Smoother, brighter, younger, healthier looking skin.
Professional skin-needling has been established to be a clinically effective procedure that can have remarkable results in significantly improving the appearance of your skin. It can improve acne scars, sun-damaged and ageing skin as well as reducing facial and décolleté lines, wrinkles and stretch marks.
At Temple Clinic we use 2 types of skin needling systems:
- EDS Rejuvenation
- ENDYMED™ INTENSIF
Collagen Growth Factor Facial
New to skin needling? Try out this ‘no prep’ introductory treatment first.
This is a fantastic new treatment which we now offer at Temple Clinic. Micro-needling surface skin renewal is combined with the infusion of Endocare growth factors and a lift and sculpt massage to stimulate collagen production in three ways.
With no pain or downtime, treatments take around 45 minutes and create an instant healthy glow. It is a fantastic treatment for common skin complaints particularly ageing, lacklustre and tired looking skin with an impaired texture and tone.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
EDS is a special microneedling pen type device that contains sterile microneedles. The therapist uses the eDS with specific skincare products carefully selected for your skin.
The effect of the microneedling is to make tiny little channels through the surface of the skin.This pierces the skin barrier for a short period of time and allows deep penetration of any products immediately applied to the skin. The microneedling, in causing tiny injuries to the skin surface, encourages the skin’s innate ability to repair itself. This stimulates collagen production which improves the texture of the skin, helps to repair scars and stretch marks and will also result in firmer, tighter skin.
Endymed Intensif uses radiofrequency at the same time as the needling. Every time the needle pierces the skin, a controlled burst of radiofrequency is sent to the collagen producing cells. This encourages more collagen stimulation deeper within the tissues resulting in a much more intense treatment and more impressive results.
WHAT HAPPENS AT MY APPOINTMENT?
You will be in the clinic for around 1 hour 45 mins. Firstly, your skin is thoroughly cleansed and then photos are taken to be kept as part of the record of your progress. You will then have some numbing cream applied which will take about 30 minutes to work. The needling treatment takes about 30 , and is followed by a session of Omnilux light therapy,which accelerates the healing process and thus reduces your down time. Appropriate skincare will be applied following the treatment. Aftercare advice will be given.
We often recommend including Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy to any needling treatment.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is the revolutionary rejuvenation procedure using your body’s own healing resources.
It is a completely safe and natural treatment that is highly effective in improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, stretchmarks and scars. As well as improving the skin tone, the treatment also promotes healthy skin growth and collagen production resulting in skin appearing plumper and more vibrant.
IS SKIN NEEDLING PAINFUL?
Before your treatment your skin will be numbed using a topical anaesthetic (numbing cream) so you’ll remain comfortable throughout.
HOW LONG IS THE RECOVERY TIME?
Immediately after your needling treatment, you may look as though you have mild sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This will start to subside over the next 2-3 hours and will normally recover within 24hours. Typically most people have only slight redness the following day. The Omnilux light therapy can significantly reduce the redness.
Occasionally this redness can persist for 3-7 days. We suggest avoiding make up for at least 24 hours and we shall provide you with appropriate skincare products to use which will help with effective healing. Mineral make up can be worn.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Our comprehensive skin consultations cost £50. If you decide to go ahead with treatments and products this £50 can be redeemed against the cost of these.
