Collagen Induction Therapy
Collagen induction therapy is a new technique in aesthetic medicine that can reduce the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, and the overall appearance of the skin. Our cosmetic surgeon is proud to provide collagen induction therapy in Roswell, Georgia.
What are the benefits?
This treatment reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, thus producing younger-looking skin. Collagen induction therapy also reduces the appearance of hyper- and hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, scars, and stretch marks. This creates a fresher appearance and glowing skin.
What areas of the body can be treated?
Collagen induction therapy can be used on all areas of the body.
How is the procedure performed?
A sterile cartridge tip with 12 points is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen™. A thin layer of topical gel is placed on your skin. After 15 minutes, the pen is gently pressed against the skin while gliding in one direction. This is done until the entire area has been treated. During this time, a hyaluronic acid is applied, which attracts 300% water, thus plumping the skin.
How long does the procedure take?
Depending on the size of the treatment area, the procedure usually takes 30 to 45 minutes.
What is the downtime?
You will notice redness in the skin immediately after treatment. Usually, the redness lasts for two to four days. Some patients heal completely in 24 hours.
When will I see results?
You will notice an immediate glow to your skin. Other changes to the skin will develop over the course of several days and weeks. Your results will continue to improve for up to six months after treatment as your skin continues producing collagen.
How many treatments will I need?
Some patients require only a single treatment per year to reach optimal results. However, most patients require a series of two to three treatments spaced about six to eight weeks apart. If you have deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks, or acne scars, Dr. Robert Golden may recommend six to eight sessions at six week intervals.
