As part of the natural ageing process, UV breaks down collagen and elastin fibres, thinning the skin and losing its buoyancy, leading to fine lines, wrinkles and vascular looking skin. Collagen Induction therapy (CIT) uses micro fine needles that perforate the capillary network creating a cascade of growth factors that eventually lead to collagen deposition, thickening the skin, padding out pores, fine lines and wrinkles.
We offer two methods of Dermal Needling: The Dermal roller and the E Dermastamp pen, the formal being a cylindrical barrel with many micro fine needles inserted into the barrel which is rolled over the skin; the latter is a pen like device with a chamber that sits behind the needles and allows a peptide rich solution to be delivered at the time of treatment. Dermal rolling has the advantage of being able to be administered 3 - 7 days apart for 6 treatments for optimum results. The E Dermastamp pen is administered 4 - 6 weekly and has the advantage of a built in chamber delivering the peptide solution and a much smaller head, allowing for more comfort during treatment and the ability to work closely in smaller areas such as the top lip and around the eye. It also has a function to alter the needle length depending on skin thickness (eg, longer needles for the cheeks and reduced needle length for the forehead, nose and eye area)
Both methods offer excellent results, the Dermal Roller protocol being based on the latest research,offering optimum results and the E dermastamp is a less time intensive, more comfortable regime and can be incorporated with PRP ( Vampire Facial Plus)

The inflammatory reaction of the skin is extremely short and fades significantly within hours from redness to pinkish that may last from 12 to 24 hours on average. In order to reduce visible redness, we recommend topical healing minerals + hyaluronic acid to help hydrate the skin. Zinc sun protection is also recommended.
You must avoid AHA’s, retinol (vitamin A) or anything acidic or ‘active’ for a minimum of 2 days.
Only use a soothing cleanser to clean, hyaluronic acid to help hydrate as your skin will become very dry. Copper + Zinc to help heal and protect.
