When it comes to aging, sagging skin, fine lines, wrinkles, and other skin imperfections, one of the most important factors is collagen. Collagen is the substance in your skin that creates the framework which keeps your skin robust and youthful. It allows your skin to be resilient, flexible, and hydrated. As you age, collagen production decreases, and wrinkles and other signs of aging skin become more apparent. Collagen Induction Therapy, then, is the process of trying to encourage your body to produce more collagen, reversing the effects of aging.
The key ingredient to Collagen Induction Therapy is microneedling. Microneedling involves using a special device containing many tiny needles to make barely perceptible microinjuries all over the targeted area of skin. These injuries kick the body into healing mode, resulting in increased endogenous production of collagen.
The potential benefits are myriad and can include skin tightening and lifting, acne scar, surgical scar and stretch mark improvement, enhanced collagen production, enhanced skin rejuvenation, and smoother, more even-toned skin.
We can combine microneedling with other treatments designed to take advantage of your rapidly healing skin and new collagen to heal your skin even stronger than before. This may include options like RF therapy, using a gentle source of heat to tighten skin and further enhance the effects of collagen production methods.
