Collagen Induction Therapy

A Safe, Cost–Effective Treatment for Stretch Marks, Acne Scars, and Wrinkles

What do wrinkles, stretch marks, and acne scarring have in common? These are all conditions which have been frustrating physicians and patients in their inability to be effectively treated. Now, at last, a new, non–ablative and effective treatment is available.

Not a laser or a deep chemical peel, this exciting option is called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). CIT is a simple procedure that requires minimal down time (no more than four to seven days) and significant, measurable, and sustainable results.

How it Works

Precisely spaced micro needles create invisible micro perforations into the epidermis and the top layer of the dermis. As a result the skin shifts its natural repair mechanism into high gear and starts producing collagen and elastin to repair the skin. Your skin becomes firmer and regains it’s elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced, pores become finer, circulation is stimulated and the overall condition of the skin improves.

Collagen Induction Therapy can yield the following benefits:

  • Soften fine lines and wrinkles
  • Contribute towards skin thickening
  • Reduce the appearance of acne scars and other depressed scars on the body
  • Help improve stretch marks

Advantages of Collagen Induction Therapy are:

  • The process stimulates physiological responses
  • The treatment is not painful
  • A very short healing period
  • The treatment is cost effective
  • It can be used on thin skin
  • There is no permanent damage to the skin
  • It can safely be repeated for better results
  • It can be used on laser–resurfaced skin
  • It can be used on all areas of the face, neck, and body

Fast Recuperative Power

Recuperation time is minimal compared with other treatments. 1-4 days for your skin to return to normal.

Results

Results can take three to nine months to fully appear as the body takes time to generate new collagen. The patient, however, sees continual improvement. The procedure takes from ten minutes to over an hour, depending on the area to be treated. The patient must be anesthetized, usually with a topical numbing cream.

How long is the procedure?

Treatment sessions range from 30 minutes to 45 minutes, depending on the area being treated.

How many treatments are needed?

This will depend on the degree of the problem and the patient’s expectations (number of treatments usually range from three to six). Sessions are often spaced two to six weeks apart.
