Microneedling Benefits – 6 Reasons You’ll Love This Non-Surgical Skin Treatment

Do you suffer from dull, wrinkled or ageing skin? Is your complexion compromised by acne scars, hyperpigmentation or large, clogged pores? Microneedling could be the answer!

Over the last decade, impressive Microneedling benefits have made it a hugely popular treatment thanks to its quick and painless procedure and impressive results.

It’s non-surgical, safe and a more-natural way to get the clean, clear and youthful-looking skin that you truly desire.

But what can it really do for you? What is it? And how does it work? Keep reading to find out…

1 – Reduce Your Fine Lines & Wrinkles

Struggling with dull, ageing skin? Microneedling benefits include reversing some of the signs of ageing by reducing fine lines and wrinkles such as crows feet, smile lines, smokers lines and forehead creases. By provoking skin cell regeneration we can stimulate the production of new collagen and give your body the resources it needs to create new, stronger and smoother looking skin.

2 – Minimize Your Pore Size

Large pores can be a real problem. Not only are they unsightly, but having big pores can make you more prone to skin problems such as acne and blackheads. Microneedling benefits include helping to reduce your pore size, cleaning out any dirt, eradicating the acne-causing bacteria and giving you clearer, better-looking skin.

3 – Tighten Your Skin 

Loose or sagging skin on your face can make you look older than your years and leave you suffering from low confidence. By stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin (the cells that give your skin its structure and hold it together) we can tighten your skin, giving you that smooth, firm appearance.

4 – Stimulate Collagen Production

Collagen has dominated the spotlight for several years now when it comes to anti-ageing and skin treatments – and it’s easy to see why! Collagen is essential for strong, smooth and healthy-looking skin. Using medical skin needling treatments we can instruct your body to produce more, stronger collagen: rejuvenating your skin and giving you a more youthful appearance.

5 – Improve Scars

One of the lesser-known microneedling benefits is its ability to reduce scarring. Acne scars, burns, stretch marks and other scarring on your skin can make you feel self-conscious but microneedling could be the answer. By stimulating your body’s own healing response and delivering the substances it needs to regenerate deep into the layers of your skin, we can promote healing and reduce the visibility of old or new scarring.

6 – Reduce Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is a common condition in which patches of skin become darker in colour than the rest of your skin. While it’s not a health concern, it can have a negative impact on how you feel about your appearance. This darkening occurs when an excess of melanin (the brown pigment that produces your normal skin colour) collects in the skin.

Using medical microneedling we can encourage your body to break down these deposits of melatonin and replace the cells with new, fresh and normal-coloured skin. Giving you back your clear beautiful complexion once again.

So What is Microneedling?

Microneedling (also known as medical skin needling) is a non-surgical treatment that uses tiny needles to stimulate regeneration in the skin, to give you a clearer, smoother and younger-looking appearance.

It’s safe, effective and hugely popular with men and women of all ages.

As you can see above, it can be used to treat many different problems, from general ageing to acne scarring and hyperpigmentation. By combining it with a specialist serum that gets needled into the skin we can enhance its effects, giving you noticeably firmer, blemish-free and youthful skin.

How Does It Work?

During a microneedling treatment, we use a specialist machine that makes lots of microscopic puncture holes in the surface of the skin. These puncture holes stimulate the body to start healing, replacing your old, weakened cells and creating more, stronger collagen and elastin (the cells that give your skin that firm, smooth appearance).

But that’s not all. We can also use the needles to deliver powerful, rejuvenating substances deep into the layers of your skin that need it most.

Stem Cell Microneedling  Benefits

Here at Elite Aesthetics,  we offer a stem cell microneedling treatment that delivers a specialist Calcerium Serum deep into your skin. These stem cells secrete a mix of proteins, growth factors and cytokines that can help to strengthen the tissues, improve collagen production and increase cell turnover within the skin. Helping to reverse the signs of visible ageing, smooth skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Vampire Facial Microneedling Benefits

Alternatively, you could opt for a Vampire facial which harnesses your body’s own collagen-stimulating platelets to boost regeneration and enhance your results.

