Micro-Needling skin therapy is a multi-function treatment that uses small needles to cause tiny punctures in the skin. These small contact points encourage the body to create a wound healing response and renew the skin cells. As your skin repairs, serum growth factors stimulate new collagen and elastin development. This treatment is most commonly used to combat acne and surgical scarring, enlarged pores, fine lines and wrinkles, loose and non-elastic skin and stretch marks.
This micro-needling treatment is based on the natural rejuvenating power of the skin. Shortly after any injury to the human skin, old and damaged skin tissue dissolves and is replaced by new cells. The gentle, controlled needling method used in the Derma FNS™ Micro-Needle skin therapy encourages this organic self-repair mechanism on a microcosmic scale.
The thin needles are used to gently penetrate the skin and create micro-injuries that trigger the synthesis of new collagen. This method is extremely effective and is hugely popular with clients who prefer a rejuvenation method involving significantly less epidermal damage than alternative treatments.
Derma FNS™ comes with disposable, sterilised individual micro-needling tips; each tip has multiple stainless steel micro-needles. The tip depth can be adjusted between .25mm to 2.1mm depending on your specific needs and different treatment areas. This allows the needles to be adjusted during your session for optimal results on facial contours and the delicate features such as your eyes, nose and mouth.
Compared to other leading competitors, Derma FNS™ offers many advantages. Its advanced technology penetrates more of the skin, allowing for better absorption of topical skin treatments, as well as stimulating new collagen production. Because of vertical delivery, the micro-needles in the Derma FNS™ cause less epidermal damage than traditional dermarollers, which have the risk of bending, breaking and causing large incisions in the skin, leading to more bleeding, pain and a longer recovery time. The stamping action of Derma FNS™ offers a more consistent treatment method that minimises pain and bleeding, better rejuvenating the skin.
Depending on your desired results, our doctors may recommend micro-needling with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). For anyone who doesn’t know what PRP is, it’s a concentrate of platelet rich plasma that is derived from the patient’s own blood, using centrifugal force which spins out the impurities, separating the red blood cells and the white blood cells from the platelets. This is a fascinating addition to your treatment, and our patients love knowing that we are using their own platelet rich plasma to rejuvenate the skin on their face.
Overall, the reduced intensity from Derma FNS™ causes less downtime than a deeper treatment, while still achieving a youthful texture with lasting results. It’s proven more effective than laser treatments and chemical peels for stimulating collagen and improving the elasticity of the skin, improving wrinkles, fine lines and scars.

Micro-needling treats many different skin concerns in an effective way by targeting areas to tighten and smooth the skin. It improves general skin texture including wrinkles, fine lines, acne and surgical scars, stretch marks and enlarged pores.
Microneedling boost product absorption by 3000% during the initial hour following your treatment. This is why we pair microneedling treatments with product boosters such as PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), anti-aging serums, retinol or hyaluronic acid. The thin microneedles are used to gently penetrate the skin and create micro-injuries that trigger the synthesis of new collagen, when combined with a booster you will have the best results.
Mild redness can occur for the first day or so. Avoid sunlight for the first 24 hours and apply a sunscreen of at least 30 SPF daily to protect the newly treated skin form sun exposure. For the first day after your treatment you will ideally not wash your face, as there are product boosters applied and you want to allow maximum absorption. Avoid working out or anything that causes excessive sweating for the next 48 hours, as well as hot showers and massages.
Whether you’re an older patient who’s looking to treat wrinkles, or a younger patient wanting to treat acne scars, you can expect a general improvement of skin quality and appearance with collagen increased by up to 1000%.
We normally recommend between 3-6 sessions, within 4-6 weeks of each other. This depends on what your skin concerns are, as each patient is different. When you come in for your consultation, we will be able to recommend a treatment plan for your personal goals.
