COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY
60 min - $200 per session
(A series of 3-6 recommended for optimal results)
Clinically proven to induce collagen and reduce scarring. CIT increases skin stimulation by using very fine vertical needles for penetration to create micro channels into the skin to instantly obtain hydration and infuse collagen stimulating ingredients which promote tissue stimulation and skin rejuvenation. This is unlike any heat based technology as there is no skin burning and skin coagulation. The side effects are dramatically reduced and the risk, almost zero.
HOW IS THE PROCEDURE PERFORMED AND DOES IT HURT?
The skin is cleaned and sterilized. Generally the skin will need to be numbed to ensure your comfort. Therefore the treatment is considered minimal discomfort to painless. The tip will glide over your skin creating stimulating channels and an even flushing is the best indication for a perfect treatment. The treatment usually takes around 1 hour in total (may be a little longer depending on condition and/or area being treated).
CAN IT BE PERFORMED ON ANY SKIN COLOR?
Since we are not using heat, yes the it can be used on any skin color and skin type.
HOW LONG BEFORE I SEE RESULTS?
You will see results instantly. However collagen will grow from around the 6 week mark. Your skin will continue to improve over 6-12mths.
HOW OFTEN CAN I HAVE A TREATMENT:
For Collagen + Skin Rejuvenation - 3-6 treatments / 3 wks apart
For Scars + Acne Scar Reduction - 6+ treatment / 3 wks apart
SHOULD YOU EXPECT DOWNTIME FROM THIS TREATMENT?
The inflammatory reaction of the skin is extremely short and fades significantly within hours from redness to pinkish that may last from 12 to 24 hours on average. In order to reduce visible redness, we recommend topical healing minerals + hyaluronic acid to help hydrate the skin. Zinc sun protection is also recommended.
WHAT SHOULD YOU AVOID AFTERWARDS? NOTHING STIMULATING!
You must avoid AHA’s, retinol (vitamin A) or anything acidic or ‘active’ for a minimum of 2 days.
WHAT SHOULD YOU USE ON YOUR SKIN AFTERWARDS?
Only use a soothing cleanser to clean, hyaluronic acid to help hydrate as your skin will become very dry. Soothing moisturizers & Zinc to help heal and protect.
