What is Collagen Induction Therapy?
If you struggle with fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of facial aging, you’ve likely heard of collagen. While you may know that you need plenty of collagen for a youthful complexion, do you really understand what collagen is and what it can do for your skin? More importantly, do you know how you can trigger more of your own collagen production?
Collagen induction therapy is a proven means of restoring a youthful suppleness and even tone to the skin of your face. This non-surgical treatment is best accomplished with microneedling. It is a natural anti-aging therapy that does not involve surgical skin repositioning or the use of harmful chemicals. While results can be more gradual with microneedling, they are also long-lasting.
How Does Collagen Induction Work?
Collagen is a primary structural protein within the skin. It not only provides volume but also acts as a framework or scaffolding for the facial skin to hold it in its most youthful position. When collagen is depleted, as it naturally does when we age, the skin can begin to sag, wrinkle and lose its smooth texture. How do we get that collagen back so that we can reclaim a youthful appearance? Collagen Induction Therapy is an excellent solution.
While we know that collagen depletes with age, we also know that this natural protein is also produced when the skin is damaged, as a healing mechanism. During collagen induction therapy, we can use tiny needles to pierce the skin, causing the “damage” needed to trigger collagen production. This form of collagen induction therapy can result in a drastic increase in collagen as well as other important proteins in the skin layers.
Benefits of Microneedling
More collagen in your skin means more than just a smoother, tighter and younger-looking complexion. Because the skin layers are gradually replaced with new tissue after microneedling, patients may also notice that pigmentation issues and scarring can also be improved. Collagen induction therapy is ideal for conditions such as melisma, rosacea, acne scars, injury scars and stretch marks.
Compared to other collagen induction treatments such as chemical peels and laser resurfacing, microneedling tends to be more favorable. Although it is completed over several sessions, it is less abrasive to the skin and poses much less risk for unwanted skin damage.
