What is Medik8 Skin Needling?

Skin Needling is the latest skin renewal technique to restore the healthy youthful appearance of your skin at a fraction of the cost and with minimal or zero downtime.
Skin Needling produces similar results to Dermabrasion, Lasers and Deep Chemical Peels, but is much less invasive and does not require the removal of the epidermis. As a result the healing time is significantly shorter and there is no post-treatment skin sensitivity to UV light. .
Skin Needling is also one of the few skin therapies that are suitable for treating all skin types, including ethnic skin, and which can be used to treat the fragile skin around the eyes, mouth and on the neck.

How does it work?

The concept of Skin Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy) is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, burns and other abrasions. Immediately after an injury occurs to the skin our body reuses the damaged collagen and elastin fibres as well as other damaged skin components to produce new ones. Skin Needling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self repair mechanism by creating micro-“injuries” in the skin which trigger new collagen synthesis, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin.

How is the treatment administered?

Medik8 Skin Needling procedures are performed in a very safe and precise manner with the use of single-use sterile Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller. The procedure is normally completed within 30-45 minutes.
Before the procedure commences a topical anaesthetic or local block will be applied to your skin to ensure your comfort and pain-less experience. After the skin is numbed, the practitioner will gently roll the Titanium Dermaroller over your skin to puncture the outermost layers of the skin and create minuscule sub-cutaneous injuries. These microscopic wounds stimulate new collagen deposition which may last for up to a year, yet they close within less than an hour.

How will I look immediately after the treatment?

After the procedure your skin will be red and flushed in appearance in a similar way as moderate sunburn.  You will also experience skin tightness and mild sensitivity to touch. This will diminish greatly after a few hours following treatments and within the next 48 hours your skin will be completely healed. After 5 days there is barely any evidence that the procedure has taken place.
The length of the downtime and recovery time depends on the microneedle size used for your treatment. You will be informed about your predicted post-treatment appearance during the consultation.

How quickly will I see results?

Visible signs of skin rejuvenation are seen after just 6-8 weeks following procedure and continue for up to a year.
A course of three Medik8 Skin Needling sessions, at 6-8 week intervals, is usually recommended to achieve optimum results; however you will notice great skin improvement after just one treatment.

How should I care for my skin after a treatment?

You can enhance your procedure results with the Personal Titanium Deramaroller model, which can be used on a daily basis in between your Medik8 Skin Needling sessions and afterwards. Additionally, topical application of Medik8 C-Tetra (vitamin C) and Retinol 3TR (vitamin A) will lead to a dramatic acceleration of regenerative processes and consolidation of procedure results.
