What is Collagen Induction Therapy?

Collagen Induction Therapy is a filler that uses your own body’s natural production of collagen to fill wrinkles, lines, hollowed cheeks and temples. They were designed to fill areas that decrease in volume as we age around the face, they’re not recommended for use in the lips, as the colour of the product can show through the fine red skin. A standard wrinkle filler should be used to augment the lips.

Two collagen induction therapy products are available; they work in very similar ways with only a few differences in their makeup. Your practitioner will discuss the pros and cons of both products with you before you decide which one will suit the area you’re looking to re-sculpt on your face.

What happens before and during the treatment?

Being an injectable product of some thickness, collagen induction therapy may cause some initial discomfort at the time of injection. The use of local anaesthetic and topical anaesthetic cream can help minimise pain at the injection sites. Ice can also be used to reduce any localised swelling in the hours and days after treatment.

*Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

What happens after this treatment?

Most patients can experience post-treatment swelling and some bruising from the needle sites. The carrier gel used is often thicker than dermal fillers and may cause more swelling for patients who are used to standard dermal filler treatments.

The stimulation of collagen can also produce mild itching in the treated areas, but this will ease with time. The products won’t be noticeable under the skin surface, however, depending on the area injected, tiny bumps may appear under the skin if it’s pulled taught. Correct massaging of the area at the time of treatment can prevent this from occurring.

Generally, these products are quite pliable and will mimic the movement of the surrounding tissue and will not be noticed by you or anyone else.

Over the next 4-6 weeks, the product will stimulate collagen factories in your skin to start filling itself. Usually, you’ll require a second top-up treatment after the initial stimulation has settled down.

Each patient responds differently depending on his or her collagen production and it’s recommended you build on the first treatment, rather than start with a larger amount. In some instances, depending on your age, the depth of the treatment area and muscle movement in the area, there may be a need for further treatments.

Once the desired volume has been achieved, results may last for up to 24 months. Future treatments are required once your body naturally processes your collagen stores.
