Microneedling: Treatment Focus

Microneedling is a type of treatment that uses small needles to cause tiny punctures in the skin. These small contact points encourage the body to create a wound healing response and renew the skin cells. As your skin repairs, the production of collagen and elastin is triggered to give an almost immediate plumping effect. It can also help tackle other skin damage such as scarring, dark marks, sun damage and ageing.

At Beyond Skin we use the Dermica Gold Pen which uses 11 needles and can be adjusted to between 0.5-2.5mm penetration depth. The Dermica Gold Pen is the most professional high speed micro-needling system for medical use. The results are a faster and clients report  a more visible rejuvenating effect after the first treatment.

Microneedling can be used to:

  • Minimise fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduce acne scarring
  • Minimises pore size
  • Tighten skin, lifting and rejuvenation

Microneedling: A Safe, Simple & Effective Treatment

  • Unsightly scars appear less obvious
  • Helps to smooth away wrinkles, line, folds and skin aging related concerns
  • Dramatically increases absorption of active ingredients
  • Efficacy of active skincare products is maximized

How it works? Skin needling works through two modes of action:

  • The needles penetrate through the skin to provide micro-channels to maximize the absorption of the topically applied skincare product
  • The micro-channels induce independent stimulation of new collagen and elastin synthesis, resulting from the skin’s natural healing response resulting in improved skin strength, structure and resilience
