Collagen Stimulation Therapy
How does it work?
The procedure involved in treatment is commonly known as Micro Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy and is designed to trigger new collagen synthesis in the skin, leading to younger, brighter and healthier-looking skin. As you move the device over your skin, numerous, ultra-fine micro-needles designed to penetrate through the epidermis create microscopic punctures on the skin’s surface. By opening the skin in this way you not only dramatically increase the penetration of any topical product, increasing its efficacy, but you also create miniature perforations that stimulate the skin’s healing mechanisms, increasing production of many important factors for a healthy skin.
Great benefits of the microneedling:
- Safer and more effective in piercing the skin than traditional skin needling rollers
- Has a superior effect on collagen and elastin rejuvenation
- Multi-speed and adjustable needle depth
- Highest effectiveness
- Effectively treat hard-to-reach places
- Promotes scar-less healing and natural collagen reproduction
The concept of Micro Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage, such as cuts, burns and other abrasions. Immediately after an injury occurs to the skin, our body reuses the damaged collagen and elastin fibres as well as other damaged skin components to produce new ones. Micro Skin Needling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self repair mechanism by creating micro-injuries in the skin which trigger new collagen synthesis, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring.
What can it do for me?
Microneedling enhance the penetration of active ingredients from your topical creams and serums, leading to a massive increase in their efficacy. Microneedling in conjunction with cosmeceuticals stimulates new collagen production, thereby leading to a visible reduction of wrinkles and scars, as well as increase in skin firmness. Thickening of the skin caused by regular use of the Skin Needling device significantly reduces the visibility of broken capillaries as well as uneven pigmentation. Expect to see a visible improvement in skin appearance after just one month of regular use of the device.
What happens post treatment?
When our practitioner will use microneedling pen, procedure will cause no or only small marks, and the marks will fade in just a few hours. Microneedling treatments may cause a flush to your skin that will fade in a few hours, but will leave no long-lasting redness.
Is Micro Skin Needling safe?
Micro Skin Needling does not involve injections and therefore allergic reactions and side-effects are unlikely. It is minimally invasive, involves minimal or no downtime, rapid healing and requires simple aftercare. Microneedling devices used at Forever Clinic are the latest skin rejuvenation techniques to help restore a healthy, flawless and youthful appearance to the skin.
Safe, simple and Effective Treatment
Unsightly scars appear less obvious Helps to smooth away wrinkles, line, folds and skin ageing related concerns Dramatically increased absorption of active ingredients Efficacy of active skincare products maximised.
Microneedling works through two modes of action:
The needles penetrate through the skin to provide micro-channels to maximise the absorption of the topically applied skincare product The micro-channels induce independent stimulation of new collagen and elastin synthesis, resulting from the skin’s natural healing response. Ultimately, skin strength, structure and resilience.
