MTA (Multi-Trepannic Actuation) or CIT (Collagen Induction Therapy) is a non-surgical and entirely natural way of getting the body's own cells to regenerate and minimize wrinkles. This process can be used to relax constricted scars, plump the "valley" of wrinkles (causing them to fill in), and "white scars" can often be re-pigmented to better match the surrounding skin tones. Performed correctly, MCA can even plump lip tissue and alleviate small unsightly wrinkles around the lip area. MCA is practically painless, completely risk- free and is a great alternative to injectable fillers such as Collagen injections and muscle relaxants such as Botox. The results of MCA are much longer-lasting and more affordable. Usually, only gifted and experienced individuals practicing MCA can achieve the best results.
MCA works by creating a minor trauma to the skin. The epidermis is stimulated to undertake its own natural rejuvenation, re-pigmentation, scar relaxation or whatever results the practitioner is striving for. As the needle enters the skin, the dermis starts the inflammation and swelling phase. Fibroblasts move into the area and start producing collagen and elastin to help with wound healing. If there is any visible condition that needs healing (swelling, bruising, etc), this will take about 3-7 days. In the process, the existing collagen levels are raised and good results are achieved. It is stated that the deeper the penetration in to the dermis, the better collagen and elastin deposition. Tissue remodeling is also a phase of MCA healing.
The answer to this question is NO. There are no guaranteed results with MCA. However, many clients have experienced moderate to amazing results. The outcome depends on the client's individual reaction to the healing process imposed by the MCA process and skill of the practitioner. On some clients, wrinkle improvements are seen in a very short space of time while in others, even with multi treatments, there is only a slight improvement. Usually good results are achieved, but the client must have realistic expectations of the results, and understand the exact predication of the outcome is an impossibility.
Minor bruising and swelling may (or may not) be present during the first 24 to 72 hours. Bruising may be concealed with make-up during healing. You will notice red lines similar to 'cat scratches' over the area treated but these will scab and heal quickly.
The first written works were from a Doctor Camairand who discovered that scars of some clients that he had tattooed with pigment were in fact re-pigmenting naturally. He named the process Trepanation. A Doctor Des Dernandes read this article and experienced that abraded scars would plump up. Doctor Kristan Matzek, who is a leading micropigmentation specialist and who is also the Vice-President of the American Academy of Micropigmentation discovered that using dry-needle technique" to scars and wrinkles would give favourable results to minimize these and other problems. It is possible (in some cases) for an experienced practitioner to erase up to 10 years from the aging face of men and women- without surgery or even Botox.
