Skin Needling is an incredible treatment that can be used to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, acne and acne scarring, pigmentation and more.

We use EXCEED – a skin needling device that is TGA and FDA approved, MedSafe listed, and has both CE and ISO certifications. This essentially means that the device is off the highest quality and is proven to perform exceptionally well and produce results.

But the device alone is only one small piece of the treatment process. Your practitioners knowledge of the skin, how to use the device to target specific concerns, the depth at which we are needling and more all come into play.

Skin Needling devices (just like Laser devices) are completely unregulated and require no formal qualifications of any sort to use so it’s important you choose your practioner carefully to ensure the best outcomes.

Consultation Recommended

Before undergoing Skin Needling treatments, we recommend you complete a Skin Consultation with us and/or be using appropriate home care both pre and post treatment.

If we deem this treatment unsuitable/unsafe for you on the day, an appropriate alternative will be performed.

Your health and safety is extremely important to us! That’s why we go to extraordinary measures and invest heavily in 100% sterile, single use ancillaries including cotton balls, surgical gloves, and needling tips. No expense is spared!

Results don’t come from injury, they come from healing.

If your skin is in a bad state, barrier impaired, dry, flaky and overall struggling to heal and maintain itself, then microneedling isn’t going to correct that issue alone. It simply adds insult to injury!

We work with you – professionally and sensibly – rebuilding and strengthening your skin to ensure the best possible outcome.

Skin Needling can produce some incredible results and has a vast range of benefits including:

  • Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles

  • Pigmentation
  • Reduces pore size and improves skin texture
  • Suitable for all skin types (with adequate preparation)

Treatments are cumulative – each successive treatment builds on the last. For best results, you’ll require an initial course of treatments varying from 3-6~ depending on your concerns. From there, results can be easily maintained with far less frequent treatments and good home care.

Skin Needling can be performed on almost anyone, however we do adhere to strict health and safety protocols. We strongly recommend a skin consultation prior to treatment.

The consult helps us to identify any contraindications we need to overcome and 2) that your skin is actually in a conditions that allows skin needling to be performed (eg. it can tolerate and benefit from the treatment).

To ensure you get the best results, we may recommend another treatment first which will help us determines your skin response

Healthy Skin

Although Skin Needling is suitable for most people, there are many contraindications we need to consider and may need to overcome prior to the treatment being performed.

It is strongly recommend that you book a skin consultation prior to booking Skin Needling treatments so that we can ensure it’s safe and suitable for you and the best outcomes possible are achieved.

If you’d prefer not to have a consultation, then the decision to proceed with the treatment or not will be made by the clinician during your appointment. If they deem it unsafe and/unsuitable for you, an alternative will be provided.


Without adequate preparation or a consultation, there is a greater risk of delayed healing, lack of results and quite simply a waste of your time and money. It ultimately comes down to how much you care about the results you wish to achieve.

In many cases, we can perform the treatment without a consult or pre/post care however, the results you get could be undesirable (a waste of time and money). A consultation combined with pre and post care not only helps elevate health and safety risks, but it also puts you in a position to achieve the best possible results.

We have a duty of care to fulfil so if we deem the treatment unsafe/unsuitable for you, it will not be performed on you. This decision it at the discretion of the clinician on the day. 

Absolutely not! The depth of injury will depend on what you’re trying to achieve.

Going deeper for no reason will not only cause additional, unnecessary pain, but it could be completely missing the target cells we need to hit in order to achieve the results you desire.

No… and generally speaking, there shouldn’t be. While a very small amount may be present, it’s nothing like what you may have seen on social media which quite simply over-exaggerates the entire thing in order to get a good selfie! But hey, that’s social media for you.

Excessive blood in no way means a good result.

Whilst everyone’s tolerance for pain is different, generally it doesn’t hurt.

This is not what you might imagine when you read about needles piercing the skin surface at a high speed. But it all depends on what we are targeting, the clinicians skill, precision and technique. Some areas, such as across the forehead may be slightly more painful then across the checks.

Most clients experience around a 5 out of 10 depending on the area.

The pain felt can also greatly depend on how well you’ve prepared your skin – including homecare and previous in-clinic treatments. Again, another great reason to support your skin both pre and post treatment.

Generally, anywhere from 3-6 treatments will get you great results – but that’s a rough guide only. It will vary from one client to another depending on the skin condition and concern being treated as well as how compliant you are with pre and post care.

Factors such as preparation time and your consistency with pre and post care and follow up treatments will all contribute to the end result.

Some clients can start to see and feel results after a few weeks. The treatment is cumulative – so each one builds on the success of the previous one.

Pre and post care is vital to the end result.

One of the most exciting things about skin needling is that your results will continue to improve over the months that follow your treatment as new collagen and elastin settles, strengthens and rejuvenates your skin from within.

No, topical anaesthetic or numbing cream is not used and we strongly advise against it.

Not only can anaesthetic counteract the effectiveness of the treatment, but it can have some serious side effects as well. Anaesthetic toxicity is one issue, but the potential for allergic reactions is perhaps a greater concern.

While the chance of allergic reactions are low, the risks outweigh the rewards.

If you arrive at your treatment with anaesthetic applied, the treatment will not be performed on you.

Given our own unique technique developed over many, many years, the pain is more then bearable in the vast majority of cases.

We can treat most areas including the face, neck, décolletage, hands, stomach, legs and arms.

While a quality device is important, you also need to consider who is using the device on you.

Contrary to what social media would have you believe, it’s not just a matter of waving the device across your skin and hoping for the best. There is an art to it in order to achieve optimal results. The clinicians intricate knowledge of the skin, technique and skill all come into play.

Skin needling devices, just like Laser devices are unregulated. So anyone, regardless of knowledge, skill or expertise can use these devices as they please.

Exceed has the highest level of industry certifications anywhere in the world. It is FDA approved, TGA listed, MedSafe Listed and holds both CE and ISO certifications.
