Skin needling is a minimally invasive treatment mild enough to be used on sensitive areas. We’ve seen exceptional results in removing blemishes, broken capillaries, fine lines and wrinkles.
Our clients, even those who’ve had a skin needling session before, are often astonished by just how effective our needling and microneedling treatments can be. In our capable hands, needling can be one of the more effective and least invasive skin treatments.
As you can see from our before and after gallery, we aren’t all talk. Our skin needling results have restored the confidence of countless clients across Melbourne. Across Australia, in fact, considering our loyal clients who fly interstate to work with the specialists they trust best.
Not only does skin needling help to alleviate common skin conditions, but it also remains effective across all ages and skin types, including darker skin tones.
Our dermal clinicians are passionate and certified skincare specialists. We continually research the science behind skincare, review techniques and trial new technologies. We've done all the background checks, so you don't have to.
Skin needling (Collagen Induction Therapy) is a minimally invasive treatment that can improve skin texture and tone.
The procedure involves using fine needles to create tiny punctures in the skin. This stimulation triggers the skin's natural healing response, producing new collagen and elastin.
It also stimulates new cell growth and helps the body to clear old cells.
And contrary to popular belief, needling does not inject anything into your skin.
We insist on using either the mesoestetic m-pen or the Cynosure Vivace RF needling device. In our experience, these two are the best devices on the market.
The m-pen is a marvel of engineering, and its extreme precision ensures even penetration, so your skin can heal faster. The Vivace RF delivers exceptional results by stimulating your skin with radiofrequency as it needles, promoting even greater collagen production.
Micro-needling can be performed on the face, neck, chest, hands, and other areas of the body. It is generally well tolerated with minimal side effects. Some redness, swelling, and bruising may occur, but these typically resolve within a few days.
Skin needling reduces fine lines and wrinkles and heals acne scarring. It also reduces the appearance of skin pigmentation, enlarged pores, and stretch marks. If you're concerned about any of these skin conditions, you're a candidate for skin needling treatment.
It is important to follow the proper skin care regimen before your skin needling treatment. This will ensure that your skin is ready for treatment and minimise the risk of adverse reactions. In general, before your appointment, you must:
We'll provide comprehensive advice on preparing your skin when you book your treatment.
Immediately following your procedure, you may feel a tight tingling sensation. Mild swelling and redness may present for one to two days. You can reduce swelling by applying a cold compress to the treated area, and avoiding hot showers. These are normal side effects of microneedling and should pass quickly.
We'll provide you with more information regarding aftercare when you book your appointment. If you have any questions or concerns post-treatment, phone or email us, and we'll get back to you immediately.

Wrinkles, spots and scars aren’t confined to any one area of the body. Fortunately, our specialists can administer needling treatment wherever you need it. Here are only a few of the common areas we treat.
Full-face skin needling can treat various skin concerns, including wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, scars, and stretch marks. You may also use skin needling treatments to target problem areas such as the nasolabial fold (the lines stretching from the corners of your mouth to your nose).
Skin needling procedures are minimally invasive and typically have little downtime. They are also perfectly safe to use on sensitive skin areas like the face.
Lips are often one of the first places where wrinkles, fine lines, and volume loss begin to show.
Skin needling can be an effective treatment for lips, helping to reduce the appearance of these concerns and restore a more youthful look. By triggering the natural healing process in your skin, you can plump up your lips naturally.
Improving the look and feel of the delicate skin in the decolletage, or chest area, is a common goal among both men and women.
Though we also offer chemical peel and laser treatments for these areas, our clients often prefer skin needling due to its minimal downtime and impressive results.
The ageing process, sun damage and lifestyle factors can all lead to skin concerns on the neck, such as wrinkles, sagging skin and age spots.
Skin needling triggers the body's wound-healing response, producing new collagen and elastin. This can help to tighten sagging skin, improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the neck.
I met Derya during my first consultation, and she did a full skin analysis of my face and explained to me the different treatments that would improve my skin pigmentation and texture.
She was fantastic and very knowledgeable. Looking forward to starting my treatment at the clinic.
I started visiting Vic Dermal Group after hearing amazing reviews. All the staff were wonderful and professional. And the treatment I received has left me with glowing skin. I have kept going back as a consequence.
I was apprehensive about visiting a new clinic, but I was not getting the results I wanted at my regular clinic, so I made the swap. I am so happy my makeup artist recommended your clinic. I have been confident in my treatments moving forward and am excited to see some results.
Every time I've visited VDG, it has been a great experience. All the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. From consultation through to treatment, I cannot fault them. I even received follow-up phone calls after the initial treatments to ensure everything was okay.
You’ll hear plenty from our dermatologists at your consultation. For now, have a read of what our clients have to say about the results we deliver.
As a makeup artist, Suzy knows clear skin is the best foundation to start with. She loves our Clear + Brilliant laser treatment because it tightens pores and stimulates collagen, promoting the fresh-faced look she loves so much. And the reason she loves it so much? It's gentle, and suitable for many different skin types.
Despite her beautiful voice, singer Adelaide Clark has her own skin concerns. She's been carving out the time in her schedule to book treatments for a little over six months. We worked with Adelaide to formulate a tailored plan to target her skin concerns, and prevent premature ageing.
Model Lissy Jaye has a busy schedule. Between modelling shoots, self care, and socialising with friends, getting rid of unwanted hair can be a time-sucking hassle. Her life is now that much easier, after receiving laser hair removal treatments at clinic in Kew.
Treatment times vary, but our skin needling sessions usually take between 30 to 60 minutes, regardless of which treatment you have booked.
Our clients see a noticeable change in their skin condition within weeks of their first procedure. Your skin will become more radiant as it continues to heal and produce collagen.
The number of sessions you'll need to achieve maximum results will depend on your unique skin type and lifestyle. Usually, our clients book three to four skin needling sessions for mild scarring and wrinkles. More sessions may be required if the skin condition is more prominent.
After receiving RF microneedling, you can return to work straight away. If you book the m-pen procedure, you should take the rest of the day off to recover and ice your skin.
Our clients do not describe microneedling as painful, per se, but they do describe it as uncomfortable. However, we can apply a numbing cream to the treatment area so that you experience minimal discomfort.
Fill in the form with any questions, and we'll get back to you asap.
