Medical Needling - Collagen Stimulation Therapy

Unlocking Your Body’s Powers of Rejuvenation

 

This non-invasive treatment, sometimes referred to as dermal rolling, for the face and body, is racing ahead of more invasive, surgical procedures such as laser resurfacing of the skin, as it produces the same dramatic results without the risks and downtime. 

This treatment involves the use of a medical needling device. It is a small medical rolling instrument containing tiny needles, which creates thousands of microscopic channels in the lower levels of the skin as the needles are rolled over the treated area. The body responds to Collagen Stimulation Therapy in the same way it would react to injury. The small amount of bleeding caused during treatment releases powerful growth factors, which are a part of a natural healing response, resulting in increased collagen and elastin production. 

This painless and revolutionary procedure was pioneered by eminent plastic surgeon Dr Des Fernandez, founder of Environ Skincare, in 1997. It is largely due to his research and input that we now have this amazing treatment available. 

Dr Fernandez's philosophy is one of causing dramatic improvements in the skin, whilst at the same time taking care not to compromise skin health, or cause lasting damage such as scarring, as a result of this procedure.
