However, that is at the later parts of our lives and even before that, we are already dealing with other issues. Since our teenage years, we experience acne and later on acne scarring.
For all of these we may cream and other medications that can supposedly help us. However when those aren’t enough what do we do? Well, the answer is right in your face as here in Melbourne, we are offering a new collagen induction therapy that is sure to help treat whatever issues you are dealing with.

Skin Needling Treatment by SKIN CLUB Cosmetic Doctors
Skin Needling is a type of cosmetic injection that causes the body’s natural anti-inflammatory processes to be more active. Through the use of skin needling, doctors can create a series of controlled micro-injuries that will activate the body’s natural healing process.
Doing so stimulates the production of new collagen proteins all across the area which is essential in skin rejuvenation and natural wound healing response.
Studies show that Skin Needling can effectively reduce the appearance of fine lines, rough texture, and overall aging, reduce overall swelling and improve overall skin texture.
Skin needling treatments are a fantastic way to heal scars, stretch marks, and any other skin conditions that affect our skin. With the help of modern technology, they use micro-needles to create a situation for our body to release collagen and elastin. All of this is now done in a safe and controlled manner, so it can be done anywhere, at any time.
One of the biggest issues you deal with as a teenager is the breakout of acne and pimples all over your face. However, while this does go away in time, they can leave nasty reminders. All over your face, little bumps and craters are the results of acne scarring, and like all scars, these can be potentially lifelong.
However, thanks to skin needling treatment, not even acne scarring is safe from micro-needling anymore. This procedure promises to fill up the face of their clients including their scars.
Although a little bit of sun can be a great way to get some vitamin D, too much sun is a serious risk. Your skin may experience sun damage and pigmentation issues leaving you with a very noticeable skin condition. However, with micro-needling and the active ingredients that go with it such as collagen and elastin, you can help reduce the effects of pigmentation.
One of the most sure-fire signs of aging that we all encounter is the appearance of wrinkles on our faces. While they may seem permanent for some people, you do not have to deal with them if you don’t want to.
This is a result of less of a mistake on your part but a slow down in your skin being unable to keep up with the production of active ingredients that keep your skin elastic and tight. As a result, there are many skin treatments made to reduce wrinkles including needling skin.
Although not on the face, stretch marks are still a big issue that many women, especially mothers have to deal with. These come from the tissue tearing in the dermis, usually as a result of childbirth, and result in stretch marks all across your stomach.
They are not limited to that though as they can also come from other sudden changes in weight and height, letting them appear in your thighs and arms as well. However, like most marks on your skin, these can be treated with proper micro-needling.
With needling on your skin, these treatments can make for a tighter skin tone, letting your skin needling fix the issue by releasing proteins across the affected area.
Another area where micro-needling can help is with treating enlarged pores. These can be a result of our pores getting clogged with dirt and debris. While this is not necessarily harmful, it can still be an issue as this results in a higher risk for acne and inflammation.
To deal with them, needling skin has become a popular method in getting rid of them due to the lack of side effects from the procedure. This gets the skin’s natural response to injuries going and skin rejuvenation going to tighten the area and clear up the debris.
After learning all of this, these treatments can sound similar to another common treatment here at Skin Club, Dermal Fillers. That is because both are cosmetic procedures that focus on improving collagen production and making use of needling skin to get the job done. Generally, most clinics also offer both of these treatments to deal with scarring. Many treatments do the same thing but there is a difference between the two.
For one dermal filler make use of regular needles while skin needling makes use of micro-needles. The other is that with microneedling, the goal of the procedure is to cause small injuries that force the body to react like a natural process. On the other hand with dermal fillers, the purpose is just to inject chemicals that get the production of collagen and elastin going.
If you decide to go through with skin needling, you should get in touch with your clinic to get a consultation. During these sessions, a doctor will begin by assessing the skin of their patient. They do this by checking skin types, pigmentation, and other skin conditions. This will determine if your skin’s health is right for this treatment.
As part of your pre-treatment consultation, they will also hear out your skin concerns and what you are expecting from the treatments. If they find that you are a good candidate for skin needling, they will contact you with a schedule to visit their clinics for treatment.
After your consultation, you can now begin the treatment itself. The areas doctors identify are treated by having a device that injects multiple mico needles into your skin. These can go through the layers of your skin and make multiple tiny injuries. Do not worry about the pain though as before skin needling, your doctor will provide a topical anaesthetic so you will not feel a thing.
These injuries are controlled and are meant to get a reaction from your skin. In this case, they want your skin to respond by producing natural proteins such as collagen and elastin. Although your skin uses them as part of the healing process, they also serve the secondary purpose of maintaining skin elasticity and tightness. As you get older, your skin begins to slow down in its production which is why your appearance looks more sunken as time goes on.
This allows it to treat issues in your skin such as scarring, pigmentation, and texture. With collagen, it can help balance out the color and volume of your skin.
In each session, micro skin needling lasts only 20-30 minutes at most instead of the long hours of other treatments. this is another easy why this treatment is so popular because you do not need to spend the whole day preparing for it. However, the downside here is that you will require multiple treatments for it.
This is because your skin is only trying to heal an injury and once it is healed, it will slow down its production of collagen once again. This means to make real progress on your skin health, you will need multiple sessions to keep it producing.
For many people, it usually takes around 4-6 sessions to complete this treatment, amounting to 3 hours at most for the process. However, skin micro-needling needs to be spaced out to give your skin a chance to adjust to the changes. Normally you will need to wait somewhere around 4-6 weeks per skin micro-needling session to make the most of it. This amounts to around 6 months of this treatment, something you can plan out when you meet up for a consultation.
After the skin needling, it will be some time before you get to see the full results of your treatment. While the skin needling stimulates the healing process, the results from the procedure are not immediately visible. You will have to wait at least a month to a month and a half before you see results.
In that time, your doctors suggest keeping an eye out for side effects from skin needling. However, this should not be a major issue as skin needling is one of the safest treatments offered in Melbourne clinics. Due to the nature of the treatment, there are few risks if performed properly. Most of those include things like pain, swelling, and redness, all common issues from needles. After skin needling, your doctor can provide some advice on how to help your skin heal and cope with the side effects.
If you encounter something serious such as a hard time moving muscles or a blood clot from skin needling, be sure to contact your clinics right away as this can be a result of accidentally injecting a blood vessel or vein when injecting skin layers.
After the skin needling results come into full effect, you can now visit your doctor for a follow-up consultation to discuss the results. Here you can talk about anything you wish to change or further improve, ensuring you can maximize the benefits. They will also explain if you need any follow-up treatments to maintain it.
