Skin Needling

Skin Needling works by creating a wound-healing effect on the skin with tiny medical needles through a motorised handpiece.  It is by far the most effective and non-invasive treatment in today’s market. It is so advanced that the depth of the needles can be adjusted to tailor to your specific skin concerns.

It can even be used in those delicate and difficult areas such as around the lips, eyes and even on the nose. We love how instant the results are, and we guarantee that you will love them too!

Belle Cherie uses a professional skin-needling device that glides gently along the skin, penetrating the skin’s surface and encouraging the body to respond by creating new collagen and elastin fibres. As the skin responds, it plumps and thickens, reducing the appearance of scars, wrinkles and fine lines.
