Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) or MicroNeedling
Collagen induction therapy triggers your body to create collagen. Why do I want my body to create collagen? Because collagen contains growth factors, it is essential to healing.
First of all, you may know that collagen is a basic substance in your body. It is the fibrous protein that surrounds all cells. It makes up a large part of connective tissue like ligaments and tendons, and furthermore, it is the primary material that makes up bones and teeth!
CIT refreshes the collagen in your face, under your skin, by MicroNeedling.
Collagen induction therapy and anti-aging
Anti-aging procedures take advantage of collagen’s healing properties. MicroNeedling creates tiny vertical micro-channels in your skin with a sterile needle pen, triggering your skin to produce collagen and elastin. As a result, you have younger-looking skin.
Technically, your skin is effectively made younger with newly produced collagen!
MicroNeedling and other procedures
CIT (MicroNeedling) intensifies the effects of microdermabrasion. It also improves the absorption of medications and liquids used during facials, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) facials, and PRP hair restoration. The micro-channels close soon after the treatment, lessening the chance of infection.
CIT improves the appearance of
- acne scars
- loss of firmness
- brown spots
- stretch marks
by triggering the skin’s natural ability to repair itself. Due to the tiny microchannels created in your skin, the skin will be red and feel irritated for a few hours after treatment. For best results, we recommend a series of treatments one or two weeks apart. Your skin will continue to improve for six to twelve months, as it produces new collagen.
Can I have CIT?
Collagen Induction Therapy, or MicroNeedling, is suitable for most skin types and conditions, including sensitive skin, darker skin, and Rosacea. Do you have fine and deep lines and wrinkles, loss of firmness, acne, scarring, and stretch marks? A series of MicroNeedling treatments may help you.
