Micro needling also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive treatment to promote skin rejuvenation. Micro needling utilizes a precise and safe device to create tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin. This not only triggers the body to produce new collagen fibers and elastin for an overall youthful aesthetic but also allows for delivery and maximum absorption of targeted cosmetic products. This innovatory treatment greatly improves overall appearance of the skin thanks to increasing collagen production and is particularly effective in reducing wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne scars and stretch marks.
Results can be seen between six weeks and twelve weeks after treatment depending on what is being treated, though visible improvements will be seen throughout the treatment period. Generally, within six weeks you will see improvements in aged or scarred skin or areas of hair loss. Improvements in stretch marks and cellulite can take up to three months. Each individual is diferent. Treatments take around half an hour. Treatments take place between two to four weeks apart. Packages usually consist of six treatments to achieve the best results. Results can be seen straight after treatments and will continue to improve for up to a year after treatment as the new collagen transforms and becomes stronger. Some conditions respond faster than others as all people are individual. Please consult your clinician to see how skin needling can benefit you.
Collagen Induction Therapy
What is this?
Also known as “skin needling”, “medical needling”, “derma rolling” and “micro needling” Collagen Induction Therapy uses a skin needling roller to stimulate the body’s own production of collagen, making it an ideal anti-aging treatment. During the treatment, the skin needling device, creates multiple tiny punctures in the layers of the skin. These micro traumas activate the skin’s natural healing process. Collagen and elastin are produced as a result of the complex biochemical process of skin regeneration. As you get older, the levels of collagen and elastin in your skin naturally decrease and skin loses firmness and elasticity. By restoring collagen and elastin which are vital skin proteins, skin becomes both smoother and firmer.
Studies have shown a single treatment can increase the levels of collagen in the skin by up to 1000%.
A second benefit of Collagen Induction Therapy is improved transdermal absorption . This means the skin’s natural absorbency level is enhanced and therefore products applied to the skin will be more easily absorbed. This is possible because the micro punctures that have been created in the skin act as micro channels to transport fluid through the surface of the skin and into the deeper skin layers. Once penetrated, the active ingredients of the products can get to work and aid recovery.
