Help Your Skin Heal Itself Naturally with the Help of Micro Needling
Collagen Induction Therapy, or CIT, is the technical name for the process of automated micro-needling. This innovative anti aging treatment involves the use of a state-of-the-art treatment system improving the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, scarring from acne, and overall texture, tone and color of skin. CIT is the use of tiny needles, which make tiny, micro-injuries to the surface of the skin. These tiny injuries help the skin produce more of its own natural collagen and elastin. This natural repair process produces a thicker top layer of skin that appears softer, less lined and wrinkled. The MicroPen™, the tool used in this treatment, works with topical treatments for scars and wrinkles and allows it to absorb more deeply and thoroughly into the skin by creating micro-channels.*

- Results are natural*
- Ultra effective*
- Safe for every skin type*
Micro-needling helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, overall tone, and texture of skin to make it appear softer and younger, with fewer signs of aging. This technology can also be used to help reduce the appearance of hyper-pigmentation (dark spots), acne scarring, other types of scars, stretch marks, and uneven skin tone.*

What Areas of My Body Can be Treated with Micro Needling?
Micro-needling can be used anywhere on your body, including the face, arms, legs, chest, stomach, and back.*
How is Micro Needling Done?
When you go in to your micro-needling appointment, the practitioner will prepare a sterile needle tip, which contains 12 micro-needles. A topical gel will be applied in a thin layer over the area to treat and micro-needling tool will be customized to treat the skin based on your unique needs. The practitioner will then pass the micro-needling pen over the area in one smooth, single motion, in one direction, until the area has been covered.*
What Time Will I Need to Set Aside for Micro-Needling?
Micro-needling can be done very quickly and depends on the size of the area being treated, as well as other factors. Typically, the procedure takes as little as 15 to 20 minutes.*
What Does Micro-Needling Feel Like?
Most patients associate the feeling of micro-needling treatment to the feeling of sandpaper being rubbed across the skin. Some areas, however, are more sensitive than others and treatment tends to be more comfortable the quicker the tool is moved across the surface of the skin.*
When Will I Be Able to See a Difference?
Immediately after the treatment, you may notice a glow to your skin. Over the course of several weeks changes will continue to develop in the skin as collagen continues to be produced. Your skin can continue to improve up to 6 months after initial treatment.*
How Many Times Should I Receive the Micro-Needling Treatment?
The number of treatments recommended varies from patient to patient, but you may need treatments as infrequently as only once per year. It is generally recommended to receive 2 to 3 treatments spaced approximately 6 to 8 weeks apart. If you have deep wrinkles or other advanced skin blemishes that you wish to remove, 6 to 8 sessions of micro-needling at 6-week intervals is best.*
