Quick Skin Needling FAQ’s
Q: How many treatments are recommended for rejuvenation, acne scarring and stretch marks?

- Skin Rejuvenation: 4-8 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart
- Stretch marks: 6-8 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart
- Acne Scarring: 6-8 treatments, 6 weeks apart
- Trauma & Surgical Scars: 6-8 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart

Q: Should I prepare my skin before having a Skin Needling Treatment?
A: For optimal results, a period of effective active treatment using organic serums for your specific concerns is recommended to allow the skin’s strength to build-up (especially for thin or delicate skin areas). On your initial consultation, our skin clinician will recommend organic products that will best suit you.
Q: How long should it take before I see results?
A: Typically, you will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will occur after 4 to 8 treatments (spaced 4-6 weeks apart). Your skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months after a course of treatments and when combined with the recommended post treatment care.
Q: Is there any downtime after treatments?
A: Generally no, but you may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment. Most people are able to return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment. Application of a breathable camouflage cream will seal the skin and cover any redness for an immediate return to work.
Q: How soon after filler injections can I have a Skin Needling Treatment?
A: It is recommended to wait at least 7-14 days after filler injections so that any post-treatment bruising from the fillers can settle. It is also possible to have your Skin Needling Treatment several days before having fillers injected. Consult our skin clinician prior to determine exactly how long a wait is best in each particular case.
