What are the benefits of micro-needling?
Micro-needling is the most effective non-evasive pro-ageing facial treatment you can have to improve your skin health.
It’s a long-lasting pro-ageing treatment and especially good for issues like lack of tone, loose skin, and improving firmness. I’ve also seen fantastic results on large open pores, pigmentation and historical scars.
It can be used on all skin types and unlike micro-dermabrasion and skin peels, you can have micro-needling at any time of the year without nay risks.
How does micro-needling work?
Micro-needling is the penetration of tiny thin needles (140) into the skin at approx 0.8mm depth. This targets the hypodermis layer to cause an inflammatory response which triggers the natural production of collagen and elastin.
Products such as hyaluronic acid and active nutrient-dense serums [NCTF135HA Serum] are penetrated deep into the dermal layer of the skin to influence your skin health for the following month.
As the needles penetrate, they cause trauma to the skin. This stimulates the fibroblasts (the part of our immune system that binds the skin together) and triggers a natural healing response that boosts the collagen and elastin that’s made naturally by the body.
The serums then encourage the production of good quality collagen and elastin and the treatment leads to smoother, younger-looking, rejuvenated skin
Does micro-needling hurt?
The technique and depth of the needles reduces discomfort during treatment, but you may see some redness for up to 24 hours afterwards. Your skin may also feel dry for several days, but after two weeks, it will feel wonderful!

Yes, all skin types will benefit from micro-needling. unlike micro-dermabrasion and skin glycolic peels.
You can have micro-needling at any time of the year as the epidermis layer of your skin remains intact.
SPF 50+ must be applied every day to maintain good quality skin health.
The speed and size of the needles reduce discomfort during treatment. Both the depth and the speed can be customised to make sure you’re comfortable throughout.
Laser treatments use heat, micro-needling doesn’t. Micro-needling is non-thermal and non-surgical so it can be performed on all skin types with reduced risk of post-inflammatory pigmentation or formation of fibrotic scar tissue.
The actual skin micro-needling only takes around 20 minutes, but the full treatment takes between 45 and 60 minutes. I’ll cleanse the skin and apply some soothing serums first, then micro-needle. Afterwards, I’ll apply a mask, cleanse again and finish with some more gentle serums and creams.
Expect your face to be red and a little bit sore for up to 36 hours afterwards. It may also feel dry and tight for several days, a little like you have sunburn. These are natural responses to the trauma caused during the treatment.

Yes, you can apply serums and moisturisers as normal. Hydrating serums are especially good – I can advise on a hyaluronic acid post-treatment which will ease the tightness.

One treatment will give you results. A skin health treatment protocol will give you lasting, visible results. Each treatment should be four weeks apart and spread over a 12 week period. After that, a treatment every 6-8 weeks will maintain the results and give you firmer, smoother skin.
Deep micro-needling should only be performed 4 to 6 weeks apart.

Ideally, your first treatments should be skin rejuvenation only [within 0.6mm] in skin, then micro-needling can be introduced four weeks apart over a 12 week period and then every 6-8 weeks after that.

Yes. I go through a full medical history with all clients before micro-needling to assess any medical conditions and medications you might be taking. If you’re diabetic, we’ll discuss the type of diabetes and how you manage it.
