IS COLLAGEN GROWTH TREATMENT SUITABLE FOR ME?

As we age, the decline in collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid can lead to structural and functional changes in the skin, including decreased barrier function, hydration, increased sagging, pore size, wrinkles, and other undesirable changes in skin quality.
HOW DO WE PERFORM THE COLLAGEN GROWTH TREATMENT?
Collagen growth treatment involves injecting the skin with an ultrafine microneedle at five predetermined points on each side of the face, neck or chest. Other body areas can be treated too. This treatment typically takes less than 30 minutes per session.
WHAT DO I NEED TO PREPARE MY SKIN BEFORE THE TREATMENT?
There is usually minimal preparation for the treatment.
To minimise bruising, 24 to 48 hours before the treatment, it is recommended to avoid alcohol, aspirin, or anti-inflammatory medication.
If you are very pain sensitive, we recommend applying our numbing LMX 1 hour before your treatment, You can get the LMX from our clinic.
If you are using the LMX to numb your skin for the treatment, best not to remove the numbing cream on your skin when you attend your appointment to get the maximum numbing effect.
WHAT WILL MY SKIN LOOK LIKE? ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Most people can resume their normal activity and no one will know what you have done especially if you apply makeup.
Immediately after the collagen growth treatment, you may only see a few small bumps on your skin where we have administered the collagen growth product. For most people, these bumps can easily be massage and flatten very quickly as the product diffuse deeply into your skin (within minutes or hours).
