Microneedling also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a proven skin rejuvenation technique that involves the use of a short needle to penetrate microscopic channels into the skin. This stimulates superficial collagen through the natural wound healing process. Microneedling is used to help a variety of skin concerns, including uneven skin tone or texture, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, stretch marks and pigmentation from sun damage.

Do I have to do anything before my treatment?
Before any treatment at Dermacore, a free client consultation takes place. During this consultation, client requirements and client suitability (based on medical history and lifestyle) for treatment are assessed. Based on these findings, a personalised treatment plan is created to help deliver the results as per client expectations.
How quickly will I see results?
Most clients see a visible improvement in firmness, tone and texture after the first treatment. While some results are immediate, best results can be expected in the following 4-6 weeks.
How long will the results last?
The results from micro-needling are ‘permanent’ and can last for many years, giving you a youthful, radiant look. However, as your skin ages, it requires Maintenance this is due to the constant turnover of collagen.
How many treatments do I need?
We recommended a course of 4-6 treatments, 4 to 6 weeks apart in the first year depending on your cosmetic goal.
