CIT (Collagen Induction Therapy), also known as ‘Microneedling’ is a minimally invasive skin treatment that creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin using micro-fine needles – a treatment that’s virtually painless and incredibly effective.
It also allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro-injuries which trigger new collagen synthesis yet doesn’t pose the risk of permanent scarring.
Collagen is the protein that helps give our skin strength and elasticity, along with replacing dead skin cells. This procedure induces the production of collagen in the skin, making it beneficial for a number of skin concerns including fine lines and wrinkles.
As we age, collagen production naturally begins to slow down which can lead to signs of aging, resulting in more wrinkles, fine lines & skin sagging. So, CIT can boost collagen production and more collagen means a more youthful complexion.
It’s the most powerful treatment to stop aging in its tracks and prevent new wrinkles from forming. With its ability to trigger the generation of new skin cells, just a few sessions will reduce fine lines.
CIT has been scientifically proven to be a natural way to improve acne scars, particularly atrophic facial scarring after 2 months. These are sunken in the skin and form when the skin is unable to regenerate tissue; scars from acne or chicken pox.
The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin. Post-treatment, it is proven that individuals have an increased radiance in their skin!
By stimulating collagen growth with microneedling – it can also, reverse sun damage and discolouration, including hyperpigmentation that comes with melasma.
It has also, been scientifically proven that microneedling does improve hair growth. Where, a (2013) study indicated that after 12 weeks, 82% of the microneedling group reported a 50% improvement in hair growth.
Visible signs of skin rejuvenation are usually seen after just 6 weeks following the treatment & continue to improve for up to a year or more.
We recommend a minimum course of 3 skin needling treatments – at 2 week intervals to achieve optimum results.
This treatment suits several types of skin, and it’s carried out by people who want to improve their skin laxity, eliminate wrinkles, smoothen lines and slow down the aging process.
