COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY
This state-of-the-art device uses ‘collagen induction therapy’ to treat wrinkles, large pores and melasma (also known as skin discoloration), as well as acne and surgical scars.
With Dermace Advanced Skin Care Clinic, as few as three non-invasive treatments spaced 30 days apart, you can improve the appearance of your skin for well over six months after your last treatment.
Microneedling is a minimal invasive procedure where your Registered Nurse provider creates tiny punctures in the skin using micro-fine needles (from 0.5 to 2.5 millimetres in diameter)
The SkinPen micro needling device creates these controlled micro-injures to stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process. These tiny micro injuries trigger the release of cytokines and growth factors that lead to the remodelling of the collagen and elastin.
Microneedling stimulates the three phases of wound repair:
Penetrating the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, eliminate debrids, increase blood flow and create new tissue.
The wound is then re-build with new granulation cells, as well as a temporary (type 3) collagen and elastin, which is part of the extracellular matrix.
Additionally, a new network of blood vessels will develop.
The wound has now been replaced with new dermal tissue and blood vessels. The type 3 collagen will be replaced with stronger type 1 collagen, which contracts to generate a tightening effect on the skin.
The procedure is comfortable, most patients report feeling only a slight vibration. Because we take the extra time to use a topical anaesthetic, we are able to provide a more effective treatment with little, if any discomfort.
Rejuvenated skin can be seen eight to ten days following your procedure. A course of at least three micro-needling sessions is usually recommended to achieve optimal results; however, almost all our patients will notice a healthy glow to their skin the next day after the treatment.
