Collagen Induction Therapy utilizing the Dermapen Fractional microneedling device provides unparalleled collagen production. This unique microneedling device creates new collagen below the skin by:
(1) Triggering the release of the growth factors for new epidermal growth.
(2) Stimulating production of collagen and elastin for firm tight skin.
(3) Tissue remodelling to remove or reduce discolouration, fine lines and wrinkles and scarring. 4-6 treatments in 3-4 week intervals are recommended.
The Dermapen fractional micro-needling device has a unique spring-loaded disposable needle tip that uses an automated, vibrating stamp-like motion that enhances results while offering a more controlled and safer method of treatment than other micro-needling devices, all while causing less epidermal damage. The automated needling motion minimizes pain and discomfort, while increasing the effectiveness of treatments by promoting an even absorption of topicals into the skin. Dermapen offers exceptional results, is easy to use and has better precision and control than leading alternatives, all at a fraction of the cost.
The Collagen Induction Therapy treatment can provide drastic results in improving the appearance of keloid, surgical and acne scars, minimizing pore size, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and providing skin tightening, lifting and rejevenation. The micro needles of the Dermapen® create new collagen and elastin to be generated and deposited called collagenesis, however the added benefit of new capillary growth is also a result which can improve blood supply to the area which helps create healthier existing skin as well as provide a healthy foundation for the new skin. The physical nature of “skin-needling” breaks up this fibrous and uneven scar tissue and stimulates the growth of new tissue. Currently there are ablative and non-ablative treatments offered which can damage the epidermis and evaporate the skin leading to thinner epidermis problems. The Dermapen® keeps the epidermis integrity fully intact while treating the area which quickens healing time and causes less pain.
You will look as though you have a moderate to severe sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This is normal and will subside after 1 to 2 hours and will normally recover within the same day or 24 hours. Your practitioner will prescribe a Dermapen approved post-procedure skincare.
