Bio-Therapeutic Needling

Introducing a Skin Essentials worldwide exclusive!


Microneedling at Skin Essentials by Mariga is your best choice for safety, experience, education and results.
Clinical Microneedling has become the international gold standard in non-surgical skin revision for wrinkles and acne scars over the last few years, with numerous clinical studies and thousands of satisfied clients backing up the science of collagen induction therapy.

We particularly recommend this for skin that is showing the first signs of ageing or as an occasional collagen boost on younger skin as a pre-ageing prevention treatment.

For skin that is showing deeper signs of ageing please check out our Divine Pro combined microneedling and radiofrequency treatments.

At Skin Essentials we have integrated the precision Swiss technology of the Dr. Dermic automated needling machine with our exclusive state of the art Bio Phototherapy skin modulation device to bring you the future of skincare – NOW.

The principle of clinical microneedling is to stimulate the body’s own healing and collagen production to improve skin texture, reduce lines and wrinkle depth and improve the appearance of old marks and scars.

It involves the use of an automated microneedling device used in conjunction with pure, hyaluronic acid.

The needling opens numerous micro channels into the skin, without harming the epidermis or barrier layers, which stimulates collagen and elastin production deep in the skin structure.

This precision process creates new collagen fibres which build over time to give positive and visible changes from deep in the skin’s layers.

Skin will be tightened, smoother, wrinkles reduced, and scars reduced.

The Celluma biophoto modulation is a NASA designed technology that utilises very specific wavelengths of light to bring about change deep in the skin’s structure.

We combine anti-inflammatory and collagen-induction wavelengths with our needling therapy to deepen and accelerate your end result.

The end point is that increased collagen production, fibroblast stimulation and associated natural healing factors are released at each point of penetration and transform over time into strong new collagen fibres resulting in increased strength, firmness and elasticity.

The new collagen fills scars and wrinkles from the bottom up, resulting in decreased depth of lines and scars and a smoother appearance.

This process takes several months to complete and a course of 3-6 treatments is needed.

Bio Therapeutic Needling may also be used in a single treatment in skin that is just beginning to show signs of ageing such as fine lines or dullness.

In this case, a single treatment every 4-6 months will keep collagen production stimulated and slow the visible signs of the ageing process.


Bio Therapeutic Needling is used in conjunction with the correct home care chosen specifically for your needs and results will not be maximised if home care is not complied with.

Because Bio Therapeutic Needling is a therapy that uses the skin’s own resources rather than introducing foreign materials into the skin, it is an almost universal treatment.

However, if you are diabetic, haemophiliac, or otherwise have a compromised immune system this is not for you.

Note: wrinkles caused by glycation will not respond to this treatment.

This is relatively rare and is determined at your initial consultation before you embark on a course of treatment.

FAQ’s on Bio Therapeutic Needling:

How does it feel?

The sensation is that of a slight prickling, itchy feeling on the skin. This lasts only while the needling part of the treatment is being delivered (15-20 minutes).

Is there any downtime?

You will be pink/red for up to 48 hours after treatment. Mineral makeup may be applied the next day if required. Skin may feel sensitive for up to 3 days after treatment.

How many treatments are necessary for visible results?

Age and other factors such as skin condition, genetics and other lifestyle issues will determine your personal course requirements.

This is discussed at your initial skin analysis appointment.

Typically, three sessions spaced four weeks apart are all that is required. Up to six may be required for deep revision on some individuals.

When will results be seen?

Improvements in skin texture will be seen from the first session, with fine lines and blemishes diminished. Improvements continue throughout the treatment course. Collagen remodelling continues to take place in the skin up to 6-12 months after treatment and lines/scars continue to improve. Results are maintained with correct home care and maintenance plan.
