Frequently asked questions

This treatment requires minimal downtime so you can go straight back to work after the procedure has been completed.

Microneedling treatments are between 30-60min, depending on how Dr Adè personalises your treatment.

Skin tightening can be felt 1-2 days post procedure, with skin texture improvement and glow becoming visible 5-7 days post procedure. Hyper-pigmentation and scarring requires multiple sessions for optimal results.

Microneedling creates controlled micro-injuries to the skin, triggering the body’s natural healing response and stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin fibers. This improves the texture, firmness, and overall appearance of the skin. Additionally, microneedling enhances the absorption of skincare products, making them more effective in addressing specific skin concerns.

The needles are extremely small so it feels like nothing more than a pin prick. A topical numbing solution will be used when a needle depth more than 2mm in used.

The sooner, the better! The tiny needles used in the procedure create micro-injuries that stimulate the production of new collagen fibers in the skin. Collagen is an essential protein that provides structure and elasticity to the skin, but its production decreases as we age. By promoting the production of new collagen, microneedling can improve the overall health and appearance of the skin, making it look firmer, smoother, and more youthful. Regular microneedling treatments can help maintain and even increase your skin’s collagen bank over time.

This treatment is not safe during pregnancy, but can be safely performed during breastfeeding. If you are pregnant, please book for our Glowing Mommy treatment.
