Collagen Induction Therapy
‘Collagen induction therapy’ is the new buzz term flying around so what does this term actually mean, how does it happen, what can it do for my skin health???
To stimulate collagen, you need to penetrate the skin causing a micro trauma
Two things occur when you penetrate the skin’s surface
Historically it was believed that to stimulate this process there needed to be deep traumatic injury to the skin, however more recently research has shown that this type of treatment is unnecessary and more damaging to the skin in the long term.
You don’t need to penetrate the deep layers of the skin causing significant trauma, or look as if you’ve emerged from a burning building to get facial enhancement and look younger. These practices will over time create a new layer but also thick scar tissue in the underneath layers of your skin.
Modern and more progressive cosmetologists have taken this new research on board and implemented new and improved tools and techniques to treat cosmetic concerns including acne scarring.
A completely new and improved matrix layer take approximately 3 months and this will last for 2-3 years. People will need monthly maintenance treatments to maintain their skin health.
