What is Skin Needling and is it for me?

Skin Needling also referred to at times as Dermal Rolling, is one of the most effective dermal therapies for optimising skin regeneration. It’s a minimally invasive treatment designed to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as scars on the face and body. 

How does Skin Needling work?

Skin Needling uses micro needles on a medical grade roller or pen that is moved over the skin to create tiny, evenly-spaced punctures on the skin. These micro-punctures go through the skin with minimal damage to the upper epidermal layer, but creates a microscopic, generally painless injury to the deeper dermal layer. The minor injury and bleeding triggers a “wound-healing” response in the skin. This results in increased collagen and elastin production.

Is Skin Needling right for me?

Skin Needling can help:


  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Smooth uneven skin tone and pigment
  • Reduce the appearance of scar tissue and stretch marks; and
  • Increase the skin’s natural production of collagen



How long does the Skin Needling treatment take?

Treatment time can range between 30-60 minutes.

What is the recovery time for Skin Needling?

There is minimal down time following Skin Needling treatment. You may experience some redness for a short time after treatment.

How often should I get Skin Needling treatments?

This depends on your individual treatment plan and your treatment goals. Each person will vary slightly. Your Laser Clinics Australia therapist will advise on the recommended number of treatments at your complimentary consultation.
