Collagen Induction Therapy
Collagen Induction Therapy is often referred to as an advanced microneedle technique because the practitioner uses a deeper needle depth which causes desired excessive bleeding.
Collagen Induction Therapy works by encouraging your skin to make more collagen. The idea is that pinpricks from the procedure cause slight injury to the skin and that the skin responds by making new collagen-rich tissue. This new skin tissue is, in turn, more even in tone and texture. It’s normal for the skin to lose collagen via age or injury. By encouraging the skin to make new tissue, there may be more collagen to help make the skin firmer, too.
Collagen Induction Therapy Procedure
During the procedure, the practitioner makes small pricks under the skin with Derma Pen. The pinpricks are so small that you likely won’t notice them after the procedure. The practitioner will move the tool evenly across your skin so that the new skin that rejuvenates will be even, too.
Before getting started, we will use a topical anesthetic, Scalpa Numb, to reduce the chances of pain. This is done about 30-45 minutes prior to treatment.
Targeted Areas For Collagen Induction Therapy
age spots (also called “sun spots”)
fine lines and wrinkles
other types of scars
reduced skin elasticity
uneven skin tone
pore size reduction
improved appearance of stretch marks
In addition to facial concerns, microneedling is sometimes used to treat stretch marks in other areas of the body. Scarring on other body parts may also be treated with this procedure.
Like all cosmetic procedures, Collagen Induction Therapy isn’t without risk. The most common side effect is minor skin irritation immediately following the procedure. You may also see redness for a few hours to a few days.
