Collagen induction therapy (CIT) is a skin rejuvenation technique. CIT is an improved form of traditional roller micro-needling. CIT “no roller” technology is applied via digital hand held device with skin use needles which penetrate the skin up to 0.3mm at variable speeds.
Once the skin is penetrated with the needles, the body responds with a wound healing reaction, which produces natural collagen. With microscopic punctures in the epidermis, CIT skin needling is non invasive with no damage to the epidermis.
Skin Needling promotes the natural reproduction of collagen and elastin, making the skin feel smoother and tighter, giving it an overall healthy glow.
The new collagen that CIT creates improves areas such as wrinkles and scar tissue. New blood vessel growth improves blood flow to the skin, which will simulate cellular metabolism, producing improved skin oxygenation.
The most popular areas for CIT treatment are the face, neck, and hands, but CIT can be applied anywhere on the body you may want to improve the skin texture.
CIT procedures have minimal down time for healing with redness and swelling generally subsiding within 24 hours, and most people can return to work the following day without any irritation or embarrassment.
