Collagen induction therapy, also known as microneedling, is an effective skin rejuvenation treatment. The procedure is minimally invasive, and the results last for quite some time. Aging skin shows fine wrinkles and more prominent blemishes such as age spots, acne, and scars. Microneedling can help minimize the appearance of these regional areas of hyperpigmentation as well as bring about a more smooth skin surface.
Collagen is a protein that keeps our skin surface taut and supple. As we age, the amount of collagen in our skin naturally decreases. However, collagen induction therapy can reverse this visual sign of aging by jumpstarting a collagen remodeling process. Nearly everyone with wrinkled, imperfect skin can qualify for microneedling.
How It Works
During the microneedling process, a series of tiny channels are created in the skin. This stimulates the production of collagen, which helps create fresher, tighter skin. When the new epidermal layer forms, the old surface is slowly sloughed off. Fine wrinkles and crow’s feet are now far less visible. Imperfections such as acne scarring, faded texture, and uneven tone are less noticeable because some of the cells that make up these tissues have been discarded in favor of new tissue growth. Once the collagen has built up in the skin, the surface is much smoother than before and the skin tone is clearer.
How Many Sessions Should I Have?
Some of our patients achieve the results they desire after only one collagen induction therapy treatment. Others may require multiple visits to attain their desired aesthetic. Results tend to vary as such from person to person. Our team will sit down with you to help you construct a treatment plan that best accommodates your individual needs and goals.
