Collagen Induction (Micro-needling)
$1800 for a course of six treatments. An Advanced Skin Consultation with our skin specialists is a prerequisite for Collagen Induction, $55, redeemable on treatments booked on the day.
Collagen Induction Therapy, also known as micro-needling and dermal needling, is a revolutionary approach to anti-ageing. It stimulates the body’s own natural collagen repair and growth processes to significantly improve skin tone, texture and impurities. It is a very cost-effective treatment with minimal or zero downtime and is safe and effective.
Micro-needling utilises and enhances the body’s own natural response to healing. A sterile roller with hundreds of tiny 1mm micro needles makes tiny pinpricks when passed over the skin. This causes skin cells to make new growth factors, collagen and elastin, which in turn make skin smoother, firmer and more radiant.
Unlike some other treatments, it treats the entire face and is gentle enough to be used around the eye area.
Results can be visible within a week of treatment. Your skin will progressively improve over the next few months as the healing process that rebuilds your own natural collagen and elastin continues and replaces your damaged tissue. Optimal improvement is seen six months after your treatment course has finished.
Collagen Induction is suitable for all skin types and colours. It reduces wrinkles, fine lines and helps with lack of firmness, enlarged pores, acne scarring, stretch marks and sun damage. It also encourages the disappearance of red veins and diffused redness.
A topical anaesthetic is applied before the procedure to minimise discomfort. Most of our clients describe a mild ‘prickling’ sensation as the roller is passed over your skin. The treatment is not painful.
Vitamins A and C are critical to Collagen Therapy. After the rolling process, Vitamins A and C are then applied and can penetrate into the lower layers of the skin.
Multiple sessions are recommended depending on the condition of the skin as well as the size of the area being treated. A course of 6 treatments is recommended for Skin Rejuvenation. Your appointment time is usually 2 hours and treatments are done 1 week apart. The treatment area must be prepared with Vitamin A and C a minimum of 2 to 3 weeks prior to the first treatment (Environ C-quence or AVST moisturisers include these ingredients).
You will experience mild sensitivity, inflammation and redness after treatment – these are signs that the fine microneedles have penetrated the epidermis. The tiny perforations in the skin close within minutes and the sensitivity and redness is gone in 2 to 5 hours. In very rare cases, bruising may occur. Plan your day to be quiet and stay out of the sun. There is generally no downtime and clients usually return to work within 12 to 24 hours.
It is recommended that you follow up your treatment with Environ homecare. For even better results pair this with an Environ .2mm Cosmetic or Gold Roll-CITs – home rolling can commence whenever the sensitivity/redness is alleviated. We recommend rolling two times per week to begin, slowly building up to every night.
