Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that can improve the appearance of skin by stimulating collagen production. The treatment involves using a small handheld device with tiny needles that create microchannels in the skin, which triggers the body’s natural healing response.
Microneedling can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars, as well as improve overall skin texture and tone. The procedure can be performed on various areas of the body, including the face, neck, hands, and chest.
During the treatment, a numbing cream is applied to the skin to minimize discomfort. The microneedling device is then gently rolled over the treatment area, creating tiny punctures that stimulate collagen production. A serum or other treatment may be applied to the skin after the procedure to enhance the results.
At Aesthetic Options, we use the latest skin needling technology – Dermapen Medical’s 4th Generation Medical Microneedling System. Dermapen Medical is an advanced automated skin needling device that is widely recognised as the Gold Standard in microneedling technology in the aesthetic market.
- Adjustable needling depths from 0.3mm-2.5 mm allows for treatments to be tailored and personalised to the client’s needs.
- Induces more micro injections per square centimeter compared to other microneedling devices.
- More controlled and uniform treatment giving more consistent results.
- Less pain and redness.
- Ability to treat hard to reach areas such around the nose and eyes.
The recovery time for microneedling is typically minimal, with most patients experiencing some redness and mild swelling for a day or two after the treatment. It is important to protect the skin from sun exposure and avoid using harsh skincare products for several days after the procedure.
Overall, microneedling is a safe and effective treatment for improving skin texture and tone. It is important to consult with a qualified and experienced provider to determine if the treatment is right for you.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that involves using a device with tiny needles to create controlled injuries in the skin. This process triggers the body’s natural healing response, resulting in the production of collagen and elastin, which helps to improve the texture and tone of the skin.
Is Microneedling safe?
How long does it take to see results from Microneedling?
The results of Microneedling are not immediate, and it can take several weeks to see noticeable improvements in the skin. This is because the body needs time to produce new collagen and elastin, which helps to improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines, and promote an overall youthful glow. However, the results are cumulative which means that the more treatments are done, the better the outcome.
What is the recovery time for Microneedling?
The recovery time for Microneedling depends on the depth of the needles used during the procedure. If a shallow depth is used, there may be little to no downtime, while deeper treatments may require several days of redness and peeling. It’s important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your provider to ensure proper healing and avoid any complications.
