Great skin starts with continuous facial rejuvenation services to keep the skin looking its best. Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), also known as micro-needling, is a procedure that improves the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars, loss of firmness, brown spots and stretch marks by stimulating the skin’s natural ability to repair itself. A device with tiny, sharp needles is used to create hundreds of micro-channels in the skin. This process triggers the skin to release growth factors and cytokines, producing more collagen and elastin, resulting in younger looking skin.
During a treatment, the skin is first numbed using a topical OTC anesthetic cream that keeps the client comfortable during the procedure. The micro-needle glides effortlessly over the skin with the use of a topical serum to create a glide on the skin’s surface. The micro-channels created are a pathway for the delivery of optimal ingredients into the skin while keeping the barrier intact. This is what makes CIT preferable to many of the ablative treatments available which destroy the top layer of the skin. The channels close up very quickly so there is minimal risk of infection or hyperpigmentation (brown spots).
CIT is a well tolerated and cost effective treatment that is suitable for most skin types and conditions, including sensitive skin, darker skin, Rosacea, fine and deep lines and wrinkles, loss of firmness, acne, scarring and stretch marks. It may be performed on the face or body with excellent results.
