Collagen Induction Therapy is also known as CIT or Micro-Needling.
Why should you consider Micro-Needling???
....because these super-tiny micro channels that are invisible to the naked eye do two important things:
1. Stimulate the body to produce new collagen and elastin, (the skin's connective tissue and the structural matrix responsible for smooth texture and elasticity).
2. Allow for active ingredients to penetrate to the dermis (lower layers) where they can immediately get to work for our benefit.
First, just to clear any confusion when you hear the word "needling", here's what the technique is NOT:
a. Micro-Needling is NOT an injection.
b. Micro-Needling is NOT a piercing.
c. Micro-Needling is NOT a DIY procedure.
Micro-Needling can also be used as an easy complexion pick-me-up. Combined with antioxidants and hyaluronic acid, Micro-Needling can deliver instant plumping, making it a great treatment to do a few days before a big event. Please note that it's not uncommon that after the first few treatments at least, your skin will be slightly red and may feel sunburnt, which is normal so please let us know your social/work schedule prior to your treatment so we can guide you with your post home care instructions for BEST RESULTS!
The last point is an important one. Whether administered by a physician or licensed Esthetician, clinical Micro-Needling belongs ONLY in the hands of a skilled professional who is trained in the technique. Call today to learn more 214-284-5562.
