Its coming to that time of the year we can start thinking about a winter treatment plan for our sun-kisssed skins. A lot of our clients have already begun their course of Collagen Induction Therapy treatments to enhance the Skin rejuvenation process.
Dermal Rolling or Collagen Induction Therapy procedure works by stimulating your own body’s collagen. Your body will start to naturally regenerate the skin, working below the surface in the dermis.
New skin cells are generated & blood supply is enhanced. It will only take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration are seen & the process will continue over the following months, providing you with a gradual & long lasting enhancement.
Dermal Rolling (or Skin Needling) uses fine, micro-needles to stimulate tissue regeneration. This treatment is a perfect treatment for skins which are dull, uneven, looking lifeless, pigmentation, wrinkles, post acne scarring, stretch marks.
Prior to any Collagen Induction Therapy being performed a Total Face Consultation is done with Renee to ensure your skin is 100% prepped and ready for treatment. Depending on your skin a Pigment Inhibitor will be necessary to be used 3 weeks prior to treatment to ensure the formation of new or existing pigmentation isn't enhanced
How the Procedure is performed
Your skin is double cleansed, and prepped free of make up, and natural skin oils. A topical numbing cream is applied to ensure there is no feeling and left on the skin for 45minutes to ensure it is in full effect. The treatment itself takes around 30minutes to complete, total treatment time is approximately 1.5hours.
Post Collagen Induction Therapy your skin is slightly red and feels like you've just been in the sun. Directly after your treatment a topical hydrating serum will be applied followed by a SPF 30, No make up is allowed to be worn 6 hours post treatment as the fine channels made on the skin will still be open. It is ideal to use a soft gentle cleanser for the next 48hours and avoid all active serums for 4 days as this will create sensitivity on the skin. Keep the skin hydrated and ensure the skin is protected with a SPF 30 daily.
