WHAT IS COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY?
Collagen Induction Therapy – Revolutionary Non-Surgical Skin Rejuvenation Treatment Used in Europe for years
Skin micro-needling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is a non-ablative, all-natural cosmetic procedure
that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. The needles are used to puncture the skin to create a controlled skin injury. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin. Through the process of neovascularization and neocollagenesis, there is improvement in skin texture and firmness, as well as reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks
