Utilising the world’s most advanced and latest methods, we are able to enhance your results, ensure your safety and reduce downtime.
This minimally invasive treatment is our most effective treatment to improve skin texture, soften wrinkles and smoothen scars.
What is skin needling?
At The Skin Boutique, we use a device called the M-Derma for all of our Skin Needling treatments. It uses oscillating micro-needles to gently pierce the skin and stimulate the production of collagen and elastins.
As the micro-needles pierce the skin and reach the platelets in your blood, growth factors are released that rejuvenate your skin and restore a more youthful appearance. This regenerative procedure stimulates the body’s natural wound healing response without scarring.
Skin-Needling is one of the most effective and safest ways to improve many different skin conditions such as;
• Scarring (including acne scars) • Loose skin
• Fine lines and wrinkles • Enlarged pores
• Uneven texture • Dull complexion
The Environ Way

When will I see results?
The true result of your Skin Needling treatment will be apparent approximately 3 - 6 months post treatment as your skin regenerates and continues to produce new collagen and elastin. Most clients report an improvement in their skin texture and clarity within a 6 - 8 week period, this improvement is compounded after each consecutive needling treatment.
Does it hurt?
The micro-needles of the M-Derma can penetrate from 0.5mm to 2.0mm into the skin depending on the area being treated and your skin concerns. Bony areas on the forehead would use shallower penetration and scarring on the cheeks for example would use a longer needle.
A topical anaesthetic is used always applied to minimise any discomfort during treatment. Once applied, you shouldn’t feel much during your treatment other than a bit of pressure caused by your Specialist pushing the device down on your skin. In our experience, most clients are able to tolerate the treatment very well.The Environ LACM1 Peel also takes out a lot of the heat, redness and inflammation post treatment. An Alginate Mask may also be added on to the end of your treatment for additional healing and comfort.
How many treatments will I need?
A minimum of 6 treatments is generally required to achieve the optimum rejuvenation of an area. Recent research has resulted in a recommendation that Skin Needling treatments should be performed at 5-10 day intervals to achieve the best possible results.
When is skin needling treatment not suitable?
- Skin Needling cannot be performed over skin cancer or active acne.
- The treatment should not be performed within 2 weeks of having anti-wrinkle injections or dermal fillers.
- During pregnancy.
Appropriate skin preparation is essential to achieve optimum results from your Skin Needling treatment. Clinical trials have proven that results are increased by 40% in skin that has been adequately prepared with a systematic combination of Vitamins A & C for a minimum of 2 weeks prior to commencing needling treatments.
