Skin Needling, Skin Pen & Dermapen®

Skin needling is available here at the practice of our plastic surgeon, Dr Craig Layt, and is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment that helps restore collagen and elastin through a natural healing process. Ultra-fine, medical quality needles create multiple skin punctures that induce a wound healing response that stimulates new collagen and elastin production. New collagen and elastin improve skin quality and texture, making the skin feel firmer and smoother and help repair fine wrinkles and acne scars. Skin needling also helps repair stretch marks and surgical scars.

Skin Needling involves minimal downtime and is therefore the perfect alternative for those who don’t have time for more intensive laser treatments.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

How does Skin Needling work?

Each of the thousands of tiny puncture wounds induces the release of growth factors that begin the process of wound healing. These factors stimulate new collagen and elastin growth in the surrounding skin. New collagen and elastin production is the goal of all skin resurfacing and rejuvenation treatments.

New collagen production can continue for up to 12 months, resulting in an improvement in skin firmness and texture and a softening and lifting of scars and wrinkles.
