Erase Your Skin’s Past

Our Medical Dermapen Skin Micro-Needling Technology provides an unparalleled response to revive and restore your skin texture. Used by plastic surgeons worldwide, this medical procedure, through the segmented delivery of microneedles, gently creates “micro-injuries” to your skin’s epidermis & dermis to stimulate the body’s natural healing response and trigger new natural collagen and elastin production.

Using Hyaluronic Acid during your Dermapen skin treatment, we help revitalise your skin’s outer layers so they look and feel softer, smoother, and instantly more hydrated. The result is a dramatic improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Our specialised medical skin micro-needling procedure is different from the standard beauty therapy industry service as it allows us to penetrate deeper into the epidermis of the skin for better results.

Skin Needling is also the ideal treatment for acne scarring as it creates a softer skin texture and softens the fibrous bands in the base of the acne scar, giving more flexibility and a naturally blended appearance to the skin.

Skin micro-needling can address:

  • Fine lines & wrinkles
  • Acne
  • Scarring
  • Cellulite
  • Stretch marks
  • Skin pigmentation issues
  • Skin tightening and rejuvenation
  • Enlarged pores
  • Unwanted tattoos
  • Aging Skin
  • Vertical lip lines
  • Vitiligo
  • Hyperpigmentation

I had my first ever cosmetic appointment with Nurse Jo 29/09 and I am so happy with the service. My results are still settling but I could see the difference within a week (really happy). I was really nervous but Nurse Jo provided so much information and options, I felt like I was being listened to. Thank you so much Nurse Jo!! Really appreciated the experience & support.

I went to Jo feeling nervous and uncertain of what I wanted after being sent away by another clinic who had no idea! She immediately knew what to do to transform me. No messing around, careful, honest and kind. I’ve woken up a new woman so grateful to have been led by a lady with experience and skill.

I booked an appointment for lip fillers and masseter Botox. My lips were severely asymmetrical so I went to Nurse Jo to have them corrected and could not be happier with the results. I would highly recommend Hamilton Skin Clinic and without a doubt attest to Nurse Jo being the top cosmetic injector in Brisbane. Could not be more grateful!

Couldn’t recommend more! Jo is an exceptional Nurse. She has such an in depth knowledge of what she does and as someone who is new to cosmetic treatments, has always made me feel comfortable and empowered me to make informed decisions by taking the time to explain how everything works. Jo tailors what she does to suit my face and offers alternative approaches to achieving the outcome that I’m wanting. I’ve never felt pressured by her to adjust or get a treatment I wasn’t comfortable with and the results that she creates always exceed my expectations. If you’re looking somewhere to get your next cosmetic treatment that offers friendly and approachable customer service, expertise and will yield amazing results, then look no further than Hamilton Skin Clinic.

I’m 77 years old never had any treatments like this and what a difference when I looked in the mirror I loved the softness of my skin and the very slight lift Jo has achieved. Highly recommend Harbour medispa…..

As a total novice I was terrified of looking.obviously done up. I was convinced subtlety couldn't really be achieved. I was so nervous about the results of my lip filler looking obvious against my soft features, but Jo worked genuine wonders. The result was believable, soft and subtle, a far cry from the protruding, stretched out lips I was desperate to avoid. I didn't think filler would be for me so I am particularly surprised by how confident I now feel, totally unafraid to see the people I know and love. Thank you, Jo!

What is Skin Needling?

Micro-needling, also called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) or ‘Dermapen’, involves using a tool called a dermapen with tiny needles at the end that make little holes or needle pricks in the top layers of skin.

The dermapen gently glides over the skin creating millions of fine channels. These channels help in trans-dermal delivery of topically applied formulations. The body naturally responds to medical skin micro-needling by launching processes to repair the physical damage. The result is an increased production of normal woven-collagen, similar to fractional laser treatments, but without the side effects and downtime.

How Skin Needling Differs From Laser Resurfacing & MicroDermabrasion

Skin Needling works to delivers the highest calibre collagen induction therapy to improve skin texture, smooth wrinkles and fine lines while softening scars. This unique process combines micro needling with the introduction of various vitamins and complex ingredients to the dermis.

While laser resurfacing and microdermabrasion techniques destroy the epidermis to create denser fibrosis in the dermis, Skin Needling preserves the epidermis and stimulates collagen deposition in the dermis.

The result is a simple, natural and advanced skin perfecting treatment with minimal side effects.
