Use Post Collagen Rejuvenation Therapy

Especially beneficial for facial use post procedure for all Collagen Rejuvenation Therapy™  treatments.

An everyday skin rejuvenation product.
DMAE Pro Serum 
The term DMAE is the acronym for dimethylaminoethanol which is a chemical produced by the brain. We have combined DMAE, MSM and antioxidants to improve the appearance of aging sagging skin.
Dr. Perricone’s best-selling book, ‘The Wrinkle Cure’, states that DMAE is a very popular treatment for wrinkle reduction. DMAE stimulates the release of acetylcholine, which triggers a response in the muscles of the face. This action will create less sagging of the skin and a much firmer facial tone.
What is DMAE?
“DMAE is an antioxidant membrane stabilizer. Because of its unique structure, DMAE actually intersperses and becomes part of the cell plasma membrane. DMAE also gives some protection from free-radicals and therefore can act as an antioxidant. Meaning – DMAE is an antioxidant membrane stabilizer. It prevents breakdown of the cell plasma membrane and the resulting production of arachidonic acid and a bunch of pro-inflammatory mediators. When mixed with other amino acids and nutrients, it has a dramatic firming effect on the skin”.
As aging progresses, the amount of acetylcholine slows down and the only way to produce more is to increase the amount of acetylcholine. Taking DMAE daily internally and externally by serums will result in greater looking skin.
Dr Perricone states that DMAE acts as an antioxidant because it helps stabilize cell membranes, protecting them from free-radical damage by helping cells to expel waste and hold on to valuable nutrients.
“When the unusual nutrient complex is applied topically, not only does it work quickly-within minutes of application; it also continues to firm the skin over time. And it couldn’t be safer. It’s considered a food-grade substance, so you could actually eat it without doing yourself any harm, although he does not recommend that you try”.

Will DMAE help the lines around my lips?

Clinical studies show that DMAE actually helps to increase circulation and tone to the lips, creating a fuller, firmer appearance.
Immediately post Collagen Rejuvenation Therapy©, apply DMAE to calm, soothe and restore the skins suppleness.
Using this product will help to not only soften lines around the lips, but the entire face.

Who Can Take a Collagen Rejuvenation Therapy™, Skin Micro Needling Class?

FAQ for Skin Needling, Collagen Rejuvenation Therapy  Scar Relaxation™ and  Melanocyte Restoration™ classes.

Q. Will I work under my cosmetology, aesthetics, nail technician or other state beauty license for Skin Needling™ / Micro Needling, Collagen Rejuvenation Therapy™, Melanocyte Restoration™ and Scar Relaxation™?

In most states NO!

In most states you will NOT be performing  these  procedures under any  state beauty /aesthetic/ nail license you currently hold.

Again, in most states, your current beauty license has absolutely NOTHING to do with these procedures.

Think of this –

You have an aesthetics license and you have a  drivers license.

One has nothing to do with the other. These licenses are both issued by the state you live in.

As of now, most states do not even recognize these procedures. We are making them aware of this through our school protocol polices and procedures.


Q. Who should take these classes?

A. The perfect people to take these classes are  someone that already has a working knowledge of the skin’s anatomy, histology and physiology.

An aestitician, any one in the beauty industry, massage therapists,  acupuncturists, all level of nurses, dental, medical, physicians and other related industry professionals are a natural choice.


Q. What makes  IIPC / SCPME  CRT™  classes  different from all of the other CRT™  classes?

A. First of all, the CRT™ training most professionals receive do not address the individual wrinkles.

1. Students  at schools are instructed with 9-15 round needle groupings and as we all know, wrinkles are not circular they are linear.

2. Many companies address the face as a whole skipping over the most important application of plumping up the linear indentations prior to plumping up the entire facial collagen region making the wrinkles still noticeable and in many cases worse than before the initial application of CRT™.

3. Our protocol for CRT™ follows the fact that we educate our students on  the Primary Application and the rollers, pens and other devices are only considered  the Secondary Application.

