How does it work?
Collagen plays a vital role in improving the health and appearance of your skin. It is naturally produced within the body and acts as the structural support for the skin, keeping it firm, plump and hydrated. When we get older our collagen levels diminish and we lose elasticity which causes wrinkles, lines, dullness and age spots to appear.
Our range of treatments and techniques all work to stimulate and boost collagen production within the skin. At the end of each session, you’ll notice significant improvements in the appearance of your skin and this will only increase with every treatment. Collagen Boosters are especially helpful in reducing the appearance of dark melanocytes (age spots), improving uneven skin tone, lifting ageing skin and targeting thread veins. All treatments are aimed to revitalise dull skin and give you a natural, healthy looking glow.
What areas can be treated?
Collagen Booster treatment is commonly used on the face, neck and chest. This also includes tightening and smoothing the appearance of any crepey, loose skin found on the lower neck regions.
What kind of results can I expect?
You can expect your skin to look and feel firmer, with an visible reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, thread veins and age spots. For extra brightness, your practitioner may prescribe you a course of Skin Peels to further boost hydration for a more radiant glow. Skin Peels often work well with Collagen Boosters as a combination treatment to help smoothen deeper lines or wrinkles.
Another combination that can be used simultaneously with Collagen Boosters is our Skinceutials GL Peel or Microdermabrasion. These treatments work to gently exfoliate the layers of skin, leaving your skin feeling deeply cleansed. By combining some treatments together they work to reach deeper, more stubborn lines and enhance your complexation further.
How many treatments will I need?
To achieve the best results, we recommend a course of 3+ treatments – depending on your skin goals. The first two treatments are usually spaced two weeks apart in order to make the first, significant reductions to your lines/wrinkles. After then, the next ones will be once every month until you are satisfied with the results. This treatment can also be performed as a one-off, which is ideal if you are seeking to enhance your skin’s complexion for a special occasion.

|SKIN RE-SURFACERS & CHEMICAL SKIN PEELS|

Using highly effective acids such as retinol & glycolic to increase cellular turnover, promote collagen production and increase the skins moisture levels.

A highly effective treatment using a small handheld device that stimulates collagen and increases your skins natural moisture levels, leaving you with plump, radiant and firm skin.
| IPL BASED TREATMENTS|
Using Intense Pulse light therapy, this proven technique is excellent at stimulating collagen, the foundation of young looking skin.
| LASER BASED TREATMENTS |
Laser therapy is ideal for targeting the deeper layers of the skin and helping improve deep set wrinkles and furrows.
Most tones and skin types are eligible for this treatment. Although, we cannot treat anyone with a tan, natural or fake. As sun exposed skin may react with the light technology used to stimulate collagen production which can damage the skin. If you’re tanned, please contact the clinic at least two days prior to your next appointment to seek advice on how you should proceed.
One to two weeks before the treatment, you must stop using any acid based products such as Glycolic and Salicylic serums or creams.
If you have been prescribed or are taking any new medications or herbal supplements, or if anything medically changes let your practitioner know prior to your treatment. It is important to update us on any medical changes you experience as these may impact the treatment.
After the treatment, you must avoid using any perfumed products or make-up whilst the skin heals. Switching to mineral based make-up is recommended to avoid any side effects or irritation. You can wear mineral make-up immediately after the treatment, which will be available at your clinic if you wish to cover any potential redness. We also recommend you do not go to the gym, use saunas, steam rooms or go swimming for at least two days after the treatment. You must avoid using products with acids, retinol and exfoliating beads for at least a week.
We recommend using Youngblood mineral cosmetics, and a psychical broad spectrum SPF such as Dermaquest Zinclear SPF to protect and prevent the further appearance of age spots. To enhance the results further we recommend using a product that will rebuild the skins collagen, such as DermaQuests 3D StemCell Complex.
Q: Is there any downtime?
A: You shouldn’t experience any down-time which is why Collagen Boosters are perfect for people with busy schedules. It is a fast procedure and the only side effects you experience after the treatment is appearing a little flushed – which will pass very quickly
Q: What will the treatment feel like?
A: The treatment is not an unpleasant experience and there is no need for any topical anaesthetic. Clients have described the treatment as feeling like a warm wave across skin and feel a gradual warming sensation over the whole treated area.
Q: Why would I have this instead of laser treatments?
A: The IPL device we implement uses a range of wave lengths and light energy to target and penetrate the multiple levels of skin. Compared to general laser treatments, which can be used on large areas, IPL Collagen Booster treatment is specifically used to treat the effects of anti-ageing, like age spots and tread veins. It has a concentrated beam which is fine enough to target smaller areas and also powerful enough to treat multiple issues all in one appointment.
