Collagen Induction Therapy (also known as dermal rolling or skin needling), is a skin treatment that aims to improve texture, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, scarring and skin tightness, by encouraging the production of collagen.
Collagen is essential for healthy, plump skin, however as we age, our collagen production slows which can cause skin to lose firmness and sag.
Collagen Induction Therapy is suitable for most people. It uses a dermal roller consisting of extremely fine needles. These cause pin pricks within the dermis (secondary) layer of the skin. When our skin is damaged, it starts to produce additional collagen tissue, which is stronger, and firmer than before. Over a course of treatments collagen fibres are strengthened and the skin becomes stronger, smoother, and firmer, with improved texture.
For the greatest improvement in your skin, we recommend a course of treatments combined with Microdermabrasion to prepare the skin. A series of treatments is available on Reformaskin®, our results focused skin correcting treatment programme.
The downtime is relatively short, in fact most people notice the redness and swelling reduce in a few hours. We also apply a topical anaesthetic to make the treatments it’s self as comfortable as possible.
