Medical science has discovered effective therapies to dig out deep-rooted skin complications which are lowering down your confidence.
One of those therapies is Collagen Induction Therapy also referred to as Microneedling.
Collagen Induction Therapy is a very simple, safe, effective therapeutic technique performed for skin rejuvenation. However, now its applications focus on acne scar, acne, post-traumatic/burn scar, alopecia, skin rejuvenation, drug delivery, hyperhidrosis, stretch marks, and much more.
Our skin possesses an amazing ability to heal itself. The tiny pricks in the skin stimulate an increase in collagen production. The new growth is healthier than the material that is being replaced. The trick is to promote healthy skin growth by controlling the whereabouts of these injuries.
Unlike a scrape that leaves scars after healing, microneedling heals the skin and does not leave any marks. But why would an individual have tiny needles pricked in their skin?
Collagen Induction Therapy helps smoothen the skin surface, reduce the appearance of certain forms of hyperpigmentation, and even strengthen the delicate tissues.
Let us dive into the major collagen induction therapy benefits:
Production of collagen in the skin is very crucial to our skin’s texture. Less collagen leads to more wrinkles, fine lines, and saggy skin. Therefore the optimal amount of collagen leads to a more youthful complexion. Microneedling is proved to boost collagen production as well. Patients who get treated with microneedling sessions experience a considerable increase in collagen and elastin deposition.
There are multiple microneedling treatments in which Atrophic scars are sunken in the skin and the skin is unable to regenerate tissues. Patients witness a decrease in the severity of their scarring by one or two grades and there are no significant adverse effects recorded.
The before and after look of collagen induction therapy can be surprisingly impressive. The radiance and glow of the skin is noticed post the treatment. The size of the large open pores shrink considerably and the skin feels softer. Women generally prefer to go makeup-free after undergoing microneedling as it imparts a naturally younger-looking skin.
Various needle lengths in the microneedling device including 150, 500, and 1500 micrometers have different effects on the skin. The needles affect the skin surface, transepidermal water loss as well as the penetration of water-attracting topical compounds.
Post-treatment, there is an observed decrease in water loss caused by a reduction in pore size and increases skin elasticity. Microneedling enhances the ability of water-attracting compounds to infiltrate the skin. The skin’s ability to absorb and hence benefit from topical products is also amplified.
You must not undergo Microneedling if you have active acne, cold sores, warts, or other skin infections. This therapy is also not recommended if you’re taking an anticoagulant drug or are undergoing chemotherapy or radiotherapy.
