Collagen Induction Therapy works by stimulating your own body’s collagen to start your body naturally regenerating skin. It works below the surface (in the dermis) generating new skin cells and enhancing blood supply. Over several weeks visible signs of regeneration are seen & the process continues over the following months, providing a gradual & long lasting enhancement.
Also known as Skin Needling, Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is a natural treatment to improve your skin texture, smooth wrinkles and fine lines and soften scars. It is suitable for all skin types and all areas of the face, neck, décolletage and hands.
Who Is It For?
Anyone concerned with anti-ageing!
Collagen Induction Therapy will plump fine lines and wrinkles from almost anywhere on the body (don’t forget about your neck and décolletage). CIT also helps reduce appearance of acne scarring and other isolated scars.
Is It Painful?
Not really. The skin is thoroughly cleansed and you can choose to have a topical anesthetic is applied so you should not feel much at all. We use a needling device that we are able to adjust the needle depth to make sure we can customize the treatment to suit the patients skin and achieve the best results possible.
What Happens After?
The skin will have a redness that can last up to 24 hours. You will need to refrain from doing vigorous exercise or swimming for at least 24 hours after.
After the initial 24 hours you can resume most normal activities. In the following week you can expect some dryness and even mild peeling can be possible.
When Will I See Results?
Results are gradual as collagen re- production takes time. Most patients report seeing changes after the first 4 weeks.
Treatments are performed 6-8 weeks apart. We recommend a course of 3 treatments for optimum results.
