Skin Needling

How Does Skin Needling Work?

Tiny needles perforate your skin and trigger your cells into regenerative mode, repairing the skin at a cellular level. By stimulating the natural production of your collagen skin needling rejuvenates the skin, smoothes fine lines, freshens and tightens the skin’s appearance, can reduce the presence of surgical scars, help with acne scarring, stretch marks and much more.

Skin needling takes advantage of the natural healing process of the body and boosts the thickness, colour, texture and consistency of the skin. It is generally suitable for all skin types and your practitioner is able to tailor the depth and rate of penetration in order to get the best results for you.

Injectables – do you know what you’re injecting into your face? September 12, 2018 - Cosmetic Injectables are offered in just about every beauty clinic, surgeon’s office and medispa around the country. Anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers are two of the most popular procedures for facial rejuvenation and anti-ageing and more and more people are giving them a go, many making them a part of their regular beauty routine. But do you know exactly what you’re getting injected into your face and body? What’s the difference between anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers and the other injectables on the market? One of the first things to wrap your head around is that there are different types of injectables that do different things, ie. anti-wrinkle injections are different to dermal fillers and so on. We wrote a great article on exactly this earlier this year and we suggest you read it to know exactly what the different types of cosmetic injectables are, how they work and what the benefits and risks of each are. However, something else to keep in mind is that there are different grades or types of each of these injectables, with different ingredients and quality of products. So you want to know what you’re paying for – those cheap injections could be just that […]
The Year of Skin Needling June 9, 2017 - Last year it was all about fat freezing, but 2017 is the year of skin needling. We’re calling it early, but everywhere we look there’s patients and practitioners raving about results from skin needling, otherwise known as dermal or micro needling. It’s said to provide better results than lasering but with less downtime, so this is a treatment we are excited about. Not all Skin Needling Is Equal Like all treatments, not all skin needling devices are equal, so it’s important your practitioner is using a quality device. The one we want to talk about today is MDerma from Klinic Solutions. The MDerma is different to other skin needling devices in that it’s design allows it to be used in sensitive areas that were previously not recommended for skin needling such as above and below the eyes, the lips and your nose. Practitioners are saying it’s easier to use than any other device on the market, patients are loving the minimal discomfort and downtime, and the MDerma patient before and after pictures speak for themselves. Some of Australia’s most respected Plastic Surgeons offer Factor 4 and the MDerma in their clinics. How Does Skin Needling Work? Tiny needles perforate your […]
Skin treatments at North Coast Medispa What Skin Treatments For Me? Fillers, Peels? IPL? Dr Gudmundsen from North Coast Medispa, gives us the lowdown. June 22, 2016 - Do you find yourself being confused with all the offerings and options out there for skin care, treatment and rejuvenation? Wonder what would be best for you? Dr Gudmundsen, Dermatologist, is the ONLY AHPRA approved skin specialist in the North Coast / Northern Rivers region. We caught up with him at North Coast Medispa for the lowdown. PSH: Do different treatments suit different skin types? Ie. are fillers suitable for all skin types, or can everyone have a chemical skin peel, or Intense Pulse Light or laser therapy? Additionally, Is there a danger of particular skin types reacting in an adverse way to any treatment? Dr G: Skin types are a good starting point for determining what treatments are suitable for an individual. Darker skin types are more prone to adverse reactions such as Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH) that is very difficult to treat once it occurs. There are many other factors that can influence the modalities chosen to address skin concerns safely and effectively. Genetics, underlying medical conditions or medications you’re taking may affect how your body reacts to the skin trauma from treatments. Lifestyle factors are also important, particularly sun exposure and your general health. At North Coast Medispa, we […]
Dermal Needling Dermal Needling January 19, 2015 - Dermal Needling – also known as dermarolling, collagen induction therapy, Dry Tattooing and Intradermabrasion. Dermal needling first started in the 1900’s and has been perfected to its sole purpose which is to diminish skin wrinkles and lines as well as acne scarring, acne depressions and pigmentation. The procedure uses numerous needles to penetrate the skin vertically in a criss cross motion. This piercing stimulates a natural healing response in the skin – this promotes the skin to produce more collagen cells, leaving the skin feeling and looking softer, tighter without the downtime affects of laser. Though you do need to bear in mind that dermal needling will leave the skin surface slightly red for a few days after the procedure. Although it sounds like this procedure would hurt with needles and all it doesn’t really at all. Some patients have said it just feels like a tiny prick but nothing too uncomfortable. Most practitioners will use a numbing cream and it only takes about 5 to 10 minutes per procedure. The most important thing to note when going through with this procedure is having a trained professional perform it. If you would like more of a run down on how […]
