Collagen Induction Therapy is a new and effective alternative treatment for acne scars. Fine microneedles perforate the scar tissue. After sufficient perforation, very fine blood spots (but not bleeding) will be visible on the skin. Only a few days after the treatment NEW fibroblasts and capillaries will migrate through the punctured scar tissue. This results in new tissue formation to “fill” the former acne scar. New capillaries result in a significant better blood supply that in return results in an improved skin color. Collagen Induction Therapy will result in a significant improvement in the appearance of acne scars.
Collagen Induction Therapy is simple: to stimulate the body’s own production of collagen, thereby reducing wrinkles and improving skin texture. The principle behind collagen channeling using the Collagen Induction Therapy treatment is simple. When it is applied to the skin, under local or topical anesthesia, a sterile roller or “Dermapen” with very fine needles is used to create many microscopic channels deep into the dermis of the skin, which stimulate your own body to produce new collagen. These channels also improve the penetration of vitamins A and C creams thereby making the skin appear fresher and younger. Results last as long as 5 years or more.
Clinical studies have shown Collagen Induction Therapy to be more effective than ablative treatments like laser resurfacing, micro-dermabrasion, and chemical peels and is just as effective as non–ablative treatments like IPL, CO2 laser, and Fraxel in stimulating collagen and elastin production to thicken the skin and minimize acne scars.
