PCI, known as percutaneous collagen induction, also known as CIT collagen induction therapy, equals the process of micro-needling. This process involves pricking the skin multiple times using a specially designed device with needles to induce regeneration, and promoting wound healing thus this affects the epidermis. Micro-injury to the keratinocytes promotes several epidermal growth factor which causes epidermal thickening and an increase of cell function. The effect by micro-needling increases the right ingredients into the fibroblast which keeps the skin young. By implementing the required nutrients, Vitamin A and C and Hyaluronic Acid, to increase the synthesis of collagen and elastin. The importance of these nutrients, by the channel of micro-needling to the depth that is needed, is to support the fibroblast, thus producing collagen. This procedure takes an hour and a half, and a slight pinkness to redness will be evident after treatment.
This treatment, intense pulse light, uses short blasts of a polychromatic, high-intensity light to penetrate just below the skin's surface. It is used for age spots or blood vessels that create broken capillaries. IPL are touted for a way to boost collagen and elastin, it general takes a series of treatments to see the best results, perhaps three to six treatments about a month apart. There is no down time and session are about 45 minutes long.
Low level light therapy has its scientific breakthrough of harnessing the natural power of light. it is synthesis of Photo-Dynamic Therapy. This procedure is non-evasive it offers dramatic age-defying results. Light therapy affects tissue at a cellular level using low-level LED lights. This stimulation of collagen and essential protein used to repair and replace old damaged skin tissue. Increasing vascularity by enhancing new blood capillaries which provide an abundance of oxygen and nutrients to the skin. This is a no pain no down time procedure, 20 minutes of pure regeneration.
