What will microneedling do for your skin?
Everything You Need To Know About Microneedling.
Designed to enhance luminosity and revitalise the skin. We have developed FACE, HAIR and BODY home Microneedling devices for those seeking rejuvenated fresh healthy skin.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling uses a handheld device with hundreds of micro-fine, medical grade titanium needles designed to roll across your skin to create microscopic injuries. Clinically referred to as ‘collagen induction therapy’ or 'CIT', and often referred to as 'dermarolling'. It is a treatment designed to invoke the healing response in your skin by causing micro-trauma in a carefully controlled manner. Performing the treatment on yourself is simple, painless and the results rather fabulous.
When Microneedling, you’re making microscopic indentations in your skin’s collagen matrix along with creating “micro-channels,” which allow skincare products to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin. Research has shown product absorption can be up to 300% more than without Microneedling. The treatment boosts the production of collagen and elastin in the treated area and will refine, rejuvenate and renew the skin. Microneedling is a treatment that you can do at home or in a clinic. In clinic treatments use much longer needles, up to 3mm, which requires numbing cream before treatment. Using this length of needle, is often referred to as 'Medical Microneedling'.
Microneedling at home, two to three times every week may be one of the quickest and easiest ways to achieve flawlessly illuminated skin.
Always roll on freshly cleansed skin and ensure you sanitise your device before and after every treatment to avoid bacteria build-up. Infection spreads so do not use on breakouts or inflamed skin.

Microneedling is a multipurpose treatment that helps improve the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars, sagging skin, uneven skin tone and enlarged pores.
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
The micro-channels created, kick starts the healing process and reminds the skin to produce more collagen and elastin thereby plumping the skin from the sub-layers.
- Reduce hyperpigmentation and give you a more even skin tone
Any sort of skin problem (inflammation, pimples, eczema) and sun damage, can result in the skin changing colour, leaving the skin looking blotchy, uneven, and ultimately older. Microneedling can successfully help reduce and improve skin tone.
- Exfoliate the skin
Exfoliation is important because removing dead skin cells makes your skin look fresh, smooth and illuminated.
- Better absorption of your skin care products.
The micro-channels created during treatment enable serums and creams to be absorbed in a way that simply isn’t possible on untreated skin, in fact, research has shown it to be up to 300% more!
- Reduce scarring
Scarring is caused by a process known as fibrosis. This is a very good thing when healing larger wounds, because it makes everything stick together. However, beneath the skin the ‘glue’ is so strong that it can pull the skin down and create pock marks or scars. Not so good.
Microneedling helps to break down fibrosis underneath the skin which allows the skin to ‘let go’ and release the surface of the skin, reducing the appearance of the scar.
- Reduce enlarged pores
By encouraging the little blood vessels to supply blood, oxygen and nutrients straight into the dermis (the second layer of skin), the pores are ultimately tightened. Ironic, isn’t it? By making holes in your skin, you make the holes that are already there smaller…
Does the treatment hurt?
Home Microneedling tools generate a little sensation though are painless. The sensation is like an exfoliating scrub and the micro-channels created in the skin are imperceptible to the eye. Your skin may be a little pink afterwards so we advise doing this treatment at night time.
Can the needles damage the skin?
Poor quality needles can damage the skin. Our needles are ultra fine, medical grade, sterile and titanium, which we believe is the best quality. It is safe to treat your skin with our Microneedling device even if you have sensitive skin. Do not drag the roller across the skin, microneedle each section gently then lift the device to move to the next section.
When to avoid Microneedling?
Our Microneedling treatments are safe and suitable for all skin types. However there are situations when you should avoid it.
Hold off with Microneedling if you:
- Have active acne
- Have open wounds
- Have visible infections
- Have a psoriasis flare up
