Professional skin needling for several skin conditions

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.

Fine lines & wrinkles

Microneedling is an excellent anti-ageing treatment. Needling helps your skin stay hydrated, soft and supple by boosting collagen production.


Skin pigmentation

Skin needling breaks up concentrated blotches of your skin’s pigmentation and promotes cell regeneration. Not only does it remove hyperpigmentation, but it also leaves your skin even-toned.



Needling easily breaks up melasma’s patchy pigmentation, which is typically caused by hormonal changes, especially during pregnancy. Needling is safe during pregnancy.


Stretch marks

Skin needling effectively treats both stretch marks and cellulite. It works by breaking down the connective tissue that causes the dimpling effect on the skin.


Sagging skin

Loose and sagging skin can be improved with microneedling treatments. The needling device stimulates collagen production, which helps to tighten and lift the skin.



We often recommend skin needling for clients looking to remove scars. We can treat acne scars, fine surgical scars, and even thick keloid scars.


Our renowned clinicians

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.

How does skin needling work?

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.

How It Works

Only the best

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.

The Technology

Highly effective and versatile, needling works for everyone

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.

Who It’s For

How to prepare your skin for 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:

  • Avoid skin care treatments (including laser, chemical, needling and hair removal) for two weeks
  • Avoid strenuous exercise for at least a week
  • Avoid alcohol and blood-thinning medication for at least two days
  • Attend your appointment with clean, makeup-free skin

We'll provide comprehensive advice on preparing your skin when you book your treatment.


Skin needling aftercare

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.

As a full-service skincare clinic, our team specialise in various treatments. Book a consultation so that we can discuss your goals and design a personalised treatment plan.

We offer targeted and full-body skin needling treatment

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.

Face needling

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.

Skin needling for your lips

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.

Skin needling for your decolletage

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.

Skin needling for your neck

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the m-pen treatment take?

Treatment times vary, but our skin needling sessions usually take between 30 to 60 minutes, regardless of which treatment you have booked.

How long after receiving a skin needling treatment will I see results?

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.

How often should I get microneedling treatment?

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.

Will I need time off work?

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.

Does microneedling hurt?

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.
