EPN MICRO-NEEDLING & CIT
EPN is the next generation of micro-needling technology. It is the only micro-needling device that has TGA approval for both the needle cartridges and the pen to assure its precision and safety. EPN combines the latest micro-needling technology with electroporation for advanced results.
COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY (CIT)/MICRO-NEEDLING - $300
You may or may not have heard of MICRO-NEEDLING or COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY (CIT), they are in effect the same thing. The treatment employs tiny medical-grade needles to create micro-channels in the skin, that in turn excite the release of growth factors leading to the synthesis of new collagen and elastin.
Unlike many other needling devices, both the EPN pen and needle cartridges are TGA approved to be safe and precise. The device can be adjusted to reach varied depths depending on your comfort levels and skin challenges.
Collagen Induction Therapy is a safe and an effective treatment for all parts of the body and can be performed on all skin types and colours.
What are the benefits of CIT?
CIT is used for the purpose of generating new collagen and skin tissue for plumper, smoother, firmer skin. It can be used to target deep and fine lines, acne scarring, surgical scars enlarged pores, couperosis, hyperpigmentation and stretch marks.
What does the procedure involve?
After your consultation, the skin is cleansed and sterilised. The EPN needles are programmed to the target depth and automatically stamped onto the skin as the pen is slid over the treatment area to create thousands of micro wounds. This stimulates the skin to regenerate, initiating the production of elastin and collagen. The treatment may be combined with an active serum and followed by an IMAGE Hydrating sheet mask & FLEX MD BOOST to aid with the healing process and speed up recovery.
How does it feel?
Depending on your comfort levels and the depth of treatment required, you may experience some discomfort during the procedure. In some cases, topical aesthetic may be used to alleviate this and can be purchased over the counter in most pharmacies. Please ask me for more information.
What happens after?
Immediately after the treatment you may experience some erythema (redness) and mild swelling around the treatment area that may last up to 3 days. Avoid touching the skin, UV exposure, make up and activities that result in sweating immediately after.
ELECTROPORATION - $60 to $120
ELECTROPORATION is an altogether different technique in which an electrical field is applied to cells to increase the permeability of the membranes, allowing products to be introduced into the cell more efficiently. A concept the health and beauty industry have wrestled to master for decades.
What are the benefits of Electroporation?
ELECTROPORATION has been shown to increase transdermal product delivery by several orders of magnitude. This delivery system nourishes the cells to superior health, greatly improving the metabolism and functionality of your skin. Imagine a cocktail of superfood nutrients being delivered directly to where the cells can absorb and devour them. The infused serums will be chosen and customised to treat your specific skin challenges. The nourishing nature of this treatment gives a new meaning to “a healthy glow”.
What does the treatment involve?
ELECTROPORATION does not require needles and is a painless treatment that can be added as a booster to any other facial treatment.
After the skin has been cleansed and exfoliated, a customised serum or mask is applied. EPN device is set to the correct mode and glided over the surface to deeply infuse the product.
What happens after?
You may experience some mild redness and tingling but overall your skin will feel alive, plump and smooth.
