The concept of the Collagen Induction Therapy (also known as skin needling) 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 occurs to the skin, the body removes the damaged collagen, elastin and other structures which are then replaced by the 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. Results can be quite spectacular!.
The micro-needles penetrate the top layers of the skin and create pin-point injuries in the deeper layers. This triggers the body's natural wound healing response. As a result, new collagen and elastin is formed to reduce wrinkle depth, increase skin elasticity and improve the appearance of scars and other skin flaws.
