Transform Your Skin with Skin Needling AKA Collagen Induction Therapy at Elegance Beauty on the Gold Coast
Skincare benefits without the side effects.
Skin Needling is the most effective and safest skin rejuvenation treatment available with out using lasers and or 'going under the knife'. Skin needling by a trained professional has a long list of benefits without the negative side effects that often come with laser treatments and other aggressive heat-based therapaies. Skin needling also know as Collagen Induction Therapy and home (cosmetic) needling have become increasingly popular in Australia for the last few years. When comparing Professional Skin Needling to other available treatments and therapies for anti-ageing, but it is less invasive and has less downtime, making it a safe and effective alternative.
Laser and other skin treatment technologies do not always have positive results. It is important to remember that this industry is often money driven. Some treatments can sacrifice the health of your skin in hopes of improving its appearance. Skin Needing is and effective treatment that takes into consideration both the results achieved today and the long-term effects on skin health. Great looking skin can only be a result of healthy skin by healing it from the inside out.
What makes Skin Needling at our salon at Oxenford on the Gold Coast, such a safe and effective treatment is that it does not use any heat, nor does it remove the top layer of skin (the epidermis). Skin needling is a mechanical treatment that promotes proper skin healing, preserves the barrier of the skin, and improves skin health. Skin Needling does not compromise the skin in any way. Most important, Skin Needling results in the release of three key growth factors that promote natural, scarless collagen as opposed to scar collagen.
The Procedure- Needling the Skin.
Skin Needling involves the use traditionally of a roller with 192 surgical grade stainless steel needles that range in length from 1mm to 2mm. The device is rolled over the skin, creating micro-channels in both layers of the skin.
We at Elegance Beauty use the latest in Skin Needling Technology where unlike traditional skin needling rollers, our Mechanical Skin Needling Pen causes less trauma and has minimal skin damage, therefore reducing pain and discomfort, making it a safer, more effective treatment. Our Skin Needling pen is more accurate than the traditional rollers and uses disposable needles to eliminate risk of cross-contamination, whilst the adjustable needle depths allow for a treatment tailored to your individual needs. Our Skin Needling Therapy Treatment is so advanced, that it is even suitable and safe to use in delicate and hard to reach areas such as around the eyes and lips and on the nose.
Numbing cream is used for your comfort. After the treatment, your skin will appear sunburned and feel windswept, which will subside over the next four to 24 hours depending on the depth of needles used. The redness can be covered with mineral make-up as soon as the next day. The downtime is very minimal. We also offer to our client that for optimal result, two weeks post treatment, you may then use an at home roller on a weekly basis to continue building healthy, vibrant skin. Our at home roller uses 0.2mm length needles that are safe for home use without over traumatising the skin.
A Safe, Effective Alternative to Lasers
The penetration of the needling triggers the release of key growth factors that promote scarless wound healing and triggers collagen synthesis leading to normally woven collagen. Skin Needling does not cause a negative loss of dermal papillae, destroy the melanocyte, or form abnormal collagen – like ablative lasers do. The surface of the skin remains intact so the risks are very minimal; skin heals quickly and there is minimal downtime. Re-surfacing lasers destroy the surface layer, leading to substantial downtime and higher risks. The needling does not damage the skin but rather leads to thicker, healthier skin. It is a cost-effective option compared to laser treatments. Full face treatment is only $229, where laser treatments are upwards of $1,000.
The number of Skin Needling sessions required depends on your skin concerns and goals. This will be determined during your complimentary skin consultation. The treatments are performed six weeks apart. Skin Needling can be performed on the face, neck, chest and other body parts.
