Collagen Induction/Enhancement Therapy
At our Nelson Surgery, we use this technique of medical micro-needling, which has been shown to increase the remodelling of the skin to enhance skin rejuvenation. By using multiple needles that pierce the skin, activating the body’s own healing process, micro-needling enhances rejuvenation results. Microneedling can also assist with collagen treatments. Contact us today to find out more.
While it takes six weeks for new collagen formation, and about six months for the full effect of the treatments, the common response by patients after the initial treatment is that their skin has a ‘glow’ and need less make-up.
More on the uses for Micro-Needling:
Collagen Enhancement Therapy is an effective adjunctive treatment combination for:
- Tightening and toning skin
- Reduce acne, ice pick and chickenpox scarring
- Stretch marks
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Treating alopecia
- Reduce the dimpling effect of cellulite
Furthermore, we can get even better rejuvenation results by combining micro-needling and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). This treatment combination enhances the natural wound healing process, using your own Growth Factors. We can use hyaluronic acid as an alternative treatment to enhance Collagen Enhancement Therapy (CET).
Micro-needling for scar reduction works by releasing old fibrotic scar tissue deep within the skin. In combination with new collagen and elastin fibres, scars become softer. We can generally see results within six weeks with 70-80% improvement in the appearance of scars.
Using multiple needles that vertically pierce the skin, Dermapen enhances rejuvenation results and is far safer for you because there is much less epidermal damage. The automatic vibrating function of the Dermapen increases the effectiveness of treatments, by increasing absorption of products, meanwhile reducing pain and discomfort.
Finally, Dermapen can be as effective as ablative treatments such as Fraxel, IPL, Laser Resurfacing and Chemical Peels. This will certainly require more treatments over time.
