Collagen Induction Therapy for a youthful, glowing and healthy skin

Posted on 25. Mar, 2015 by in Various

Collagen Induction Therapy, also known as  Micro Needling , is the “go to”  skin rejuvenation choice for help  in the correction of wrinkles, acne scars and stretch marks.  This treatment therapy will smooth and rejuvenate  the skin and reduce scars and stretch marks with little down time and with only a short series of sessions. It is safe for all skin types and can be done with minimal discomfort.

When administering the treatment the technician will use medical grade products that will also encourage cell growth and rapid healing. Encouraging the growth of new collagen – which diminishes in our 20’s – is essential in keep our skin youthful, glowing, plump and healthy!

Hyaluronic  acid, a natural compound found in skin, is used during the treatment  to help hydrate and plump up the skin.  Immediately after the treatment there is a window of around 15-20 minutes that is optimal for the application of rejuvenating skin care products to be applied to the skin.  These products, such as growth factors and stable vitamin c, are able to penetrate very deep into the skin where they  encourage collagen production.  You may experience mild redness and possible swelling the first 24-48 hours but are able to return to your regular routine right away, but avoiding direct sunshine for a few days.
