Collagen Induction Therapy
Collagen Induction Therapy also known as Stem Cell Facial, is a non-invasive treatment made up of micro needling and small injections into targeted areas of the face. The injections are small and similar to those used in anti-wrinkle injections and dermal filler treatment.
WHO IS THE IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY?
PRP is autologous, which means it comes from one’s own body. Therefore, in theory, we should all be good candidates for this treatment if we want to improve the quality and appearance of our skin. Specifically, collagen induction therapy can be used to treat dark circles around the eyes, dull, rough or grey skin tone and texture, sun damaged skin, acne scarring and crows’ feet.
HOW IS COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY DIFFERENT FROM DERMAL FILLERS?
Dermal fillers are made from substance that mimics what is naturally found under the skin and are like a gel that fills in lines and folds on the face. The body absorbs the product within 6 to 12 months and a repeat treatment is then required. PRP stimulates the body to create its own new collagen and tissue to create youthful volume and improve tone and texture. If can often be used in areas where dermal fillers are not safe. PRP treatment does not target individual lines and wrinkles but rather improves the overall quality of an area.
