Skin Needling Experience

May 04, 2018 By Southpoint Tuggeranong

With the weather cooling down, it's a great time of year to prepare your skin for winter. Skin needling, available at Laser Clinics Tuggeranong, is a great treatment that can stimulate the production of your collagen to then create smoother, healthier skin. Whilst it sounds a little scary and invasive (it really isn't), it's a great way to reduce acne scarring, stretch marks, fine lines, pigmentation, enlarged pores, blackheads and other scarring. Laser Clinics Australia is a brand that has carved a unique niche in the cosmetic treatment industry, and with over 88 clinics around Australia, their hard-working team is dedicated to offering affordable, accessible and reliable cosmetic treatments. We were recently invited to experience this skin needling treatment with Laser Clinics Tuggeranong, where we learnt all about the treatment, what it's good for and how amazing the results can be. What is skin needling? Skin needling can go by various names in the cosmetic industry, and simply involves the use of a manually applied skin needling device that is applied directly to the skin in a crisscross motion. In this instance I received the skin needling treatment on my face, so had the needle applied to my forehead, cheeks, chin and nose/mouth area. The objective of this procedure is to stimulate or puncture the skin to stimulate collagen and promote scar reduction on the skin through the skins natural wound healing process. What to expect As scary as it may seem at first, overall the experience is quite pleasant with only a slight amount of discomfort involved. Before the treatment, the skin is cleansed and prepped for using the Laser Clinics Australia Skinstitut products. From here, a facial numbing cream is then applied to the entire face, which aids in preventing pain and discomfort throughout the procedure. After 20 minutes of letting the numbing cream set in, the skin needling process begins across each section of the face. Whilst the process isn't painful, it definitely feels a little different and was uncomfortable at times.Throughout the entire process the Laser Clinics therapist is guiding you and talks thorough every step so that you feel at ease and comfortable throughout the entire procedure. Once the skin needling is complete, the skin is then hydrated with Yellow LED Light Therapy which helps speed up the skin recovery to maximise the benefits from the treatment. What are the benefits? Skin needling benefits also include stimulation of organic collagen renewal that is also perfect for people that cannot undertake laser therapy treatments for skin conditions such as acne scarring. As well as reducing acne scarring, stretch marks, fine lines, pigmentation, enlarged pores, blackheads and other scarring, skin needling can also make your skin and beauty products work better by improving product absorption, and you will then reap benefits from the products you already use. Overall, the skin needling treatment at Laser Clinics Australia was a fantastic experience. Whilst the results aren't instant (they begin to show one to two weeks post treatment) I can already feel that my skin is smoother, and is starting the healing process already.
