“Skin Needling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a specialised regenerating treatment that safely penetrates the deeper layers of skin, aiding in repair and rejuvenation.”
Based on acupuncture, and using multiple needles that differ in size, Skin Needling kick starts the body’s natural wound healing response underneath the skins layers. This results in the production and distribution of new collagen to help strengthen, thicken and smooth your skin. The procedure has been performed for many years and has been proven to treat several skin conditions and problems including smoothing wrinkles and lines and improving skin texture, scarring, and stretch marks. The face is a common area for Skin Needling treatment; however, other areas of the body such as the hands, neck, back and chest can be treated just as successfully, with great results.
“The treatment creates tiny punctures in the skin that encourage the production of new collagen. The dermal stimulation is created without damaging the outer layer, maximising the outward appearance of the skin and speeding up the healing process at a much faster rate than other procedures.”
Skin Needling is a safe, tested and reliable procedure that involves creating rejuvenating microscopic punctures in the skin using a specialised device. We use either a Roller, Fractional Pen or Dermapen device depending on the skin condition and the area being treated. The process involves multiple needles in various sizes acting together in the specific area of the treated condition.
The treatment creates tiny punctures in the skin that encourage the production of new collagen, known as collagen induction, and will progressively work to fill in the scar, stretch mark, or wrinkles being treated, making them less noticeable and in some cases removing them altogether. Each patient’s situation is different, and results can vary.
Other skin rejuvenating techniques utilise methods that can often remove the healthy top layer of skin. Skin Needling creates dermal stimulation without damaging the outer layer, maximising the outward appearance of the area and speeding up the healing process at a much faster rate than other procedures.
The procedure is proven to offer many benefits and avoids some of the usual skin care related worries that other procedures can possess, such as the risk of permanent structural damage, increased sun sensitivity, skin colour loss and hyper pigmentation. However, there’s nothing like seeing the results to illustrate the effectiveness of this treatment – look at our Skin Needling before and after pictures below to see what great results it can produce.
“Skin Needling will improve skin tone and texture with visible results appearing within 3-8 weeks. Every skin condition repairs a tailored treatment plan. Consult with us to formulate the best plan of action for your skin.”
Visible Skin Needling results will usually require multiple sessions. Improvement in skin tone and texture will start to show within 6-8 weeks and will continue to improve drastically in the following months, depending on what condition has been treated. After a series of procedures, a significant improvement will be noticeable, including smoother skin, improved skin tone, reduction of scars and pitting, improved texture of stretch marks, and a reduction in fine lines.
Australian Laser & Skin Clinics recommend between 3-8 treatments as a general guideline, however, certain deeper skin conditions may require additional sessions. Consult with us to formulate the best plan of action.
“The procedure is ideal for treating a variety of skin concerns including: scarring, acne scarring, wrinkles, loss of skin elasticity and plumpness, uneven tone, pigmentation, hypopigmentation (vitiligo).”
The face is the most common area for skin treatments, but other areas of the body can enjoy great Skin Needling results just as effectively, including the hands, neck, back and chest. This also makes it an excellent treatment for Stretch Marks or Scarring from operations or injury on the body. The treatment is suitable for any skin type and colour, it’s perfect for people looking to improve skin texture and tightness.
Before commencing, your therapist or registered nurse will assist in applying a topical anaesthetic cream to the area being treated. The cream is applied approximately 30 minutes to 1 hour beforehand. This will minimise skin sensitivity throughout the procedure, and the only sensation you should feel is some light pressure during the Skin Needling process. Are there any side effects? Post-treatment, you will experience mild to moderate redness, swelling and sensitivity that can last between 12-48 hours. Some clients have experienced light bruising that can last for roughly 2-3 days, however this is normal due to the increased pressure applied. After a few days, the area will start to feel dry and tight, which may feel a little rough to touch. Once the dryness has reduced your skin will appear fresh and radiant and the effects of collagen formation will continue for up to 12 weeks.

Seven years struggling with acne did not only make my skin look terrible but impacted my confidence. The pain I’ve been through was not just skin deep. I was not confident to be photographed and felt depressed when I looked in the mirror. I tried a lot of treatments to cure my acne, but none of them worked.
A week after I started getting Microdermabrasions and then eventually started Skin Needling treatments. I now have minimal scarring, my skin looks cleaner and brighter and most important my confidence is back. Thank you to the South Yarra Clinic for all your help.
I suffer from hormonal acne and the scarring that comes with it. Australian Laser & Skin Clinics has helped me over come this, I feel more confident and beautiful in my skin. I have never been happier!
