In my recent blog posts, I wrote about the science behind collagen and shared tips on how we can prevent collagen damage. For my latest blog post, I wanted to introduce some of the treatments that I use to stimulate collagen and help my clients to achieve healthy, happy skin. If you to learn more about the process and why they’re effective, read on.
Medical skin needling, also known as collagen induction therapy (CIT) is an aesthetic procedure that involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles. The process induces tissue remodelling via endogenous production of collagen.
As well as stimulating collagen production, the treatment also strengthens your skins barrier function, reduces pigmentation and increased hydration and plumpness.
Skin needling is the only rejuvenation treatment that can maximise penetration of essential cell nutrients, in turn, releasing growth factors associated with the positive aspects of wound healing simultaneously.
If you’re reading this and thinking the procedure sounds painful, you’ll be glad to know it’s not. When treating the face, I use needles ranging between 0.25 to 1.5mm in length after applying a topical anaesthetic cream.
The majority of my clients report the produced to be pain-free thanks to its non-invasive approach. What’s more, the recovery time is minimal so you won’t require any downtime.

Another treatment which is powerful when it comes to collagen stimulation is mesotherapy. Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive injection technique which allows me to individually select active substances to administered directly into the intended area of skin and subcutaneous region.
The process, which is great for skin rejuvenation and tightening involved me tailoring a combination of vitamins, enzymes, hormones, hyaluronic acid and natural plant extracts specifically to you and your skincare conditions.
By administering a specific combination, the products help to stimulate the interaction between your cells, which in turn, aids in increasing the production of both collagen and elastin.
Although in most cases an improvement may be noticeable immediately, the majority of mesotherapy treatments will be carried out over an extended period of time, with the most recognisable results showing after 4 to 6 sessions.
Much like skin needling, most clients report the treatment to be pain-free with minimal downtime required as you recover.

As with all skincare products and procedures, they should always be tailored to you as an individual. Therefore, a full consultation is always required before I administer treatments and prescribe products. If you’re ready to achieve healthy, happy skin, get in touch!
