What Is Skin Needling?
Skin needling is a type of collagen induction therapy where a series of tiny needles penetrate the skin causing thousands of micro injuries. These tiny micro injuries cause the skin to heal itself by producing new collagen, elastin, and healthy skin cells. At The Harley Clinic we use the industry leading and US manufactured MDerma™ fractional skin needling device.
The goal of fractional skin needling is to give the appearance of more youthful, younger looking skin, or heal damaged skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

The MDerma™ skin needling device is designed to puncture the skin at such a fast speed with such tiny needles, that it does not produce a painful response.
Yes, the treatment is completely safe. The needles used are one-use only needles, so there is no risk of contamination and the speed and depth are controlled by the MDerma™ device and our qualified clinician.
