Collagen Induction Therapy Fayetteville

EMPOWER YOUR SKIN TO REJUVENATE ITSELF

This is a process to wake up the dormant powers to treat scarred, wrinkled, lax skin and make new tissue without scars.  Apart from when we are in the womb, humans cannot actually regenerate their skin.  Lizards regenerate if they lose a portion of their tail but humans cannot regenerate. But, with Collagen Induction Therapy, or CIT, we actually can get the skin to regenerate again.  CIT stimulates the body to release particular Growth Factors and that allows it to regenerate itself.  Nobody can grow better skin than you can yourself! CIT provides the right environment and the right stimuli to do the job.It is not easy for people to live with ugly scars from acne, disease, or trauma, or with the premature signs of aging, but CIT offers patients a way to repair, rejuvenate and regenerate themselves without much downtime. If you’re interested in rebuilding healthy, radiant skin, contact Dr. Saira Saini at Carolina Plastic Surgery in Fayetteville, NC.

Microneedling for Collagen Induction 

How do we take advantage of our body’s ability to heal itself and get the right environment for your body to regenerate itself like it did when you were a fetus?

Medical and surgical needling is the answer.  This process releases platelets and growth factors.

Growth Factors: The Science of Rejuvenation.

  • TGF (Transformative Growth Factor)-BETA-1&2 – Healing factor. 
    Remains for 24hrs after needling.
  • TGF-BETA-3 – Responsible for scarless healing.  Remains for 2 weeks after needling!
  • TGF-ALPHA-Responsible for making skin grow and develop a thicker epidermis
  • PDGF-activating fibroblasts (responsible for making collagen and elastin)
  • CTAP III-Responsible for building more collagen and elastin
  • IL 10-Responsible for inhibiting the formation of pigmentation

Other vitamins that are essential for Collagen Induction include:

  • Vitamin A –is the fuel that the fibroblast machine needs to make Collagen I and Elastin.
  • Vitamin C-essential for the production of normal collagen.

Why is Skin Health So Important?

Collagen Induction Therapy Fayetteville

The reason a person looks attractive is a combination of factors but their entire body is clothed in the largest organ in our body – our skin.  It is critical to take care of your largest organ because you cannot survive without it and it is your first barrier against infections and other environmental toxins.  I would argue that you cannot look attractive without having beautiful skin.  Unfortunately, throughout history only the super-wealthy could afford to care for their skin.  Thankfully now we can do the same treatments that were once only available to movie stars here in Fayetteville, NC.  Skin health and skin treatments have evolved so that everyone can have their best, healthiest skin.  Technology has evolved to allow us to treat many problems with skin and to reverse signs of aging in our skin.  Dr. Saira Saini is here to educate and help you achieve your goals with treatments that are scientifically tested and we will guide you to your best skin health.

FAQ

Who should consider medical needling?

Collagen Induction Therapy can be used to rejuvenate skin.  It has been used for the following skin conditions:
* Aging skin: lift, tighten
* Fine lines and wrinkles: decrease appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
* Dull and tired-looking skin: young skin looks polished and glows.  We add chemical peels and masks during your treatment to allow your skin to lose its dull appearance
* Sagging skin: collagen and elastin help improve the appearance of skin
* Stretch marks
* Scarring

What is the difference between cosmetic needling and medical needling?

Medical Needling can only be done at a doctor’s office.  It requires a topical anesthetic to numb the skin so that we can get an effective treatment.  Cosmetic needling is done at home and it allows small channels to be made in your skin to allow skin products to penetrate deeply in the skin to allow better skin appearance.  Medical Needling allows the release of special growth factors which results in the synthesis of collagen and elastin that help regenerate your skin and remove signs of aging.  Continue with cosmetic needling at home to allow all the products that protect and nurture your skin to penetrate better and to improve your skin.  We can teach you how to enhance your home treatments and to supercharge your results.  Medical needling helps to stimulate the release of special growth factors which results in the synthesis of healthy collagen and elastin.  As a result, a stronger and healthier collagen and elastin network is created, and a thicker epidermis (outer layer of skin) is formed, making this non-surgical procedure the ideal treatment for the overall improvement of your skin’s health, wellness, texture, and quality.

What should I expect after needling treatments?

This is a guide and each individual will have their own response to the treatment:

* Day 1: Redness and tightness.  Slight swelling is normal.  You will use your hydration capsule to help (included in your post-care kit)
* Day 2: Slight redness and dryness*
* Day 3: Skin color starts to go back to normal but skin may still feel dry
* Day 4: Skin may flake but feels comfortable
* Day 5-7: Skin may continue to flake but returns back to normal by day 7.
