Skin Needling – Collagen Induction Therapy
Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy and is designed to trigger new collagen synthesis in the skin, leading to younger, brighter and healthier looking skin. As we stamp the device over your skin, numerous, ultra-fine micro-needles designed to penetrate through the epidermis create microscopic punctures on the skin’s surface. By opening the skin in this way you not only dramatically increase the penetration of any topical product, increasing its efficacy, but you also create miniature perforations that stimulate the skin’s healing mechanisms, increasing production of many important factors for a healthy skin.
The concept of Collagen Induction Therapy is based on the skin’s 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, our body reuses the damaged collagen and elastin fibres as well as other damaged skin components to produce new ones. Skin Needling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self repair mechanism by creating micro-“injuries” in the skin which trigger new collagen synthesis, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring.

What is Dermal Rolling?
Dermal Rolling is a non-invasive, clinical treatment that has been scientifically proven to have a positive effect on a variety of skin conditions ranging from ageing and pigmentation to acne, scarring and stretch marks. This treatment is also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) or Skin Needling.
Dermal rolling involves rolling small medical grade microscopic needles over the skin, which creates thousands of miniature skin wounds that result in the stimulation and regeneration of organic collagen.
The new collagen pushes the old scar tissue toward the upper skin layers. Your skin will experience improved circulation and will feel plumped and hydrated. Fine lines and wrinkles are softened, pigmentation (sun-induced freckles) reduced and pore size is minimised.
It is mandatory to be using LIRA moisturiser and Sebuwash 2-3 weeks prior to your treatment and LIRA Body Oil post treatment.
WHO IS IT FOR? Dermal Rolling has been designed for any person experiencing such skin conditions including ageing; pigmentation; scarring; acne; enlarged pores or stretch marks. Dermal Rolling is suitable for all skin types, except those with active skin conditions or auto immune conditions.
DOES IT HURT? A numbing cream will be applied to increase comfort when receiving a Dermal Rolling clinical treatment. Clients can resume normal activities almost immediately, but may experience some minor redness for a day or two.
Dermal Roller Homecare treatments have no discomfort and require no downtime.
IS IT SAFE? Dermal Rolling can be safely repeated every 4 weeks until you achieve the desired results. You will see results immediately however the best results can take up to 90 days as the new collagen is formed. With thousands of treatments performed worldwide, no negative effects have been reported. This treatment is also suitable for darker skin types as there is no risk of hyper pigmentation.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I SEE? Results may be seen even after one treatment. Clients report a firmer, even-toned, more revitalised skin with a visible decrease in the appearance of wrinkles, pigmentation, sun damage, acne, enlarged pores and scarring. It is mandatory to be using Lira moisturiser and Cleanser 2-3 weeks prior to your treatment SPF post treatment.
