With superior skin treatment devices like Dermapen and deeply nourishing skincare, feel confident in your skin.

Skin needling is a popular cosmetic treatment that has been used for many years to improve the appearance of the skin. Here at our clinic on the Gold Coast, we use Dermapen 4 for our skin needling, a revolutionary tool that has made skin needling more comfortable and effective.

What is skin needling?

Skin needling, also known as microneedling or collagen induction therapy, is a cosmetic procedure that involves using tiny needles to puncture the skin. The purpose of skin needling is to create small micro-channels in the skin, which stimulate the body’s natural healing response. This response results in the production of collagen and elastin, two essential proteins that are responsible for maintaining the skin’s firmness and elasticity.

How does skin needling work?

During a skin needling treatment, a device with tiny needles is used to create micro-channels in the skin. These micro-channels stimulate the body’s natural healing response, which results in the production of collagen and elastin. The production of collagen and elastin helps to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and other skin imperfections.

Benefits of skin needling treatments

  • Evens skin tones for those with dyspigmentation and melasma
  • Tightens sagging skin
  • Reduces fine lines
  • Scar reduction for hypertrophic scars, acne scars or burns
  • Reduce enlarged pores
  • Minimally Invasive
  • Assists the fading of stretch marks

Skin Needling FAQs

Ideal candidates for dermapen treatments

Skin needling (or Dermapen) is suitable for a wide range of skin types and tones. If you have concerns about your skin’s appearance and are looking for a solution that can improve and rectify most common ailments, Skin needling is an excellent treatment option. Commonly administered to the following areas:


Soften smoker lines and smooth out dimpled skin.


Ideal for wrinkles around the eye area caused by our daily expressions.


Generalised treatment to the entire face, encouraging collagen and elastin production helping to restore and tighten skin. Uneven skin tone and pigmentation are also improved.


Sagging skin under the chin and on the neck can be treated with Dermapen. It will help to tighten and lift skin as well as reducing the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles.

Stretch Marks and Scarred areas

If you have severe scarring or stretch marks, their appearance can be blended out with microneedling. This process can also have a positive impact on the texture of these types of scar tissue as well.

During the treatment

Depending on the size of the area you are having treated, skin needling can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour to complete. We may apply a numbing cream prior to the procedure for your comfort, if requested.

A Dermapen4 is then gently moved over the skin’s surface creating micro-wounds, or ‘channels’ in the surface layers of the skin. The treatment process itself is well-received by clients and is only mildly uncomfortable.

For 24-72 hours after the treatment, you may experience redness and swelling of the treatment site as well as scaliness and/or peeling of the skin. Effects of the treatment can be seen and noticed anywhere from 2 weeks after the procedure to 6 months. Burns and traumatic scarring will take the longest to show improvements.

It is recommended to repeat treatments 4-8 weeks apart for best results.

Recommended treatments to pair with micro-needling

LED Facials

This technique calls on the skin-revitalising properties of LED, which help complexions to look their best. The light waves are directed at the facial area as clients lie back and relax. When paired with micro-needling, it can aid skin repair by energising cells to produce collagen and elastin more rapidly.

Collagen Stimulating Serums

It’s all in the name and while their use is recommended in general, it can be additionally beneficial after a micro-needling treatment as the skin has been prepped with micro-channels for the optimal absorption and action of these revitalising serums.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP Treatments)

Although this is a unique service, it is also a micro-needling service at its core. The major difference here is that throughout the treatment, a sample of your own blood plasma is administered to the treatment area containing a high concentration of platelets. Platelets have been shown to increase skin repair rates as well as rejuvenate skin tightness and texture when administered in high concentrations through PRP treatments.
