Numerous methods exist today to revise scars, tighten skin and target photoaging, such as laser re-surfacing and deep peeling. Yet these treatments are ablative, injuring the skin and subsequently leading to fibrosis of the papillary dermis. Percutaneous Collagen Induction proves to be a simple and fast method for safely treating wrinkles and scars, and producing smoothness naturally.


Percutaneous Collagen Induction (PCI) creates thousands of tiny needle-pricks in the superficial dermis with virtually no tissue destruction at all. The Center for Dermal Research will present Platelet-mediated Percutaneous Collagen Induction Through Microneedling the Skin, on April 28. The session will be led by Hilton Kaplan, a  plastic surgeon and biomedical engineer.


Associated upregulation of TGF-B3 to stimulate regenerative, as opposed to cicatricial, wound-healing. This process results in a confluent sheet of the patient's own high-quality collagen being laid down in their skin. The procedure effectively breaks down and allows reorganization of scar tissue, similar to subscision or needle trepanation of scars, but is feasible for large areas. As there is no stripping of the stratum corneum (maintaining full photoprotection), nor any deep inflammatory response, this technique is suited to all skin types, all body areas, and without restriction to aesthetic units.
