Skin Needling

Skin Needling with Medical Grade Dermastamp

This facial treatment also known as skin needling is very popular in the UK and is now proving very popular in Melbourne. Tiny needles are applied over the face with the Dermapen/Dermastamp to stimulate the production of new skin cells and proteins. These very fine micro needles puncture through the dermal and epidermal layers of the skin temporarily wounding the skin causing a stimulation in growth factors generating an increase in skin cells and dermal proteins. The skin becomes thicker with improved tone. The treatment also improve the ability for the skin to absorb products applied to the skin. We recommend 3 treatments for the best results 4-6 weeks apart in our St Kilda clinic.
