Collagen Stimulation Therapy (CST) is a cutting-edge treatment which 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. By needling the skin, powerful growth factors are released, increasing collagen and elastin production, all part of the natural healing response. CST also utilises the latest technological developments to drive the freshest, most active forms of vitamins A and C deep into the lower layers of the skin.
CST is especially effective for addressing the visible signs of ageing as well as sun damage, scarring, slackened skin, uneven skin tone and dilated blood vessels. CST is a revolutionary non-invasive approach and achieves incredible results without damaging the skin. This means the procedure can be repeated safely until the desired effect is achieved and results in a more natural appearance.

The treatment will be explained at an initial consultation and then a programme of sessions can be decided. The client needs to use Environ AVST 1 for three weeks prior to the first treatment to prepare the skin and maximise the induction of collagen.
At each treatment the skin is thoroughly cleansed and a topical anaesthetic is applied. While the anaesthetic starts to work, you can enjoy a relaxing massage. A small roller containing many tiny needles is then rolled over the skin to create thousands of microscopic channels in the lower levels of your skin. After needling the skin is cleansed with sterile water and then mild forms of lactic acid are applied to destroy bacteria, boost hydration and remove the build up of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin.
The skin is cleansed, a serum is applied to help healing and sound waves and small electrical pulses are used to drive the serum deep into the lower layers of the skin. This is followed with a serum containing vitamins A and C and an alginate masque. Then sound waves and small electrical pulses are used again to enable the active vitamins to reach the lower layers of the skin, stimulating collagen and boosting radiance. The treatment finishes with massaging AVST oil into the skin to re-mositurise.
There may be some tightening, reddening and flaking of the skin in the first few days. The skin usually returns to normal in 3-5 days and treatment can be repeated after 7 days.
Results are noticeable after one treatment, however a course of 6 treatments is recommended spread over 6 to 24 weeks to obtain optimum results.
Suitable for all skin types and all areas of the face and body.
