Fractional Needling

What is Fractional Needling?

Fractional Needling is an advanced skin perfecting treatment that delivers the highest calibre collagen induction therapy to improve skin texture, smooth wrinkles and fine lines while softening scars. This unique process combines micro needling with Mesotherapy (the introduction of various vitamins and complex ingredients to the dermis).

Fractional Needling is an exciting natural treatment that dramatically increases the quantity, bioavailability and access of topical treatments and further enhances their absorption for cellular nutrition. Whilst we are not directly injecting products into the skin, this minimally invasive process creates micro channels to the dermis for the enhanced delivery of actives where they will have a cell regulating function, thereby improving skin appearance, texture and tone.

  • Chemical free treatment for all skin types

How does it work?

Fractional Needling is a non-invasive treatment delivered via the Wireless Tri-M micro needling device. The device uses medical grade stainless steel needles that vertically pierce the skin, essentially working down to the dermis, leaving the outer layer of skin, the epidermis, intact. The electronic device uses a powerful motor allowing the needles to move quickly in and out of the skin. This creates micro channels in the skin, stimulating the body’s natural collagen production while also dramatically increasing the bioavailability of topical treatments and further enhancing their absorption.

How many treatments will I need?

For optimal results, a course of treatments is required from our laser clinics, ranging from 4-8 sessions* depending on the area being targeted. Treatments are recommended to be performed at 6-8 week intervals. Upon consultation, your therapist will discuss the appropriate number of treatments and the suitable frequency to deliver the best results.

How will I look after treatment?

Fractional Needling utilises the high quality and safe device, Wireless Tri-M to ensure a speedy recovery with minimal downtime.

Immediately following in-clinic treatments, the skin may appear temporarily reddened, similar to that of a mild to light sunburn. Whilst some clients have reported that the skin remains red and slightly swollen for 2-4 days, there will be no scabbing or lesions present.

The use of our Needling Aftercare pack will assist with the healing and regenerating process following your treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does it hurt? 

A numbing cream can be applied to avoid any discomfort when receiving a Fractional Needling treatment. Clients can resume normal activities almost immediately, but may experience some minor redness for a day or two.

Who is it for? 

For any person experiencing skin conditions such as: ageing; pigmentation; scarring; acne; enlarged pores or stretch marks.

What results can I see?

Results may be seen even after one treatment*. Patients report a firmer, even-toned, more revitalised skin with a visible decrease in the appearance of wrinkles, pigmentation, sun damage, acne, enlarged pores and scarring.

When will I see results? 

The first week after the treatment you may get some skin peeling which helps lighten pigmentation or scarring and the skin will look more hydrated. Most clients report a gradual improvement in their skin colour and texture over a 6-8 week period*. The improvement is compounded as each consecutive treatment is performed. Homecare is very important to the overall result and commitment to rebooking treatments to see best results.

When is skin needling not suitable?

  • Within 2 weeks of a Dermal Filler or Anti-Wrinkle Injection treatment
  • Over raised moles, warts or lesions
  • During pregnancy (permitted while breastfeeding)
  • Some medications (advise your therapist of anything you may be taking)
  • Active herpes or acne (once resolved the treatment can go ahead after 2 weeks)

What are the side effects of a skin needling procedure? 

Skin needling has been performed worldwide without any recorded incidents. Side effects are minimal, including mild swelling, mild bruising and peeling.
