Collagen induction therapy (CIT), also called microneedling, tightens, lifts and rejuvenates the skin by stimulating the body’s own collagen and elastin production. It can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, minimize pores, improve stretch marks, crepey skin and scarring.
Topical anesthesia is applied before each treatment. Small needles penetrate the skin causing micro-channels that allow the induction of growth factors and antioxidants. Each treatment takes 30-45 minutes and is virtually painless. Treatments are repeated 4-6 weeks apart for a series of 4-6 treatments. Results are visible in 4-6 weeks with maximum collagen induction observed in 3-6 months.
