Micro-Needling

SkinPen® is the first FDA-cleared micro-needling device used to improve and rejuvenate skin throughout the face and body by creating tiny needle-like injuries in the deeper layers of the skin. This triggers the body’s natural wound healing response which stimulates new production of collagen and improves skin elasticity.

The use of SkinPen® is safer compared to other needling treatments. It can be used on many different body parts (face, neck, décolletage, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back) to improve fine-lines and wrinkles, stretch marks and acne scars.

Combination of SkinPen® micro-needling treatment with other treatment types is recommended to yield best results. Talk to our cosmetic physician for your customised treatment plan.

Prep your skin 2 weeks prior to your treatment with active serums such as Vitamin A and Vitamin C.

Maintain regular use of sun protection (e.g. 50+ SPF sunscreen, hats, umbrellas) and avoid sun exposure for at least 2 weeks prior.

Please advise our cosmetic physician if you are on any medications, have any skin or medical conditions.

This is a minimally invasive procedure that is safe, short and suitable for all skin types.

During your consultation before your first treatment, our cosmetic physician will assess your suitability for SkinPen® and discuss any concerns or questions you may have.

Before the procedure, an anaesthetic agent will be applied to areas to be treated for at least 30 minutes to minimise any discomfort throughout the procedure.Then our cosmetic physician will make small punctures to the outerrmost layers of your skin using the SkinPen®.

No downtime with minimal pain (numbing cream will be applied). Treatment takes about an hour (30 minutes anaesthetic agent application + 30 minutes micro-needling procedure).

Moderate redness and swelling are expected 24 to 48 hours after procedure. Bruising and swelling for 2 to 4 days after procedure. Flaking, peeling and crusting 3 to 5 days after treatment. Recovery time may vary from 3 to 7 days, depending on the extent of the procedure and individual.

Most patients can expect to see modest results after several micro-needling treatments. 

Our cosmetic physician will assess suitability to undergo this treatment. Please book in for an initial consult and our cosmetic physician will address your concerns.
