How Collagen Induction Therapy Works

Micro needling pen is , high-speed microneedling device for facial rejuvenation, treatment of fine lines, acne scarring, and mild dyschromias or skin pigment issues.  Compared to traditional dermal rollers, the micro-needling device performs highly accurate and controlled punctures of the epidermis to promote new collagen fibers (neo-collagenesis), elastin, and new capillaries for improved blood supply (neo-angiogenesis) in the treated area.  In response to this stimulus, the skin thickens and ultimately replenishes the skin through improved contour, texture, and color.  Scars, fine lines, and texture irregularities are significantly improved with this technology.  The fine channels created in the skin also allow for absorption of topical solutions and serums which allows for faster healing, improved nourishment of the deeper layers of the skin (the dermis), and overall more effective rejuvenation.

C.I.T. SHOULD BE AVOIDED IF YOU:

 

Have had treatment using Botox®, Dysport®, Juvéderm®, or any dermal filler within two weeks of receiving C.I.T.

Have had any type of facial ablation (microdermabrasion, chemical peel, laser treatment, etc) within six weeks.

Have had any type of facial surgery within six weeks.

Have used harsh products, including Retin-A, in the past 7-10 days.

Have active acne.

Have a fever blister. If you are prone to getting fever blisters or are known to have HSV (Herpes Simplex Virus) around the mouth or treatment area, you may need to take an anti-viral therapy for 3-5 days prior to treatment.

WHAT TO DO TO ENSURE YOU GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR MICRONEEDLING TREATMENTS?

Make sure you are on a good home care program that consists of vitamin A serum, vitamin C powder, antioxidants and nourishing lipids.  We also highly recommend using Stem Factor.

Use a home care roller weekly to ensure you are getting the most out of your products and also preventing congestion of the skin that can lead to breakouts and dull look of the skin.

*Caution should be taken if you have an autoimmune disorder.

10 TIPs For Skin Care

Mamta, licensed Medical Esthetic Practitioner and Certified Oncology Esthetician with nearly 10 years of skin care experience and the owner of the aura s Skin Care and laser in burnaby BC Canada,.

  1. DON’T WASH WITH A CLEANSER THAT CREATES A LOT OF LATHER

Bar soap and many foaming cleansers have high pH balances with harsh ingredients that strip the water and natural oils out of the skin. Then you have to put your moisturizer on to restore what you just removed! It makes no sense! Choose either lotion-based or gel cleansers that avoid the harsh ingredients. Remember the rule: More lather, more drying; less lather, less drying!

  1. SECRET INGREDIENT: USE GLYCOLIC ACID

Studies show that glycolic acid (the most effective of the alpha hydroxyl acids) helps to reduce past sun damage, smooth and soften the skin, fade post-breakout marks, reduce clogged pores and breakouts, and increase the cell turnover rate. Moisturizers and cleansers that contain Glycolic Acid won’t always do the trick. To keep any type of skin looking beautiful, incorporate an alcohol-free, pure glycolic acid serum into your nightly skin care routine. Contact at aura skin care and laser for appropriate % for your skin type.

  1. USE AN ALCOHOL-FREE TONER

“I don’t like to use toners because they dry out my skin.” We hear this comment a lot, and it’s because most toners on the market contain SD Alcohol 40, which is extremely drying to the skin and will encourage dry skin cell buildup. But toners that are alcohol-free will not strip the skin and are a crucial step in a good skin care regimen. They remove cleanser residue and chlorine found in tap water; when the toner is left damp on the skin, your moisturizer will seal in the water and the beneficial ingredients. The result is healthier, hydrated, and plumped up skin.

  1. MINERAL MAKE-UP:

Mineral powders were introduced several years back, and are all the rage for women searching for that perfect foundation makeup. Natural, crushed minerals such as mica, micronized titanium dioxide, and zinc oxide, create a powder foundation that leaves the skin with a luminescent, incredible glow.

  1. WEAR A MOISTURIZER WITH A SUNSCREEN 365 DAYS A YEAR, RAIN OR SHINE, INSIDE AND OUT

Studies indicate that 78% of the sun exposure you get in a lifetime is incidental exposure.

6.WHATCH FACE EXPRESSIONS:

We know that sun damage causes lines and wrinkles, but they’re also caused by facial expressions (think of smiling as the cause of crow’s feet around the eyes). When drinking through a straw, you have to purse your lips, causing unnecessary wrinkles and lines around the mouth. If you’re concerned about lines and wrinkles, then drinking directly from the glass is a much better option.

  1. KNOW HOW TO PROPERLY CARE FOR YOU BLEMISHES TO AVOID SCARING

When a blemish first starts to form, ask you: What kind of blemish is it?

CYSTIC

These are those hard, sore lumps under the skin (most often occurring in the chin and jaw area) that linger for weeks.

What NOT to do: Don’t pick! They hurt. And you know that something is under there and if you pick at it long enough, you’ll get that infection out, right? Wrong! You need to understand that true cystic blemishes will never come up to the surface. They develop deep in the dermis layer of the skin, and they heal there also. Left alone, the infection is not meant to come out of the skin. So if you pick at it repeatedly, yes, you might eventually get a little something out, but by that time, you have torn up the skin so severely that you’re guaranteed to have a discolored mark for months or SOME SKIN TYPE IT WILL BE PERMANENT SCAR.

ON SURFACE, INFECTED BLEMISH?

These are traditional blemishes or zits. They are red, moderately sore, larger in size, and form a yellowish whitehead after a day or two.

What NOT to do: Don’t pick this type of blemish the minute you feel it forming; rather, wait until it is ready. Why? Because if you attack it right away when the infection isn’t ready to come out yet, you start injuring the skin which will result in a scar.

What WILL help: The key here is to leave it alone and don’t touch the skin until the infection has reached the surface, which is usually 1-2 days after the blemish first appears. Then you can carefully wrap your fingers and gently try to squeeze out the infection. Remember the rule: three strikes and you’re out! If it doesn’t come out after three tries, leave it alone and try again the next day. Once you do get the infection out, then apply a spot drying treatment because now it can really get into the skin and heal up any remaining infection. With a blemish, the goals are to eradicate it and to prevent a red mark that lingers for months.

  1. CONSIDER PERMANENT MAKEUP

For most women, eyebrows get sparse as they age, so they need to use eyebrow pencil to create the brows that they once had. But women must be careful not to use a pencil that’s too dark or to make each brow a different shape or height. A popular procedure is permanent makeup or cosmetic tattooing.

  1. ALWAYS WASH YOUR SKIN AND MOISTURIZE AT BEDTIME

The latest research indicates that the skin repairs itself most effectively at night, between 10 PM and 11 PM, indicating the need for night cream application before midnight.

  1. GET A PROFESSIONAL FACIAL

Think of facials as maintenance for the health of your skin! As the skin ages, circulation and metabolism slow down, resulting in tired and dull-looking skin. One of the benefits of a facial is increased circulation and oxygen, resulting in healthy, glowing skin!
