Debunking Myths About Rejuvenation Skin Needling

What if your skin could always look glowing and beautiful—catching everyone's eye effortlessly? Welcome to the world of Rejuvenation Skin Needling, in pursuit of timeless beauty. Understanding this amazing treatment is crucial for skincare. Let's explore the truths, dispel myths, and discover the benefits of skin needling for skin rejuvenation! 

Myth #1: It is a Painful Procedure

One of the most common concerns surrounding skin needling treatment is the fear of pain. While it is understandable to be worried about any cosmetic procedure, the truth is that skin needling for rejuvenation is not as painful as people may think. The treatment may cause some discomfort, but most people generally tolerate it well. Additionally, topical numbing creams can be applied before the procedure to minimise discomfort if you prefer. 

Myth #2: It Only Treats Wrinkles

Another misconception about skin needling is that it is only effective for wrinkles. While it is true that it can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, skin needling can also address a wide range of other skin concerns. These include acne, scars, stretch marks, rosacea, and pigmentation. The depth and intensity of the treatment can be adjusted to target specific concerns, making it a versatile treatment option for many skin concerns.

It's important to note the number of sessions needed will depend on the severity of the skin concern and individual response to the treatment.

Myth #3: It is Only Suitable for Fair Skin Types

Some people may be under the impression that skin needling is only suitable for fair skin types. This is not true. Skin needling is safe for all skin types and can be customised to suit individual skin concerns and needs. However, it is essential to have healthy and robust skin before treatment. This means addressing any existing skin concerns and following a good skincare routine recommended by a skin specialist.

Myth #4: It is Not as Effective as other Skin Treatments

While other skin treatments and skin needling can improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, they work in different ways. Some treatments, such as chemical peels or laser therapy, target specific skin concerns by removing outer layers of skin or stimulating collagen production. On the other hand, skin needling treatment promotes the production of collagen, elastin, and growth factors which naturally plump and tighten the skin as well as produce new cells. 

Myth #5: You Will Bleed During the Treatment

It is normal to experience some pinpoint bleeding during a skin needling treatment. This is a sign that the skin needling treatment is working and the body responds to the micro-injuries created on the skin. However, the bleeding is minimal and does not result in any significant discomfort. After the treatment, the skin may appear slightly pink and feel like mild sunburn but this will subside with aftercare within 1 to 2 days. 

How many Skin Needling Treatments Do I Need?

The number of skin needling treatments depends on individual skin concerns and goals. Generally, three to six treatments are recommended for optimal results, each spaced 2-8 weeks apart. However, more sessions may be needed for concerns such as scars or stretch marks. After three treatments, your therapist will assess your skin and determine if additional sessions are needed.


Rejuvenation Skin Needling is a highly effective and versatile treatment for improving the overall health and appearance of the skin. It can address many skin concerns, from wrinkles to scarring and pigmentation.
