Dermal Needling is also known as Skin Needling or Dermapen. Dermal Needling is a procedure that utilises a tiny sterile microneedling head piece (non laser) that creates a controlled trauma, targeting the dermal layer of the skin to restore damaged collagen and stimulate new collagen. Dermal Needling is an accumulative result with the stimulation of new collagen continuing over 6 months up to 2 years after your initial course. This is suitable for fine lines and wrinkles, pore refinement, acne scars, postsurgical scars & stretch marks. If needed topical numbing compound may be applied 30 minutes prior to the treatment.
