What Is Collagen Induction Therapy?
Also known as micro-needling, collagen induction therapy has become a favorite skin treatment for many individuals looking to repair their skin after damage from acne and the natural aging process. Using the specially designed SkinPen, dermatologists are able to use this device to deliver controlled micro-injuries to a patient’s skin, which in turn causes the body to respond with its natural healing process.
A major component of this healing process includes the rapid production of collagen under the surface layers of the skin, which provides the full and supple appearance that so many of our patients desire.
Unique Benefits of the SkinPen
There are of course many collagen induction therapy gadgets on the market, but the SkinPen is the only device that has received medical-grade clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This seal of approval from the FDA is backed by substantial evidence from numerous clinical studies and their results.
Quick and Effective Treatment
Collagen induction therapy procedures performed with the SkinPen last for approximately 30 minutes. During this treatment, patients rarely report feeling little to no discomfort, and many say that collagen induction therapy is a much gentler approach to skincare compared with other treatment methods like chemical peels or laser resurfacing. The SkinPen allows the esthetician or a dermatologist to adjust the depth of the needles within the device to customize it based on the particular patient being treated, their level of skin damage, and their goals for treatment.
In addition to being quick and painless, there is also very minimal downtime (approximately 24 hours) after an individual has been treated using the SkinPen. Side effects after a collagen induction therapy procedure that involves the SkinPen are minimal, and typically only include slight swelling and redness that will last for 2-4 days following treatment.
Versatility for All Patients
There are no special requirements for individuals to qualify as candidates for treatment with the SkinPen. This device is ideal for all skin types, and can be applied to many areas of the body, not only the face.
An added benefit of selecting the SkinPen for collagen induction therapy treatments is that it is often a much more cost-effective solution than other alternatives. With chemical peels or cosmetic injections, individuals often have to pay the added cost per unit of product that they are receiving.
