What is Skin Needling?

If you suffer from skin conditions, such as fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring and uneven skin tone, you may be a good candidate for Skin Needling. This increasingly popular treatment is a non-surgical option that’s designed to stimulate collagen and elastin production to help improve skin texture and skin tone. With many non-surgical skin treatments available, it’s hard to know which option is right for you. Dr Edinburg and our Registered Nurses are here to answer any questions you might have, from ‘what is Skin Needling to ‘how does Skin Needling work. Below, find answers to some of our most frequently asked questions about Skin Needling. Remember that we are best able to answer questions and elaborate based on our evaluation of your needs.

Due to the absence of heat involved, there is no risk of hyper pigmentation, making Dermastamp treatments suitable for all skin types including darker and Asian skin. If you have skin concerns such as pigmentation, redness, acne, capillaries, acne scarring, fine lines, crepey skin, enlarged pores or ageing skin in general, Dermastamp may be an option to consider. Come in and see us for a proper assessment and we are more than happy to customise the most suitable treatment plan for you.

The Dermastamp vibrational stamping device uses very fine needles to promote a process of skin stimulation and rejuvenation. The treatments are designed to stimulate your body’s collagen and elastin production, vital for effective anti-ageing and for encouraging that smooth and firm complexion we all want. The collagen stimulation and induction begins when you first have the treatment and continues over the following 6-12 months, providing gradual but long lasting results. The treatment helps repair skin naturally by encouraging the formation of new collagen and elastin fibres.

When treating scars the procedure works by releasing old fibrotic scar tissue from deep within the skin. Scar tissue is what creates visible scars on the skin’s surface so releasing this tissue allows the skin to smooth itself. Patients can often see improvements of 70-80% with their scarring when they follow an optimal treatment plan.

Treatments take approximately 1 hour. To start off, our cosmetic nurses will cleanse and sterilise your skin. Your skin will then be numbed to ensure comfort – as a result, the treatment is considered painless. The tip of the Dermastamp device will glide over your skin creating stimulating channels and often a good indication is when you see an even flushing.

Results are visible from the first treatment but for an ideal outcome most patients benefit from a minimum of 3 treatments, spaced approximately 4-6 weeks apart. Again, depending on the severity of condition and your skin characteristics, treatment plans will vary. At Eden, we have great packages that include after care packs to ensure that your treatment results are maximised. It is important to have realistic expectations – Dermastamp treatment results will not be as prominent as more invasive surgeries and patients with severe skin issues may not be the most suitable candidate for this procedure.

There is no skin burning or skin coagulation involved which is what distinguishes Dermastamp from heat-based technology and treatments. This also reduces side effects and there is close to no risk.

The cost of Dermastamp at Eden may vary depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. For example, Dermastamp may be combined with other treatments or products to help you achieve the best outcomes. We will advise you accordingly and create a tailored treatment plan that suits your body characteristics, your goals, and your budget.

Ideally you should turn up to your appointment with a clean, product free face. Your skin will be photosensitive after the treatment so it is best to stay out of the sun and avoid using any harsh products on the treated area for the following 48 hours. Again, our friendly and professional team at Eden will help advise you on what you need to do before and after treatment.
