COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY
COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY (CIT) / MICRONEEDLING
CIT, also known as Microneedling gently stimulates the growth of collagen. This treatment uses a microneedling “pen” that creates micro wounds into the skin that stimulate collagen and elastin production. This treatment has a dramatic effect in the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring and hyperpigmentation. This quick and effective treatment delivers laser-like results without the downtime. Microneedling also helps to lighten age spots and enhance the skin’s tone, texture and luminosity and can be performed on the face, neck and décolleté.
Microneedling is extremely customized as you can choose add-ons to address your skin care concerns or goals. When you meet with a member of our team we will discuss microneedling add-on options with you.
MICRONEEDLING ADD-ON OPTIONS:
C10 (VITAMIN C 10%)

PROTEIN RICH RETINOL 4% (PRR 4%)

It also refines pore size, treats skin laxity, and improves the skin texture and tone. It’s an excellent treatment for thick, oily skin. Because this Retinol is micro-encapsulated, it penetrates deeper into the skin with less irritation.
