What is Collagen Induction Therapy?
Collagen induction therapy incorporates a small roller studded with fine medical grade stainless steel needles. The roller, also know as a dermaroller, can be used on the face, neck, and chest. It promotes collagen and elastin production and breaks down scar tissue. As new cells proliferate, collagen and elastin fibers form as well as new capillaries for an improved blood supply.
What conditions can be treated and improved with Collagen Induction Therapy?
Fine lines and wrinkles
Skin texture and pigmentation
Depressed acne scarring
What areas of skin can be treated with Collagen Induction Therapy?
As previously mentioned, collagen induction treatments can be performed on the face, neck , chest and even the abdomen and thighs.
Is there any downtime after a treatment?
Although the downtime will be dependent on the depth of penetration of the dermaroller, it is usually very limited. The skin may be slightly pink or red for a few hours up to a few days after treatment and the skin may feel a little tight.
When will I see results from the treatment?
Some dryness and tightness will be noticed within the first week after treatment but the full effect of the treatment is noticed at 6 to 8 weeks. Ideally a series of 4 treatments is recommended space 3 to 5 weeks apart depending on the condition being treated and the depth of penetration of the dermaroller.
Are there any contraindications to this treatment?
This treatment is not suitable for anyone who:
has skin infections
is pregnant or lactating
open wounds in the area being treated
history of keloids or poor wound healing
