Derma-needling, also called Micro-needling Therapy System (MTS) or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), involves using a tool called a Dermapen with tiny needles at the end that make little holes or needle pricks in the top layers of skin on the face or body.
These tiny pinpricks act as a bunch of mini injuries which kick skin into healing mode and stimulates collagen and elastin production. This process plumps skin and improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars and pores.
The little holes from the needles create “micro channels” that allow products, such as potent serums, to penetrate and absorb into the deeper layers of skin to deliver more powerful results.
Professional Dema-needling is able to penetrate to deeper layers of skin to treat more complex conditions such as scarring or stretch marks.
Derma-needling can be combined with our BB Glow Semi-Permanent Makeup for a natural ‘foundation effect’ on the skin, illuminating the skin’s radiance, whilst helping to hide facial imperfections, and provide a subtle effect of makeup.
WHAT EXACTLY IS DEMA-NEEDLING?
Derma-needling is a virtually painless procedure that will give you smoother, firmer, and younger looking skin.
Derma-needling treatment helps to repair the skin by using small needles. When passed over the skin, the needles create micro “injuries” in the skin to stimulate the fibroblast cells in your skin and to induce collagen production. Each micro “injury” creates a channel that triggers the body to produce new collagen and elastin to fill the microscopic wound. This tightens the skin, padding out pores, fine lines and wrinkles.
Derma-needling also assists skincare products like serum, which have a high molecular weight, to effectively penetrate the skin.
This procedure has no major side effects and beautiful results are noticeable in a short period of time.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Derma-needling may be one of the quickest and easiest ways to get more youthful looking skin, as it immediately improves the quality and texture of your skin. Not only does it make your skin look rejuvenated but it can also treat acne, help reduce scarring and even reduce oil production and black heads!

CAN I COMBINE DERMA-NEEDLING WITH ANOTHER TREATMENT?
WHAT RESULTS WILL I SEE?
Derma-needling immediately improves the quality and texture of your skin, making your skin look rejuvenated. Whilst you will see an improvement after your first treatment, usually a course of treatments is recommended. The final results might not be noticeable until you hit the three to twelve months mark as boosting collagen and elastin within the dermis takes time. However, as with most treatments it depends on the individual.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE DERMA-NEEDLING?
The number of treatments depends on your skin condition, but typically 3-5 treatments in 4-6 week intervals are recommended with maintenance treatments every 6-9 months.
HOW WILL I FEEL DURING DERMA-NEEDLING?
Most clients feel relaxed, and find derma-needling to be an enjoyable experience, especially when you are laying on our luxury heated treatment bed. A numbing cream will be used on your skin, so that you only feel a slight sensation during the treatment. We regularly check that you are comfortable and enjoying the treatment.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER DERMA-NEEDLING?
Avoid heat, saunas, hot tubs and sweaty activity for 24 hours; this includes exercise of any kind.
Avoid products containing any exfoliating agents (retinoic acid, retinol, tretinoin, retinol, benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, astringents, etc.) for 24 hours after treatment.
You may resume your regular skin care routine 24 hours after treatment.
