Collagen Inducing Facial
Aging decreases collagen and elastin synthesis which results in sagging skin, folds and fine lines. Applying collagen topically is not highly effective because the collagen molecule is too large to be absorbed.
Therefore, inducing collagen and elastin production, stimulating cell turnover, improving the micro-vascular system and increasing hydration is what this facial is about. We use a medical grade dermal roller to impart tiny, microscopic openings on the skin, thus allowing the Collagen Revival Serum to do it’s magic.
Derm Rolling or Microneedling is a useful and successful tool in the armament of the skin care professional in the fight against aging skin. Used in combination with tried and tested BiON skin care products, it can have a significant effect on the health and overall appearance of the skin with minimal downtime and discomfort. Microneedling stimulates the wound healing process to produce new collagen and elastin and therefore, reduces fine lines and wrinkles and reverses the signs of aging and photo damaged skin. Experience has shown that microneedling is also beneficial in diminishing scars, including acne scars and stretch marks. Used with BiON products, skin tone can be evened out and hyperpigmentation inhibited. Plus, by allowing BiON’s active ingredients to be introduced deeper into the epidermis, we achieve an 80% higher absorption rate for faster and greater results.
Clinical studies have shown that microneedling is more effective than ablative laser resurfacing and just as effective as non-ablative treatments like CO2 lasers in stimulating collagen and elastin production. Lasers generate a fibrosis response that promote scar collagen (thick, parallel orientated bundles), while microneedling results in increased TGF-B3, FGF-7and EGF which promotes natural collagen with scarless wound healing
