Skin needling is one of the best treatments for:
- Skin tightening, lifting and rejuvenation
- Acne scars, dark marks, sun damage and ageing
- Improving the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Minimising pores
What is a Derma FNS?
The Derma FNS™ is an electronically powered automated needling machine with nine needles that delivers over 70,000 insertions a minute. These multiple needles painlessly pierce the skin.
What does it do?
These small incisions stimulate the skin to regenerate by breaking down old Collagen and stimulating new
What is it for?
Great for targeting fine lines and wrinkles, also helps reduce acne scars (including ice pick), skin pigmentation and skin remodelling. The pen allows us to focus close around the eye so is effective for crows feet.
Combined EnerPeel™ skin peel + Derma FNS™ skin needling
EnerPeel™ skin peel + Derma FNS™ skin needling combined is a very popular treatment. The treatment is 2 separate treatments being done one after the other, the EnerPeel™ MA first and then followed by the needling.
What does it cost?
Combined treatment is £160 per session, normally lasting 60 minutes. This includes application of numbing cream before treatment and intense moisturiser post treatment. We normally recommend a course of 3 treaments 4 weeks apart for maximum results.

A topical anaesthetic cream will be applied to the area prior to treatment, to minimise any pain or discomfort you may feel. We use disposable single-use needles attached to the head of the needling device (dermapen). A gentle pressure is then applied to the dermapen, ensuring a smooth gliding motion over the treatment area. With each gliding motion, the needling device will be pulsing at around 30 – 40 times per second. The depth of needle penetration can be altered for each client, so the treatment can be tailored to your individual needs. For the face, each treatment generally takes between 30-60 minutes.
The number of treatments will vary according to your individual needs. This will be discussed with you at your initial free face-to-face consultation.
Visible results of skin rejuvenation are generally seen after just 6-8 weeks following the procedure and will improve over time.
Skin needling does not involve injections and therefore allergic reactions and side effects are unlikely. It is minimally invasive, involves minimal downtime (circa 24hrs), rapid healing and requires simple after care.
Derma FNS™ uses very fine needles and is relatively comfortable. A topical numbing cream is all that is needed.
Needle rollers also use needles for skin resurfacing but are often too large and unwieldy for tight areas. They are also dependant on hand pressure, so the depth of penetration depends on the amount of pressure exerted and how soft your skin is. The depth of penetration for Derma FNS™ can be set precisely with an electronic dial. The needles on a Derman Roller can pull the skin as the wheel turns, causing lateral damage to the skin. This does not happen with the Derma FNS™, which relies only on vertical needle action.
Your skin will be red and flushed in appearance, similar to sunburn. This will diminish greatly after a few hours following the treatment and the skin will be completely healed within 24 hours.
Aftercare is vital to maintain the results of your skin needling. We recommend you continue with the prescribed Tebiskin® range for your skin. This will help to hydrate, heal and protect your skin during and after treatment.
Skin needling treatments are priced from £120. Combined treatment is from £160 per session.
