Micro Needling, also known as Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy, is a treatment used to rejuvenate the skin and improve the appearance and texture of various types of scar tissue.
Tiny needles lightly puncture the skin triggering a ‘healing’ response from your body, which boosts collagen and elastin levels in the area and increases skin cell renewal. This in turn helps soften scar tissue, improving the appearance, texture, and colour. Micro Needling can also help to relax tight or thickened scar, helping to increase mobility and skin elasticity.
Micro Needling and Scar Camouflage can be performed on a number of different types of scar tissue, including:
Micro Needling is also a great way to improve the quality of scar tissue and skin in preparation for a tattoo or areola-nipple tattoo.

Scar camouflage (also referred to as skin camouflage) is a popular treatment with many people as part of their scar rejuvenation journey. Pigments are chosen to match with your skin tone, a sheer layer of pigment is then introduced to the scar tissue during your micro needling treatment to blend in with your skin. Scar camouflage tattooing works on many scar types and skin tones, helping to improve the appearance of scarring and stretch marks.
