Results obtained from Collagen Induction Therapy are from treatment with medical dermarollers not the homecare dermaroller
Collagen Induction Therapy (short: CIT) is a new therapy for skin cell regeneration. Before CIT only invasive methods (laser and dermabrasion) were used for skin rejuvenation. The disadvantages of these techniques are that the epidermis is removed and the tissue reacts to this massive cell damage by forming scar tissue.
The mechanism of action of Collagen Induction Therapy works differently. It is based on scientific facts that skin cells communicate by electrical signals. When the skin is microneedled, cells react to this intrusion by changing their internal electrical potential. This electrical charge in return stimulates skin cells to release chemical compositions, protein and growth factors. Proliferated skin cells, such as fibroblasts, migrate to the point of injury and transform into collagen fibers.
The advantages of Collagen Induction Therapy:
- No open wound
- Non ablative
- Very short healing time and post treatment inflammation when compared with laser and dermabrasion
- No risk of photosensitivity or hyperpigmentation
- No post treatment infections
- Patients do not need to take extended time off work.
dr. dermacare dermarollers™ are medical devices and should only be used by trained professionals.
Stretch Marks & Wrinkles
Medical rolling can stimulate cell regeneration and reduce the appearance of unsightly and embarrassing stretch marks caused through pregnancy or puberty or weight gain/loss.
The first signs of aging skin on the face are fine lines e.g. crows feet. The skin loses its elasticity, collagen breaks down and the skin holds less moisture.
What can be done to roll back the years? The answer is CIT!
Depending on skin type, 1 to 4 medical rolling treatments every 4 to 6 weeks will give dramatic results. To maintain the results we recommend another Collagen Induction Therapy treatment annually. In between medical treatments we recommend you use the dr. dermacare home roller with the dr. dermacare serum that bests suits your skin. Remember to always use sunscreen even in winter!
