Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT)

Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) treatments can be used anywhere on the body to help improve the appearance of skin.

Would you like to improve the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles? Shrink open pores or improve the pitted appearance of acne scars? Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) can do this whilst also giving the skin a rejuvenated, fresh appearance.

CIT is suitable for use on the face and body, for both male and female clients – including those who wish to treat stretch marks, surgical scars or loose skin. CIT is less invasive than many alternative solutions.

Collagen Induction Therapy is a skin repair treatment that can help to significantly improve the appearance of ageing or scarred skin. It uses tiny needles attached to a pen device to gently puncture the skin causing a series of traumatic punctures on the skin. The result of this is that the skin responds to this by naturally producing collagen and elastin to repair itself. The production of collagen and elastin work to smooth and firm the skin, plumping out deep lines and improving the indented or red appearance of scars and stretch marks.

Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT):

At Skin n Tonic Aesthetics with our Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) treatment we use a Dermapen device that works across the skin, puncturing it with thousands of tiny micro-needles. This process creates a multitude of tiny puncture wounds which triggers your skin’s natural healing process. This healing process stimulates the production of new tissue, collagen and elastin thereby improving skin’s elasticity and overall condition, leaving the skin glowing and rejuvenated. Deep lines can be plumped out  and red appearance of scars and stretch marks can be greatly improved.

Why choose Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT)?

Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) treatment is a non-ablative regenerative skin treatment. This means it creates controlled damage of the skins deeper layer, without removal of the healthy epidermis (the skin’s upper layer) . The treatment is suitable for all skin types, with little pain, a short healing time, and minimal discomfort or sensitivity post treatment. Adverse reactions are very rare with minimum or no side effects.

What should I expect during treatment?

Prior to treatment, you will have an initial consultation with your practitioner to discuss your concerns and what you are hoping to achieve. During this consultation will will be able to discuss your treatment options and we will be able to decide if Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is the best treatment for you.

To begin the actual treatment a topical anaesthetic cream is applied to the treatment area to numb your skin. Once the anaesthetic has taken effect, the treatment will commence. Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is a hand held device that will be rolled across the treatment area. Thousands of tiny micro-needles puncture the skin causing a mild amount of discomfort and triggering a healing process that will ultimately tighten and improve the skin’s appearance.
