What is CIT? Collagen Induction Therapy
Collagen Induction Therapy is an anti-wrinkle, anti-aging or anti-blemish treatment to address specific skin concerns of the face & body.
CIT, Collagen Induction Therapy is a natural skin rejuvenation therapy that results in increased production of type III (healthy) collagen which results in regenerative healing. Type III collagen forms from the base of the dermis upward. This formation results in healing without production of type I collagen or scar collagen. Modeling of new skin tissue is created below the surface, smoothing and tightening the targeted area.
The object of CIT is to build up the connective tissue in the lower skin layers while keeping intact the protective outer layer of the skin. Small needle clusters of a hand held device is used to create penetrate into the skin & break up old collagen strands & stimulate the production of elastin fibers from the deep layers of the dermis to the surface. The result is smoother, thicker, more even toned skin.
During the collagen induction process, the device penetrates through the epidermis but does not remove it. Since the epidermis is only punctured, it heals rapidly. CIT can penetrate the skin anywhere. It can be used for a wide range of therapy. Once the entry ways are created, targeted customized serums are introduced to achieve the specific desired results. Patients are encouraged to continue use of the serums twice daily for two weeks to enhance the results.
Collagen Induction Therapy does not damage the skin. CIT promotes collagen without compromising the integrity of the surface. It leaves the epidermis, which is the outer protective layer of the skin, intact while it promotes collagen & elastin to increase up to 1000%. The process stimulates your own body’s collagen production in the dermal layer which is where collagen resides & is formed.
