Collagen stimulation therapy is one of the most up to date treatments which can harness your body’s natural healing powers to improve skin health. It is quickly becoming the skin rejuvenation modality of choice achieving visible results for fine lines, sun damage, scarring, slackened skin, uneven skin tone and dilated blood vessels.
The process called ’micro needling’ is delivered with an innovative medical device. The ‘dermal roller’ will produce thousands of microscopic channels in the skin. Each channel will penetrate into the dermis of the skin and will be approximately 0.1mm in width. The tiny channel will close rapidly, enabling the skin to quickly recover. The body reacts to the superficial injury by stimulating the natural healing process. Skin cells around the needle channel release growth signals that increase the proliferation of new cells. Collagen and elastin fibres increase in number, improving the skin quality and helping to repair existing scar tissue.
Following the dermal roller therapy, it can take up to 6-weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair is seen and the process will continue over the following months, providing you with a gradual and long lasting enhancement. A course of three treatments is usually recommended for a period of six weeks between each.

What happens during treatment?
Makeup should be removed. Anaesthetic cream is used to numb the skin for at least 30 minutes to make the procedure comfortable. The dermal roller is carefully applied to the skin in all areas, passing over the surface in different directions until the skin appears red. A moderate pricking sensation may be experienced. During the treatment, potent vitamin serums are massaged into the skin and penetrate down into the dermis where they are able to feed the skin at a deeper, therapeutic level. A cool recovery mask can be applied on completion to soothe and relax.
Immediately following the treatment you will look like you have a moderate sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This will start to subside after 1 – 2 hours and will normally recover on the same day, with only a slight redness the following day. Tepid water is recommended to cleanse during the 48 hours following the procedure and it is advisable not to wear make-up for the first 12 hours. After your first treatment, you will be provided with a cream to help soothe your skin and a UVA/UVB sunscreen, which MUST be applied to avoid the possibility of sun damage during the healing phase.
Dermal roller therapy can significantly improve the appearance of aged and sun damaged skin,
facial lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, and acne scars.

Before and after care
To achieve maximum benefits from collagen stimulation therapy, it is important to understand how to prepare your skin before the procedure. Applying potent vitamin formulas such as A and C before and after treatment greatly enhances the results. The vitamins can be pictured as the workers in the growth ‘factories’ set up by the needling procedure and they will continue to benefit your skin for months after treatment. Research has shown that supporting skin with vitamin A creams increases its thickness by 140%, compared to 100% with needling alone. Additional nutritional collagen support can be gained by taking supplements containing skin nutrients such as those found in the Advanced Nutrition Programme ™ from the International Institute of Anti-ageing.
