What is Collagen Stimulation Therapy
Collagen stimulation treatment is a cutting edge treatment that harnesses your body’s natural powers of healing to tighten skin and achieve incredible results. It is especially effective for addressing the visible signs of ageing, as well as sun damage, scarring, slackened skin, uneven tone and dilated blood vessels.
During the 2 hour treatment, the skin care professional will apply topical anaesthetic and will use a small instrument containing tiny needles to create thousands of microscopic channels in the lower levels of your skin. This causes a minimal amount of bleeding that stops within minutes. After the treatment your skin care professional will cleanse the skin and apply nourishing vitamins A and C. You will notice you will look flushed, as if you have sunburn, but this within fade in 3-4 days.
The body responds to CST in the same way it would to injury, the small amount of bleeding caused during the treatment releases powerful growth factors which are part of the healing response resulting in increased collagen and elastin production, giving tighter, younger looking skin.
It is recommended you build up high levels of Environ vitamins in your skin prior to treatment and that you get a course of treatments ranging from 3-9 weekly or bi-weekly dependent on the condition of your skin.

Following the procedure, you may feel a little sore but simple analgesia such as paracetamol are normally all that is required. Results will be visible after about a week but will be best when the course of treatment is completed.
