For more than a decade Dr Kylie has been treating the skin. Injectable treatments of the skin using muscle-relaxant anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers can certainly achieve amazing results and also work in a preventative manner to reduce the signs of aging.
However, the loss of skin elasticity and break down of the skin’s natural collagen continues to occur with time. Traditonally, techniques such as full facial laser resurfacing have been employed to promote skin tightening and collagen remodelling. Unfortuantely these invasive techniques involve considerable discomfort and a prolonged healing time. The more invasive procedures also carry higher risks.
“I want to improve skin quality, texture and elasticity with techniques that are comfortable, have low risk and limited downtime for my clients” says Dr Kylie Regli. “Nowadays, with our busy lives, we just can’t afford to undergo procedures that require time off work. We need a process that is ticking away in the background to maintain our skin health. We need to stimulate our skin to maintain itself.”
Dr Regli has researched many methods of “Collagen Induction Therapy”. ie stimulating the skin to produce and remodel its own natural collagen and elastin. Under what normal circumstances do we see the skin perform this function of collagen production and remodelling? The answer is “WOUND HEALING”. During the wound healing process the skin undergoes a cascade of cellular proliferation and remodelling, with the laying down and restructuring of collagen. Invasive technique such as laser resurfacing relied on producing a controlled wound to the skin in order to stimulate the skin to heal and remodel.
What if we could to stimulate the skin to undergo the healing process without the creation of a wound? That would mean collagen induction without downtime, discomfort or risk! Dr Regli has found three different methods of Collagen Induction Therapy that work in this way.
