Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is a unique treatment designed to improve the skin’s texture, smooth out wrinkles, and soften skin scars. It’s considered suitable for every skin type, and can be effectively used on various areas of the face, neck, and hands. CIT is quite often referred to as “micro-needling.”
As a skin treatment, Collagen Induction Therapy in deep layers of skin is intended to stimulate new collagen. After CIT, the skin is smoother, tighter, and nicely toned. For some, the concept of “micro-needling” might sound overly aggressive, but it’s actually a moderate treatment. This is primarily because none of the surface skin is harmed in any way.
Collagen Induction Therapy has a rejuvenating effect on the skin, allowing for a revitalized and even younger look. The idea with “micro-needling” is to trigger the skin in a way that activates a healing process, which in itself serves to repair the skin. The treatment principle behind CIT is to stimulate the body’s collagen production in a way that mimics the natural process of renewal.
How The Treatment Works
Under expert supervision, an experienced aesthetician uses a stamping device with micro needles to create tiny punctures in the skin. While surface skin is actually punctured during treatment, there is no discernable damage. With CIT, the length of the micro needles is selected based on client need, and determines treatment outcomes.
Collagen Induction Therapy is intended to “kick-start” the skin’s propensity to repair itself. Once the treatment has been completed, skin products and skin nutrients can penetrate the skin much more effectively. This type of absorption contributes considerably to the overall healing process. And because only surface skin is punctured, everything heals quickly and without side effects.
Important for clients to understand is that healing is still required, and this takes some time. For the most part, it takes about 3-5 days to fully repair and skin tone will show noticeable improvement. For the very best results, skin care experts will normally recommend a number of CIT treatments, depending on the skin condition (along with a 4-12 week break between visits).
Today, many clients have quite high expectations when it comes to skincare treatments. There’s no treatment or procedure that provides overnight results, and Collagen Induction Therapy will require patience, as the treated skin heals over time. What’s most important is to work with skin care experts who are highly experienced with CIT, and who understand the nuances of skin care.
With Collagen Induction Therapy, the experts at IGBeauty Studio offer a professional approach to treatment, reminding clients about the dangers of smoking. In short, smoking will significantly compromise the healing process. Smoking inhibits blood circulation and reduces oxygen levels, and both will delay healing. This may well be the most opportune time to stop smoking entirely.
