How Does Skin Needling Work?
The concept of skin needling is based on the skin’s ability to repair itself from injury. The process of skin needling involves multiple needles of different sizes, acting together in a different skin area to be treated. Small punctures are done to the skin using precision medical micro-needles attached to a highly-engineered roller to incite collagen growth. Collagen growth is the key to skin repair.
This procedure has been carried out for many years and proven to treat a number of skin conditions. We at Fresh Skin Canvas use quality titanium and gold-plated roller to guarantee sterility and client’s satisfaction.
When Will I See Progress in My Skin Condition?
The results are observed approximately 8 weeks after your first session of skin needling treatment. You will see the positive signs of rejuvenation immediately after your treatment. Basically, you will observe results each week as the skin changes due to collagen re-growth.
Is Skin Needling Painful?
Compared to other cosmetic procedures, skin needling is not painful. As prior to the treatment an anaesthetic gel is applied to the targets ensuring that the patient feels comfortable throughout the procedure.
At Fresh Skin Canvas, we use the world’s best technology for our skin needling treatments, Dermapen. It is the pen needling technology helps the skin to repair itself after it has encountered any physical damage like cuts or scars.
What is Skin Needling with Dermapen?
The most advanced form of facial skin needling is known as Dermapen. It is the needling technology that uses electronically charged automation with an ergonomic wand. The vibrating effect of dermapen increases procedural comfort while developing small rejuvenating channels across the skin.
In this therapy, the disposable needles are used which eliminates the risk of cross-contamination. Being the most innovative rejuvenation therapies available today, it can easily treat hard to reach areas like around the nose, eyes or lips.

Micro-needling can be safely repeated every 4-6 weeks until you achieve the desired results. For collagen induction, we recommend starting with 3 treatments, but with a minimum separation time of 4 to 6 weeks between treatments. For scar reduction, an average of 3 to 6 treatments is recommended.
