Micro-Needling (Collagen Induction Therapy / Dermapen)

Micro-Needling (Collagen Induction Therapy / Dermapen)

Collagen Induction Therapy (or CIT for short) is a unique treatment that uses micro-needles (typically loaded into a Dermapen) to gently glide over the skin. These needles create tiny punctures in the surface of the skin that trigger an immune response, and subsequently the production of new collagen.

The treatment can go by many names including Micro-Needling, Skin-Needling, Dermapen or as we've just referred to it, Collagen Induction Therapy and while all of these names can be used interchangeably, there can also be differences in how the treatments are performed.

The punctures produced during a micro-needling treatment also act as pathways for topical nutrients to be infused deep within your skin to correct your concerns. We use Hyalauron which works to alleviate dry skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and speeds up wound healing.

CIT is a minimally invasive treatment that can provide relatively quick results in firming your skin and leaving you feeling rejuvenated.

Collagen Induction Therapy has many benefits which include:

  • Improved skin appearance;
  • Firmer feeling skin;
  • Reduces the appearance of pores;
  • Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.

Not just for the face, skin needling can be used on the neck and decolletage, as well as body areas; in particular for the back of hands to reduce the signs of aging and the stomach and thighs to help with cellulite and stretch marks.

Although the treatment can be performed without it, we highly encourage the use of numbing cream before the treatment so we can work to a depth that will typically be too painful without.

CIT Treatments include:
Includes: numbing cream, dermapen (via micro-needling) face & neck treatment + consultation.
*Note: additional charges may incur if recommended for intensive treatment.

What to expect at your treatment?

We highly recommend using a numbing cream prior to your treatment. We include this with our treatment packs, however, you are more than welcome to apply your own just before your appointment if you prefer.

Depending if you choose to add a skin prep treatment such as microdermbrasion or dermaplaning prior to your Dermapen session (either of which we highly encourage for the best results!), your therapist will start with a quick cleansing the skin. After cleansing and exfoliating and once the numbing cream has come into effect your aesthetician will begin your Dermapen treatment.

For the treatment you will have a handheld wand run over your face (or other treatment area) typically in a small circular motion. It is not uncommon to draw blood from the process in certain areas, in particular if you have thin skin. Please be assured your equipment is fully sterilised prior to use and all needles are single use only.

Once finished we will apply a finishing ointment such as paw paw to calm the skin and depending on your package may put you under an LED.

After Care

Your skin may be sensitive after your treatment and as such you need to treat it with care. Use a gentle cleanser to wash your skin (like Cetaphil) and if possible avoid applying makeups like foundations for 24-48 hours after treatment.

It is extremely important to avoid direct sun for at least 48 hours after a skin needling session.
Always apply an SPF to your skin, especially in our beautiful Gold Coast climate and after having a skin treatment.

How many treatments will I need?

Regular micro-needling treatments spaced 4-8 weeks apart is optimal for your skin health.
Check with your aesthetician to advise how often you should rebook based on your skin type.

How long until I see results?

Your skin will typically begin to feel firmer or tighter within 24hours of your treatment. As the redness decreases after 24-48 hours you should notice a difference in the texture of your skin.

Get the best out of your treatment

  • Add a Skin Prep Treatment

    For the best results, we recommend prepping your skin with an express microdermabrasion or dermaplaning to get your skin ready for your treatment.

  • Prepare to Return

    As much as we'd love just one session to be enough, with any skin treatment consistency is key in achieving your skin goals.
    Regular treatments will give you optimal results.

  • Go Beyond the Face

    The neck and decolletage can often be forgotten about but they are just as important! Consider adding these to your treatment area.
