COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), also known as medical skin needling or micro-needling, is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment designed to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as scars on the face and body. The treatment uses tiny needles or micro-needles on a medical grade dermal pen that is moved over the skin to create tiny, evenly-spaced puncture wounds on the skin. Small needle clusters on a hand held device penetrate into the skin and break up old collagen strands and stimulate the production of elastin fibres oriented from the deep layers of the dermis to the surface.
The result is smoother, thicker, tighter, more even toned skin. This process stimulates the body’s natural collagen production by generating a “wound healing” response. The pen used is much like a fine tattooing needle, so should cause minimal trauma when creating the microscopic punctures in the skin. However, topical local anaesthetic is used to minimise discomfort. By wounding the skin you encourage the body to produce new collagen and elastin, which helps it thicken and ‘plump up’ - best results seen after a series of treatments. CIT does not damage the skin -it leaves the epidermis (which is the protective layer of our skin) intact.
