Collagen Induction Therapy (CID) is performed using microneedling to create micro-wounds in the dermis. This treatment allows your body's own PRP to be driven deep into the skin. The micro-wounds trigger the body to produce new collagen and elastin and increase the skin's ability to utilize nutrients by up to 3000%. The results are improved skin texture and a reduced appearance of wrinkles, stretch marks and acne scars.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that aims to treat scar tissue, lax skin, wrinkles, and large pores by increasing collagen production. It sounds scary—and it does involve needles piercing the skin—but the needles are very fine and short, and only mildly uncomfortable. And the advantages of the procedure greatly outweigh the disadvantages.
At Foothills, the treatment is performed in a sterile environment and takes less than an hour. Staff will provide instruction on post treatment skin care and establishing a quality skin care regimen.
Microneedling with PRP is also highly effective for treating hair loss and stimulating new hair growth.
