Collagen Fractional Micro-Needling
Collagen Induction Therapy ( CIT)
Medical Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy is a very safe, and effective alternative to injectables and the invasive lasers used today. The results are long term and the recovery time is minimal. Medical Skin Needling is a cost effective, non-invasive, non-injectable skin rejuvenation treatment that targets a diverse range of skin concerns. Medical Skin Needling is derived from ancient acupuncture and mesotherapy. Tiny punctures are created within the epidermis and dermis that encourage the skin’s own natural healing response.
What is Automated Micro-Needling?
Automated Micro-Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy used for treatment of fine lines, hyper-pigmentation as well as on hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks and generally creates a fresher appearance or glow to the skin. During this procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker dermis with the appearance of softer wrinkles. Mesopen also creates superficial micro-channels which allow topical serums to be absorbed more effectively into the skin.
What areas of the body can I treat?
MesoPen can be used on all parts of the body; Face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
What does it Feel Like?
The feeling associated with MesoPen Treatment is similar to light sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating needle tip reduces discomfort while the applied hydrating gel also makes the treatment more tolerable. The treatment is carried out using topical numbing cream for your comfort. Afterward your skin will appear deep pink in the area treated and this will subside over the next 12-24 hours depending on the depth of medical skin needling used.
How long does the procedure take?
The treatment involves a stimulating-regenerating activity of collagen that is intensified by ultrasounds and stimulation with fractional micro-needling.
ULTRASOUNDS used in the treatment make a unique system of penetration through the epidermis. They strengthen the collagen activity and enable active substances to reach deep layers of the skin. By a deep micro-massage, the ultrasounds improve blood and lymph circulation as well as regeneration of cells.
The technology of skin stimulation with the use of FRACTIONAL MICRO NEEDLE of the latest generation ensures spectacular effects. It stimulates the skin to rebuild tissues and increases the amount of collagen in the skin. It naturally and safely stimulates collagen fibers to regenerate as well as eases effective transport of active substances deep into the skin. The 2 steps procedure takes 90 minutes depending on the size of the area treated ( including numbing time).
What is the downtime?
Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the depth of needles used and the number of overlapping passes. On average, patients are red up to 2 days. Some patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours. LED PHOTO FACIAL will help healing and additionally enhances collagen stimulation.
When will I see the results?
Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues.
How many treatments will I need?
Some patients only require a single treatment, once per year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6-week intervals.
