Collagen is an essential protein found in our bodies that provides plump, hydrated and glowing skin. It seems we reach a certain age and it’s all we can think about – “how do I get more collagen!?” a quick google and you’ll find yourself overwhelmed with Collagen labelled vitamins, liquids, creams and more. But, let’s cut to the chase, these aren’t enough. The natural process of producing collagen is much more complicated than taking a few vita-gummies, collagen is made from skin cells in the middle layer of our skin that synthesise the protein which hold the entire layer together.
So now that we’ve gotten the harsh advice out of the way, we can focus on a treatment that has proven benefits. Want to know what it is? Collagen Induction Therapy!
Collagen Induction Therapy also known as Microneedling is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, burns or other abrasions. Immediately after an injury to the skin, the body removes the damaged collagen, elastin and other structures which are then replaced by new components. Skin needling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro-injuries which trigger new collagen synthesis yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring.
The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin!
So, what exactly can Collagen Induction Therapy do for your skin? From acne scarring, inflammation, pigmentation and more, this treatment is the solution!
