Will Skin Needling help with acne scarring and stretch marks?
Yes. Skin Needling promotes the production of collagen and it's this collagen production that builds the tissue within the stretch marks back up. The result is that the stretch mark and acne scarring indentation is reduced and so does the colour of these scars, in some cases making them disappear completely.
We treat all areas of the body including; the face, neck, back, breasts, decolletage, hips, stomach, and hands.
What skin tones can have Skin Tightening?
This treatment is suitable for clients with light to medium skin tones (Fitzpatrick 1-4).
What is the difference between Skin Needling and and Fractional RF (Max RF)?
Skin Needling and Fractional RF are similar in the sense they both cause a controlled wound which then triggers a healing response where new collagen and elastin fibres are produced. Skin Needling is an organic way of stimulating Collagen and Elastin production whereas Fractional RF uses a combination of dermal stamping and Radio Frequency. Radio Frequency uses deep thermal effects which result in contraction of the collagen fibres. This will give a tightening effect after the treatment.
Are Dermal Rolling and Fractional RF (Max RF) painful?
Both treatments have minimal discomfort due to the application of a topical aesthetic prior to the treatment.
Is there any downtime with Capillary Reduction treatments?

How does Skin Tightening work?
Laser Skin Tightening is designed to stimulate dermal collagen production and help with the regeneration of damaged skin cells. Skin tightening works on both Type 1 + Type 3 collagen which is a fibrous protein, found in the extra cellular matrix (Dermis). This treatment involves heat energy being delivered into the skin to penetrate deep down whilst protecting the upper visible layers and keeping them intact. It does this by deep thermal effect within the dermis causing collagen contracture and denaturation. This will then induce growth factors and stimulate new collagen synthesis which will then replace the old collagen with new fibres that are more compact and organized to give a less wrinkled appearance. Results are seen 3 months post treatments.
What will my skin look like when I walk out of the clinic - will I need time off work?
Each person’s skin is different – so your response will vary, but the majority of our skin treatments require no downtime. Your Skin Therapist will take you through a post-treatment care regime that will fast-track your results.
