What is Collagen Induction Therapy?

Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is an exciting new natural treatment to improve your skin texture, smooth wrinkles, fine lines and soften scars. It is suitable for all skin types and all areas of the face, neck, décolletage and hands. Skin needling is performed with a surgical grade instrument with stainless steel micro needles ranging from 0.5mm to 1.5mm in length. Scaring is treated with needles up to 2mm.

Hyaluronic acid and colostrum gel is used during the treatment to help hydrate the skin and minimize fine lines. This can be purchased after your treatment (see below). The treatment promotes the natural reproduction of collagen and elastin, making the skin feel smoother and tighter. Creating only microscopic punctures in the epidermis, skin needling is minimally invasive with little damage to the epidermis which means the collagen production is significantly quicker than some other more aggressive treatments.

CIT is a natural skin rejuvenation approach helping to prevent wrinkles and is an effective alternative to Botox and fillers. Collagen Induction Therapy is the only skin rejuvenation treatment to target and regulate 3 key skin cells (keratinocyte, melanocyte and fibroblast) without compromising the integrity of the epidermis. The growth factors released through Collagen Induction Therapy results in regenerative healing (collagen forms from the base upwards) and is type III collagen or healthy collagen as opposed to the growth factors released when when the epidermis is damaged by ablative or heat methods which in contrast produce cicatricial healing (collagen forms from the top down) and is type I collagen or scar collagen.

Collagen Induction Therapy does not damage the skin… it leaves the epidermis intact which is the protective layer of our skin. The growth factors released through Collagen Induction Therapy results in regenerative healing (collagen forms from the base upwards) and is type III collagen or healthy collagen as opposed to the growth factors released when when the epidermis is damaged by ablative or heat methods which in contrast produce cicatricial healing (collagen forms from the top down) and is type I collagen or scar collagen.

Collagen Induction Therapy stimulates your body’s own collagen production in the dermal layer which is where collagen resides and is formed. Results are natural, not fake or plastic looking. No foreign substances are injected. Skin becomes thicker. Collagen and elastin increase up to 1000 percent. Any part of the body may be treated. The healing period is short (1-2 days). Less expensive and more effective than laser treatments.

Safe for people with darker skin thus no fear of hyperpigmentation (dark spots). Effective on peri and post-menopausal women. Skin does not become sensitive to the sun. Safe for individuals who have had laser resurfacing. Changes may occur in dilated blood vessels that may cause them to disappear.

How Exactly Does collagen induction Work?

By the time we are 35 we will have lost half the collagen (the ‘scaffolding’ of the skin) in our skin and elastin (which gives our skin its elasticity), and quite simply Collagen Induction Therapy stimulates collagen and elastin production.

It is the controlled stimulation of the skin’s ability to self-repair. The thousands of micro ‘channels’ created in the skin, not only trigger new collagen production but also allow any products applied to penetrate deep into the skin and heal the skin further.

Instant Plumping That’s Locked into the Skin

Natural serums, oils and preparations (I am a fan of powerful concentrations of Retinol and Hyaluronic Acid) are applied immediately after Collagen Induction Therapy, as the channels the needles have made in the skin also allows the products to enter far deeper into the skin than they would without the skin needling being done first. This will significantly aid the success of the treatment as the skin’s ability to soak up nutrients increases by whooping 3000% for an hour after the treatment!!

The All Important Healing Process after collagen induction

As the epidermis is only punctured, it heals quickly. However, the skin as a whole undergoes a three staged healing process after Collagen Induction Therapy, and because of this slightly more lengthy process the full results of the treatment can take up to one to fully show. Over a 3 to 6 month period the skin repairs itself naturally, and gradually the appearance of the skin improves dramatically. It is recommended that, for optimum results, you have three separate treatments spaced out 4-6 weeks apart.

Although it is still beneficial to have a one-off treatment, and it will still give results, just obviously not as significant, or as good, as having the two or three in the specified time period.

After collagen induction there are three stages of skin remodeling that take place:
1. Inflammation – This begins directly after the treatment, the skin is red and inflamed.
2. Inflammatory response – Chemicals are released that stimulate new collagen tissue.
3. Collagen formation – The actual remodeling of healthy collagen and elastin fibers continues for up to 1 year.

We didn’t age overnight…so why should we anti-age overnight?

Our expectations of skin care treatments these days is very high. We want instant hits, quick fixes and immediate results. We want considerably younger looking skin without paying out thousands for a face lift… and we want the results, not tomorrow, not today but NOW!! We don’t take into consideration the fact that it has taken a lifetime of environmental exposure, bad lifestyle and diet choices, lack of exercise and bodily imbalance for our skin to reach its current state. Super models and actresess take care very good care of their skin every day and every night to keep it healthy. That is why they still look good into their 50’s and 60’s.

COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY

Here are the most common questions we receive about Collagen Induction Therapy.

[accordion title=”WHAT SKIN TYPES ARE SUITABLE FOR THIS TREATMENT ?” opened=”0″ class_icon_closed=”plus” class_icon_opened=”minus” border=”true”]These are the most common things that women and men get collagen induction therapy for
• fine lines, dull skin, enlarged pores
• acne scars, chicken pox scars and surgical scars (more than 6 months old)
• naso-labial lines and smokers lines
• rejuvenation of hands , neck and décolletage.[/accordion]

[accordion title=”HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED ?” opened=”0″ class_icon_closed=”plus” class_icon_opened=”minus” border=”true”]Generally a minimum of 3 treatments are required to achieve the good rejuvenation of an area. Most women require 6-8 treatments to achieve the best results. When treating scarring, at least 8-12 treatments would generally be required. The treatments are performed 3-4 weeks apart.[/accordion]

[accordion title=”WHEN WILL WE SEE RESULTS?” opened=”0″ class_icon_closed=”plus” class_icon_opened=”minus” border=”true”]The first week after the treatment you may get some skin peeling which helps lighten pigmentation or scarring and the skin looks more hydrated. The results are gradual as collagen re- production takes time, most clients report a gradual improvement in their skin color and texture over 6- 8 week period. That improvement is compounded as each consecutive treatment is performed. So it’s really important to apply creams at home and commit to your follow up treatments to see the best results.[/accordion]

[accordion title=”WHEN IS COLLAGEN INDUCTION TREATMENT NOT SUITABLE ?” opened=”0″ class_icon_closed=”plus” class_icon_opened=”minus” border=”true”]The treatment should not be performed
• within 2 weeks of having an injectable dermal filler or botox.
• the treatment is never performed on raised moles, warts or lesions
• during pregnancy (when breastfeeding the treatment is allowed)
• medication (some medication may reduce healing time, please advise your therapist on anything you may be taking)
• the treatment will not be performed if the client has an active herpes or acne breakout, however, once resolved the treatment can go ahead after 2 weeks
