At our beauty salon the Brow and Skin Studio in Brisbane, we have introduced over the past 18 months, the very successful Collagen Induction into our beauty therapy services with wow-factor results!
The concept of Collagen Induction Therapy is based on wound healing, the skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, burns and other abrasions. Immediately after an injury to the skin our body reuses the damaged collagen and elastin fibres as well as other damaged skin components to produce new ones. Collagen Induction Therapy allows for controlled stimulation of the skin’s self repair mechanism by creating micro channels in the skin which triggers new collagen synthesis. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin. Collagen Induction Therapy is a process carried out with our m.pen.pro device & disposable medical grade stainless steel needle tips. These needles penetrate the upper layers of the skin. This process has two major benefits. It effectively stimulates collagen formation at the same time as providing a clear channel for topical serums to be absorbed more effectively through the top layer (epidermis) of skin. Collagen Induction Therapy creates a very minor (almost microscopic) trauma which lasts for a short period of time and does not result in bruising or swelling in the treated area.
Collagen Induction therapy, Micro-Needling or Skin Needling (all the same) is intended to
- minimise fine lines & wrinkles
- reduce pore size
- improve skin texture
- reduce scarring & pigmentation
- increase natural collagen & elastin growth
As your Skin Therapist performs this treatment across your skin, it makes pinpoint punctures into the dermis – most of which are simply temporarily opening your pores. Your body perceives this as damage, which triggers the release of growth factors that, in turn, stimulate the production of elastin and collagen. The human body is designed to react to any injury by initiating the healing process, but usually it will just mend as far as it has to keep you in good health – which is very different to healing to a cosmetic level. By persistently triggering this healing process, you encourage your skin to keep repairing until the job is completed.
We use the Mesoestetic m.pen.pro which is a medical device used by skin professionals world wide. Their results are outstanding.
If you are after a skin treatment that truly delivers and want the wow-factor, Collagen Induction is it! For more information please call Sherril or Rhiannon. We would love to answer any questions you may have.
