COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY
Microneedling, or collagen-based induction therapy (CIT), is a minimally invasive treatment available at Envy Aesthetic Center and Azul Medspa Laser Clinic & Skin Care, located in El Paso, TX, for the treatment of multiple skin issues. Dr. Weeks and his aesthetic staff have high standards for their medical devices.
SkinPen® which is used for all microneedling treatments at our facility is safe, effective, American-made, and FDA-cleared. In fact, SkinPen®, by Crown Aesthetics, is the world’s first FDA-cleared microneedling device for aesthetic use.
WHAT IS SKINPEN® MICRONEEDLING?
SkinPen® Precision microneedling can improve the appearance of your skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and in some cases improve the appearance of acne scars with minimal downtime. The results are natural and improve with time.* SkinPen® offers versatile precision with different penetration depths (light, medium, and deep) for different skin issues.
There are 3 phases to SkinPen® microneedling:
- 1. Inflammation: The SkinPen® microneedling treatment creates thousands of microchannels in the skin which injures the affected skin causing it to stimulate the body’s natural healing response to create new tissue.
2. Proliferation: The wounded skin is re-built with granulation cells (new connective tissue and microscopic blood vessels) which is made up of a substantial amount of collagen and elastin.
3. Remodeling: The wound heals with new tissue and blood vessels.
WHAT DOES SKINPEN® MICRONEEDLING TREAT?
SkinPen® microneedling is used by our aesthetic staff on numerous areas of the body, including the face, neck, décolletage, and hands to improve the following skin issues:
- ✔ Crepey Skin
