COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY - MICRONEEDLING

The mechanism of microneedling action is based on Collagen Induction Therapy, a treatment which aims to restore youth and smoothness to your skin by stimulating the natural production of collagen, the protein responsible for keeping the skin tight and firm.

 

The microneedles create small channels into the deep layers of the skin which break up the old collagen strands and stimulate the creation of new ones. 

 

Although Microneedling may look a little aggressive with its needles,

it is actually much gentler than you may think.  This is because it does not harm the epidermis - the very top layer of skin.  

 

There is no downtime and the healing is basically the same as previous treatments. You will start to notice the skin’s improvement in 4-8 weeks, as with any collagen generating device. 

 

The ACS is appropriate for all skin types and most skin concerns, especially related to anti-aging and scar reduction. It is versatile, pain-free and comes with almost no downtime at all. 

This stimulates a process of collagen production through the skin’s healing mechanism.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED AND WHEN DO YOU START TO SEE BENEFITS?

Typically a series of 3–6 treatments is performed for optimal results; however, each treatment will induce some collagen remodeling and micro-needling can be used for ongoing maintenance.

 

HOW IS ACS-PEN DIFFERENT FROM LASERS?

Unlike lasers, ACS-PEN breaks up pigment mechanically and remodels the collagen without heat. Removing heat from the equation makes for a safer, more comfortable treatment with a very low complication rate.

Advanced Cell Stimulation with ACS– PEN® is the most updated technology in micro-needling. The ACS– PEN® was designed & developed for a non-surgical cosmetic procedure by the inventor of Dermaroller concept, Horst Liebl. The ACS– PEN® is unique in engineering, precision, and efficacy. This “State-of-the-Art” device is the culmination of the inventor’s 30 years of scientific research and practical experience with microneedles in many respects.
