Overview of Medical Skin Needling

Medical skin needling is a skin rejuvenation treatment designed to improve the appearance of fine facial lines, skin tone and texture, enlarged pores and superficial scars. The treatment uses state-of-the-art electronic skin needling device with tiny needles oscillating back and forth at high speed to create tiny puncture wounds in the skin.

This process stimulates the natural collagen production by generating a wound healing response in the treated skin. Skin needling works best when combined with other skin rejuvenation procedures such as PRP. We offer this procedure at our Perth clinics as well Alice Springs.

We are not a Medical Beauty Clinic , We are a Cosmetic Medical Clinic or Cosmetic Surgery Clinic.

Before and After Pictures

Frequently Asked Questions

For new microneedling clients, we typically suggest a series of treatments that are spaced six to eight weeks apart. After that, we will advise on how often you’ll require maintenance treatments.

We recommend not washing the face for at least few hours after your treatment. Gentle cleanser or just water should be used if you have to wash your face during the recovery phase. We will advise you on the best products to use on your face post-treatment. Please avoid products that contain AHAs or Retinol (Vitamin A).

Skin Needling Prices start from $300 for full face.

Medical skin needling improves:
  • Premature skin ageing
  • Enlarged Pores
  • Skin laxity
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne Scars
  • Chickenpox scars
  • Scars following injuries or surgery trauma

At Medaesthetics®, the procedure is performed using a specialized skin needling device called M-Derm™. A topical anaesthetic is usually applied before treatment to minimise any discomfort. Your treatment can take anywhere between 10 minutes to half an hour, depending on the area you are having treated

Medical skin needling is generally safe to use on all skin types and all skin colours. There are very few adverse reactions associated with this procedure, which includes prolonged redness and delayed healing in very few cases.

There are virtually no serious side effects. Some patients prone to acne have reported mild and transient breakout episodes post this procedure. Post Inflammatory Hyper-pigmentation (PIH) is an extremely rare and temporary complication.

Provided the procedure is done under strict aseptic conditions in a medical clinic, post-operative infections are very unlikely.

It is important for anyone undergoing a skin needling treatment at a beauty salon (or any non-medical environment) to understand that the penetration of needles into the skin should not be deep enough to cause any bleeding or oozing of blood.

The inflammatory reaction of the skin is extremely short and fades significantly within hours from redness to a pinkish hue that may last for 12 to 24 hours on average. In order to reduce visible redness, we recommend healing minerals, peptides or hyaluronic acid after the procedure, and to protect the skin with medical strength sunblock. We also recommend the use of medical grade makeup to help with the healing.

Like most other medical strength skin treatments, it is important to ensure the right healing environment for two to three days post-treatment. Please do not use:
  • AHAs (glycolic acid) or any other skin exfoliation procedure
  • Retinol (Vitamin A cream)
  • Direct sun exposure should also be avoided

It is extremely important to provide all essential nutrients to the skin post a skin needling procedure. This involves a gentle cleanser, topical antioxidants like Vitamin B and C serums, hyaluronic acid-based moisturisers and micronized zinc/titanium sunblocks. We have a range of medical grade skin care products that we recommend our patients use after their treatment. We find that medical makeup like Oxygenetics® is excellent in hiding the redness and promoting healing.

Only trained medical practitioners should carry out medical grade skin needling. Often, it is confusing for clients to distinguish the difference between medical strength and non-medical skin needling. The difference is in needle size. Medical devices have longer needles used to reach deeper skin layers. The needles of the non-medical devices are very short, not more than 0.2– 0.5 mm. Therefore, they are good for superficial skin rejuvenation only.

The home care derma-roller is not a replacement for medical grade skin needling in clinic treatments, but it helps to maintain beautiful skin when used regularly at home. It maximises skincare product penetration through the skin barrier (stratum corneum) and improves the skin’s tone and texture by stimulating epidermal cell proliferation.

  • Improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of wrinkles
  • Stimulates tissue regeneration
  • Dramatically improves disfiguring scars, especially acne scars, as new collagen fibres elevate the depressed scar tissue
  • Improves blood supply into the previous scar tissue harmonising pigmentation with the periphery skin
  • Reduces pore size
  • Improves the appearance of stretch marks.

This is assessed during the consultation with the treating doctor in our Perth clinic. A treatment is mapped out for each client and the cost can be assessed at this time. This is based on a client's unique requirements and the result that is desired. Skin needling may be combined with other treatments as a package and the overall cost will be discussed at consultation.
