Also known as dermarollers, micro needling is an increasingly popular method of fighting signs of aging. Whereas many procedures involve removing the top layers of the skin, micro needling concentrates on treating deeper parts of the skin. Micro needling tightens the skin to create a younger looking appearance, as well as thickening the skin to soften the skin.
VIVA Skin Clinics understand that when it comes to having any treatment, customers want to know that they are in safe hands. We offer a FREE consultation, where we will discuss the treatment you desire and get to know you, and the results that you desire. Through our consultations you can meet the staff and learn about us and what the treatment involves, as well as finding if the treatment is suitable for you.

Before we begin the treatment, the skin is cleansed and numbed. For sensitive areas we may use an anaesthetic injection as the numbing cream may not always be effective. Micro needling involves using a small hand held roller with tiny needles which will penetrate through the top layer of skin and up to 2mm deep. This is repeated all over the skin, to leave thousands of tiny holes. These holes may not be visible after the procedure, but you should feel a sensation after, sometimes bruising.
After the treatment we can advise you on the best methods to protect your skin. We recommend gently cleansing the face with lukewarm water up to 48 hours after treatment and carefully dry the area without rubbing. For the best results, it is best not to touch the skin unless your hands have been well cleaned, and any products should not be worn up to 12 hours after the procedure, as it may block the holes and pores in the face.
