Skin needling is an advanced and effective treatment for a healthy youthful appearance; that’s why at Amena Wellness Clinic, we are proud to offer skin needling in Tweed Heads. As we age, the skin usually loses its smoothness and elasticity due to slow collagen production. However, the skin is still capable of renewing new collagen with a little boost. Skin needling is one of the effective non-invasive procedures that can help improve various skin conditions. We also offer cosmetic care skin treatments that keep you looking young and vibrant.
Skin needling also known as micro needling or collagen induction therapy is a skin rejuvenation treatment that involves the use of sterile micro-needles to prick micro holes in the skin. Skin needling creates microscopic channels in the skin causing slight injury under the skin. This makes the skin to start repairing itself and stimulates the body to produce its own natural collagen and elastin for smoother, firmer and more toned skin. The target is usually the upper dermis of the skin. Skin needling is ideal for:
- Reducing the appearance of scars
- Tightening and lifting the skin
- Reducing wrinkles and fine lines
- Reducing stretch marks
- Uneven skin tone
- Decreasing large pores
- Increasing skin elasticity
This cosmetic skin care treatment is usually applied on the face. However, other areas such as the neck can also be treated.
We begin the procedure by applying a topical anaesthetic to minimise any chances of pain. This is done 30 minutes before skin needling. We then use Mderma to make small picks under the skin. Mderma is a safe and high-quality device that is even ideal for sensitive areas such as around the eyelids and lips. The treatment takes around 30 minutes. We then apply a calming treatment after the procedure. You should not apply makeup or lotions on the day of the treatment.
The idea of having small needles pricking your skin might sound scary. However, when performed by a professional, the process is usually painless. You may experience some discomfort, minor redness or mild swellings that usually go away in a few days. The swelling or redness is usually due to the natural response to the slight injuries resulting from the procedure. For fast recovery, you should avoid excessive sun exposure and saunas until the redness fades away.
Number of Sessions Required
The number of sessions needed depends on the skin condition. Our cosmetic skin care specialist will give you an estimate on initial consultation and advice on the best course of action. Typically, 4-6 treatments are required for skin rejuvenation, 6 treatments for acne scars and 4- 8 treatments or stretch marks.
The treatment is minimally invasive and requires little downtime, if any at all. Results are usually visible after the first treatment. The conditions improve with each subsequent session until the desired result is achieved.
