stretch marks, blackheads, open pores, fine lines, hyperpigmentation and more. Due to the speed of the device, treatments are fast, comfortable and able to target large or multiple areas at once.
The procedure is done with medical grade topical anaesthetics cream. It is virtually pain free with only minor discomfort reported by clients. The depth of needling varies depending on skin thickness and treatment goals but can be up to 2.5mm.
Apart from some minor redness which may last 24-48 hours post treatment, there is generally minimal recovery post microneedling. Your skin will also be more sensitive to the sun post-treatment, so ensure you apply an SPF30+ sunscreen when you’re out and about.
It is important to keep the skin well hydrated post treatment. Dr Jimmy stocks a range of different anti-aging serums and hydration skin masks which can be purchased at the end of the treatment.
For clients with hyperpigmentation and melasma, microneedling is best combined with tailor made prescriptive brightening creams which can be obtained from Dr Jimmy. The results are amazing!
Dr Jimmy recommends a minimum of four treatments to continually build your collagen and elastin. Prices start at $110 per treatment for full face.
