CIT (Collagen Induction Therapy)
Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), also known as micro-needling or derma rolling, is a cosmetic procedure that involves using a device with tiny needles to create
small punctures on the skin. The purpose of the treatment is to stimulate the body's natural healing response, including the production of collagen and elastin fibers, which are essential for skin elasticity and firmness.
During the procedure, a device called a derma roller or micro-needling pen is passed over the skin, creating small channels or micro-injuries. These micro-injuries trigger the body's natural healing process, leading to the production of new collagen and elastin fibers. As a result, the skin becomes smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking.
CIT is commonly used to treat various skin conditions, including fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation. The treatment can be performed on the face, neck, chest, and hands, and it is suitable for most skin types and tones.
The procedure typically takes about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area. Most patients experience little to no discomfort during the procedure,
and there is minimal downtime afterwards. However, some patients may experience redness, swelling, and minor bruising for a few days following the treatment.
The benefits of collagen induction therapy include:
- Improved skin texture and tone.
- Reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Reduction in the appearance of acne scars and other types of scars.
- Reduction in the appearance of hyperpigmentation and age spots.
- Improvement in overall skin health and radiance.
Overall, collagen induction therapy is a safe and effective cosmetic procedure that can improve the appearance of the skin and address various skin concerns. However,
it is important to consult with a qualified and experienced skin care professional to determine if CIT is the right treatment for your specific needs and skin type.
