Direct Needle Therapy (DNT) is a skin rejuvenation treatment that helps to support the skin’s regeneration of collagen and elastin through a NATURAL healing process.

How does skin needling work?

Ultra fine, medical grade stainless steel needles are passed vertically across the skin creating multiple surface skin channels.  This treatment is designed to support skin regeneration to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin texture and glowing appearance.  This treatment can also support the healing of acne scars and improve the appearance of stretch marks and surgical scars.

The Stages of Wound of Healing

  • Inflammatory Phase (1-5 days).  Redness occurs, platelets form to prevent further bleeding and commence the release of growth factors
  • Proliferative Phase (2-21 days).  Increased fibroblast activity stimulates collagen and fibronectin creating more elasticity in the dermal layer.  New blood vessels are formed.
  • Remodelling Phase (3 weeks to 2 years).  Collagen is remodeled ad realigned creating a more plump dermis.  Scar tissue is flattened.  Epidermal layers becomes more dense.

How many sessions do I need and how often are treatments performed?

Skin needling is best performed in a course of 4 to 6 sessions. A minimum of 4-6 sessions is required for skin rejuvenation and 6-8 sessions for pitted acne scarring.  Results will vary and some clients may require more than the suggested number, for example, sun damaged and severely scarred skins. Treatments should be performed at 4-8 week intervals or 6-8 for darker or more mature skins It takes approximately 6 weeks for collagen synthesis and about 6 months for the full effect of the treatment to be evident.

A minimum of 6-8 sessions is required for pitted acne scarring.
