Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that encourages your skin to produce more elastin and collagen – helping you achieve glowing, fresh, collagen-rich skin.
The treatment uses tiny needles to create small micro punctures in the skin, which is followed by the application of a topical skin solution to treat ageing, scarring or pigmentation. The skin will then begin to heal itself and during this process, new cells are produced.
Microneedling can combat stretch marks, acne scarring, ageing, pigmentation, sun damage. It is also effective in improving its tone and texture and rejuvenating the skin.
The procedure stimulates the production of new skin cells, meaning your skin will look healthier and have a more even appearance.
It is important to weigh up the risks involved against the benefits that the treatment can bring – just as with all types of medical aesthetic treatment.
Your medical aesthetic practitioner will talk you through any risks and complications, although possible side effects are usually minimal. They include flaking skin, redness, and tenderness.
Skin conditions which are not improving with skin care products could be suitable for microneedling. Your medical aesthetician will assess your skin to see if the treatment is right for you, microneedling can be used for most skin types and conditions.
You might need a collagen boost from the inside if your skin is suffering from pigmentation, acne scarring, or sun damage that needs breaking down. Microneedling is also suitable in achieving a more even skin tone and if you want to refresh dull and tired skin.

During this conversation you can talk through why you’re interested in this treatment, how much it costs, whether you’re suitable for treatment, if you’ll need a one off treatment, or a full course, as well as potential treatment dates.
You can ask our medical aesthetic practitioners any questions as they are extremely knowledgeable and have undertaken extensive training. If you feel ready to proceed, we can carry out a laser patch test (where applicable) and book your first treatment for a date and time that suits you.
You can ask your medical aesthetic practitioner any final questions on the day of the treatment. All pre- and post-treatment advice will be discussed prior to the day itself, so you will know exactly what to expect during your treatment, including how long it will take, and how it will feel.
For most medical aesthetic treatments, you will be able to leave the clinic as soon as your treatment has been completed, and you should be able to go about your normal day-to-day activities. If you experience any mild discomfort, redness or swelling, this will subside within the following days. Any specific aftercare requirements will be discussed at your consultation.
