What is Collagen Induction Therapy?

July 18, 2012 in Uncategorized

This may be the first time some of you are hearing about this. It sounds simple enough, but really it can be painful. Why? Because Collagen Induction Therapy is the practice of injuring your skin so when it heals, you treat it so it heals properly. It is like having a scar revised- you cut the scar again and treat it correctly while it is healing.


It is done quite successfully on the face for wrinkles and acne scars, as you can see from the photos below:

It is now gaining popularity as a stretch mark treatment. The first dermastamp (a stamp with needles) was designed by Dr. Des Fernandes, who did his first paper on the subject of Collagen Induction Therapy back in 1996. Since then, various aesthetic companies have designed a dermaroller (similar to the dermastamp, however this device actually rolls over the skin, pricking it as it goes along).


Single needling is very similar to dermastamping, it is just more time consuming as you are using a single needle as opposed to a small stamp full of needles. However, it is more precise as you can target specific areas without touching healthy, normal skin around the marks.


Now there are before and after pictures out there of dermarolling on stretch marks, such as the below:

But how can we be sure that these results are REAL? Well, I’ve decided to give it a bash to see for myself.
