Collagen Induction Roller Therapy
Collagen Induction Roller treatment employs the very simple principle of microtraumatising the skin to induce a healing response which of course, means laying down collagen in the upper layers of the skin. This visibly increases elasticity and so reduces a crêpey appearance. It is completely natural and involves nothing being injected into the area. Ideal areas for consideration are larger immovable areas; necks and chests and hands. Softening acne scarring is also possible
In people whom Botulinum A toxin treatments are useful but can also serve to accentuate the delicate under eye area collagen induction therapy is also becoming useful. It is beginning to be able to address improving skin quality- in just the area Botox cannot treat.
Restylane Vital is another treatment option for these specific indications.

How many treatments are necessary?
At least three, at six weekly intervals.
How long does it last?
Initial slight changes may be visible just before the second treatment. However, this will be built upon by about six months. Some of our initial cases were continuing to show improvement, even a year after the end of treatment. (see photos)
What about downtime?
A diffuse redress is often visible for about four hours. Pinkness and tenderness will be evident for an average of 48 hours. The under eye area is harder to cover and will involve an appearance of puffiness especially in the mornings for the next couple of days post procedure.
Whilst this treatment does not sun sensitize and render skin more prone to burning in the sun like laser treatments your skin will certainly be more sensitive for a period after the procedures and it will be necessary to use high SPF factor.
