More people than ever before are looking for ways to turn back the hands of time and improve their appearance with the latest anti-ageing treatments. Now, it couldn’t be simpler to achieve the youthful skin you desire as collagen induction therapy is available from our Lead Dentist Aileen Sloan at our Merchant City location.
A: Collagen induction therapy, also known as microneedling, is a popular treatment thanks to its powerful ability to improve the signs of facial ageing. This revolutionary therapy improves the appearance of fine lines that appear around the eyes by increasing the natural production of collagen in the body. It can also make the skin firmer, reduce the appearance of age spots and hyperpigmentation, and improve scarring with rapid results.
A: Of course, a primary concern when deciding whether to have any anti-ageing treatment is whether or not it’s going to be safe. You needn’t worry when you come to Sloan Dental for collagen induction therapy. The microneedling device we use has been cleared by the FDA and has the CE mark. It has also been through stringent testing procedures to prove that it is the gold standard of safety. There is absolutely no risk of contamination as the cartridge used is sterile and disposable, and all treatments are carried out by fully trained and qualified therapists.
A: Considering that collagen induction therapy is sometimes known as microneedling, it isn’t too surprising that some patients worry that the treatment is going to hurt. However, in fact, thanks to the unique technology that we use you can expect to experience less redness, swelling and discomfort with our treatment than with many other more traditional options.
Due to the current backlog throughout NHS dentistry in Scotland, and to prioritise our current patients we are currently unable to register new NHS patients at any of our three locations.
This does not affect our Invisalign and Facial Aesthetic clinics at all locations - consultations for these are still available to all.
New Private patients can still register at our Glasgow City Centre (Merchant City) location by calling 0141 552 3428
We look forward to opening our NHS registration in the very near future
