Collagen Induction Therapy, also known as micro needling and dermal needling, is a revolutionary approach to anti-ageing.
It stimulates the body’s own natural collagen repair and growth processes to significantly improve skin tone, texture and impurities.
It is a very cost effective treatment with minimal or zero downtime and is safe and effective.
How does it work?
Micro-needling utilises and enhances the body’s own natural response to healing. A sterile roller with hundreds of tiny 1mm micro needles makes tiny pin pricks when passed over the skin. This causes skin cells to make new growth factors, collagen and elastin, which in turn make skin smoother, firmer and more radiant.
Unlike some other treatments it treats the entire face and is gentle enough to be used around the eye area.
Results can be visible within a week of treatment. Your skin will progressively improve over the next few months as the healing process that rebuilds your own natural collagen and elastin continues and replaces your damaged tissue.
Optimal improvement is seen six months after your treatment course has finished.
Am I suitable for this treatment?
Collagen Induction is suitable for all skin types and colours. It reduces wrinkles, fine lines and helps with lack of firmness, enlarged pores, acne scarring, stretch marks and sun damage. It also encourages the disappearance of red veins and diffused redness.
What happens during my treatment?
A topical anaesthetic is applied before the procedure to minimise discomfort.
Serums are applied to the skin to penetrate the skin at deeper levels throughout the course of the needling treatment. Cooling face mask is applied to calm skin and LED light is used to reduce redness, and stimulate healing.
How many treatments do I need and how often?
Multiple sessions are recommended depending on the condition of the skin as well as the size of the area being treated. A minimum course of 4-6 treatments is recommended for skin rejuvenation. Your appointment time is usually 2 hours and treatments are done 2-6 weeks apart, depending on treatment area and concerns. This will be advised at consultation. We encourage use of our skincare 2-4 weeks prior to first treatment to build up skin barrier.
What can I expect after my appointment?
You will experience mild sensitivity, inflammation and redness after treatment – these are signs that the micro needles have penetrated the epidermis. In very rare cases, bruising may occur. Plan your day to be quiet and stay out of the sun. There is generally no downtime and clients usually return to work the next day.
