Collagen Induction Therapy

 

Dermastamp is an exciting technology that is scientifically proven to induce collagen formation. It uses vibrational vertical penetration to create infusion channels into the skin. Hyaluronic acid is then infused for deep hydration and collagen formation is activated. This promotes tissue stimulation and skin rejuvenation.

Since there is no heat or ablative energy (laser), the treatment can be used on any skin colour and skin type. Collagen will grow from around 6 weeks afterwards, and continue to improve over 6 months. New blood vessels are also formed and this gives the skin new sources of nourishment. Both the dermis and epidermis becomes thickened. The result is improved skin texture and reduction in wrinkles.

This treatment is beneficial for: tissue regeneration; skin rejuvenation; collagen induction; scar reduction; fine lines & wrinkles; pore size reduction; and acne scarring. Multiple treatments may be required depending on the skin condition, 6-8 weeks. 

Allow 60 minutes

What are the benefits?

This treatment stimulates the skin to produce collagen as well as reduce scarring. It improves the thickness of the dermis and epidermis. This helps to improve skin texture and reduce fine lines. Over time, blood vessels are also stimulated to generate and this helps to improve the availability of nutrients to the skin. This has a positive effect on hyperpigmentation, acne scars, wrinkles, and pore size.   

 Who is it suitable for? How safe is it?

The treatment is safe for all skin types. Unlike heat based technology, there is no skin burning or coagulation. Hence the side-effects are dramatically reduced and the risk is minimal. You may experience some redness of the skin for a few days after treatment, similar to a sunburn.

 What is the procedure?

The basis of treatment is micro-needling. Our treatment protocol is designed to give you results by combining the best of different modalities. The face is first cleaned and exfoliated using our HydraFacial. The skin is then numbed with anaesthetic cream. The Dermastamp is then used to creat fine micro-channels into the skin. This induces growth factors to begin to work. These micro-channels are then utilized to infuse active ingredients to work deep within the skin. This may include: hyaluronic acid (to hydrate and moisturise), PRP (platelet rich plasma), and CGF (concentrated growth factors from your own Stem Cells).

 What is the Dermastamp?

The Dermastamp is a vibrational stamping device used to create fine micro-channels into the skin. This is also known as micro-needling.

Are all micro-needling devices the same?

No. Collagen induction relies on stimulation of your body’s healing potential without actually causing a wound that it needs to repair. It also requires rapid change in cellular polarity. This is influenced by: the direction of the micro-needles (rolling vs vertical), the speed it moves at, depth of penetration, shape of the micro-needles, and conductivity of the micro-needles. The Dermastamp is a premium micro-needling device.  

 How many treatments are needed?

The amount of treatment needed depends on your initial skin condition. Most people require 3 to 6 treatments done at 6 week intervals. As the treatment stimulates new collagen growth, results are noticeable around the 6 week mark. Improvements from a single treatment usually continues for 6 months.
