Geelong skin needling
Skin needling is a natural treatment carried out to improve skin texture, smooth wrinkles and fine lines and soften scars.
Face needling works by using a surgical grade instrument with micro needles to create microscopic “punctures” in the top layer of your skin. This tiny amount of medical skin needling actually promotes the natural reproduction of elastin and collagen which in turn results in your skin feel markedly tighter and smoother.
For most clients, we recommend a series of at least three dermal needling sessions to achieve optimal results and rejuvenation. Each skin needling treatment should be carried out approximately five to six weeks apart.
Skin needling for acne scars and other scarring can be carried out safely here at our Geelong cosmetic skin clinic without the risk of pigmentation which can occur with laser treatments. Where we are carrying out skin needling to treat pigmentation and acne scarring, we would recommend at leave five to six treatments, performed five to six weeks apart to see optimal results.
After skin needling treatment, we recommend that you do not use glycolic acid, retinol and any skin care products with “active” ingredients, do not rub or touch your face if possible, and avoid makeup and exposure to the sun for at least 48 hours.
Side effects from skin needling treatments are minimal, and include mild swelling and bruising.
You should be able to return to work and normal daily activities directly from your appointment. Most of our clients find that any redness resulting from the treatment is easily covered with make-up and generally fades within 12 to 24 hours.
