The manual or physical removal of blackheads (comedones), whiteheads (closed comedones), milia and other skin congestion with a traditional hands-on method. 


  • Congested skin

  • Milia

  • Acne

  • Deep cleansing


The comedo or other skin congestion is extracted by gloved hand, sometimes with the help of a sterile disposable microlance or implement.


Traditional deep cleansing with manual extractions can be a good means of breaking the congestion break-out cycle and support the action of actives such as retinol, AHA's and Benzoyl Peroxide, or with reactive skins, prebiotics and anti-inflammatories. It can also be used to support medical treatment for acne, with the approval of your dermatologist. 


Regular Microneedling or resurfacing with AHA's can make extractions less necessary. CITbyJacquelineParker®, P&CbyJacquelineParker are excellent options. Microneedling causes growth factors to be released which speed up cell renewal and normalise desquamation.


Alternatively, combine with our Plasma facials, Medi-Facials such as Meder Science, Oxyjet or Acnelight Photofacials. Traditional deep cleansing may be suggested for you in Jacqueline's in-depth assessment process



None. Mineral make-up can be applied 




As required or monthly for those who suffer with congestion. Weekly or twice weekly for acne if part of a treatment plan.


Skin functions need to be normalised with deeper acting treatments and/or home care for lasting results.



  • Can I have a LED treatment straight after Microneedling?
    The answer is almost always, no. Microneedling utilised the bodies inflammatory processes which means anything cooling, calming or anti-inflammatory will counteract results. However, LED is an excellent treatment to have in between Microneedling session as using red and near-infrared wavelengths, LED enhances Microneedling results and stimulates the production of type 3 collagen. Microneedling then converts type 3 collagen into firmer, more supportive type 1 collagen.
  • Does Microneedling make products work more effectively?
    Yes, Microneedling is an excellent way of aiding the deep penetration of ingredients into the skin. This can be an advantage or disadvantage depending on the nature of the product. Some ingredients may be suited for topical use but are not sterile or suited to enter the skin directly. If non-sterile or unsuitable ingredients are microneedled into the skin they will bypass the skin’s sophisticated filtration and defence processes and can result in chronic severe immune reactions (granulomas) and infection. In addition, molecules that are too big can become stuck in the skin long term and potentially cause harm. We do all our Skinpen ® treatments with sterile, sealed, medical grade Mesotherapy or Biorevitaliser products for improved safety and results.
  • Does superficial Microneedling need to be done in a sterile environment?
    Yes, superficial Microneedling still bypasses some of skins barrier systems, and if not done correctly, can lead to infection and damage.
  • Do all depths of Microneedling result in the same effect?
    No, superficial Microneedling cannot produce the same regeneration of collagen and rehabilitation of capillaries as deeper Microneedling. It does however release growth factors, improve cell renewal, as well as aid the penetration of the right ingredients into the skin. Superficial needling is a great option to do between deeper Dermapen® sessions, for specific skin concerns, or for those who don't wish to do deep treatments.
  • Do I need topical anaesthetic to have Microneedling?
    No, you don't but it is certainly an option. Using topical anaesthetics can constricts blood vessels and arguably, work against the efficacy of Microneedling. Allergic reactions, if they occur, are more likely to happen in response to the anaesthetic cream itself rather than to any other part of the treatment. It also adds a half an hour to treatment time. The actual Microneedling part of the treatment only takes about 10 minutes and as a result, most people are fine without anaesthetic. On the pro-side, anaesthetic cream can make deep needling much more comfortable.
  • Can you Microneedle over the top of anaesthetic cream?
    No, this hasn't been cleared as safe to do. Anaesthetic cream is removed prior to treatment.
  • Will Microneedling improve all skin conditions?
    No, Microneedling is not a one size fits all procedure. Microneedling is suitable for all skin types but is not the correct choice for treatment on certain skin conditions. Proper consultation and evaluation by a skilled practitioner is essential for safety and best results.
  • How will my skin look after Microneedling treatment?
    The skin usually looks flushed and feels a little stingy for about two days. This is totally normal. You will look like you have a moderate or mild sunburn, depending on the depth of the Microneedling and your skin type.
