Collagen Induction Therapy (Skin Needling)

About Skin Needling

Skin needling is a non-surgical cosmetic, minimally invasive treatment that stimulates the skin to rejuvenate via it’s natural wound healing responses. Micro-needles are introduced once the skin is topically numbed with an individually prescribed anesthetic. Depending on the skin, needle depths may vary and will be determined by your skilled therapists.  New collagen and elastin will be stimulated throughout the dermal skin layers minimising fine line and wrinkles, acne scarring, pigmentation, stretch marks and is an excellent overall treatment for clients concerned at improving general skin laxity or have general ageing concerns. This treatment is also known as collagen induction therapy.

What you can expect in your treatment

After your skin is thoroughly cleansed, you will be advised to apply your prescribed topical anesthetic under therapist supervision to ensure the skin is numbed prior to treatment for comfortability. It is then your skilled therapist will select the appropriate needling depths and commence your treatment. LED light therapy will be added to your treatment to further enhance your results. It is recommended you add the Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen Gel Mask to support the skin post treatment and to further stimulate your dermal skin.
