MICRO NEEDLING (skin needling).

Micro Needling is an exciting natural treatment that dramatically increases the quantity, bioavailability and access of topical treatments and further enhances their absorption for cellular nutrition. Whilst we are not directly injecting products into the skin, this minimally invasive process creates micro channels to the dermis for the enhanced delivery of actives where they will have a cell regulating function, thereby improving skin appearance, texture and tone.

For optimal results, a course of treatments is required, ranging from 4 – 8 depending on the area being targeted. Treatments are recommended to be performed at 6 – 8 week intervals. Upon consultation your therapist will discuss the appropriate number of treatments and the suitable frequency to deliver the best results.


Micro Needling utilises the high quality and safe device to ensure a speedy recovery with minimal downtime.

Immediately following in-clinic treatments, the skin may appear temporarily reddened, similar to that of a mild to light sunburn. Whilst some clients have reported that the skin remains red and slightly swollen for 2-4 days, there will be no scabbing or lesions present.

How many treatments will I need?

Every persons skin is unique so the number of treatments you may need will vary depending on what condition you want treated with micro-needling Guidelines: Skin Rejuvenation: 3-6 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart Acne scarring: 6 treatments, 6 weeks apart Stretch marks: 4-8 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart

How long should it take to see results?

Typically, you will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will occur after 6-8 weeks. Lasting improvement is compounded as each consecutive treatment is performed and combined with the recommened post treatment care.

Is the treatment painful?

A numbing cream can be applied to increase comfort (legally the client must apply the numbing cream themselves, which needs to be applied to the skin for 30-45 minutes prior to treatment). There is some discomfort depending on adjusted needle length.

Is there downtime?

Each clients response is different. You may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment. We recommend not exercising and swimming for 24-48 hours after treatment, a light mineral makeup can be applied for the days following.

When can I have anti-wrinkle injections or dermal filler?

You can have a micro-needling treatment any day prior to your anti-wrinkle injections or dermal fillers. We recommend waiting 14 days after anti-wrinkles injections or dermal fillers so they can settle. Speak your your therapist or practitioner if you're unsure about time frames.

Do I need to prep my skin prior to treatment?

For optimal results we recommend you prep your skin for 14 days prior, using skinstitut's cosmedical skincare range. Incorporate the follwing: Lactic or glycolic cleanser Even blend Vitamin C Retinol (vitamin A) Sunscreen
