Natural skin needling for glowing, radiant skin.
We pride ourselves on giving you a natural, holistic skin rejuvenation treatment based on what your body actually needs, not filling it with plastic and chemicals.
Skin needling is a modern invention, whereby your skin is pricked with 100’s of micro needles in the form of a derma roller or derma pen. Qi Medicine offers a painless treatment without bleeding or bruising, a walk-in walk-out procedure.
What does the dermal roller feel like?
During your session, you will feel a prickle or tingle on the skin. At Qi Medicine, we have been using these techniques for several years with great results. Many of our clients report the sensation is not at all uncomfortable. After your session, your face will feel slightly warm with any redness clearing within a few hours of treatment.
How does dermal rolling help my skin?
Skin needling with a dermal roller will leave extremely small micro tears in the skin’s surface. These are not visible and will not lead to scarring or disfiguration in any way. The bodies immune system will respond to these tears by re-building the matrix of the skin, namely collagen and elastin fibres (we all know collagen is good for anti-ageing!).
Over several sessions the skin will grow stronger, smoother and plumper through this cellular regeneration effect. There are no known side effects and we do not use any chemicals, peels, fillers or plastics in the process. Simply put, we let the body do all the hard work by rebuilding your skin from the inside.
Is dermal rolling safe?
Yes! Dermal rolling is one of the safest known ways to improve your skin’s appearance, without the harmful side effects of Botox, fillers, chemical peels and other nasty procedures. At Qi Medicine, we are all about natural and will use only certified organic products during your treatment to boost the skin’s own natural healing capabilities.
Absolutely. This is one of the best-known acne and scar treatments available. At Qi Medicine, we often treat old, deep acne scars with good results. It is usually a better option than laser treatment as many people do not tolerate the burning effects of laser treatment well. For those with dark complexions, skin needling is a great option- laser is often not at all recommended for those with dark skin.
What results can I expect?
Treatments will take time to take effect as the body will need time to heal. The formation of new collagen cells can often take several weeks to months, a little longer the older we get. Whilst treatment will never erase all signs of ageing, it can help your skin to look as young and fresh as possible, for someone of your age and lifestyle. Below are some results at the Qi Medicine clinic. These photos have not been altered in any way.

What should I expect in a session?
Because here at Qi Medicine we are real Doctors of traditional Chinese medicine (not just beauty therapists) we take great care in providing you with the most natural, holistic treatment possible. We know that many skin problems such as premature ageing, redness and pigmentation can be a sign of more severe underlying health imbalances.
The face is a beacon, therefore when your health is poor the face is the first place it will show. Qi Medicine offers comprehensive facial rejuvenation and cosmetic acupuncture packages designed to not only treat your cosmetic issues but also boost your health from within so you simply glow.
Cosmetic acupuncture is painless, natural and very effective at helping boost your health and wellness whilst providing you with cosmetic benefits. Often a treatment package can be combined with facial rejuvenation and cosmetic acupuncture, giving you the maximum benefit to your skin needling treatment.
A course of treatment will usually run from 10-12 sessions to offer you maximum benefit. During this time depending on your package you will also be treated with organic skin products to boost your results and possibly some herbal medicine to help you with any health related skin concerns.
Why would I choose this over say, laser?
Good question! Dermal rolling is in most cases a more natural and safe option, yet still giving you great results. lasers- by their very nature- burn the skin and peel away the top protective layer of the epidermis. This can leave the skin vulnerable to infection, may lead to scarring and is overall very traumatic for the skin.
What is the cost?
We know what some other salons are charging for their treatments- and it is a little over the top. Qi Medicine won’t charge you in excess of $350 per treatment because we are an ethically run clinic, and we like to keep things fair for everyone. Qi Medicine should be your first choice for skin needling, Melbourne.
