Hollywood’s best kept secret has just been revealed
The treatment of choice of Hollywood stars such as Angelina Jolie and Demi Moore, medical micro-needling, is now available at Therapie Clinics throughout Ireland. The revolutionary new treatment, also referred to as collagen induction therapy, is a breakthrough remedy for the super-effective treatment of wrinkles, pigmentation, and scars, including burn, acne and surgical scars, as well as stretch marks, including post pregnancy.
Clinical studies have shown that micro-needling produces channels in dermis which sufficiently stimulate the body’s natural defences to repair and produce concentrated amounts of collagen and proteins to the treated areas of skin. This results in the skin’s thickness being increased by up to 80 per cent, smoothing scars and visibly erasing wrinkles and stretch marks.
How it works
The treatment introduces fine needles into the skin to create microscopic channels. In doing so the dermis is encouraged to produce new collagen and elastin which generates new skin cells to repair itself. The skin then becomes thicker, plumper, and more youthful. Serums that are applied to the skin afterwards are also up to 1,000 times more effective as the pores on the skin are opened and the product is absorbed deeper into the skin.
What areas can be treated with micro-needling?
Micro-needling can effectively treat wrinkles, pigmentation, skin resurfacing, stretch marks, acne scars, and burn scars.
Q. Is there any down time, and does it hurt?
A. There is very little down time, your skin will look and feel mildly sunburnt for about 24 hours after the treatment and could start to flake slightly the next day. This is a normal reaction and results will become visible from one week after your treatment.
Therapie uses numbing cream on sensitive areas such as the face so there is no pain involved in the treatment.
Q. Are there any side effects?
A. Some immediate side effects include redness, flaking, and mild irritation on the treated areas but all of these effects subside within 24 to 72 hours and can vary from person to person.
Q. How many treatments will I need? How long do the treatments take?
A. To see significant results, Therapie recommends a course of four to six treatments, spaced four weeks apart.
Q. How much does it cost?
A. It starts from just €139 per treatment.
