Medical Microneedling for Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT)
Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that stimulates your blood circulation. It’s typically done to improve your skin’s appearance. The treatment creates micro-punctures on the surface of the skin. In cosmetic micro-needling, needles puncture the skin less than 1mm. These micro-channels let topical solutions penetrate deeper skin layers. In medical micro-needling for CIT, the needles puncture 1mm and deeper, usually not exceeding 2.5mm. As a medical treatment, micro-needling is also called collagen induction therapy—CIT. As a result, your skin produces new collagen and elastin in response to the controlled injury. So medical micro-needling for CIT reduces the appearance of scars, fine lines, and other skin texture changes.
How does micro-needling work?
Our CosmoPen creates those “micro-channels.” Medical-grade micro-needling stimulates your dermis to produce healthier skin. As a result, your skin plumps and thickens in response.
Medical micro-needling for CIT with platelet-rich plasma
Microneedling micro-channels allow PRP, liquid gold, to flow into deeper layers of skin. Platelet Rich Plasma contains your blood growth factors. At the same time, PRP and microneedling work together as the skin makes new collagen and elastin layers as it heals.
How many sessions do I need?
Medical microneedling for CIT shows full results after nine months of treatment. During this time, you’ll need three to six treatments spaced every two to six weeks. Dr. Nangrani will determine the exact number of treatments and the time between them.
