Smooth your skin with microneedling from our renowned aesthetics clinic in the heart of Liverpool.

Dramatically reduce acne scars, smooth uneven skin, and minimise your pores with microneedling treatment from Smileworks. Also known as a microneedling facial, this powerful treatment gives life-changing results in just a few sessions. We have a team of highly trained and skilled skin practitioners who are experts in all things microneedling and skin texture.

Over time, your skin becomes more textured. This can happen as a result of scarring from acne or other wounds, or fine lines and wrinkles as a natural result of the ageing process. To repair and prevent uneven skin texture, skin rejuvenation treatments like microneedling are a must.


Had my first microneedling session with Hannah which has left my skin feeling funky fresh! Hannah explained the entire procedure from start to finish, it was painless. Can't thank you enough for making me feel at ease, knowing it is not easy for me to go out and about without make up due to years of acne. Cannot wait for my next session!

conditions treated

Acne Scars: If you struggle with acne scars, microneedling offers a transformative solution. This treatment promotes the skin’s natural healing process, effectively reducing the appearance of pitted acne scars.

Signs of Ageing: Because microneedling stimulates collagen production, pesky signs of ageing like fine lines and wrinkles will be reduced.

Stretch Marks: Stretch marks are notoriously difficult to treat, but with microneedling the impossible becomes possible. Expect smoother skin fast.

Hyperpigmentation: As your skin heals after treatment, not only is texture smoothed out, but hyperpigmentation will also fade.

what does microneedling do?

Microneedling is a noninvasive but highly effective treatment. At your appointment, our practitioner uses a dermapen with 12 microneedles to cause thousands of tiny punctures into the bottom layer of your skin. As these small injuries heal, more collagen and elastin is produced to promote remodelling of scars, lines and wrinkles, and enlarged pores.

This treatment is similar to laser treatment and chemical peels. It wounds the skin in to promote a smoother, glowier layer of skin to form. So not only will your skin look noticeably smoother, but you’ll also get a rejuvenation like no other!

side effects of microneedling

When administered properly, microneedling is an incredibly safe treatment. Minor side effects like facial redness and tight skin are common, but subside within 12-48 hours. Severe side effects are very rare, especially when you get your treatment at Smileworks. We have a high standard for patient safety, so you have nothing to worry about. All you need to do is arrive at your appointment and expect great skin!

a total powerhouse: derma FNS pen

At Smileworks, we use the best dermapen in the industry: Derma FNS. This is a microneedling device that ticks all of the boxes for our patients. It’s painless, safe, and dramatically improves the appearance of acne scars, signs of ageing, and stretch marks. On top of that, it provides unbeatable skin rejuvenation. Not only will your skin texture improve, but you’ll also leave with a glow you’ll obsess over.

The powerful Derma FNS pen is currently the only microneedling pen on the market to not only push the minuscule needles into your skin at 80,000 insertions a minute but also ensure 80,000 full retractions. This ensures your safety during treatment while also delivering maximum collagen renewal.

microneedling cost uk

Let’s face it: treatments that improve skin texture are among the most expensive, especially when your acne scars or fine lines are deep. Ablative laser treatment is incredibly effective, but it doesn’t fit into everyone’s budget. With a single session of the Aerolase Era starting at £650, microneedling in the UK is a significantly cheaper alternative that still produces great results.

How often you get microneedling treatment depends on your skin and goals. Typically, repeat treatments are spaced 4-6 weeks after your last treatment. This time gives your skin enough time to regenerate collagen and elastin. Some may be happy with the results after just one treatment, while others may need more to reach their skin goals.

Most of our patients require 3-6 sessions. But remember the exact number depends on your skin’s condition and the issues you want addressed. For example, those looking to treat deep acne scars require more sessions than those just looking for a general improvement of the skin.

While some may notice an improvement immediately after treatment, it takes 4-6 weeks to see your full results. Your skin needs time to produce new collagen and elastin. The full benefits of microneedling are seen after a series of treatments.

Before your appointment, avoid using retinol products and prolonged sun exposure for about a week to prevent skin irritation. Arrive at your appointment without make-up.

Luckily, microneedling aftercare is incredibly easy due to the minimal downtime. Focus on keeping your skin clean, hydrated, and protected from the sun. Avoid using active skincare ingredients (retinol, acids, etc.) for at least 48 hours after treatment to allow your skin to heal properly. Your practitioner will also give you an aftercare plan at your appointment.

Absolutely! Microneedling is a great treatment for all types of scars, including acne scars. The treatment works by stimulating the skin’s natural healing process. This promotes collagen and elastin production, which fills in and smooths out scars.

Yes, microneedling can help tighten the skin. By creating micro-injuries in the skin, collagen and elastin growth is triggered. These two proteins are key for skin firmness and elasticity.

While you may need multiple sessions to see significant results, results from microneedling are permanent. Be sure to maintain a good skincare routine as this will help maximise your results.

Wait 48 hours before applying makeup. You don’t want to risk skin infection by applying makeup products too soon after treatment. Give your skin time to begin the healing process before using makeup or active skincare products.
