Immediately after an injury the cells in the skin trigger a healing response. Dermal Needling allows for controlled functioning of the skin’s self repair system by creating micro-injuries in the skin. This stimulates new collagen, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. The result is smoother, firmer, more even toned and younger looking skin.

The concept of Dermal Needling is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters an injury of some sort.
Immediately after an injury the cells in the skin trigger a healing response. Dermal Needling stimulates new collagen, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring.
The result is smoother, firmer, more even toned and younger looking skin.

After the treatment your skin will be red and flushed in appearance similar to a mild sunburn. The skin will also be tight and have mild sensitivity to touch. This will reduce significantly after a few hours post treatment and within the next 48 hours the skin will be completely healed.
After about 5 days there is hardly any evidence that the procedure has taken place. The length of downtime depends on the micro-needle size used for your treatment. You will be informed about you predicted downtime and given appropriate homecare advice to aid the healing time.

Dermal Needling is performed in a safe, hygienic environment with the use of sterile dermal rollers or a Dermapen.
Medical grade anaesthetic will be applied to your skin prior to needling to ensure comfort during the Needling. After numbing, the therapist will then roll the dermaroller along the skin to create micro wounds. These microscopic wounds stimulate new collagen deposition which may last for up to a year, yet they close within less than an hour.
Nikki is a fantastic therapist from top to toe, so look forward to my appointments. My skin was a complete disaster until discovering Nude a few months ago. Highly recommended.

Nude is the best beauty clinic I’ve ever visited. The staff are amazing and I always look forward to my appointments. It’s a super relaxing environment with great treatments. So recommend!
Nikki is amazeballs :) I have been going to her for but 6 years and I love everything! Nude really is the place for beauty treatments of all kinds!
Two months ago I saw Nikki as my skin had reacted to something and had been a mess for weeks. The results and total turn around of my skin in a short time frame have been amazing.
Fantastic place, Nikki is brilliant at her job. Love going there
My therapist was lovely! I have never been somewhere that gives a head massage when your tint is on. It's like she knew my weakness. Very good massage too. Will be back :)
I visited Nude for the first time today and it was the most amazing experience I have ever had!
...the place is very quiet, private, extremely clean and calming. The staff were warm and welcoming from the moment I walked in the door and I was and made to feel very welcome.
