It is a great alternative to laser treatment and fantastic for lip lines, acne scarring, general lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, red veins and stretch marks. Its huge in the USA as its regarded as the best way to induce collagen in the skin.

What is Collagen Induction Therapy using Medical Needling and how does it work?

The principle of skin needling is to stimulate the body's own production of collagen. It involves using a sterile roller comprised of a series of fine, sharp needles to puncture the skin. Performed under local anaesthetic, the device is "rolled" over the surface of the face to create many microscopic channels deep into the dermis of the skin, which stimulate your own body to produce new collagen.
There are different types of devices ranging from models with a needle length of only 0.02mm to rollers with needles of 1.5mm designed to be used as a professional treatment by trained medical practitioners like Andie.
Collagen induction therapy using Medical needling has created great interest in the cosmetic community because of its effectiveness, minimal downtime, ease of use, and levels of client satisfaction.
It has been used successfully to treat fine lines, wrinkles, lax and sun-damaged skin; to reduce the appearance of stretch marks; and to improve acne, post burn and ice pick scars. It has also been used after liposuction to tighten skin. The advantages of this procedure are the skin becomes thicker with more than a 400% increase in collagen deposition; any part of the body can be treated; and needling can be performed on all skin types.

What happens during the treatment and how long will it take to recover?

Your first discussion with Andie should clearly set out your expectations and what Andie thinks will happen to your skin as a result of a course of collagen induction therapy using medical needling.
An important part of the treatment is the preparation of the skin prior to the procedure with therapeutic doses of vitamins A and C. This significantly reduces downtime and client discomfort. It is very important to continue using the topical creams for at least 6 months post-procedure to ensure the production of healthy collagen and elastin. We recommend using the Environ range of creams for use with this treatment.

The skin will be numbed using a special cream for around half an hour prior to treatment. The treatment times can range from 10-60 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. Afterwards, the skin is usually pink or red and occasionally there may be minor bruising. You should, however, be able to return to work the following day. Clients who have an exceptionally aggressive treatment (for severe lines or scarring) may take slightly longer to recover.

Although noticeable improvements can be obtained with a single medical needling treatment, multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve the best results. The effects are cumulative as new collagen production is stimulated in the deep layers of the skin. The number of treatments required varies and will be determined by your practitioner.

Are there any risks involved with Collagen Induction Therapy using medical needling?

Because we use numbing cream, we aim to ensure that the procedure is as pain free as possible – however, you may feel slightly uncomfortable when the roller is applied to the face. Medical needling usually causes some redness of the skin and occasionally bruising for the first 1 - 2 days. However, the skin heals rapidly because minimal damage is done to the outer layer of skin.

Complications after medical needling may include:

  • Transient redness/itchiness of the skin
  • Minor flaking, dryness and rarely scabbing may occur for a few days following treatment.
  • Very rarely hyperpigmentation (mild darkening of areas of the skin) – this normally resolves after a month.
  • Small white dots (milia) may occasionally form – these can be removed by your practitioner.

If you have a history of herpes simplex blisters or cold sores, a reactivation of this condition may occur in the treated area and there is the possibility of skin infection any time a skin procedure is performed. However, as the epidermis (outer layer of skin) has only been partially disrupted, this is very unlikely to occur.

Who is not suitable for treatment with Collagen Induction Therapy using medical needling?

This treatment is suitable for most skin types.
Medical needling is not suitable for those clients who:

  • Have used Roaccutane within the last 3 months
  • Have open wounds, cuts, abrasions
  • Have had radiation treatment within the last year
  • Have a current outbreak of Herpes (cold sores) or any other infection or chronic skin condition in the area to be treated
  • Have areas of the skin that are numb or lack sensation
  • Are pregnant or breast feeding
  • Have a history of keloid or hypertrophic scars or poor wound healing

What results can I expect?

Results vary depending on the indication and your skin condition prior to treatment. Most people will see observable results from 1 – 2 months following the initial treatment – these results are often enhanced with subsequent treatments.
Most people will require 2 treatments spaced three months apart in order to get a good response in conjunction with the "at home" treatment regimen.
