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.
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 two different types of infusion that can be used during collagen induction therapy:
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.
