Losing collagen in your skin is a normal part of the aging process, if you feel like you have started to lose the firmness and volume in your skin, then you may want to consider collagen induction therapy. As a very popular procedure, collagen induction therapy is great because it not only works, but the process is fairly natural as well. But how does it work and why is it so popular? Let’s take a closer look.
How Does It Work?
If you’ve ever had a sunburn, then you may be surprised to see how quickly your skin heals itself after an injury. Collagen induction therapy works in a similar way except rather than making accidental injuries it makes purposeful ones which then triggers your skin’s natural response to heal itself. While your skin is healing, it creates new collagen and elastin in the process.
Here at Dr. Stockton’s office, she likes to use the Eclipse MicroPen. This form of collagen induction therapy is similar to microneedling and involves the use of 12 tiny micro-needles that are then attached to the MicroPen. To start out, Dr. Stockton will apply a thin topical gel to your skin and will then gently glide the MicroPen across your face in one direction. As the MicroPen is going across your skin, it creates controlled micro-injuries which produce new collagen and elastin.
Why Is It Popular?
The biggest reason why collagen induction therapy is popular is that it actually works. Rather than wasting your money on over-the-counter tools that have large claims but don’t really deliver results, when you invest in collagen induction, you can expect real results every time. Another reason why it’s so popular is that it doesn’t involve any sort of toxins or fillers which makes it more natural.
