What is MCA?
M.C.A. (Multitrepannic Collagen Actuation) 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.
How does it work?
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.
Are there any
guarantees with MCA?
The answer to this question is NO. There are
no guaranteed results with MCA. However, many 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.
What is the down time?
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. There is
NO DOWN TIME!
Something about Multitrepannic Collagen
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 favorable
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.
