COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY 60 minutes | $199.99 NECK UPGRADE $25.99
The Dermapen/Micro-Needling also known as Collagen Induction Therapy has created quite some hype across the globe over the last few years and has finally reached the ears of Canadians. This treatment has proven to be so effective in treating acne scars, stretch marks, surgical scars, burnt skin, rosacea, deep wrinkles, loose skin, large pores and even thinning hair and hair loss, that doctors compare results to those of Laser Skin Resurfacing.
The Dermapen is an automated-micro needling therapy system that vertically pierces the skin to naturally stimulate collagen and elastin with minimal epidermal damage. This enhances rejuvenation results and is far safer for the client because there is much less epidermal damage. The automatic, high speed vibrating function of the Dermapen increases the effectiveness of the treatment by rapidly creating multiple insertions, quickly and clinically, dramatically reducing pain and discomfort for the client. A great treatment for all skin types especially clients with acne scarring, enlarged pores and moderate to severe wrinkling.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF MICRO NEEDLING:
- Skin tightening, natural collagen induction, lifting and rejuvenation
- Healing acne scars and wounds
- Improving wrinkles and fine lines
- Open/large pore minimisation
- Aiding penetration of products/treatment solutions
- Hyper Pigmentation
IS IT SAFE?
Skin needling procedures are performed in a safe and precise manner with the use of a new sterile Dermapen needle head each and every time. The needle only penetrates through the epidermis and does not remove it, thus the skin’s natural protective barrier remains intact.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
The procedure is normally completed within 60 minute from start to finish. Before the procedure commences a topical anaesthetic is usually applied to the client’s skin to ensure a virtually painless experience. During the treatment, the practitioner gently glides the Dermapen over the client’s skin to create miniscule sub-cutaneous channels. The pierced epidermis rapidly heals in a matter of hours. After the procedure, the treated skin has the appearance of moderate sunburn, which improves over the next 24 to 48 hours. Breathable make up can be worn immediately after the treatment. The treatment is therefore not only very effective but also very safe with very few (to no) side effects or complications. There is minimal downtime after this treatment as you may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours. Most people are able to return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment.
DOES MICRO-NEEDLING REALLY WORK?
Micro-Needling/DermPen treatments are supported by clinical studies to be effective in non-surgical and non-ablative treatment for a variety of skin conditions. Studies have also shown that Micro-needling is often a better treatment than dermabrasion, chemical peels, and laser resurfacing. They are proven to be just as effective in their ability to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Regular treatments can thicken skin, smooth/improve scars, and minimize fine lines and wrinkles.
