How MicroNeedling works

MicroNeedling is a minimally invasive procedure that uses fine needles to make miniscule, evenly-spaced micro-injuries to the skin. This triggers the body’s wound healing process, stimulates healthy surrounding tissue to repair the damage, and brings the skin back to its healthiest looking state.

This repair process helps reduce the appearance of dark spots, wrinkles, sagging, and texture irregularities such as acne pitting or stretch marks.

Recent studies have proven that MicroNeedling is effective in targeting the melanocytes responsible for melanin overproduction, which means you can achieve brighter, more even-toned skin.

What does it do?

Dermalogica’s PRO MicroNeedling is safe, virtually painless, and can benefit all skin types. By targeting your skin’s inflammation and repair process, PRO MicroNeedling stimulates the production of new, healthy-looking skin.  Our unique combination of customised techniques and powerful, professional-grade actives delivers ambitious results. PRO MicroNeedling helps:

  • Brighten your complexion
  • Reduce the appearance of dark spots
  • Diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles
  • Refine the look of pores


Who is not a candidate for microNeedling?

Microneedling is generally safe for all skin types, but those who are pregnant, have a history of eczema, psoriasis, herpes, diabetes and other chronic conditions should consult with their physician for approval.

Does it hurt?

It can be uncomfortable in certain areas of your face. However, the treatment is fairly quick, and your professional skin therapist will work with you and your skin, progressing the treatment over time.

How many treatments do i need?

With any advanced skin treatment, a series of treatments is recommended for long lasting, visible results. It will always depend on your unique skin and goals, but generally, a series of 3 – 6 MicroNeedling treatments is recommended, having them every 4 – 6 weeks.

How much downtime is there?

There’s no significant downtime with this minimally invasive procedure. You may experience some mild redness and irritation for 2 – 3 days after MicroNeedling, but this will subside quickly. When receiving Dermalogica’s PRO MicroNeedling treatment PRO Restore is included as part of your aftercare program. This advanced formula helps minimize downtime and skin recovery with enhanced results. It’s vital you follow the post-treatment home care routine provided to you by your professional skin therapist – this is as important as the treatment itself for maintaining and enhancing your results.

Can’t I just use an ‘at home’ roller for the same effect?

At-home microNeedling tools may consist of either a stamp studded with tiny metal spikes of different lengths or a roller (for “Dermarolling”.) Dermatologists agree that these may not bring you the advanced results you’d get from a professional treatment. Why? Primarily because the devices built for “at-home” use have shorter needle depths that vary between 0.1 mm-0.3mm and are designed mainly to enhance skin-care ingredient absorption, not create the ‘micro-injuries’ needed for skin remodelling.

In contrast, professional MicroNeeding tools use needles ranging from 0.5mm-3mm that perforate the skin at deeper levels and require advanced professional qualifications and training to deliver safe and effective treatment. MicroNeedling should only be administered by a qualified professional in a sterile environment.
