Did you know that collagen is the skin’s Superhero? Collagen is the protein responsible for the strength and texture of our skin. Abundant collagen is the reason why kids and babies have that soft, luminous glow. The youthful face—the face we all admire—is one that is collagen-rich. But as the years go by the collagen in our skin begins to degrade, and slowing collagen production causes the skin on our face to become looser and the cushioning underneath thinner. The result? Wrinkles and folds begin to take hold.
Collagen Induction Therapy, commonly referred to as MicroNeedling, is a non-invasive, “lunchtime” procedure that promotes your body’s own collagen renewal processes. No need for surgery or injections. MicroNeedling stimulates your body to produce collagen all on its own, naturally.
At Villano | MD we use the Rejuvapen System, which utilizes a 9, 3, 4 and 5 micro needle tip cartridge that penetrates deep into the skin. The micro-needles produce infinitesimal “micro-tears” in the skin that spur the body’s own reparative collagen renewal. After a series of three to six MicroNeedling treatments, you will be fielding compliments all around on your fresh and glowing complexion.
This innovative technology can help improve the appearance of many skin issues with very little recovery time. Add our special Growth Factor Package for more rapid results, or try MicroNeedling with a boost: PRP MicroNeedling. The “PRP” stands for the platelet-rich plasma we isolate from a sample of your blood and reapply through the micro-channels that are created during the MicroNeedling process. PRP contains a high concentration of the platelets, stem cells and growth factors that help in the generation of collagen cells—your own body’s PRP boosting your own body’s collagen renewal. What could be more natural? Collagen induction therapy can also focus on problem areas around the face with MicroNeedling PLUS. Using a specialized head, your aesthetician can target problem spots such as acne scars, oversized pores, and fine lines through micro-targeted collagen induction to help minimize facial roughness in those areas of the face.