4. In most states, technicians are licensed by the  Environmental Board of Health. Technicians may only work in a facility that is licensed by the Health Department or other State Regulatory Board. Always check your local city, county and state permanent makeup laws prior to class registration.

5. No one should ever lie to the Board of Health about their education for any reason.

6.The California Environmental Health Board does not require any certain numbers of hours for any permanent makeup license.

7. In states not governing Permanent Cosmetic Makeup, Permanent Makeup Educational hours are usually  up to the  individual schools as long as certain guidelines are met in accordance with the insurance companies and Professional Permanent Makeup Organizations such as the League of Permanent Cosmetic Providers ( LPCP).  IIPC works in concert with insurance companies to insure your core knowledge for you to be covered under that specific insurance carrier.

8. IIPC / SCPME has always has the highest standards in the permanent makeup industry. Other people set the standards while IIPC raises them to a higher level!


A. How is your protocol different from other schools?

Q.  When the treatment is completed, the technician will apply an ‘Illuminator’ which is a insoluble opaque pigment that is applied to the treated area post procedure. This constitutes a ‘Permanent Makeup Procedure’.


Q. Why should these procedures be licensed under Permanent Makeup?

A. The best information is in the following article



Q. Who regulates Permanent Cosmetic Makeup?

A. In most states, the Environmental Board of Health Regulates Permanent Cosmetics. We have written and produced protocols since2013 to promote these procedures under the technician’s permanent makeup license which is issued by the board of health.

Colorado requires that you must be a licensed aestitician to perform permanent cosmetic procedures.

Please check with your state, county, local and city regulations for any new law changes prior to taking our classes.

Q. Why are there so many different names for the same procedure?

Collagen Rejuvenation Therapy (CRT) also known as Micro Needling, Collagen Induction, Meta Therapy, Dermal Needling, Dry Needling, Skin Needling and many other names is the same procedure just using different names that are tied to a certain product or machine company.

Q. How long are your classes?

A. We certify the students in Collagen Rejuvenation Therapy, Scar Relaxation and Melanocyte Relaxation for 18+ hours as our students already are in the beauty or medical industry and should have a thorough knowledge and understanding of the histology, anatomy and physiology of the skin.

Q. Is there anything I must do prior to taking a class with your school?

A. Yes. You must take an industry specific Blood Borne Pathogen Class that is approved by your local city, county  and state laws.

All Health Department laws (or other governing board) must be followed to perform the procedures, such as taking a yearly  industry specific Blood Borne Pathogen Course, using ‘California Complainant’ Client Forms for each client, single sterile one time use of needles and machine parts, and all other pertinent supplies and equipment along with the wearing of all proper PPE’s which are required by law.

All needles are disposed of in a sharps container.

All Health Department, OSHA and CDC laws must be followed explicitly. We have been told that our client consent forms are above industry standards and are the most complete forms used by any school/individual.

What Credentials Will I Have?

Your will be certified as a ‘Certified Collagen Rejuvenation Therapist™   (CCRT™)’ Permanent Makeup Application.

Who Regulates CRT, Scar Relaxation & Melanocyte Restoration Procedures?

In most states, these procedures are regulated by the ‘Environmental   Board of Health’ under permanent makeup/tattooing.

Permanent Makeup Safety Advice

The following information is beneficial to share with your clients.

Passing it along to your patrons will not only show you are a knowledgeable and credible technician, but it will establish that you care for the well-being of your patients; thus setting the foundation for a comfortable, trusting relationship between you and your clientele.

