Microneedling is a gentle, affordable treatment that can improve skin texture, acne scars and pigmentation issues. By triggering a healing response within the body, microneedling ignites collagen and elastin production to rejuvenate the skin naturally, without harsh side effects or downtime. One session can leave your skin looking brighter, tighter and more evenly toned. With a series of treatments, we can treat more deeply-rooted skin conditions and concerns, and prepare your skin for better absorption of the active ingredients in your skincare products.

Our dermatologists recommend microneedling for the following indications:

  • Anti-ageing and general rejuvenation
  • Acne scars: used for mild, surface irregularities only; a low-cost option, although it requires more sessions to achieve similar results to nanofractional RF
  • Melasma: used when the effect of prescription cream or oral medication plateaus or is ineffective, or as an adjunct to these treatments
  • Microneedling-assisted drug delivery: used to deliver topical medication into the skin at the depth that maximises its efficacy

At Northside Dermatology, our preferred microneedling device is the Dermapen 4. During a microneedling treatment, the Dermapen 4’s 16 needles create minuscule punctures in the dermal layer of the skin. This activates the body’s natural healing mechanism which, in turn, leads to higher collagen and elastin production. There is no dragging or pulling of the skin, minimal discomfort during treatment, and little or no downtime after a session.

Almost anyone seeking softer, smoother, more flawless skin is a candidate for microneedling. To learn more about this minimally-invasive solution for tissue rejuvenation and regeneration, call Northside Dermatology on 03 8582 8688.
