Everything you need to know about Skin Needling in Perth


We are all looking for ways to combat aging and ensure that no matter our age, we look better than we might be feeling – less tired, less drawn, more plump and shiny – right?!

One of the best ways to combat aging and really refresh your skin is through skin needling, also referred to as micro-needling or Dermapen treatments if you use the Dermapen for needling like we do here at Museo. For those interested in this powerful anti-aging treatment, we wanted to take a bit of a dive into the treatment and talk about WHY skin needling could be the answer to your anti-aging skin goals.

What is skin needling?

An absolute powerhouse of a treatment, Skin Needling resurfaces the skin and combats signs of aging by generating new, healthy skin cells (called fibroblasts) that make your skin plump, shiny and fresh and most importantly RENEWED

Skin needling is designed to create a safe healing response within the body to ignite natural collagen and elastin production in the skin, without the side effects and downtime you sometimes see with similar treatments like IPL or Laser. Skin needling also repairs the surface layers to result in skin that looks brighter, tighter, more even-toned with refined pores and reduced wrinkles. It’s scientifically proven and you will see results from the first session –


“Histological examination of the skin treated with 4 microneedling sessions 1 month apart shows up to 400% increase in collagen and elastin deposition at 6 months postoperatively, with a thickened stratum spinosum and normal rete ridges at 1 year postoperatively. Collagen fibre bundles appear to have a normal lattice pattern rather than parallel bundles as in scar tissue.
– “Microneedling: Advances and widening horizons” Aashim Singh and Savita Yadav


How does skin needling work?

When the needle tip makes contact with the skin, it creates tiny punctures in the surface of the skin, causing the creation of new, healthy collagen. Skin needling is really the only true antiaging treatment which instigates the production of fibroblast cells that makes new collagen. By working on the skin’s surface and deeper into the dermis, we force it to send more blood, lymph flow and healing power to the skin. Particularly with skin needling, growth factors are triggered, which are responsible for supporting the repair of damaged skin, making components that provide firmness and elasticity to the skin while helping to maintain the skin’s protective functions. The punctures also act as micro-channels, carrying the topical nutrients used during the treatment deep into the skin layers for increased effect.

Through this process of neovascularisation and neocollagenesis, there is improvement in skin texture and firmness, as well as a reduction in scars and pore size.


Increasing cellular renewal is essential to maintain a healthy luminous looking skin and when fibroblasts are triggered through skin needling treatments, your skin activates these cells – building new collagen (which many of us older folk haven’t done for a long time), resulting in a more luminous glow, plumped skin, reduced lines and smoother overall appearance. Most importantly for compromised skins and reddened skins needling will thicken the epidermis and strengthen the surface layer, reducing the appearance of capillaries and improving and healing the acid mantle.

What conditions is skin needling suitable for?

Skin needling is suitable for all skin types. Whilst the most common concerns addressed through the use of skin needling include ageing, wrinkles, capillaries and post-acne scars, more challenging conditions such as acne, alopecia, rosacea, stretch marks, pigmentation and even vitiligo can be treated using this technique.

Perfect for face, lip area, eye area, neck, chest, hands, and even your scalp, skin needling is one of the best skin resurfacing improving treatments you can get, as well as being one of the most natural ways to achieve skin correction. With results after just one treatment (although we do recommend a course of them for correction results), Dermapen Skin Needling offers great results for the price.

Museo have been working with clients across Perth to improve the look of their skin, from aging and fine lines through to significant acne scarring, using Dermapen Skin Needling treatments.


“ I still have a while to go with my skin and am looking forward to getting more skin needling in the future but I can’t believe how far my skin has come!”

Following your initial course of treatment, skin needling can be done every three or four months to maintain results. You absolutely will see results after just one session, but it is the series of treatments that will creating lasting change in your skin. This minimally invasive procedure is the fastest, safest and most natural way to achieve skin correction.
