Collagen Induction Therapy is a derma-roller procedure that uses small needles to prick the skin. The purpose of treatment is to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin. CIT is mostly used on the face and may treat various scars, wrinkles, and large pores.
CIT is minimally invasive, requiring no downtime. It’s considered safe for most people who are in overall good health. The procedure isn’t safe for people who use certain acne medications or for women who are pregnant. You’ll experience minor redness and irritation for a few days after the procedure.
Total prep and procedure time is about two hours. Our aesthetician is able to perform the procedure with the supervision of our physician. You may need at least four procedures or more for the best results.
It’s considered effective in treating minor scarring related to acne, wounds, and ageing. You’ll likely notice brighter, firmer skin, too. Ideal results are achieved after multiple sessions. CIT is far more effective than at-home rollers.
