Collagen induction therapy, or Microneedling is a skin renewal treatment that restores a healthy, youthful appearance to the skin.
Stimulates the production of collagen and elastin by creating a wound healing response in the skin. Your body will naturally produce new and healthy skin.

How It Works:
The principle of skin needling is based in the skin’s natural ability to repair itself. MySkin Clinics employ SkinPen for induction of the skin’s self repair mechanism by creating micro-injuries in the skin triggering new elastin fibre and collagen synthesis. The result is smoother, firmer, younger looking skin without risk of scarring. Microneedling does not remove the healthy epidermis.
The results of microneedling are quick, affordable, long lasting and suitable for most skin types and concerns including lack of;
loss of firmness
folds and crows’ feet
This also includes improvement of indented scars from acne or chicken pox.
Conditions apply. Applicable to Victorian stores only.
How does it work?
The concept of microneedling is based on the skins natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, burns and other abrasions.
Immediately after an injury occurs to the skin, the body reuses the damaged collagen and elastin fibres as well as other damaged skin components to produce new ones.
Microneedling allows for controlled induction of the skins self repair mechanism by creating micro-injuries in the skin which triggers new collagen synthesis, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin!
