Medisurge Aesthetics offers safe and effective micro skin needling, a minimally invasive regenerative treatment, in Melbourne at our conveniently located clinic in Wheelers Hill.
It can be used to improve the appearance of uneven tone, skin laxity and wrinkles, superficial pigmentation and scarring.
What is micro skin needling?
Micro skin needling is also known as Percutaneous Collagen Induction (PCI) therapy, roller therapy or derma rolling.
The procedure is manually carried out using multiple fine needles attached to a derma roller device to create microscopic punctures in the skin. These punctures stimulate the body’s body’s natural wound-healing process through the release of collagen to heal the ‘wounds’.
The size of the needles and manual pressure used will depend on the condition and area being treated by the derma rolling.
Prior to micro skin needling treatment, clients are advised avoid UV exposure.
To minimise discomfort, a topical anaesthetic cream is applied 30–60 mins before treatment. This means you should only feel a slight pressure from the derma roller during the procedure.
Following micro skin needling, you may experience some sensitivity for the first 24-48 hours after the procedure.
Depending on the extent of your procedure, you may also experience:
- Some swelling, redness and tenderness for 24-48 hours post-treatment
- Bruising and swelling 2-4 days post-treatment
- Tightness, flaking and crusting of the skin 3-5 days post-treatment
- Longer-term side effects are exceptionally rare, but can include changes in skin colour, delayed swelling and infection.
After care required is relatively minimal. Post-PCI professional skincare advice will be provided.
A mesotherapy cocktail containing Hyaluronic acid and Vitamins A, C and E as ingredients may be included as part of the treatment procedure.
