What is skin needling?


Skin microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that uses tiny needles to treat acne scars, wrinkles, stretch marks and enlarged pores.


Also known as percutaneous collagen induction therapy, skin needling employs a hand-held, electrically powered device with tiny needles. These needles make controlled, microscopic punctures on the skin's surface.


The ‘micro-injuries’ induced by skin needling don't lead to scars. Instead, they stimulate the skin to naturally repair itself through a process called dermal remodelling. Skin needling enhances the body's collagen and elastin production, promoting skin regeneration and improved texture.


Skin needling stands out for its ability to revitalise the skin, delivering a smoother, more radiant glow. This technique can be performed on all skin types and requires minimal downtime.

As with all cosmetic treatments, the efficacy of skin needling depends on your skin type, concerns and overall treatment quality. That's why choosing a skilled practitioner is essential for safe and optimal results. 


At Aesthetics by Lucy, we carefully analyse your skin type and concerns to ensure a personalised and effective experience.


Who is skin needling for?


You might consider microneedling if you’re concerned about:


Acne marks

Fine lines and wrinkles

Stretch marks

Sun damage

Enlarged pores



What to expect before, during and after skin needling




During your initial consultation, we’ll discuss your skin concerns and health history.


If you’re a suitable candidate for the treatment, we’ll schedule a session. Be sure to follow our pre-treatment guidelines, which may include avoiding certain skincare products or medications.




The treatment area is cleaned and a numbing cream is applied to reduce discomfort. You might experience a slight tingling or pricking sensation as we create controlled micro-injuries on your skin.


A microneedling session can last from 30 minutes to a few hours, depending on the size of the treated area.




Expect some redness and swelling immediately after the procedure, which usually subsides within a day or two.


Minimise sun exposure and follow post-care instructions carefully. Depending on your specific treatment plan, you may have follow-up appointments to monitor progress and ensure long-term outcomes.


Benefits of skin needling


Boosts collagen production


Collagen is a structural protein that keeps your skin strong and resilient. Ageing reduces collagen, leading to wrinkles. Skin needling addresses this by stimulating the production of fresh collagen, promoting a younger-looking complexion.


Improves skin tone


Skin needling breaks up hyperpigmentation, promoting even skin tone through enhanced cell turnover.


A holistic approach


Whether you’re dealing with scarring or enlarged pores, skin needling is a safe and reliable all-around treatment.

  • What are cosmetic injections?
    Cosmetic injections are non-surgical, minimally invasive treatments that inject substances under the skin to enhance its appearance.

  • Are there different types of injectables?
    Yes, there are various types of injectables, including anti-wrinkle injections for muscle relaxation and dermal fillers for adding volume and definition. Book a consultation with us today to learn more about our treatments and what we can do to help you achieve your desired results.

    Yes, aftercare is essential to achieve the best possible results, and at Aesthetics by Lucy, we'll provide you with detailed post-treatment instructions. Most aftercare for cosmetic injectables may include avoiding strenuous activities 48 hours post-treatment, applying ice to reduce swelling and avoiding the topical application of harsh, active ingredients found in many skincare products.
  • Can cosmetic injectables be reversed?
    Some cosmetic injectables, like hyaluronic acid fillers, can be partially or fully reversed using specific enzymes. Before booking a treatment to reverse your cosmetic results, contact our skin clinic in St Leonards to discuss your options.
  • Can cosmetic injectables be combined with other treatments?
    Yes, cosmetic injectables can often be combined with other treatments, depending on your skin goals. Consult with us, and we'll create a personalised treatment plan that may include a combination of injectables and other aesthetic treatments to deliver your desired results.
