FAQ's

How does MicroNeedling work?

MicroNeedling creates tiny punctures in the skin that are too small to damage the tissue, but enough to stimulate a healing response in your skin. As part of this healing response, your skin cells and collagen fibres regenerate themselves.

Collagen is responsible for strength and elasticity in your skin. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, which causes our skin to crease and sag. Rebuilding collagen can also help repair textural concerns on the surface, such as enlarged pores and mild scarring.

MicroNeedling also helps the growth factor serum to penetrate the skin. Growth factors are natural proteins that stimulate tissue growth and repair. They aid the healing response produced by MicroNeedling.

What does a MicroNeedling treatment involve?

First, your skin will be cleansed and gently exfoliated. Then, a highly trained Clinician will apply a hydrating serum and carefully glide the MicroNeedling pen over the surface of your skin. The growth factor serum is applied after the needling is performed so it can sink in through the micro penetration points.

How long does a MicroNeedling treatment take?

About 20-30 minutes for the full face.

What are the results from MicroNeedling?

Results appear gradually as your skin needs time to heal and collagen can take time to rebuild, however, you may notice a slightly plumped and glowing appearance the day after your treatment as the healing process has begun.

Overall, MicroNeedling with Growth Factors can help reduce fine lines, refine large pores, reduce mild surface scarring and improve the overall texture and tone of your skin.

How many MicroNeedling treatments will I need?

Some results can be seen after one treatment, but depending on the nature of your skin, you may require regular treatments to maintain results.

Does MicroNeedling hurt?

Because the needles are very fine and they do not penetrate deeply into the skin, this treatment is relatively comfortable. It feels similar to a professional exfoliation treatment.

How is MicroNeedling different to RF Needling?

RF Needling uses a different needling handpiece with a greater range of depths for different parts of the face where the skin is thicker, enabling it to treat deeper layers of the skin. More importantly, RF Needling also pairs MicroNeedling with radiofrequency energy which stimulates collagen at various layers of the skin.

MicroNeedling with Growth Factors is an excellent treatment for superficial concerns with fine lines, coarse pores, and mild surface scarring. RF Needling is more appropriate for skin tightening and deeper acne scarring because it treats the deeper layers of skin and stimulates collagen at more layers.

How is MicroNeedling different from PRP?

PRP contains growth factor proteins derived from a sample of your own blood. The growth factor proteins found in our growth factor serum are produced in a laboratory.

Additionally, PRP is injected directly into different depths of the skin with a specialised injection gun, allowing for deeper diffusion of growth factors. For MicroNeedling with Growth Factors, we apply the Growth Factor Serum topically and create micro punctures to help the serum penetrate the skin.

Is there any downtime following a MicroNeedling treatment?

You may have redness and mild swelling after treatment which is normal and subsides in 24 hours. Redness can be concealed with a mineral powder 30 minutes after treatment.

Is there any prepping or aftercare?

Depending on your skin type, you may be recommended to use a pigment inhibitor or a vitamin serum leading up to treatment. You can ask about this during a free consultation with one of our Clinicians.

After the treatment, we recommend using a collagen peptide serum containing some growth factors to help the skin heal and improve your results.

Can I purchase the Growth Factor Serum for at-home use?

Due to the high concentration of the Growth Factor Serum used in treatment, it is reserved for clinical use only, however, we will recommend a collagen serum that contains some growth factors for you to use at home.

Which areas can MicroNeedling treat?

MicroNeedling with Growth Factors can treat the face, neck, décolletage, hands and anywhere else on the body where you want to improve texture and tone.

Who can be treated? Is anyone unsuitable for MicroNeedling?

This treatment is safe for all skin types.

It is not recommended for those with certain conditions, such as active bacterial infections or immuno-suppression conditions. If you’re uncertain about your suitability for this treatment, you’re welcome to come in for a free consultation with our expert Clinicians.
