Skin needling combines the wisdom gained through thousands of years of acupuncture techniques with modern Mesotherapy practice and cosmetic medicine.
Your local Sydney based Skin Needling professionals at Cosmetic Culture can provide pain-free and affordable skin needling treatments to give you firmer, more even toned and revitalised skin after just one treatment.
Unlike lasers and other ablative treatments that break down the upper layer of the skin, requiring healing time, skin needling cause minor redness and irritation that usually disappears the next day.
Skin needling can be used for skin rejuvenation, collagen induction therapy, treating stretch marks and scars, hyper-pigmentation, wrinkles and hair loss therapy.
Skin needling treatment in Sydney involves rolling microscopic needles over the surface of the skin, creating tiny punctures that encourage the skin to heal itself from within.
A numbing cream may be used to ensure your treatment is comfortable and pain-free.
Skin needling is a non-invasive procedure that incorporates a small roller with tiny needles (.15mm-2.0mm) across the skin. This creates tiny almost invisible punctures in the upper layers of the skin, which then triggers the skins natural healing processes.
Before treatment, an anaesthetic cream may be applied to ensure you don’t feel any discomfort or pain.
After your treatment, you may experience some temporary inflammation and redness, which fades within hours.
During your consultation, a course of treatment may be recommended, usually requiring between 3-8 treatments, approximately 6-8 weeks apart.
How long does it take to see results from micro needling?
You’ll start to see initial results within a week, as your skin exfoliates away to reveal the fresh, plumper skin below.
Although everybody’s skin is different, a series of two or three treatments will usually be enough to show more visible differences.
What does micro needling do?
Micro needling is performed using a surgical grade roller that creates tiny holes in the upper layers of your skin. As the skin heals from these invisible wounds, it generates additional collagen and elastin that give skin a more youthful and smooth appearance.
What should I use on my skin after micro needling?
In the first 24 hours, your skin may be feeling a bit inflamed with some redness. Your aesthetician will advise you on the best skin care to reduce redness, as well as minimising the risk of infection and adverse reactions.
Using a high SPF sunscreen between treatments is important, as your skin may be more sensitive to the sun post-treatment.
Most people start to see results after the first week. As you exfoliate away the old layers of skin, the new skin beneath will be revealed, with decreased appearance of wrinkles, pigmentation, sun damage and scarring.
Many people report that their skin is radiant and glowing after treatment, with smoother pores and improved product absorption.
If you have severe issues with scarring or deeper lines, you will start to see more dramatic differences after several sessions.
