COMBINATION TREATMENT

Dr Aire recommends micro needling on dark skin to improve the smooth texture and appearance of the skin.

Dr Aire recommends caution when exploring certain traditional ablative laser treatments on dark skin (Skin of Colour). These may have adverse side effects due to the high levels of melanin that are not compatible with ablative procedures like cutting, burning or abrading. There is a risk of negative effects like scarring, hypo or hyperpigmentation and infection. The damage caused by such methods can be long term.

How is Skin Micro-Needling performed?

Micro-needling is a minimally invasive procedure where a device with fine needles is used to create a ‘micro skin injury’. These micro injuries to the skin promote collagen and elastin growth as healing occurs. This assists to improve skin texture, firmness and hydration.

Skin is first cleaned and then a topical anaesthetic cream is applied for 45mins to ensure adequate numbing of the skin, in a single motion, the dermal needling pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered.

How many treatment sessions are required?

One treatment session typically lasts for up to an hour depending on the area being treated. Depending on treatment indications, repeat at 4-6 week intervals, to maximise your aesthetic goals.

Is Skin Micro-Needling Safe?

In the past needling techniques were slow and painful. The doctor had minimal control over the depth of penetration, resulting in discomfort and inaccuracy.

It is safe for dark skin types and tones as there is no involvement of heat or chemicals in the process.

Our Eclipse MicroPen® and Mesoestetic® m.pen Pro is inherently safer than other products, such as dermal rollers.

Both devices deliver greater efficiency and superior clinical results while maintaining the highest level of safety. Advancements in finer needle tips now allow depth and speed to be accurately set, with consistent and predictable outcomes, especially on sensitive and darker skin pigments.

Prior to your treatment, we apply an anaesthetic cream to your skin to numb the area to be treated. After the treatment there may be dryness, redness and swelling which can last a couple of days after the session.
