Reversing Deep Wrinkles: The Role of Collagen Induction Therapy

deep wrinkles

Are you wishing for smoother, younger-looking skin? Although you can’t turn back the clock, there are effective treatments that can improve the appearance of your skin.

One of the newer treatments for rejuvenating and refreshing the skin’s appearance is collagen induction therapy. It offers rapid results and has a variety of skin benefits, including combating deep wrinkles and improving the appearance of scar tissue.

It’s a popular treatment that offers real results.

Here’s a look at collagen induction therapy and what it can do for your skin.

What Is Collagen Induction Therapy?

Collagen induction therapy, also known as microneedling, skin needling and dry tattooing, is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that stimulates collagen and elastin production beneath the skin. The treatment reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and leads to a smoother, glowing appearance.

With a dermal pen or a tattoo device, tiny needles puncture the skin, creating microscopic injuries in the dermis. This breaks up collagen fibers, encouraging the development of new collagen with long-lasting results.

Microneedling is a versatile and accessible treatment that’s suitable for all skin types and ages. The procedure is not recommended for those undergoing chemotherapy, radiation, or taking certain medications for severe acne. It is also not ideal for individuals with psoriasis or eczema.

Microneedling can address many skin concerns, and there are a variety of benefits associated with this innovative treatment.

Increased Collagen Production

Collagen is essential in repairing and healing damaged skin cells. As we age, collagen production begins to slow down. By age 30, you start to lose 1% of your collagen each year.

This leads to an increase in lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Microneedling helps break up old collagen fibers.

This allows for new collagen production and a more youthful, glowing complexion.

Improves Sun Damage and Hyperpigmentation

Sun damage is a common problem, especially for older adults. Although prevention is the best medicine, there is something you can do to minimize the damaging effects of the sun.

Microneedling helps reduce the appearance of sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and age spots. Unfortunately, too much fun in the sun often leads to damaged skin and a brown, blotchy complexion.

Collagen induction therapy stimulates collagen growth to even out skin tone, rejuvenate the skin, and reverse the appearance of sun damage.

Reduces Fine Lines and Deep Wrinkles

As we age, fine lines and wrinkles begin to creep up little by little. For some people, sun damage, smoking, and other habits can lead to premature aging of the skin.

Skin needling sessions boost collagen and elastin production. This fights lines and wrinkle formation while stimulating the body to produce new skin cells.

This revolutionary procedure can give you a more youthful appearance, including a reduction of the appearance of crow’s feet, fine lines, and forehead wrinkles.

You may notice an improvement with one microneedling treatment. Significant results are more likely after a few sessions.

Minimizes Pore Appearance

Do you wish you could shrink your large pores? You may think it’s impossible, but microneedling could make a difference.

Although microneedling creates tiny holes with a needling device, it doesn’t make your pores larger. In fact, it shrinks the look of pores and improves the texture of the skin.

The treatment stimulates and plumps the skin, decreasing the appearance of large pores. Collagen induction therapy can lead to a smoother, more refined complexion over time.

Improves Acne Scars

Acne not only affects the look of your skin, it also affects your self-esteem. A hard battle with acne can leave scars behind.

Microneedling can reduce the appearance of acne scars as it evens the tone and texture of your skin. Many people show a significant improvement in their acne scarring after a few microneedling sessions.

As the collagen level of the skin increases, the plumping effect helps to minimize acne scars from the inside out.

Smooths Stretch Marks

Stretch marks and scars are difficult to hide and even harder to get rid of. This is especially true if you’re relying on topicals to do the job.

Skin needling can help drastically reduce the appearance of stretch marks and other types of scars on the body without tattoo pigment. Hence it is also referred to as inkless camouflage.

Works as an Alternative to Laser Treatment

Laser treatments are very effective but can be expensive. The results of collagen induction therapy are comparable to how laser treatments can smooth wrinkles and improve facial scarring.

The good news is that microneedling treatments are typically less expensive and require less downtime than laser procedures and there is no heat involved with microneedling, thus safe for Rosacea and melasma clients.

Is Microneedling Painful?

While the thought of little needles piercing the skin all at once may seem painful, it’s a treatment that’s used by many people, including people with sensitive skin.

A numbing cream can be used before the procedure to minimize any minor discomfort. In the days after skin needling or inkiness camouflage, you may notice some pink or reddish skin.

This is completely normal and temporary and will fade away on its own.

Is Collagen Induction Therapy Right for You?

If you’re searching for ways to look younger, reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles, or improve acne scarring, microneedling may be the perfect solution.

The procedure stimulates the formation of collagen and elastin, which can lead to dramatic improvements in skin plumpness, tone, texture, and smoothness.
