Our team of skin specialists at The Beauté Collective have been in the business for a long time. We are passionate about skincare and love answering all of your questions about anything related to the visage! Today we are chatting about the many questions our clients have about skin needling on the face.
What is micro-needling/skin needling?
Skin needling is a process that uses the procedures of using a state of the art device with microscopic needles to penetrate the skin. Tiny cuts or punctures are made in this skin within the dermis and epidermis layers. This process rejuvenates the skin by promoting collagen and skin cell recovery. This will encourage a natural healing response from the skin, creating a more youthful, vibrant look.
Benefits of skin needling
Skin needling is excellent for treating fine lines in the face, pigmentation problems, or uneven texture in the skin. Clients report their skin feeling tighter and more youthful in the few weeks after the process.
Is skin needling safe?
Yes, skin needling is very safe. Most skin types can easily tolerate the procedure, even many with sensitive skin. It is also viable for all skin tones, including darker skin, unlike a lot of skin treatments in Perth that are not as effective with darker pigment.
Can you have skin needling after fillers?
Your skin therapist will ask you if you have fillers or Botox in your face at least four weeks before the process. Skin needling can break the fillers down and potentially move it around. Make sure you have waited over a month before engaging in skin needling.
How long after skin needling do you see results?
Within the first week, you should see signs of tightness, and then over the next few weeks, you will start noticing a reduction in fine lines and hyper-pigmentation. Results vary from person to person, so chat to your therapist about how many sessions would be best for you.
Skin needling aftercare
Redness can sometimes be experienced for 2 – 3 days post-procedure, although most clients skin will not be red the following day. Do not apply regular makeup to the face for 24 hours after, Youngblood mineral makeup is safe to use straight after your procedure and can be purchased at The Beaute Collective. Use the recommended serums that your skin therapist will provide. After half a day, apply sunscreen when leaving the house and limit your time outside for the next month because the skin is at a higher risk of UV damage.
Does skin needling hurt?
The cartridge oscillates very quickly, so the process doesn’t take a long time, therefore any pain is minimal and short lived. Pain afterwards is uncommon; the only common effect is redness and may feel a little tingly and hot for a short time.
How much does skin needling cost?
Skin needling can cost from $200-$700 depending on the salon. Give The Beauté Collective a call today to see what price your desired treatment will cost.
How many skin needling sessions do I need?
You will see instant results after the first treatment although optimal results are achieved with a series of 3-6 treatments, with each treatment being about 4 to 6 weeks apart, depending on the recommendation of your therapist. Best results will be seen 12-18 months post initial treatment. Come in to our beauty salon in the Perth Hills for a consultation and we can discuss what will work best for you.
