Collagen Induction Therapy, also known as Microneedling, stimulates collagen production by causing microtrauma to the upper epidermal layer of the skin. This causes a wound-healing response that induces tissue remodelling, by releasing growth factors that stimulate cell renewal. It has been evidenced to produce substantial improvement in the appearance of skin texture, reduce the appearance of scars, and stretch marks, and treat wrinkles and pigmentation.

We combine this with the use of clinically effective serums to target specific concerns and further enhance outcomes.

A minimum course of 6 treatments is recommended, spaced 2 to 4 weeks apart, this is due to the skin's recovery pathway consisting of the four stages of wound healing; Haemostasis, Inflammation, Proliferation and Remodelling. As we age this process takes longer and, therefore may require longer rest periods between treatments.

Post-treatment, skin can appear flushed and slightly swollen which can last for a few hours. During the healing process, the skin may feel tight and in some cases may experience some flakiness.

Collagen Induction Therapy remains a safe and effective treatment due to its minimally invasive nature and recovery time and is a great alternative to more invasive laser treatments.
