Microneedling and Mesotherapy

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves the use of a device with fine needles to create tiny, controlled punctures (micro-injuries) in the skin’s surface. This process triggers the release of growth factors and cytokines, stimulating the skin’s natural ability to repair itself by producing more collagen and elastin, resulting in younger-looking skin.

Fractional mesotherapy is an advanced skin treatment that combines collagen induction therapy by microneedling with the introduction of vitamins, minerals, growth factors, biomimetic peptides, and amino acids into the skin to target specific conditions. Fractional mesotherapy is more effective than needling alone, giving more visible results after fewer treatments. Skin recovery after fractional mesotherapy is faster due to the properties of the treatment serums, resulting in faster healing, shorter ‘down time’ and a narrower space between treatments, halving the time to achieve desired results. 

We also offer a needle-free treatment option with our Mesopen Pro that utilises advanced, next generation Electroporation technology to help our skincare formulas penetrate deeper into the skin, therefore enhancing treatment results. This option is great for those with sensitive skin or for those seeking a non-invasive, needle-free alternative to skin needling.

Microneedling and Mesotherapy are suitable to treat:

  • Hair loss
  • Scars from acne or other causes
  • Comedonal acne (black heads)
  • Wrinkles
  • Rosacea
  • Stretch marks
  • Loss of skin volume
  • Pigmentation
  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Increasing brightness and clarity


  • Preparation: Before the procedure, the skin is typically cleaned, and a numbing cream may be applied to minimise discomfort. You may be asked to apply your cream before arriving at the clinic.
  • Mesotherapy: The specialised cocktail of actives selected to treat the skin condition is applied.
  • Microneedling: The mesopen is a specialised pen-like device with fine needles is used to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin.
  • Needle-free mesotherapy: When needling is to be avoided, the electroporation head is used to promote cellular absorption of active mesotherapy compounds via negative ions. This is a pain-free method with no risk of hyperpigmentation or trauma.
  • Stimulation of Collagen: The micro-injuries trigger the body’s natural healing process, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential for maintaining skin elasticity and firmness.
  • Duration: The procedure usually takes about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the treated area.


While microneedling is generally considered safe, it carries some risks and potential side effects, including:

  • Redness and Swelling: Mild redness and swelling are common immediately after the procedure, but they usually subside within one to two days.
  • Bruising: Some patients may experience bruising, especially in sensitive areas.
  • Infection: There is a minimal risk of infection if proper post-procedure care is not followed.
  • Skin Pigment Changes: In rare cases, changes in skin pigmentation may occur.
  • Scarring: Incorrect use of the microneedling device or inadequate post-procedure care may lead to scarring.
  • Allergic Reaction: Some individuals may experience an allergic reaction to the numbing cream or other topical products used during the procedure.

Post-Procedure Care

  • Avoid Sun Exposure: Protect your skin from direct sunlight, and use sunscreen with a high SPF.
  • Gentle Cleansing: Void using any cleansers for 24 hours. After this time cleanse the treated area gently and avoid harsh skincare products for a few days.
  • Avoid Makeup: Refrain from using makeup for at least 24 hours post-procedure.
  • Moisturize: Keep the skin well-hydrated with a gentle, non-comedogenic moisturiser. Apply your mesotherapy solution, when provided, for 3 days.

It’s essential to consult with a qualified skincare professional before undergoing microneedling to ensure that the procedure is suitable for your skin type and to discuss potential risks and benefits.
