Know before you go

  • The gentle nature of the treatment makes it suitable for use on the face, neck and body.
  • Micro-needling facials can be carried out in the comfort of your home if you buy yourself the handy roller and use it as part of your everyday beauty regime – you just might want to try it at a clinic first.
  • For the best results, it’s recommended you go for follow-up treatments over a period of three months, as skin naturally renews itself every 40 days.

The sciencey stuff

The needle know-how is this: a derma roller contains hundreds of tiny needles which create controlled injuries on the skin which, in turn, kickstarts its natural healing defences. The result? Plumper and tighter skin. As well as the skin’s magical do it yourself-style collagen production, the tiny punctures mean that all of your lotions and potions (including eye creams and the like) will be way more effective as they can be absorbed quicker. Win!
