This minimally invasive treatment is our most effective treatment to improve skin texture, soften wrinkles and smoothen scars.
What is Skin Needling?
At Mojo Beauty, we use a device called the Beauty M, Micro Needle Therapy, for all of our Skin Needling treatments. It uses oscillating micro-needles to gently pierce the skin and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.
As the micro-needles pierce the skin and reach the platelets in your blood, growth factors are released that rejuvenate your skin and restore a more youthful appearance. This regenerative procedure stimulates the body’s natural wound healing response, without any scarring.
Skin-Needling is one of the most effective and safest ways to improve many different skin conditions such as;
• Scarring (including acne scars) • Loose skin
• Fine lines and wrinkles • Enlarged pores
• Uneven texture • Dull complexion and broken capillaries
The Medik8 Way
At Mojo Beauty, we have partnered with leading Medik8 pioneer, Elliot Issacs from Medik8, to perform this amazing skin changing treatment. His mission is to demystify anti-ageing skincare with his philosophy of ‘vitamin C plus sunscreen by day, and vitamin A by night’. He has discovered that by using these 3 ingredients before, during and post treatment, improves recovery time and enhances results.
The true result of your Skin Needling treatment will be apparent approximately 3 - 6 months post treatment as your skin regenerates and continues to produce new collagen and elastin. Most clients report an improvement in their skin texture and clarity within a 6 - 8 week period and most can see a difference just a few weeks after treatment. This improvement is compounded after each consecutive needling treatment; the more you do, the better your skin will look.
Treatment Plan: 6 sessions spaced 4 weeks apart

Does it hurt?
The micro-needles of the Beauty M can penetrate from 0.5mm to 2.0mm into the skin depending on the area being treated and your skin concerns. Bony areas on the forehead would use shallower penetration and scarring on the cheeks for example would use a longer needle.
A topical anaesthetic is always applied to minimise any discomfort during treatment. Once applied, you shouldn’t feel much during your treatment other than a bit of pressure caused by Nik pushing the device down on your skin. In our experience, most clients are able to tolerate the treatment very well. A Medik8 Ultimate Radiance Mask may also be added on to the end of your treatment for additional healing and comfort.
When is skin needling treatment not suitable?
Appropriate skin preparation is essential to achieve optimum results from your Skin Needling treatment. Clinical trials have proven that results are increased by 40% in skin that has been adequately prepared with a systematic combination of Vitamins A & C for a minimum of 2 weeks prior to commencing needling treatments.
The Perfect Add on
Ultimate Recovery Bio-Cellulose Mask is the ultimate S.O.S treatment for skin in need of hydration. This soothing sheet mask provides intense moisture and helps to calm sore, dry skin by harnessing the power of nourishing and detoxifying natural minerals. Using premium bio-cellulose material which never dries out, the mask cools instantly upon application, enveloping skin in continuous hydration. Skin is left moisturised, calmed and ultimately refreshed.
Post treatment care:
Following your skin needling treatment, your skin will experience a mild inflammatory reaction resulting in your skin feeling warm and pink in a similar way to moderate sunburn; this is normal and generally subsides within 24 to 48 hours. Nik will discuss the appropriate after care regime with you at the completion of the treatment.
