Collagen stimulation therapy promotes collagen production in your body by inserting the chemical “poly-L-lactic acid”. It is injected into the skin to help promote the production of collagen. The collagen-stimulating treatments are effective for individuals whose skin has gradually lost collagen over time.
The result of collagen loss is visible as wrinkles, skin sagging, and thinning the skin. Collagen stimulating treatments boost collagen production and help in restoring the volume and elasticity of your skin. It is known for providing your skin the youthful appearance that it had lost due to loss of collagen. Acne scars are characterized by the local depletion of collagen around the scarred tissue. To treat these scars, collagen stimulators have proved their efficiency.
Collagen is the substance that holds the body together, it is an abundantly available protein in the body. For skin, collagen provides a framework for healthy skin. It gives your skin the appearance of a smooth surface. Inflammation related to the active acne results in fat loss and dermal collagen. The body resolves the active acne breakouts; hence, collagen is no longer present to provide the support that your skin needs. The loss of collagen results in the appearance of depression or pitted acne scars. CROSS and subsicion acne scar treatment is used to treat these scars, and it is accompanied by the treatment of collagen injections for acne scars.
With the collagen stimulating injections, the body gets to promote collagen production that helps the pitted areas to replenish themselves. The growth of collagen leads to the maintenance of the surrounding scarring areas. The procedure is painless. The collagen stimulator comes in a vial that we will premix with an anesthetic to make the procedure comfortable for the patient. The patient will also be given ice before, during, and after the procedure to further reduce any pain or excessive bleeding.
Upon the completion of collagen stimulation therapy, your body requires several months to fully boost its collagen production and produce noticeable results. It is because our fibroblasts, collagen-producing cells, need time to develop a physiological memory to continually produce more collagen.
Moreover, patients will find that the additional natural collagen has longer-lasting effects – up to 5 years – than synthetic filler injections that have immediate effects on appearance but only last 2 years. To maximize the results of collagen stimulating treatments, patients usually require several rounds of collagen stimulator injections.
Immediately following the collagen scar removal treatment, patients may experience bruising, soreness, and swelling where the collagen stimulator was injected. This is typically resolved within a week of acne scar treatment. In the meantime, facial massages, icing, and avoiding UV light from the sun are essential for recovery. During your consultation and procedure, we will inform you of detailed post-care instructions that will help you achieve your desired results from the collagen treatment for acne scars.
The cost of collagen stimulator injections depends on the severity of the patient’s acne scars. Deep scars that cover multiple areas likely require more vials and rounds of collagen stimulators for patients to observe substantial results. Our expert dermatologists in California give you a proper consultation before deciding on your course of acne scar treatment.
