Collagen Induction Therapy
Also known as Microneedling or CIT, it is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that’s used to treat skin concerns via collagen production. This treatment may help those looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines/wrinkles, pigmentation issues, acne scars, and stretch marks. It’s also used in certain anti-aging procedures. CIT works by encouraging your skin to make more collagen. The idea is that pinpricks from the procedure cause slight injury to the skin and that the skin responds by making new collagen-rich tissue. This new skin tissue is, in turn, more even in tone and texture. It’s normal for the skin to lose collagen via age or injury. By encouraging the skin to make new tissue, there may be more collagen to help make the skin firmer, too.
