Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is an exciting new natural treatment to improve your skin texture, smooth wrinkles, fine lines and soften scars. It is suitable for all skin types and all areas of the face, neck, décolletage and hands.
How it Works
It is a minimally-invasive non-surgical and non-ablative procedure for facial rejuvenation and other concerns that involves the use of a micro-needling device to create controlled skin injury.
As each fine needle punctures the skin, it creates a micro-wound. The controlled injury triggers the body to fill these micro-wounds by producing new collagen and elastin in the papillary dermis.
In addition, new capillaries are formed. This neovascularization treatment leads to a reduction of scars and skin rejuvenation, with improved skin texture, firmness and hydration.
Professional skin needling is considered to be one of the safest skin treatment procedures.
