Skin Needling

It's boosting collagen with confidence.

Skin needling (Dermal rolling) stimulates the production of your collagen to create smoother, healthier skin. It reduces acne scarring, stretch marks, fine lines, pigmentation, enlarged pores, blackheads and scarring.

Skin needling benefits

How it works

Skin Needling can be performed in two ways. Dermal Rolling, using the cosmedical DNC derma roller or Micro Needling, using the Wireless Tri-M Pen. Your therapist will advise which option is best for you and your skin goals.

The treatment involves applying a small roller made of tiny needles to the surface of the skin. The roller creates tiny puncture channels that encourage an organic collagen renewal and regeneration response.

This wound healing response is what stimulates new collagen and elastin formation which then assists with plumping out fine lines, wrinkles and acne scarring. It also reduces the appearance of pigmentation, enlarged pores and stretch marks.

Preparation

At your complimentary consultation, your therapist will create a tailored preparation plan based on your skin type. Adhering to your preparation plan is key to achieving optimum results from your Skin Needling treatment.

 

Aftercare

Any redness and irritation will subside within 3-4 hours. For the first 48 hours, avoid excessive sun exposure, saunas and exercise.

Aftercare may require Insitut's Gentle Cleanser, Enzymatic Micro Peel, Rejuvenate 15, Age Defense 50+ & DNC Home Roller as per advice from your therapist.

For your best results

For optimum results, we recommend a total course of 4-6 treatments with each treatment spaced monthly.

Top tip: team Skin Needling with Yellow LED Light Therapy to accelerate the healing process. By adding the LED Light Therapy treatment to your Skin Needling session, you will energise the cells so they function at full potential. This further stimulates the production of collagen and elastin and leaves the skin more radiant and youthful.

The mineral-rich Institut Rejuvenate Serum is a perfect product to help maintain results. It is designed to accelerate skin renewal and increase skin firmness and elasticity.

What to expect

Skin Needling is an organic way of rebuilding collagen elastin and can be performed in two ways. Dermal Rolling, using the cosmedical DNC derma roller or Micro-Needling, using the Wireless Tri-M Pen. Your therapist will advise which option is best for you and your skin goals.

The treatment involves applying a small roller made of tiny needles to the surface of the skin. The roller creates tiny puncture channels that encourage an organic collagen renewal and regeneration response.

This wound healing response is what stimulates new collagen and elastin formation which then assists with plumping out fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scarring. It also reduces the appearance of pigmentation, enlarged pores, and stretch marks.

Think of acupuncture, as the concept is very similar to Skin Needling. The tiny needles create microscopic channels into the skin causing a controlled wound that forces the body to promote healing in the affected area. Skin Needling also increases cell renewal which assists in the normalising of dysfunctioning pigment cells for a clearer, more even skin tone and texture.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is Skin Needling painful?

    The treatment has minimal discomfort due to the application of a topical aesthetic prior to the treatment.

  • What is the difference between Dermal Rolling and Fractional RF (Max RF)?
    Dermal Rolling and Fractional RF are similar in the sense they both cause a controlled wound which then triggers a healing response where new collagen and elastin fibres are produced. Dermal rolling is an organic way of stimulating Collagen and Elastin production whereas Fractional RF uses a combination of dermal stamping and Radio Frequency. Radio Frequency uses deep thermal effects which result in contraction of the collagen fibres. This will give a tightening effect after the treatment.
  • What will my skin look like when I walk out of the clinic - will I need time off work?
    Each person’s skin is different – so your response will vary, but the majority of our skin treatments require no downtime. . Your therapist will take you through a post-treatment care regime that will minimise any impact to your skin.
  • Why do I need to use aftercare products?

    The importance of before and aftercare is to ensure you receive maximum results with minimal side effects to the treatments we offer. This includes our skin and laser treatments and can even be applied to cosmetic injections.

    For example our 5 a-day home care pack has everything you need for before and after your treatments. It will help to ensure you get fantastic results and your skin will heal and respond effectively following your treatments.
