WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM A COLLAGEN INDUCTION TREATMENT?

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM A COLLAGEN INDUCTION TREATMENT?

HOW LONG IS THE TREATMENT?

Treatment with the Collagen Induction Pen varies in length depending on the area selected for treatment.  Localised treatment of a frown line can take as little as 15 minutes from start to finish, whereas treating the entire face could take as long as 45 minutes.  However, this excludes the time it takes for the numbing cream for take effect, so an extra 20minutes should be allowed for.  For small areas such as a frown line, ice can be used as a numbing agent, which saves time and is just as effective.

WHICH AREAS RESPOND WELL TO TREATMENT?

The following areas respond well to treatment with the Collagen Induction Pen:

–       Localized areas such as upper lip, smile lines, frown lines

–       Crow’s feet around the eyes

–       Bags under the eyes

–       Acne Scarring

–       Sagging skin e.g. neck area

–       Age spots

–       Fine lines and wrinkles

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?

Results become visible within 10 days, but the optimal results from any one treatment will only become evident after 90 days, since this is the time that it takes for new collagen fibres to mature.

IS THE TREATMENT PAINFUL?

When compared to other anti-ageing treatments, the Collagen Induction Pen treatment is surprisingly comfortable.  Since the treatment depth can be set, the therapist is able to adjust the intensity of treatment according to the area being worked on.  For instance, the forehead is more sensitive than the cheeks, due to a lack of subcutaneous tissue.  She will therefore adjust treatment intensity accordingly.  The use of a topical numbing agent ensures that the treatment is not painful at all.

HOW OFTEN WILL I NEED TO HAVE A TREATMENT?

Each client is individually assessed according to their individual requirements.  Flabby skin on the neck, for instance, will have a different treatment program to a client with acne scarring on the cheeks.  The more intensive the sessions are, the longer the waiting period between treatments will be.  The waiting period is usually between 3-12 weeks.
