Collagen Induction Therapy / Skin Needling/
This technique is used all over the world to smooth out wrinkles and rejuvenate the skin to create a stronger, firmer healthier skin. Needling will flatten out and relax scars and can be performed on all skin colours and types.
We need to target the intermediate reticular layer as it has the highest number of stem cells, when injury occurs each treatment triggers the production of collagen which fills the depressed scars and deep wrinkles. This “damage” to the dermis encourages the body to produce more new collagen and elastin which generate new skin cells to literally “repair” itself, thus the skin becomes thicker, plumper and more youthful.
What distinguishes it from other treatments such as laser, is that it has no down time, recovery is quick, it can target areas laser cannot and it is cost effective compared to other treatments or surgery and reduced risk of infection.
Skin needling stimulating Collagen and Elastin production to thicken the skin thereby erasing wrinkles, stretch marks and smoothing Acne scars.
Skin needling is used clinically in these cases:
Restore skin tightness
Restore skin texture
Reducing fine lines and deep wrinkles
Scar camouflage from hair transplant
Face lift scar camouflage the edge of skin graft scars
Do you have a bumpy scar from trauma or surgery? We can smooth out raised, bumpy scars to lie smooth and blend it to your natural skin tone if needed.
Skin needling stimulates the release of growth factors that build up natural collagen and elastin in the area that’s being treated. The skin is red with a light grazing for 2-3 days. Generally you will be able to return to normal activities within 24hrs and mineral makeup can be worn to cover any redness. Treatment effects are cumulative and will usually be seen within 6-8 weeks of each treatment.
To achieve significant results, several treatments are required at 3 month intervals. Results will depend on the depth of your concern. This is an excellent method of collagen induction as the epidermis and melanocytes in the deep layer of the skin are not damaged so there is no possibility of post inflammatory hyper pigmentation.
This is a fantastic treatment for wrinkles. A completely safe alternative to Botox. The specific number of sessions required will depend on the area being treated and the severity of the indication, as well as the level of natural response from the individual’s body.
In the case of wrinkles associated with ageing skin, one or two refresher skin needling treatments are recommended every year.
X-DNA Gel Anti-Ageing Gel & DNA Liquid Anti-Ageing Solution. A natural polymer with excellent antioxidant and moisturizing capabilities that protect the cell membranes from oxidative degradation. Its capacity to restore dead cells and reconstruct connective tissue stimulates the healing processes. Nucleic acid combats collagen destruction caused by sun rays, oxidative stress and tobacco. As well as being used in anti-ageing treatments to fight photoageing, X-DNA Gel also enhances the skin of smokers and is able to improve a variety of conditions such as dry skin, wrinkles, stretch marks and hair loss.
Polyvitamins Nutritive Solution is a powerful vitamin complex that delivers deep dermonutrition. It supplies essential energizing elements that stimulate the skin cells’ natural processes.
The vitamins A, C, E combined with B-Complex fight against devitalized dermal appearance. Skin’s texture is smoothed by this highly antioxidant cocktail, balancing cutanous nutritional deficiencies caused by external and internal factors.
Vitamin C, a revitalizing antioxidant solution. A very effective antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals – the unstable molecules that age the skin as a result of pollution, smoking and exposure to the sun. It inhibits melanin, stimulates growth of the hydro-lipid film and enhances collagen synthesis, an important skin protein that strengthens the structural support and elasticity of the skin. Vitamin C Revitalizing & Antioxidant Solution is used mainly to treat and prevent photoageing, uneven complexions and for helping the skin to fight wrinkles.
Amino acids are natural products, versatile in behaviour and functions. These include the synthesis of new collagen or fibroblasts. Amino Acids Essential Solution includes: Ala, Arg, Asp, Cys, Gln, Gly, His, Ile, Leu, Lys, Phe, Pro, Ser, Tau and Thr.
The result is a revitalized, regenerated and restructured skin, with increased flexibility and elasticity, more luminous and improved texture.
Glycolic Acid, a brightening solution, is the most common alpha hydroxy acid (AHA). It stimulates new growth of skin, collagen and elastin. As well as working to diminish brown spots and hyperpigmentation, it also reduces fine lines, wrinkles, acne, scars and other signs of ageing. Glycolic Acid Brightening Solution prevents dead cells from clumping together, thus increasing cell turnover. The skin appears bright and rejuvenated, reflecting a healthy glow.
