COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY
Collagen induction therapy (CIT) is an aesthetic medical procedure that involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles (microneedling the skin) in order to induce endogenous production of cutaneous collagen.
CIT is often referred to as "microneedling" or "skin needling"
The procedure usually involves a specialized device which can take the form of a manual rolling device or an automated stamping device. At Exquisite Laser Clinic we are proud to use the latest in Collagen Induction Therapy the "edermastamp" for more information please contact us for an indepth consultation.
At Exquisite Laser Clinic we offer the Dermastamp. Dermaroller, are true market leaders in skin needling. We are very successful with results. Dermaroller have now evolved this technology and are very excited to introduce the NEW Dermastamp to you. Clinically proven to stimulate the skin and help reduce the appearance of scarring, German engineered, Dermaroller has developed a stamping device that increases skin stimulation and takes standard skin needling to a new level. The Dermastamp uses vertical penetration to create infusion channels into the skin to instantly create hydration with hyaluronic acid and infuse skin stimulating ingredients.
"Feed your face and instantly stimulate it!"
Dermastamp uses very fine needles to promote skin stimulation and skin rejuvenation. This is unlike any heat based technology as there is no skin burning and skin coagulation. The side effects are dramatically reduced and the risk, almost zero.
What is a Dermastamp treatment?
The Dermastamp is a vibrational stamping device, unlike a manual handheld roller.
How is the procedure performed, and does it hurt?
The skin is cleaned and sterilized. Generally the skin will need to be numbed to ensure your comfort. Therefore the treatment is considered painless. The tip will glide over your skin creating stimulating channels and an even flushing is the best indication for a perfect medical treatment. The treatment usually takes around 60 minutes in total.
Can it be performed on any skin colour?
Since we are not using heat, yes the Dermastamp can be used on any skin colour and skin type.
How long before I see results?
You will notice a fresher skin within 6 weeks. However your skin will continue to improve over 6-12mths.
How often can I have the Dermstamp:
- For Collagen + Skin Rejuvenation - 4-6 treatments / 4 wks apart
- For Scars + Acne Scar Reduction - 6+ treatment / 4 wks apart
Should you expect downtime from this treatment?
The inflammatory reaction of the skin is extremely short and fades significantly within hours from redness to pinkish that may last from 12 to 24 hours on average. In order to reduce visible redness and to enhance the results of the treatment we recommend the post needling care kit. These products need to be used for 7 days following each treatment.
What should you avoid afterwards? Nothing stimulating!
You must avoid AHA’s, retinol (vitamin A) or anything acidic or ‘active’ for a minimum of 5 days. Avoid exercise for 24 hours.
What should you use on your skin afterwards?
Only use a soothing cleanser to clean, hyaluronic acid to help hydrate as your skin will become very dry. Copper + Zinc to help heal and protect.
Can you increase results at home?
Dermaroller recommends their homecare roller system to help stimulate the skin and help penetrate ingredients deeper into it. Use every second day or even just up to once a week to see results.
