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.

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.