To Permanent Cosmetics clients:

  • Schedule a consultation with the technician prior to the actual appointment day. This consultation would most likely be the ideal time to go over all of these safety precautions with your technician.
  • Ask if the technician uses ‘disposable only’ machine parts. If they do not, make sure she/he has a functioning autoclave and uses a biological indicator test every month. (Autoclaving pressurizes steam heat to kill germ spores. At 121°C, the pressurized steam will kill all spores within 15 minutes; increased pressure and a temperature of 132°C can accomplish sterilization in 4 minutes.) Ask to see spore strip tests from an authorized lab to make sure the autoclave’s results are effective.
  • Most technicians use totally disposable machine parts. Make sure these ‘Single Use’ and ‘Sterile’ parts are safely disposed of immediately after your procedure.
  • Manual hand tools must be autoclaved prior to use for optimum sanitation. Used manual needles and/or the complete tool should be disposed of in a biohazard container. There are various hand tools that can be re-autoclaved using a new needle grouping. Technicians should check with their supply company regarding these tools.
  • Ask the technician if they follow all of OSHA and CDC guidelines. Ask to see their Sharps container and inquire what the proper protocol is concerning the disposal of used needles. All ‘Sharps’ or ‘Biohazard’ containers must be puncture-resistant, leak proof and color-coded or labeled “BIOHAZARD.
  • Make sure your technician washes their hands vigorously with soap and water and uses a clean pair of disposable gloves before setting up your sterile needle set.
  • IIPC is a latex-free clinic. If you have any allergies to latex or any other products, be sure to tell your technician at your consultation.
  • Insist on observing your technician as she or he removes a new needle and machine setup from a sealed pouch immediately before starting your procedure. You should also watch the technician set up a clean cap of pigment, poured directly from the bottle for each of your procedures. Be sure to ask the technician about their use of sterile procedures and isolation techniques. It is the responsibility of the client to observe the technician at work, inquiring about their experience and qualifications.
  • Be wary of the technician’s office during your consultation visit. If their areas are disorderly and cluttered, you may consider using another technician.
  • Question the technician on their use of barrier film. This is a clear or blue heavy-duty sheet of plastic that is sticky on one side and will adhere to light fixtures, the tattoo machine, telephone, door handles, or any other article the technician may come in contact with. If the technician does not practice using this product, there could be a transfer of contaminated blood-borne pathogens. All cords and machines should be covered as well.
  • The technician should never touch their hair, glasses, or other items with a gloved hand. If you observe this happening, you should ask the technician to replace their gloves to prevent any chance of contamination.
  • Used needles and pigment should NEVER be kept for a client’s future appointment. Pigment contains bodily fluids and bacteria, and it should be disposed of immediately after the procedure is completed.
  • Clients must sign all of the proper consent forms, as well as forms to confirm that any needles have been properly disposed of in a bio-hazard container immediately following each procedure.
  • Technicians working in open area beauty salons run the risk of airborne pathogens from acrylic nails, hair products and so on… Remember: permanent cosmetic makeup creates an open wound. Contaminants from the air should be kept to a minimum to ensure a healthy, clean procedure.
  • All surfaces should be wiped down with a hospital grade disinfectant (ex.Discide) prior to, and immediately following, any procedure application.
  • Ask the technician to see their current Health Department and Business License.
  • Ask to see a current certificate from a certified Blood Borne Pathogen and Exposure Control Class or from OHSA.
  • Ask your technician to see their current portfolio with photos of other clients who underwent the same procedure that you are requesting.
  • If you are having your permanent eyebrows applied, ask for an ‘Eyebrow Design’ appointment. This appointment should be separate from your consultation. The technician will go over various shapes and colors and what the best eyebrow design for your face will be. At this time, the technician may also wax your brows. If you are not in total agreement with how the permanent makeup procedure looks while drawn on, keep working with the technician until you are satisfied with the design.
  • On your procedure day, if you are not happy with the drawn on shape of your eyes, lips or brows, do not have the procedure completed. Your technician is there to work with you and give you a great looking procedure. If you do not like how something looks, tell them prior to starting, do not wait until they have started your application and change your mind.
  • If the technician is a qualified professional, they will have no problems complying with standards above and beyond these simple guidelines. If the technician, or their place of business, does not appear up to these standards, or if they become evasive when questioned, seek out a qualified professional technician.
  • Permanent Makeup is just that…….. PERMANENT!
  • Remember the old adage: “You get what you pay for.” If your procedure is less than desirable, you cannot cover your face. Choose your technician wisely, based on their training, professionalism and your judgment of their character.
