Collagen Induction Therapy

Collagen induction therapy is a form of microneedling that repairs the skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles, scars, pigmentation and even stretch marks. It is also ideal for patients who want to treat acne scarring and tighten their pores.

What exactly is Collagen Induction Therapy?

There are a number of ways to make your skin smoother and brighter but as you get older, it may be necessary to take your skin care regime beyond topical products.

Collagen induction therapy is a form of microneedling that repairs the skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles, scars, pigmentation and even stretch marks. It is also ideal for patients who want to treat acne scarring and tighten their pores.

Microneedling devices penetrate the lower layers of the skin by creating micro-wounds across the skin’s surface. Because the treatment activates the skin’s natural healing process, it promotes cell growth and stimulates collagen production, leaving patients with a more youthful appearance.

While collagen induction therapy is effective as a standalone procedure, combining it with additional beauty therapies will produce even better results that last much longer.


What to Expect During Collagen Induction Therapy

Collagen induction therapy incorporates an advanced motor-powered roller with microneedles that can be adjusted according to the patient’s needs.

Once the skin has been cleaned, the roller will be moved across the skin so that the needles can reach into the dermis and activate the skin’s natural healing response. Since most patients will experience some slight discomfort during their treatment, a topical numbing cream can be applied prior to the procedure to make it more comfortable.

There are three different types of infusion that can be used during collagen induction therapy:

  1. Escar Grow Serum. A stem cell serum that contains hyaluronic acid is added to the microneedling device, which will stimulate collagen production and hydrate the skin
  2. PRP. Powerful plasma is extracted from the patient’s own blood and can be used during collagen induction therapy to encourage cell rejuvenation
  3. Factor4. To reverse the effects of ageing, the patient’s blood is incubated to create a formula that contains potent growth factors

Since the skin’s healing process is activated immediately, it means the perforations will be flooded with collagen and growth factors right after your treatment.

Collagen Induction Therapy: What Patients Need to Know

  • Ideal for all skin types. Collagen induction therapy can be safely used on all skin tones and types
  • Multiple sessions will be required. In most cases, patients will require at least 2 to 3 sessions spaced 4 – 6 weeks apart to achieve optimal results. The number of treatments required will depend on the condition of the patient’s skin
  • No downtime is required. While your skin will be flushed and slightly tender for up to 36 hours, there is no reason why you can’t return to work after your treatment. However, most patients choose to take a day off work to give their skin time to settle
  • Multiple areas can be treated. Many patients think that microneedling is only suitable for the face but the stomach, neck, décolletage and any area of the body with stretch marks can also be treated
  • Aftercare is important. Since your skin will be sensitive following your treatments, it’s important to avoid direct sun exposure for up to 72 hours and to keep your face makeup-free for at least 12 hours, after which mineral makeup can be applied
