Micro-needling is an innovation in aesthetics for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the skin’s texture, tone and colour. The skin’s repair process results in improvement of the appearance of softer wrinkles.
If you’re tired of fine lines, wrinkles, and the other common signs of aging but don’t want to undergo a surgical procedure, this innovative facial and body rejuvenation treatment may be the right fit for you!
How it works
A fine needled device is used to pierce the skin to create a controlled skin injury. Each puncture produces a channel that triggers the body to heal these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin, causing the cells to regenerate and repair. These miniature fissures jump-start the body’s natural healing process, stimulating elastin and collagen production.

Is There Any Downtime?
The skin may be pink or red in appearance for 24-48 hours, much like a sunburn with some minor bleeding and very occasionally some mild bruising. Generally, the inflammatory reaction of the skin is overall usually short and fades significantly after a couple of days on average, depending on the skin colour of the individual.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long does the treatment take?
A treatment session itself only lasts between 20 and 30 minutes depending on how many areas need to be treated. However, you must wait for the numbing cream to take effect and have your treatment area disinfected. Expect to spend at least an hour from start to finish.
Does it hurt?
A numbing cream on the skin is used before the procedure in order to render the procedure painless. Nonetheless, some pressure sensations will still be felt, although these should not be painful.
When will I see results?
Patients may witness a noticeable glow to their skin. More visible changes to the skin will develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results will continue to improve for several weeks after the treatment as collagen production continues.
How many treatments do I need?
Some patients may only require a single treatment, once per year, to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 4-6 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars, it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 4-6 week intervals.

Nano Infusion is a no-needle alternative to microneedling. It mimics the results of microneedling by creating micro-channels into the skin to deliver product ingredients, that would otherwise struggle to bypass the skin's lipid barrier.
It does not pierce the skin, no numbing cream, no needles, no blood and no downtime.
