Many of us would like to improve our skin in some way. Whether you are worried about scars, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, sagging skin, or lines and wrinkles, micro needling can help.

All of these issues are caused in part by a loss of collagen in the skin. Micro needling works by stimulating the body’s own collagen production process, which over time repairs and renews the skin.

Micro needling also allows our skin care products to penetrate much more deeply into the skin, which massively boots their effectiveness. The best thing about using micro needling is that the process is entirely natural, with almost no ‘down-time’ and no known side effects.

Many copycat devices are also available for sale on Internet sites, mostly auction sites or less reputable online pharmacy sites from abroad. Often these include the sale of medical grade rollers which should not be used by the home user due to the potential for harm and the risk of infection if the proper aseptic precautions are not followed.

We would recommend that consumers visit a clinic for more aggressive medical skin needling treatments and for appropriate home care programmes.


Micro needling is effectively used for;

– Reducing scars caused by acne, surgery or thermal burns

– Fading stretch marks

– Reducing fine lines and deep wrinkles

– Tightening sagging skin

– Dyspigmentation eg. In melasma
