Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. 

The needles are used to puncture the skin to create a controlled, skin injury.  This triggers the body's natural healing cascades that in turn generates collagen and elastin. 

Microneedling has been used in the cosmetic space for skin rejuvenation for years and is backed by scientific evidence.  At Papillon we use SkinPen which is a medical grade device that is TGA and FDA approved.

The therapist will thoroughly cleanse your skin and apply a topical anaesthetic agent for approximately 20 mins after which your skin is cleansed for a second time.  They will apply a hyaluronic acid gel to the skin and then start the microneedling which is done in a crisscross pattern.  There may be slight discomfort despite the use of topical anaesthetic but this is generally minimal.  At the end of the procedure the therapist will apply more hyaluronic acid gel to the skin which will be red and slightly irritated.  The gel helps to soothe the skin and to also penetrate through the microchannels that have been created to hydrate and plump the skin. 

Your skin will be red and irritated, similar to a sun burn, for approximately 24- 48hrs.  Occasionally it may be longer.  You will be supplied with the remaining gel to apply for the first 24 hrs after which you will be given a moisturiser to use morning and night for about 5 days.  Over the next few days your skin will feel tight and a little dry and finally you will shed all the top layer of skin to reveal new, glowing and more refined skin.

This depends on the condition of your skin.  Generally you will have a glow as new skin is revealed and the more treatments you have, 4-6 weeks apart, the more collagen and elastin is laid down that aids in your overall results.  Your therapist will guide you as to what is appropriate for your individual needs but most clients would benefit from 3-6 treatments followed by a maintenance program of two to three per year given the aging process doesn’t stop. 

In most cases you can expect to see changes as soon as the shedding of skin has occurred. As you have more treatments you will notice that the skin is firmer, more even toned with less pigment and fewer fine lines.
