Micro-needling is taking the world by storm!
It sounds scary, but what is it?
According to Leanne Morris, co-owner of Harbour
Day Spa at Raby Bay, it is one of the most effective
'natural' wake-up calls your skin will ever experience.
"We are getting amazing results with this
incredibly safe and non-invasive skin treatment
Harbour Day Spa is a multi-award winner and
current title holders of Best Day Spa in Australia -- it
invests hugely in researching which are the best and
most effective treatments,products and equipment
to achieve optimum results for their clients.
"We are always very, very cautious and even
cynical about any new product, service or
equipment and do extensive research before
including it in our services or introducing it to our
, Leanne said.
"I've seen the results with skin-needling and
am completely sold"
Micro-needling, is also known as collagen
induction therapy or derma rolling and it works by
kick-starting the skin to do what it does naturally!
It works like this -- a cosmetic device uses 192
tiny very, very fine stainless steel needles to
rejuvenate, revitalise and regenerate the skin. By
rolling the device over the skin, small puncture
wounds are created which in turn stimulates
So rather than fill the skin with injected
collagen, this treatment basically tricks your skin
into generating new collagen on its own.This can
effectively reduce the appearance of acne scars,
fine lines and wrinkles, it can fill in scars,produce a
more even skin tone and tighter, firmer skin
resulting in an overall smoother more radiant and
Leanne's tried micro-needling herself and
claims "It's not exactly relaxing, but it's not painful
either and it's certainly effective.
One of our therapists had fairly severe acne
scarring, she was the first to line up to use it - her
skin is now just amazing,"Leanne said
"And we've also had incredible results with
ladies like me who are of 'a certain age' and
witnessed a return to much, much smoother and
With no injections, heat or downtime the
recovery is easier and the risk is much less than
other, more invasive, treatment options.
The number of treatments required depends
on how each individual responds to the
treatments, and the extent of the damage at the
beginning. Most clients will require a course of
three treatments to achieve a significant,
noticeable result; however results will
be evident after the first treatment.
The cost is viewed by Harbour Day Spa's
clients as an investment and compared to other
treatments, skin-needling is very cost effective at
$350 per treatment or $950 for a series of three
