Collagen Induction Therapy (Micro-needling)
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Collagen Induction Therapy An innovative skin rejuvenation treatment that significantly improves the appearance of sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and stretch marks with little downtime. Fast and minimally invasive, skin needling stimulates the natural production of new collagen and elastin in the skin. The repair process begins almost immediately.
Benefits of CIT:
The micro-needling procedure has many restorative and enhancement benefits. Aerating the skin allows for a more effective way to infuse products into the skin, allowing the product to penetrate further into the skin layers, and works as an enhancer for many other products.
Other Benefits of CIT:
Stimulates collagen growth
Enhances other products or treatments being used
Improves the thickness and durability of the skin
Can reduce wrinkles
Can reduce acne scarring and discoloration
Very little downtime
Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP, is plasma from the patient’s own blood that contains several growth factors, including platelet-driven growth factors, PDGF. PDGF is the growth factor that initiates all wound healing. Their main function is to simulate cell replication of healing capable stem cells, like collagen, to form new capillaries into the wound.
The addition of PRP to the process multiplies the effects of CIT by replicating and creating even more collagen for a greater effect on smoothing skin. It has also been shown that the high concentration of growth factors entrapped in the microchannels from CIT under the epidermis accelerates wound healing and skin remodeling.
