Micro-needling Treatment

During a time when everyone is on a mission for perfect skin, clients are turning their attention to treatments with longer lasting results. Collagen Stimulation Therapy™ (CST), Micro-needling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a cutting-edge treatment that harnesses your body’s natural powers of healing to tighten skin and achieve incredible results. The body responds to CST in the same way it would react to an injury. The small amount of bleeding caused during treatment releases powerful growth factors which are part of a natural healing response, results in boosting collagen and elastin production.

Clients favour the minimally invasive treatment for a range of reasons, it is especially effective for improving signs of skin ageing, appearance of wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, scarring, slackened skin, stretch marks, dull skin, dilated blood vessels and even reducing cellulite. Collagen Stimulation Therapy™ can be done on all areas of the face and body and is suitable for all skin types.

During this revolutionary procedure, your skincare professional will apply topical anaesthetic to ensure a comfortable treatment (Patch test required). They will use a small instrument containing tiny needles to create thousands of microscopic channels (tiny holes) in the lower levels of your skin.  This causes a minimal amount of bleeding that stops within minutes.  After the micro needling is performed your practitioner will cleanse your skin and apply nourishing vitamins A and C.

Clinical studies have shown that in doing so, channels in the dermis are produced, which stimulate the body’s repair defences, which in turn produces collagens and proteins to the treated areas of the skin. Afterwards, the skin thickness is increased by up to 80%, scars are smoothed and stretch marks and the appearance of wrinkles are reduced.

Post treatment, your skin will appear a little red, like sunburn for approximately 24 hours. The skin may also flake a little as the skin cells rejuvenate, which is completely normal.
