Rolling needles into your skin can sound a bit scary, but Collagen Induction (also known as dermal rolling) is safe, relatively non-invasive and is a popular treatment for fine lines and facial scarring.
What is Collagen Induction (dermal rolling or needling)?
Collagen Induction is a skin treatment using a dermal roller consisting of extremely fine needles. These needles create pin pricks within the dermis layer of the skin to create controlled injury. When our skin is damaged, it stimulates the production of additional collagen tissue which is vital for healthy, plump skin. Over a course of treatments, this controlled damage causes skin to become stronger and firmer than before for improved skin texture and appearance.
What does Collagen Induction treat?
Collagen Induction is ideal for those concerned about fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin texture. Facial scarring from severe acne is another concern which can be improved with this treatment.
After a course of Collagen Induction Treatments you can expect:
- Improved skin texture
- Restored Elasticity
- Softer lines
- Increased skin tightness
- Reduced appearance of scarring
How many treatments do I need?
For best results, therapists recommend a course of treatments combined with Microdermabrasion to prepare the skin.
Does it hurt?
Collagen Induction doesn’t hurt as a topical anaesthetic is applied to the skin to make treatments as comfortable as possible.
Do I need down time after the treatment?
Minimal down time is required after Collagen Induction. You may experience redness and swelling post treatment, but these symptoms often reduce in a few hours.
