The effects of aging, sun exposure, and other environmental factors can wreak havoc on our facial skin. As we age and mature, our skin doesn’t heal itself as quickly, and the decrease in collagen plus the inability for the skin layers to retain adequate moisture complicates things even further. Renewal of skin is slow, as the epidermis is actually formed deeper down and moves upward. Wrinkles and fine lines are the result of skin that is in dire need of rejuvenation. Collagen induction therapy can actually stimulate the production of healthier skin tissue throughout the layers.
We may recommend this treatment for our clients who are dismayed at their appearance but who want a simple solution without the side effects of bleaching or unwanted discoloration. A single treatment may help smooth the facial skin and eliminate marionette lines and other blemishes. However, it’s usually best to undergo a series of treatment sessions for optimal results.
How Collagen Induction Therapy Works
The treatment is performed in the comfort of our office. It involves the use of a special device, which creates many tiny micro-channels in the skin in order to promote the production of collagen and induce the body’s natural healing response.
Consultation and Treatment
We will look closely at the problem areas during the consultation at our office. Common problems that our clients come to us with include age spots, brittle skin with tiny wrinkles, acne scars, injury scars, and smile lines. For the actual treatment, we will adjust the settings to allow for the perfect depth of penetration. After treatment, the skin goes into overdrive. Nutrients are rushed via the bloodstream, collagen production increases, and the new epidermal layer begins to form from below.