During this revolutionary skin needling treatment, we take a little of your own blood and place it in a centrifuge to separate out the platelet-rich plasma. We then use the needling technique to get this healing plasma into the deeper layers of skin, where it can stimulate healing, boost collagen production and increase cell regeneration to give you firmer, clearer and younger-looking skin.

What To Expect During & After A Microneedling Skin Treatment

One of the best Microneedling benefits is that it’s non-surgical and only minimally-invasive – meaning no general anaesthesia, no cutting, slicing or traumatic healing period either.

It’s safe, effective and generally painless, with no long recovery period, so no need to take time off work to heal.

While puncturing your skin with needles might sound painful, it’s not as bad as it sounds – an anaesthetic is applied to your face and the holes are so tiny that the whole procedure is usually a comfortable experience.

After your treatment, you might notice some redness in your skin for the first 24-48 hours but this will quickly resolve.

Because the treatment harnesses your body’s own healing ability to smooth wrinkles, fade scars and rejuvenate dull-looking skin it takes a little time for the results to truly reach their full potential – the most dramatic results will be notable 4-6 weeks after your treatment once your body had had time to produce more collagen and new skin cells.

Read How I Improved My Lichen Sclerosus

Had a consultation with Elite yesterday, I must say I was a bit nervous, but Dr Shirin was so friendly and helpful.
I was given lots of advice and was given treatment options that were within my budget.
A few weeks after the P Shot I've really started to see a difference and have gained my confidence back.

Thank You!



Elite is an outstanding professional clinic with high standard treatments. All the staff members are friendly and offer you honest opinions when it comes to products and treatments. This is a welcoming clinic that I can 100% recommend. Treatments are spoken through and explained in detail, also aftercare. I have been going nearly a year now and am happy with all the treatments I’ve had, wouldn't go anywhere else. The Bocox treatment started to work within a few days, which I was surprised about. So glad I went to Elite for treatment.



Thank you Dr Shirin, the O Shot has really helped me with my Lichen Sclerosus. I'd heard about the treatment on the LS Facebook Groups and message a few people that had treatment with Dr Shirin. I was like many in the group who had run out of treatment options and using creams on a daily basis. I have to say a few months after treatment, I can see a real positive change and I'm hoping my LS will continue to improve. Dr Shirin did say that I might have to have a second treatment given how severe my case is.




A great discovery in the neighbourhood ! There is no need to go up to London for a beauty treatment of any kind. You'll find a whole range of different treatments suiting all age groups and concerns. Welcoming, reassuring, friendly, professional, high tech. I shall be back for more. I love the results of the Thread Lift I had.


Great service as always, skin is glowing very happy


Very happy with the result of my recent visit. For sure will continue with Elite in future

Hi, Alex here,Just had my Lichen treatment today with Dr Shirin,The whole team at elite are very friendly, comforting and understanding, and did everything they could to give me a wonderful and welcoming experience. They are all so kind, friendly and knowledgeable, world experts at what they do. I am lucky to have them near London. They are also super responsive on the phone and email, so I know they care about thier patients, and I'm very well taken care of, (as with other clinics I have been to, its often difficult to get them to respond to questions), but this clinic is the most responsive I have ever seen!This is a beautiful and wonderful place and I highly recommend it, and I will be recommending it to all my friends as well. They definitely deserve the super high reviews they are getting, so I'm happy to add another one! A Big thank you from me and my family for all you have done for us during this journey!

Yesterday I had a 'body sculpt' session, to help lymphatic drainage. I was zipped into a suit up to my waist. This massaged and lightly squeezed my feet, ankles, calves, thighs and abdomen. I was breathing oxygen rich air via nasal tubes. It was very relaxing and I slept really well last night. Thank you Elite Aesthetics.
