The ultimate in collagen induction treatments The Benefits of Skin Needling

  • Treat yourself to a vibrant, glowing complexion and turn back the clock on dull, tired skin.
  • Skin needling is a short, comfortable procedure performed under topical numbing cream. By creating microscopic trauma to the deeper layers of the skin, the release of an intensive cascade of growth and healing factors are triggered. This boosts the body’s natural collagen production, creating healthy, vibrant, renewed skin.
  • There is no heat energy delivered with skin needling, so it is safe to use on all skin types without the risk of pigmentation, which is a risk with laser and light based procedures.
  • Treatments can be targeted to any area of the body requiring skin rejuvenation. Most popularly, skin needling is used on problem areas such as: crows feet, forehead lines, under eye dark circles, neck or chest lines.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does Dermapen skin needling work?

Dermal skin needling involves passing ultrafine needles over the skin to create microtrauma in the skins dermal layers. This stimulates the production of new collagen fibres, which results in lifting and rejuvenation of the treated area. It also improves the appearance of pigmentation, enlarged pores, wrinkles, scarring and stretch marks. The production of collagen can take anywhere from 30-90 days, meaning your results will continue to improve overtime.

What conditions benefit from Dermapen skin needling?

Skin needling is a very effective treatment for overall facial rejuvenation, improving tone, texture and skin tightness. Other common conditions treated include:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • Acne scarring
  • Sun damage

Is skin needling worth it?

Microneedling with the dermapen is one of the most effective collagen induction therapies available.

Skin needling smooths fine lines, wrinkles, tightens enlarged pores, smooths skin tone, erases scars including acne scars and improves the appearance of stretch marks.

Ratings on the consumer review website show 84% rated this procedure as worth it.

It is an inexpensive approach to making your skin look brighter and younger.

Does skin needling actually work?

Skin needling is one of the more evidenced backed treatments offered in cosmetic clinics.

Dating back to the early 1990s, countless studies have proven the efficacy of skin needling beyond doubt.

Findings of these studies include improvements in:

  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Skin texture
  • Skin tightness
  • Pore size
  • Skin laxity
  • Scar and stretch mark prominence

Studies have shown some positive effects are largely due to the remodelling of type 3 collagen (older collagen), to type 1 collagen (younger skin collagen). This is not a permanent change and top up treatments every 6-12 months are required for the result to maintain.

Who is a good candidate for skin needling?

Those looking to improve the tone and texture of their skin, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, stimulate collagen production and treat acne or general scarring are perfect candidates for skin needling.

Skin needling is not recommended for those who are pregnant, have active skin infections/rash in the treatment area or are unwell.

Is skin needling good for acne?

Skin needling is an excellent treatment for acne scarring.

We do not recommend skin needling over areas of active acne as this increases the risk of infection, particularly the risk of spreading flare ups. Active acne is often colonised with p.acnes bacteria.


Does skin needling work for rosacea or broken capillaries?

No. Skin needling cannot help improve rosacea.

Rosacea and broken capillaries will not improve with micro-needling. If anything, you may cause excessive bruising and bleeding if needling is used over active rosacea.

Rosacea or broken capillaries require laser or light based therapies for adequate treatment. See our Rosacea page for more information.


Is skin needling good for pigmentation?

There are very good studies suggesting skin needling is good for pigmentation, particularly Melasma.

Melasma is a condition that worsens with any energy based device that causes heat in the skin (most lasers, IPL, radio-frequency needling etc.). Skin needling combats this issue perfectly as there is no heat delivered during treatment.

Skin needling is also good for smoothing irregular pigmentation in those with darker skin types, as some lasers and light based devices cannot be used in darker skin types.

Which is better skin needling or laser?

This depends on your particular:

  • Skin concerns
  • Budget
  • Goals of treatment
  • Skin type

You should discuss with our team regarding which option best suits you. We have cosmetic experts available at all times online ready to help with any questions you may have.
