Collagen Induction Therapy:
A medical wrinkle therapy that really works!
The science behind collagen induction therapy (CIT) is to stimulate your own body to renew and rejuvenate your collagen and elastin. In youthful skin, collagen and elastin are replaced at a relatively rapid rate compared to when we age. As we age there is dermal tissue breakdown, this happens from a combination of intrinsic factors namely your skin’s metabolism and extrinsic factors such as exposure to sunlight and its ultraviolet rays. The collagen and elastin becomes fragmented and the older collagen has increased cross-linking which overall inhibits the strength of your skin and decreases your skin’s elasticity.
Collagen induction therapy causes your body to rush new collagen and elastin renewal properties into specific areas, plumping up your skin, improving tone and elasticity, and improving pigmentation color.
Utilizing multimodality approaches, your body can be induced to stimulated or repair targeted skin areas. These areas are typically fine lines and wrinkles but can also be used on acne scars and stretch marks. Micro needling of the skin produces a perceived injury to your skin. Hundreds of micro-channels are produced with the sterile equipment into the focused areas. Your body rallies to repair these areas, producing new collagen and elastin therefore improving the appearance of your skin.
Da Vinci Aesthetic & Regenerative Medicine takes this a step further and harnesses the power of regenerative medicine. Platelet rich plasma (PRP), which is full of your own powerful growth factors and healing properties, is utilized to help restore and repair aging collagen and elastin.
A personalized daily skin care routine is customized for you. This will help to maintain the moisture and the lipids needed to maintain the stratum corneum layer of your epidermis. This not only helps the cosmetic appearance but also helps maintain your epidermal protective barrier allowing moisture and your own natural hyaluronic acid to keep a healthy matrix where your proteins can thrive.
