Microneedling is one of the most popular, non-surgical treatments amongst maturing adults who wish to treat wrinkles and increase the collagen content of their skin. This treatment is an effective method for anyone looking to reverse the hands of time and combat signs of aging in the face, neck, and chest.
The concept of skin needling is based on the skin’s ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, abrasions and other physical trauma. Immediately after an injury occurs our skin destroys old damaged tissue and replaces it with new, fresh and healthy collagen.
Skin needling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro “injuries” in the skin which triggers an entire cascade of events that results in new collagen synthesis. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin down the line. A great treatment for all skin types especially patients with acne scarring, enlarged pores and moderate to severe wrinkling.

Frequently asked questions
The ideal candidates for medical microneedling include those who are wanting improvement in the following:
- Fines lines and wrinkles
- Sun-damaged skin
- Enlarged pores
- Poor skin texture
- Skin tightening
- Stretch marks
- Hair loss
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.
The Dermapen vertically pierces the skin to naturally stimulate collagen and elastin by activating the skins natural wound healing process with minimal epidermal damage. The automatic, high speed vibrating function with 16 microneedles of the Dermapen 4 increases the effectiveness of the treatment by rapidly creating multiple microscopic insertions, quickly and clinically, dramatically reducing pain and discomfort for the patient.
Other advantages include:
- 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.
Although the procedure involves needles, the patient experiences minimal discomfort as we use local anaesthetic cream.
After the procedure, the skin has the appearance of moderate sunburn which improves over the next 24 to 48 hours. The skin can also feel slightly dry and possibly even flake for a further 48 hours, however, when using our provided post-treatment recovery pack, the discomfort is drastically minimised.
Breathable makeup can be worn immediately after the treatment if coverage is required, and patients can resume their daily activities.
