The concept of skin needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy) is based on the skin’s ability to naturally repair itself. This process of repair happens whenever the skin encounters physical damage such as cuts, burns or other abrasions. Whenever damage to the skin occurs, the body immediately removes the damaged collagen, elastin and other structures which are then replaced with new components. Collagen Induction Therapy allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism, by creating micro-injuries which trigger new collagen synthesis yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. Basically, this treatment results in smoother, firmer and younger looking skin!
Low collagen levels are mostly caused by sunlight, smoking and sugar. Collagen deficiencies can have many effects on your skin such as causing wrinkles, cellulite and facial hallowing. By increasing the amount of collagen and other important proteins in your skin through Collagen Induction Therapy, you will notice that your skin will become more taut and supple. This treatment also provides a means of restoring youthfulness and evening out your skin tone.
Results are long-lasting and quite spectacular for Collagen Induction Therapy. This treatment is mainly used on the face to help minimise various scars, wrinkles, and large pores. However, Collagen Induction Therapy can also be used on other areas of the body to treat stretch marks and injury scars.
Collagen Induction Therapy is a minimally invasive treatment that does not involve any harmful chemicals (so you don’t have to worry about any nasties getting introduced into your skin).
This treatment is quick and easy – the total prep and procedure time takes about two hours. Plus, you can go back to work on the same day after the treatment! Collagen Induction Therapy has little to no side effects, and any signs of redness or sensitivity in the treated area will subside within 24 hours.
Visible signs of skin rejuvenation are usually seen after just 6 weeks following the treatment and continue to improve for up to a year or more. We recommend a minimum course of 3 skin needling treatments, at 2-week intervals to achieve optimum results. Each session is performed by repeating the same needling procedure, with new areas of your skin treated each time.
