Skin Needling in Darwin
In today’s cosmetic world, there are many treatments available that can make the skin look fresher and more youthful, and skin needling is one of them. More and more people who desire an alternative to surgery or dermabrasion are turning to skin needling for its low risk of side effects, quickness of treatment, and pleasing results.
Skin needling, also known as collagen induction therapy or dermal rolling, is the use of fine needles to activate the coagulation cascade. Through this response, the body regenerates collagen, thereby remodelling the skin’s elasticity, tone, and texture. During treatment, fine channels are created in the dermis, and these become infused with vitamin-rich serums to create softer, more youthful-looking skin.
The clinically proven results of skin needling include the reshaping and reconstructing of the skin’s natural collagen fibres. This is essential in reducing the appearance of fine lines and scarring.
Areas Commonly Treated
Skin needling is effective for a number of areas of the body, including the face, neck, and décolletage. In addition, it can improve the appearance of several specific skin problems, such as scarring from acne, large pore size, and hormonal pigmentation.
The Treatment Process
During your initial consultation, we’ll discuss your medical history, problem areas, and expectations and devise a treatment plan tailored to your individual concerns. You may choose to go ahead with treatment on the same day as your consultation or you may schedule your treatment at a future time.
When you begin your treatment, we’ll apply a topical anaesthetic for maximum comfort. The anaesthetic takes 30 minutes to take effect, and the treatment itself takes another 15 minutes.
Immediately following treatment, you will experience redness of the treatment area which resolves within approximately 24 hours. The potential also exists for minimal bruising, but this is rare. Skin needling is tolerated well by all skin types and requires minimal downtime.
The cost of your skin needling treatment depends on several factors, which we will discuss with you at your consultation. Our skin needling treatment for the face is priced at $350, with the option to add on an extra area (such as the neck or décolletage) for and additional $100. For all other prices, please see our clinic brochure.
