Skin needling, or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), stimulates your skin to produce more of its own collagen to improve texture, tone and elasticity. It can greatly reduce:
- Smoker’s lines
- Large pores
- Scars (acne, burns, surgical)
- Stretch marks
- Skin damage & pigmentation
How it works.
DermaPen is a painless, non-invasive procedure that uses Advanced Oscillating Vertical Needling (AOVN™) technology with disposable tips, each containing surgical grade stainless steel microderm needles that painlessly penetrate the skin, creating micro-channels.
This stimulates collagen-producing cells and allows the active ingredients of topical products to penetrate deeper into skin for a more intense rejuvenation. Your skin’s appearance takes on a natural glow and scars and wrinkles naturally fade away.
How soon will I see results?
Most people see an improvement after the first treatment, with significant regeneration and revitalisation occurring after 4 to 6 treatments for very damaged skin.
However, you’ll see the best results around 6 to 8 weeks after treatment when your collagen begins to rebuild and better tone, texture and elasticity will be increasingly visible over the next 12 months.
Will it hurt?
Although we apply numbing cream to the treated area 30 minutes prior to skin needling, sometimes there is still discomfort. However, some people comment the procedure is relaxing – so it may depend on your pain threshold.
What can I expect after a treatment?
There is little downtime required for this treatment. Immediately afterwards your skin may appear red and slightly tender, much like mild sunburn. We offer a complimentary application of Oxygenetix foundation to camouflage this redness – it also contains properties to soothe and heal your skin.
The following day, your skin may appear light brown. Some people may experience a light shedding or peel.
