For those who have had a long battle with acne, it can be a tiring experience. The need for medication and treatment to keep treacherous pimples at bay is a constant struggle, and acne scars act as an unfortunate tribute to the epic clash. Even long after your acne has subsided, the scars persist as an unfriendly reminder of your acne-filled past. Luckily, there is an incredible treatment, collagen induction therapy, that works to reduce the appearance of acne scars and leaves your skin looking healthy and smooth. Collagen induction therapy (CIT) is available at Siti Med Spa in San Diego, and to schedule a free consultation give us a call at (619) 717-8484.
What is Collagen Induction Therapy?
Collagen induction therapy, also known as microneedling or skin needling, is an amazing treatment that works to stimulate the collagen and elastin naturally produced in your skin. Collagen and elastin are the substances that keep your skin elastic, firm, and youthful, and over time the body stops producing as much collagen. This procedure works to enhance the amount of collagen you produce, providing a natural way to reduce wrinkles, improve skin tone, and reduce the appearance of scars.
How Does Collagen Induction Therapy Treat Acne Scars?
Collagen induction therapy uses tiny needles in a DermaPen to create micro wounds on the area where acne scars are prevalent. These wounds start your natural healing process, leading to a rush of collagen, elastin, and new skin cells to the new tiny wounds over your acne scars. The collagen, elastin, and new skin cells rush to the acne scars, working to improve the texture and feel of your skin while reducing the appearance of the scars.
Combine CIT With Platelet Rich Plasma For Best Results
If you really want to maximize the effectiveness of your acne scar treatment, we suggest combining collagen induction therapy (CIT) with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy. PRP therapy will take a small amount of your blood and concentrate it to only the essential components needed to heal skin tissue. Then, this platelet-rich plasma will be injected back into your skin through collagen induction therapy using a DermaPen. By using microneedling, the PRP will initiate a stem cell response to further stimulate the production of collagen, leading to even better results with your acne scars.
