Skin needling is designed for clinical skin rejuvenation of the face, hands, neck, decolletage and certain areas of the body requiring targeted skin regeneration treatment.
Skin needling creates controlled micro-injuries that trigger the skin’s natural healing response, inducing collagen and elastin synthesis to reveal a rejuvenated, more youthful and voluminous complexion.

Here at Enchanted your safety is first and foremost when providing treatments.
Therefore careful consideration was taken when choosing the needling device to perform treatments with.
Please ensure when booking these types of treatments there is a level of transparency from the salon or clinic in regards to the safety of the chosen device. There have been many changes to skin needling device regulations in the past 12 months of which I can safely and confidently say have been adhered to here at Enchanted.
With Skin needling, discover:
Tightened and firm ageing and lax skin
Reduced appearance of fine lines, folds and wrinkles
Reduced appearance of acne and chicken pox scars
Lightened appearance of hyperpigmentation
A clearer, brighter, fresher skin tone
Reduced appearance of enlarged pores
Improved appearance of stretch marks and surgical scarring
Increased resilience and volume of thinning skin
The needles create tiny wounds that accelerate the body’s natural healing process and work to repair the skin through increased production of collagen and elastin. Depending on the treatment area, skin condition and the depth of penetration some clients may experience discomfort. I will provide more advice based on your specific skin goals.
Your skin needs to be suitably prepared prior to beginning a course of peels. By booking in for a skin consultation I can set you on the right path with the Synergie Skin care cosmecuticals.
What happens during my treatment?
The needles create tiny wounds that accelerate the body’s natural healing process and work to repair the skin through increased production of collagen and elastin.
Depending on the treatment area, skin condition and the depth of penetration some clients may experience discomfort.
I will provide more advice and an in-depth consultation based on your specific skin goals.
When will I see results?
Visible improvement to the skin can be seen in as little as 13 days post treatment.
Deeper skin concerns such as uneven skin tone and texture, fine lines and acne scarring will improve with the collagen regeneration process and are generally visible 2-4 weeks following treatment. Most dramatic results will occur 6-12 weeks post-treatment.
What happens after my treatment?
Most clients experience redness and minor pin-point bleeding immediately after a skin needling treatment. Post-treatment redness may appear like a mild sunburn and last 1-3 days.
We will recommend a post-treatment skin care product to assist in skin hydration and accelerate your results. We recommend waiting atleast 24 hours post-treatment before applying mineral makeup to the treated area.
How many treatments are required?
Most clients will receive optimal results after 4-6 treatments. We will discuss the number of treatment required to reach your skin health goals during your consultation.

The 4 phases of wound healing
• Damaged area contracts (vasoconstriction) to reduce bleeding, a fibrin clot forms stopping blood loss (blood clot).
• Followed by vaso dilation resulting in oedema erythema and heat.
Leading on to the next phase –
Inflammatory (can last longer if the skin has not been prepared and is in poor condition).
Inflammatory (1 - 3 Days)
• One of the main stages of wound healing, in the inflammatory phase, macrophages such as neutrophils are perhaps the most important cells in the early phase of wound healing and without them little or no healing will occur. Neutrophils remove debris and bacteria and release growth factors which instigate a vital step to ensure complete healing and regeneration occurs.
• At this stage to reduce oxidative stress and to assist in wound healing apply antioxidants to help in the elimination of cellular debris and reducing cellular inflammation. Topical application of ACE Vitamins. In the first week apply Vit C and E, copper peptides and Retinyl palmitate to ensure the barrier defense is strong and the epidermis can repair quickly.
Proliferation (3 - 20 Days)
• This stage consists of angiogenesis, collagen deposition, granulation tissue formation, epithelialization and wound contraction.
• At this stage you may experience pinhead size rounded nodules, diffused redness or bruising may appear. Epithelial cells migrate across the new tissue to form a barrier between the wound and the environment.
• Keratinocyte numbers increase improving epidermal density.• A new extra cellular matrix is cultivated with fibroblast cells releasing collagen and fibronectin. Fibroblast continue to proliferate and glycosaminoglycans are released.
• New Epithelial cells migrate across the granulation bed to restore the epidermis.• The skin will be in a fragile state as wound collagen has no strength. The treated area will be more susceptible to UV damage and therefore extra care should be taken during this phase.
Maturative & Remodeling Phase (20 Days-2 Years)
• Fibroblasts replace Type III collagen with Type I collagen. Final stages of maturation and remodeling phase will be seen when the wound becomes smaller by the contraction ability of the myofibroblast cells.
• During this phase UV exposure can increase collagenase which will break down wound collagen and weaken the new Type I collagen.
