Collagen Induction Therapy (aka Needle Collagen Induction, Dermal Needling, Dermal Stamping) involves using specially designed devices to penetrate the skin surface (epidermis) and create controlled trauma.The body’s natural response to skin trauma is to produce collagen to repair the damaged skin cells. Collagen is responsible for skin elasticity and firmness. This treatment can be used to effectively treat the following concerns:
- reduce the appearance of;
- fine lines
- enlarged pores
- stretch marks
The treatment involves the application of a numbing cream to the treatment area to ensure you remain comfortable during the process. Our dermal therapist will then treat the area using the device best designed to deliver the best result. Some redness and swelling may occur after the treatment which can take up to 24 hours to subside. Results can be noticed after a single treatment, however, we usually recommend a course of treatments to ensure the best results. If the concerns listed above are troubling you, make an appointment with our Dermal Therapist to assess whether Needle Collagen Induction is appropriate for you. We also offer different treatment options to address some of these concerns including dermal filler and more, so it is important to have a thorough consultation to ensure we choose the right treatment to obtain the best results for you.
