According to the statistics published by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), there has been a 43% increase in patients receiving minimally invasive non-surgical procedures. The ASPS predicts that these minimally invasive non-surgical procedures will outnumber surgical procedures soon. Patients are demanding not only less invasive, but highly effective aesthetic treatments. Peach has numerous methods to help tighten skin, resurface the skin, and help lighten scars.  However, one treatment stands above all when it comes to efficacy and value to the patient. This treatment is known as Collagen Induction Therapy. Many patients have heard of this treatment by their popular names which include, Vampire Facial, Angel Facial, Microneedling, etc. 

Collagen Induction Therapy is showing promise with tissue regeneration and creating a normal collagen lattice. Collagen Induction Therapy works by creating thousands of micro clefts through the epidemeris into the papillary dermis. These tiny wounds in the papillary dermis create a virtually confluent zone of superficial bleeding that is a powerful stimulus to initiate the normal process of wound healing. Because it is non-ablative and minimally invasive to the dermis, it can be performed on many parts of the body without the risk of hyperpigmentation. 

Another advantage of Collagen Induction Therapy is that patients have no open wounds, and because of this, the healing time is significantly reduced. There is no exposure to air or post-inflammatory reactions. The major disadvantage is the need for lengthy topical anesthetic as it can be painful to the patient.  Although structural changes to the face and body may be achieved with plastic surgery, a complete improvement in appearance must include regeneration of the skin’s tone and laxity.
