Collagen Induction Therapy

What is Automated Micro-Needling?

Automated micro-needling (also known as collagen induction therapy or CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine that can help eliminate the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the skin’s overall appearance.* During this procedure, the Eclipse MicroPen® is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. Eclipse MicroPen® is the most advanced medical-grade automated micro-needling device on the market.

What are the benefits?*

The benefits of micro-needling can include a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. It can also have a positive effect on the appearance of hyper-pigmentation and hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks and create a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.

What areas of the body is this procedure commonly used?

Eclipse MicroPen® can be used on all parts of the body; face, neck, decollete, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.

How is the procedure done?

A sterile cartridge tip containing 12 points is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen®. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of topical gel to your skin and select the appropriate pen setting based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire area has been covered.

What does it feel like?

The feeling associated with the Eclipse MicroPen® is similar to light sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating MicroPen® tip reduces discomfort while the applied hydrating gel also makes the procedure more tolerable.

What is the downtime?

Immediately after the procedure you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the Eclipse MicroPen® setting used and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs. On average, patients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Some patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours. Utilizing your own Platelet-Rich Plasma, will speed up the post-care process.

When will I see results?

Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results continue to improve up to 6 months after the procedure as collagen production continues.

How many appointments are needed?

To see optimal results, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 sessions spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars, your skin care provider may recommend 6-8 sessions at 6 week intervals.

What is the difference using human growth factors and your own platelet-rich plasma during the Eclipse Micropen procedure?

Platelet-Rich Plasma

This is the best way to synthesize the body’s healing ability, platelets and other components in human blood migrate to the point of care. Platelets are well known to release numerous growth factors that respond to tissue injury and initiate and promote the conditions for healing. PRP is an autologous system that allows physicians to prepare platelet- rich plasma at the patient point of care.

Human Growth Factors 

It is specifically designed to aid in the lubrication and enhancement of the skin. MicroGlide GF™ uses mesenchymal stem cell growth factor (GF) to optimize the skin’s response to the Eclipse MicroPen® procedure. To produce Stem Growth Factors, special types of mesenchymal stem cells are cultured in the laboratory and utilized to create more of the beneficial molecules. The product doesn’t contain any cells, only the bio-signals produced. HGF promotes improved conditions for healing with reduced inflammation, naturally occurring peptide and protein signaling molecules and controls cellular growth, proliferation, healing and differentiation.

Telemedicine

What is my body trying to tell me?

Your body is internally connected, constantly communicating between systems and cells. This communication is critical to basic life
functions, like moving, growing, and healing, all taking place on a subconscious level. Even though you may not be consciously aware of everything that’s going on inside your body, you can be sure that It’s working full-time, doing its best with available resources. What would happen if you could discover your body’s preference for nutrition, what vitamins or minerals or enzymes it needed in order to a better job? Would you give it what it asked for? Could a proactive approach to wellness help you function at a higher level or even avoid some types of illnesses?

As a society, we spend billions of dollars each year pursuing better health. We buy drugs, try to eat the right foods and take health supplements to help us achieve and maintain peak performance. But how much of this is guess work, how do you know if you’re making the best choices for you as an individual?

Using biocommunication you can discover specific, individualized information that will help you and your healthcare professional design a personalized health and nutrition program. It provides insights that can make a significant difference. Providing your body with the specific nutrition and care it needs allows it to perform at its highest level. When you’re functioning on ‘all cylinders’ you feel better and have more energy. Specialized wellness and decision support software can help you maximize your investment in health. It can assist you in getting the most out of life! If your body knows what it wants perhaps all you have to do is ask!

What is it like to get a scan?

Getting a biocommunication scan is a simple and painless process. Simply place your hand on the hand cradle while a scan is run. During the scan, subtle energetic impulses are introduced to your body through multiple input channels including the hand cradle. Your body will naturally respond to this communication and the software records each response. Although a few people may be able to sense this energetic communication, most are unaware that the scan is taking place.

Types of scans

Scans are organized into what are called biosurveys. You’ve probably filled out a survey before; a series of questions that you provide answers to. A biosurvey is essentially the same thing, only you don’t answer the ‘questions’ consciously, you answer them subconsciously. With biocommunication scanning, the ‘question’ is the subtle energetic impulse called a Virtual Stimulus Item or VSI, and your response, which is recorded and analyzed by the software, is a change in the electrical properties of your skin.

Different biosurveys will include different VSIs. Some biosurveys are general in nature and include VSIs concerned with overall wellness, others include VSIs relating to specific areas of the body or body processes, and some may deal with environmental factors like toxins or allergens. A biosurvey can be as varied and versatile as any other survey. Health practitioners use biocommunication to help them make better decisions for their patients. That’s why this technology is referred to as decision support technology. It’s important to note that ZYTO scans do not treat or diagnose.

Bioenergetic Technology Overview

Bioenergetic Medicine combines leading-edge technology with Western and Oriental medical theories and adds a crucial component for any practice wishing to achieve the best results with the fewest side-effects while drastically reducing cost. Bioenergetic technology may be divided into three broad categories characterized by each unit’s degree of credibility based on A. method of measurement, B. level of interference by the practitioner, C. ability to give consistently-credible information, and D. ease of use.

How bioenergetic technology interfaces with the body

The most common method of measurement in category one and two devices is Galvanic Skin Response (GSR), which is a global marker for measuring brain activity related to clinical stress. This makes it useful not only for polygraph tests, but also to measure responses to any type of health challenge.

More specifically, in order to maintain (or regain) optimal health, the body’s systems must maintain balance. To do so, it must continually react to hundreds or thousands of stressors (bacteria, toxins, physical injury, negative emotions, and even gravity – as blood pressure throughout the body must be regulated depending on the body’s position). GSR shifts each time the brain reacts to any stressor and the degree of that reaction is captured by the measuring technology.

A promising future for medicine

Bioenergetic Technology promises to revolutionize the healthcare industry by providing vast amounts of reliable information quickly, non-invasively, and inexpensively. It is not a replacement for other medical approaches, but optimizes them by assisting medical professionals in selecting the best course and easily personalizing their application to each individual patient.
