Frequently Asked Questions

About Microneedling – Skin Pen

  • How does microneedling work?

    Microneedling uses tiny needles to create numerous controlled microscopic wounds in the skin, triggering the body’s repair and rejuvenation processes and resulting in the vastly increased production of collagen and elastin – crucial elements that keep skin supple and firm, the levels of which drop off as we age. Microneedling results in a flood of healing energy, repairing and restoring the skin from within.

  • What is so special about the SkinPen®?

    SkinPen® is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device, earning a fantastic reputation for safe and effective treatment due to its design, construction, and performance. SkinPen® is a high-quality device that can be trusted, with numerous features including:

    • Patented disposable cartridge with its in-built reciprocating device for precise calibration.
    • Fourteen stainless steel, surgical-grade needles, validated for sharpness, durability, and penetration depth – no blunt, uneven lengths or hooked needles.
    • Exhaust ports and a scalloped edge to prevent suction and bruising.
    • Internal reciprocating mechanism. Unlike unreliable spring-reciprocating mechanisms used in other devices, SkinPen®’s reciprocating mechanism allows for complete and consistent insertion and retraction of the needles on every rotation.
    • Validated as safe for use at the specified penetration depth deemed safe for patients.
    • Ingress protection, minimizing back-flow and risk of cross-contamination.
    • Validated single-use lock-out feature – no penetration of fluids such as blood or serum.
  • What happens during microneedling treatment?

    We apply a topical anaesthetic to numb the skin prior to treatment, We then cleanse your skin and wipe it over with a antimicrobial solution, after which we begin to microneedle your skin, giving extra attention to the issues you want to treat.

  • Does microneedling hurt?

    Microneedling is only minimally invasive, and we ensure that treatment discomfort is kept to a minimum by applying a topical numbing cream to the skin prior to treatment. The needles are incredibly fine and oscillate at such high speed, the sensation is barely detectable.

  • What is recovery like?

    Many clients take 24 hours or so for downtime after treatment is complete, as microneedling creates temporary redness in the treated areas which can remain for a few hours to a couple of days. Clients with particularly sensitive skin might choose to book an appointment prior to the weekend to gain extra recovery time at home. We will also provide you with a post treatment recovery cream to take home with you.

    “Megan was kind and informative from the moment I first messaged her.  She quickly put my mind at ease at my consultation and I was excited to have my first treatment.  I found Megan to be knowledgeable, trustworthy and really friendly.  I can’t wait to return for further treatments.”
