Common Queries Regarding This Procedure

How does it work?

Microneedling works by producing up to 1 million microscopic needle columns in the dermis of the skin.
These stimulate the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely.

How long does it last?

Because the skin is always renewing itself, it is impossible to say how long the effects of the peel last. Good tailored homecare products will certainly enhance the duration of results.

These peels can be carried out every 2-4 weeks, with a course lasting 4-8 treatments.

For whom is it not suitable?

It may not be suitable for vascular types.

Can it be combined with other treatments?

Yes – it enhances aesthetic injectable treatments. Stimulated skin improves the quality of the skin, thus improving the ‘canvas' for injectable treatments to be more effective.

What type of reaction should I expect?

Immediately after the treatment it will look like you've got moderate sunburn and your skin may feel tighter than usual.



The skin can be pink and red in appearance for a couple of hours following Microneedling treatment, much like sunburn, with some minor bleeding and bruising possible. The skin may also feel warm, tight and itchy for a short while.

This should normally resolve in 24-72 hours.
