What is Collagen Induction Therapy?
Collagen induction therapy microneedling, also known as CIT, is a treatment method that uses small needles to create small openings in the uppermost layer of your skin. This artificial damage stimulates your body’s production of collagen and elastin, two important proteins in your body that play particularly large roles in the health of your skin. As your body produces these important proteins, you are left with younger looking and more voluminous skin.
How Much Does CIT Cost?
CIT costs must be individualized to your specific needs. To discuss pricing, schedule a one-on-one consultation with one of our staff here at About Face Skin Care. We’ll address any questions or concerns you may have.
Am I a Candidate for CIT?
Many physicians also recommend CIT for stretch marks. Although CIT can provide great results, it is not a great option for everyone. It is not recommended for individuals who have previous history of keloid scarring or allergies to any of the ingredients used in CIT, including some metals or numbing agents, particularly medications in the “caine” family. It can be used for adult men and women of all skin tones and types.
How Is CIT Performed?
CIT uses multiple small needles to create numerous channels in the top layer of your skin. As collagen and elastin are produced, your skin becomes thicker, more voluminous, and elastic, which can effectively help reverse the natural aging process. The process takes around an hour with a numbing agent first applied, after which the procedure is completed.
What Is Recovery Like After CIT?
CIT results in skin that resembles a sunburn. This lasts for a few days, and once your skin has recovered, it will continually improve for around a year. You can return home after receiving treatment and return to your normal daily routine.
How Long Will My CIT Results Last?
Your CIT results will typically last for a year, but in many cases, a series of two or three treatment is recommended for a duration of six weeks. You can receive treatment once every two to three weeks, meaning you may receive two to three treatment sessions in total. This is recommended to provide longer-lasting results.
