COLLAGEN STIMULATION THERAPY CST
Collagen Stimulation Therapy™ is a cutting edge treatment that harnesses your body’s natural powers of healing to tighten skin and achieve incredible results. The body responds to CST in the same way it would react to an injury. The small amount of bleeding caused during treatment releases powerful growth factors which are part of a natural healing response, resulting in increased collagen and elastin production.
It is especially effective for addressing the visible signs of ageing as well as sun damage, scarring, slackened skin, stretch marks, uneven skin tone and dilated blood vessels. Collagen Stimulation Therapy™ can be done on all areas of the face and body and is suitable for all skin types.
During this revolutionary procedure, your skincare professional will apply topical anaesthetic to ensure a comfortable treatment. They will use a small instrument containing tiny needles to create thousands of microscopic channels in the lower levels of your skin. This causes a minimal amount of bleeding that stops within minutes. After the treatment your practitioner will cleanse your skin and apply nourishing vitamins A and C.

So how does it work?
This treatment isn’t a ‘facial’ more an advanced treatment, so it needs to be performed by an experienced skin therapist/practioner. It is not the sort of quick fix treatment you have before a Saturday night out, but with a little dedication it will deliver long lasting results.
The whole process takes about 90 minutes, first of all we numb the skin and then we glide a roller over the skin which has microscopic needles, these tiny needles penetrate into the dermis and cause a micro trauma on the skin. This micro trauma causes tiny pin pricks of blood on the skin and once this has happened we know the collagen and elastin has been kick started.
This micro trauma tricks the skin into natural healing mode and floods the area with collagen and elastin, not any type of collagen and elastin this is type 1 collagen, the sacred words if you want a more youthful skin. After we’ve rolled, we clean the skin and put an alginate mask on to calm the redness, remove the mask and apply peptides and Vitamin A.
Is there downtime?
After the treatment you’ll stay a little pink for that day and the next, luckily you can apply makeup the next day, and a few days later you will go dry and a little flaky, but by day 5 the skin is looking normal and by day 7 starting to glow. The real wow results take about 3-4 months to come through but it sure is worth the wait as your skin will look plump, smooth and healthy. Not only that, but the results can last years.
Is it for you?
Well if you want the ultimate treatment for rejuvenation, if you are a bride to be and want that glow, if the skin is looking a little tired and needs a pick me up, if you need a bit of a lift and tighten on those sagging jowls or if you want to smooth those scars, tighten those pores or even out the skintone, then CST could well be the treatment for you. It can be performed practically anywhere on the face or body.
