Inducing collagen production to treat a wide variety of skin concerns.

Look refreshed

With the right dermal therapist and technique, microneedling is an affordable and effective treatment for achieving rejuvenated, brighter and fresher skin.

Skin texture

Microneedling can help improve the appearance and texture of your skin. It can minimise fine lines, wrinkles and unevenness.

Acne scarring

Because microneedling is great for remodelling surface skin texture, it can be an excellent treatment option for those with acne scarring and other types of scarring.

Minimally invasive

Microneedling uses thin needles to make tiny holes in the top layer of your skin. The damage helps stimulate your skin’s healing process, so it produces more collagen and elastin. These proteins keep your skin firm and smooth.

Short downtime

You are able to return to your daily activities after their treatment (albeit with some pinkness). You are able to wear makeup 24 hours after treatment and are usually fully healed within a few days.

Affordable

Wether it be for scarring, anti-ageing, hair regrowth or other concerns, microneedling is a high-value treatment option.

How microneedling works

Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy has garnered a reputation for being a highly effective, safe and affordable solution for a wide variety of skin complaints.

Ageing, scarring and a variety of other factors deplete collagen and elastin in the skin. Microneedling works by creating ‘micro-injuries’ which stimulate a healing response from the body, this response triggers the natural rebuilding of collagen and elastin; the all important proteins that keep your skin firm and smooth.

At LookFresh we offer the most modern, safest and proven technology available on the market which is why our micro needling treatments are done with Dermapen; a trusted, brand name microneedling device.

The Dermapen’s advanced skin needling technology uses twelve sterile needles that vertically pierce the skin with an automatic vibrating function. When moved across the skin’s surface the Dermapen creates fine channels in the dermis. The channels can carry up to 80% more topical nutrients, allowing for treatment delivery deep into the skins fibroblasts. This increased absorption into the skin creates stimulated repair and faster resurfacing results.

Disposable needles are used to eliminate the risk of cross contamination, while the adjustable needle depths allow for a treatment tailored to your individual needs. The Dermapen is so advanced that it also has the advantage of being able to effectively treat hard to reach places (e.g around the eyes, nose and lips). Additionally, the vertical delivery allows the needles to easily penetrate scar tissue.

Does it hurt?

Medical-grade microneedling would be painful, however we apply a topical anaesthetic cream half an hour before, making the treatment very comfortable.

What should I expect?

We are here to make your appointment as comfortable and anxiety-free as possible, so always feel free to ask any questions.

At your microneedling appointment:

  • Your skin will be cleaned so it’s free of lotion, oil, makeup, powder, or sunscreen.
  • You will be asked to inform our dermal therapist as to changes in your medical history and of all the medications you’re taking.
  • Your dermal therapist will ask if there are any cosmetic tattoos in the treatment areas.
  • 30 minutes prior to your treatment, topical anaesthetic will be applied to your skin.
  • The microneedling treatment itself takes approximately 30 minutes.

When will I see results?

Typically you will see results after the first treatment. Full, lasting results will come into effect after 4 to 6 treatments.

What preparation and aftercare do I need?

Before your treatment:
You will want to refrain from using abrasive skincare products, such as retinol, exfoliants, topical antibiotics and acids, for at least 48 hours. Avoid hair removal treatments. It is crucial to avoid harmful UV ray exposure from direct sunlight and tanning beds for the five days before your treatment.
After your treatment:
Avoid partaking in activities that will heat up your skin, such as going in a hot tub/Jacuzzi/sauna, taking a very hot shower, or strenuous exercise for 2 days after treatment. First Few Days: Continue gentle cleansing and moisturizing over the next few days. Avoid scrubbing, rubbing, or using exfoliants for 1 week.

Before and after

I do micro-needling! I just learned about it a couple months ago from a facialist in New York. It allows the serums and whatever products you’re using to really soak in.”
