Needle Free Collagen Induction Therapy
Needle Free Collagen Induction Therapy is a non-invasive procedure, where short electrical modulated pulses of alternate current are used to create temporary openings on the surface of the skin. This method is known as “Electroporation”. This treatment is virtually pain free and is ideal for people who don’t like needles.
During the procedure, serum containing a variety of ingredients such as vitamins, anti-oxidants and hyaluronic acid are applied directly onto the skin. The electrical current causes changes in the absorptivity of the skin, allowing the products to penetrate and be absorbed by the skin.
What is electroporation?
Electroporation is a process that uses high-voltage current to make cell membranes absorbent, to allow the infusion of active ingredients (such as vitamin C, hyaluronic acid and others) to penetrate deeply and effectively into the dermis, nourishing the skin and stimulating the regrowth of collagen. This procedure is painless and it acts as a virtual syringe.
What are the benefits?
This treatment is ideal for clients who are “needle phobic”, as well as those who are looking for non-surgical aesthetic treatments helping revitalize and rejuvenate the skin.

What are some of the side effects?
Side effects of this treatment are relatively minor and some clients experience no side effects at all, returning to their normal daily activities after treatment. Possible reactions with this therapy are redness or skin rash, inflammatory and allergic reactions.
