Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), also known as micro-needling, uses an automated device with micro titanium steel needles that minimally penetrate the skin to make pin-point openings in the dermis. By opening these small channels in the skin, the body creates a repair system sending a rush of blood to the “trauma” site. Cell renewal is stimulated and fibroblast cells work to replace collagen verses scar tissue. These micro channels also allow better product penetration of active ingredients targeting specific areas of concern, such as Vitamin A, C and E, as well as Hyaluronic Acid.
CIT can be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, hyperpigmentation, light scars and old acne scars. It also helps stimulate hair growth and works as a preventative measure for future skin concerns. You can focus on specific areas, like around the eyes, the lips, the neck or decollete. Almost any area of the body can be worked on! Contraindications include, but aren’t limited to history of diabetes, active acne, rosacea, psoriasis, eczema or open wounds or lesions in area being treated.
Redness and erythema is to be expected after your treatment for 24-48 hours, depending on the person. it is advised to not wear makeup 24 hours following the treatment and mineral makeup there after. Skin will feel dry and tight with some sensitivity immediately after and a few days following the treatment. For the first 24 hours you will want to moisturize the area every couple hours with the serum recommended. You may experience flaking of the skin within the first 3-5 days. With the recommended pre and post care instructions, results can be seen within 3 weeks and continue up to 12 weeks after treatment. Service can be performed every 3 weeks and results can last 1-2 years
