Advanced Skin Treatments

If you focus on regular skin treatments then you wont need to wear everyday make up


Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), also known as medical skin needling or micro- needling, is a new minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment designed to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, rosacea, some pigmentation as well as scars on the face and body. The result is smoother, thicker, tighter, more even toned skin. This process stimulates the body’s natural collagen production by generating a “wound healing” response.

By wounding the skin you encourage the body to produce new collagen and elastin, which helps it thicken and ‘plump up’. CIT is the only skin rejuvenation treatment to target and regulate 3 key skin cells (keratinocyte, melanocyte and fibroblast) without compromising the integrity of the epidermis. The procedure can be performed on the face and body. New collagen production can be further increased by the use of a good skin care range.


  • CIT stimulates your body’s own collagen production in the dermal layer which is where collagen resides and is formed.
  • Results are natural, not fake or plastic looking.
  • No foreign substances are injected.
  • Skin becomes thicker. Collagen and elastin increase up to 1000 percent.
  • Any part of the body may be treated.
  • The healing period is short (1-2 days).*
  • Less expensive and more effective than laser treatments .
  • Safe for people with darker skin, very low % of hyper-pigmentation (dark spots) risk.
  • Effective on peri - and post-menopausal women.
  • Safe for individuals who have had laser resurfacing.
  • Changes may occur in dilated blood vessels that may cause them to disappear.
  • Use of topical numbing agents makes the procedure comfortable 
* Some treatments take longer to heal (4-5 days) if the hand-held device is employed.

1Am I a suitable candidate?
Collagen Induction Therapy is suitable for all skin types, and ideal candidates are those who wish to improve skin laxity, smooth lines and wrinkles, slow the onset of the ageing process or improve the appearance of scarring from acne, also helps to strengthen weakened capillary walls that cause diffused redness (rosacea). You must wait for six months if you have been using any of the Accutane family.
2Does it hurt?
Before a medical skin needling treatment, a topical anaesthetic is usually applied to minimise any discomfort
3What happens during the treatment?
Using the device follow a pattern of 3 passes over the skin to create evenly spaced puncture wounds. The length of the needles on the pen will vary depending on how deep into the skin the needles need to penetrate – generally, the deeper the penetration, the more dramatic results you will see. Treatment can take anywhere between 10-60 minutes, depending on the area you are having treated.
4Is there any downtime?
After Collagen Induction Therapy treatment, the client’s skin will usually be slightly pink and they may experience some mild bleeding and bruising depending on the length of the needle used during the treatment. The downtime with this treatment is very quick and recovery is between 24-72 hours.
5How many treatments will I need?
A series of 2-5 treatments is usually recommended to achieve maximum results and as the results rely on kick-starting the body’s own collagen production, it can take 4-8 weeks before you start to fully see the benefits. It is also often advised to use cosmeceutical grade skincare at home to enhance results.
6What are the risks and complications associated with Collagen Induction Therapy?
Risks and complications associated with this treatment are minimal but can include: • Scab formation • Slight discoloration post-treatment. • Flaking or dryness of the skin • The appearance of white spots, known as milia • The appearance of dark patches on the skin, known as hyper-pigmentation • An outbreak of cold sores in previous suffers • Any complications with this treatment are rare and can be easily resolved in most cases. • Any side effects of Collagen Induction Therapy should subside within a week or so
  • Wait 2 weeks after Botox before needling.
  • Wait 6 months after finishing any of the Accutane family before starting needling.
  • After IPL or laser, wait 2 weeks before needling.
  • Peels should be performed 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after needling.
  • No facial waxing 12 hours before needling.
  • Don’t shave 12 hours before skin needling.
  • Sun protection must be worn, no compliance - no treatment.
  • Mineral makeup can be worn after treatment.
  • Use a gentle cleanser, serum and moisturizer for 1-2 days after needling.
  • No swimming for 48 hours after needling.
  • No retinols or acids for 72 hours after needling.
  • No exercise for 24 hours after needling.
  • No solarium or spray tanning for 2-3 days after needling.
  • No waxing for 5 days post treatment.
  • Wait 12-24 hours after needling to shave (depending on skin trauma).


Microdermabrasion, also referred to as mechanical exfoliation or micro resurfacing, is a method for facial rejuvenation that uses a mechanical medium for exfoliation along with adjustable suction to sweep away the outermost layer of dead skin cells from the epidermis. It is a non-invasive procedure. The exfoliation and suctioning disrupts the skin’s surface, causing cell division. As the skin cells divide fibroblast activity is stimulated leading to collagen production, which leads to thicker, firmer skin. Human skin sloughs off at a slower rate with age, so the exfoliation of several layers of the stratum corneum (surface skin layers) leaves skin fresh and radiant.

Moderate usage of Diamond Dermabrasion, accompany with skin products that penetrate through top skin layer that reach the dermis level, helps replenish natural nutrients, restore cell activity, promote skin health, enhance elasticity and texture resulting in a more youthful appearance.


Microdermabrasion is an effective treatment for the following skin concerns;

  • Congested, oily and clogged skin
  • Open pores, blackheads and white heads
  • Acne prone skin
  • Acne scarring
  • Pigmentation and blemishes
  • Age spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • Scar tissue
  • Premature ageing

2How does it work?

Microdermabrasion is usually prescribed to treat a range of skin abnormalities or irregularities. It is used for skin resurfacing where the surface of the skin requires renewal, usually for aesthetic reasons.
