What is Collagen Rejuvenation Therapy?
MICRONEEDLING - CRT
Collagen Rejuvenation Therapy also known as CRT is used for skin tightening, enhances skin elasticity, reduces wrinkles, acne scars, and stretch marks, as well as improves and smoothes skin texture. Micro needling therapy is an advanced non-surgical skin treatment that uses very small needles to perforate the skin, increases collagen as well as tightens the skin. This treatment targets and penetrates deep layers of the skin to stimulate the collagen. Micro needling therapy acts as a healing system to reduce wrinkles and firm the skin. The treatment has little to no discomfort, you will feel a brief prickling sensation which will leave you with toned and youthful skin.

How Does Collagen Rejuvenation Work?
This treatment combines the advantages of radio frequency thermal technology and ultrasonic cavitation (if needed) with micro needling therapy to achieve the most optimal treatment.
During Micro Needling, we’ll use a medical pen-like tool to create controlled and minimal injury to areas of your skin that need improvement. This treatment helps patients reduce and treat acne scars, fine lines, and leads to a better overall skin appearance.
As each miniscule needle enters the skin, micro-wounds are created. These tiny wounds signal your body to fill them in as part of the natural healing process. As this occurs, new elastin and collagen are created. These help reduce signs of aging and lead to a more youthful look with fewer wrinkles.
Micro Needling treatment can often be combined with gels or creams that will improve your look even further. Our patients have been thrilled with the results of their Micro Needling treatments.
If reducing your wrinkles and scars has been a losing battle, or if want to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, Micro Needling treatments may be the technique that helps you achieve the results you’ve been seeking.
Our patients say that this treatment has boosted their self-confidence and made them look younger than they have in years.
Because Micro Needling promotes increased elastin and collagen production, you’ll soon notice that scars and wrinkles that have been a source of concern will no longer be an issue. That’s because as skin thickens thanks to extra collagen, your face will gain that smoother complexion you’ve been looking for. Continued treatments should help ensure results last.
And Micro Needling is convenient. The procedure can be done in our La Jolla office. There’s no need for a hospital stay or long recovery time.
Micro Needling is a less expensive anti-aging option than more invasive procedures. And it can tackle skin problems that peels alone cannot.
Our team customize treatments for each patient, and we have topical anesthetics that make Micro Needling just about painless.
How many treatment sessions are needed varies depending on the patient and his or her aesthetic goals. They are generally spaced apart by about four to six weeks. A minimum of 6 treatments is recommended.
The passage of time doesn’t have to mean wrinkles and lines will dominate your skin. For younger-looking and revitalized skin, Micro Needling could be the treatment for you. Contact us today and learn how Micro- Needling can help your look remain young and vital.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Stretch marks- Whether its the "leftovers" from pregnancy or weight reduction or other causes CRT works.

Hypo pigmentation- CRT can help in that area too.

What Can I Expect From This Treatment?

You may experience minor redness and swelling for 1-2 days, similar to the feeling of a sunburn with some minor peeling or flakiness. You should not pick at the loose skin. Pinpoint bleeding will resolve spontaneously. Everyone heals differently and is a case by case basis. An initial improvement is noticed is due to the direct radio frequency thermal effect on collagen tightening. The late results are seen due to induction of the neo-collagenesis, this process can take a few months. Most patients see excellent results after the first procedure, however for best results based on consultation we may recommend following with 6-10 treatments. Collagen remodeling takes 2-3 months, Results continue to improve for months after the final treatment. Typically, patients spread out their sessions once every 4- 6 weeks.
