FAQs
Medical Micro Needling

How many medical micro-needling sessions will I need?

In general, we recommend a series of 3-4 treatments, tailored to your specific area of correction or concern. The exact treatment schedule will be determined by your skincare professional, aligning with your unique goals.

These treatments are typically spaced at 4-6 week intervals. For those with deep wrinkles, advanced sun damage, stretch marks, or scars, achieving the desired results may require up to 6 sessions. Your journey to radiant skin is our priority.

How does Mesotherapy (NCTF/ CLINICCARE) work?

Mesotherapy, in combination with collagen induction therapy (medical micro-needling), has been scientifically proven to provide remarkable results:

  • Stimulates new collagen synthesis, reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

  • Enhances skin tone, diminishing age spots and promoting an even pigmentation.

  • Softens skin texture, reducing roughness.

  • Boosts skin elasticity and texture, enhancing smoothness and tightness.

3

Will medical micro-needling hurt?

The majority of patients report minimal to no pain, a topical numbing agent can be applied on request, ensuring a more relaxed experience.

4

What will I look like after a skin needling treatment?

Following a skin needling treatment, anticipate the following:

  • Immediate skin stinging and redness, accompanied by a sensation of heat and tightness, which usually subsides within a couple of days.

  • Adhering to post-treatment care guidelines is vital, including sunscreen application and avoiding extreme temperatures and activities within the initial 48 hours.

5

How long will my results last?

Medical micro needling stimulates growth factors and collagen, promoting the emergence of new skin cells. As our skin ages, natural collagen production slows. Consistency in at-home skincare extends the longevity of your results. For enduring benefits, maintenance treatments are recommended.

6

Is medical micro-needling safe?

Medical micro-needling is generally safe but not recommended under the following conditions:

  • Active infection or unwell feeling near the treatment site.

  • History of abnormal scarring (e.g., keloid).

  • Poorly controlled medical conditions.

  • Allergic reactions to local aesthetics.

  • Bleeding disorders or autoimmune diseases.

  • Pregnancy or breastfeeding.

  • Use of steroids or medicines affecting bleeding (e.g., aspirin or warfarin).

  • Inform your clinician if you have a history of cold sores, as facial injections can trigger the virus.

7

Could I try micro-needling or derma roller at home?

While at-home skin needling is an option, it's important to recognise that home rollers have shorter needle lengths and may not yield the same benefits as professional micro-needling. Attempting micro-needling procedures at home poses health and safety risks, potentially leading to injury or infection. For safety and optimal results, it's advisable to leave this treatment to trained professionals.
