Collagen induction therapy (Microneedling)

Collagen induction therapy (CIT), also known as microneedling, dermarolling, or skin needling, is a cosmetic procedure that involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles (microneedling the skin). CIT should be separated from other contexts in which microneedling devices are used on the skin. Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that's used to treat skin concerns by stimulating collagen production. Also known as collagen induction therapy, this treatment creates micro-punctures in the skin using miniature, sterilized needles.

Once we reach 25 years old, our cellular levels and skin automatically changes. Our skin produces less fibroblasts cells (responsible for making growth factors and new cells in the skin). Skin loses 1% of the number of fibroblasts and 1% of its thickness per year.

Procedure Time: 60 - 90 minutes

How does it works?
The microneedles penetrates your skin with thousands of microscopic needle columns, which encourages the skin's natural repair process. As your skin regenerates, new collagen and skin cells are formed and blood supply is enhanced.

What results can I aspect?
Immediately after your Collagen Induction Therapy procedure you will look as though you have mild to moderate sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This will subside after 3 - 4 hours with only slight redness the next day. Your practitioner will apply recovery Cream immediately after the procedure and you should continue to use this cream until the redness has cleared. It is recommended that makeup should not be applied for 12 hours after the procedure and tepid water should be used to cleanse the face for the 48 hours following the procedure.

How many treatments will I need?
Although most clients report looking fresher and rested after a few days following treatment, it can take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair are seen. The process will continue over the following months, providing you with a natural and long lasting enhancement. Your practitioner will normally recommend a series of 3 - 4 treatments with approximately 4 weeks between them.
