I am super excited to share something NEW with you! It`s been one of the hardest treatments to bring into my practice. I have been working on laboring this treatment for months so it is very special to me and I can`t wait for you guys to try it and see the amazing results.
I am introducing Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) also known as Microneedeling.
Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is one of the hottest topics in skin care today-and for a good reason. It`s a clinically proven treatment that, produces collagen and elastin in aging skin. This is also known as Microneedeling, a process in which microneedles puncture the skin to stimulate and manipulate the body`s natural healing properties. This technology is a revolutionary improvement to traditional collagen-synthesizing therapies like dermabrasion, chemical peeling or laser resurfacing.
CIT/Microneedeling is a safe and effective method for all skin types to improve fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, reducing the pore size, skin tightening, as well as veriety of other skin ailments.
To better understand how microneedling works, let’s first take a closer look into the arena in which it performs. The skin is the body’s largest and most essential organ; it is in a constant state of fluctuation. Dead cells of the outer layers are continuously shed and replaced by inner cells that move up toward the surface. Skin is composed of two primary layers: the epidermis and the dermis. The epidermis is the outermost protective layer; it is meant to protect the body from outside elements and to act as a water-resistant barrier that prevents essential nutrients from leaving the body. The dermis—commonly known as the “true skin”—is the most important layer since it is home to the essential functioning components of the skin. This layer is made up of fibroblasts, which are primarily responsible for producing collagen and elastin.
Collagen makes up 70% of the dermis and it plays a vital role in the cohesion, elasticity and regeneration of skin. At the average age of 35, almost half of the collagen that we were born with is lost. As a result, degenerative skin changes can become visible. As the skin ages, it begins to lose its firmness and elasticity, but it can be rejuvenated.
During the process of microneedling, small micro-channels are created in the skin to activate the body’s natural healing response. While vertical needle insertion and a fast perforation process renders less discomfort (in contrast to other collagen-synthesizing therapies), there is enough stimulation for the ‘injured’ skin to shift into “regeneration mode.”
During the regeneration cycle, the body intensifies the release of growth factors within the deeper layers of the skin. As a result, collagen and elastin production is accelerated to heal the wound, which builds new layers of healthy skin cells. The micro-channels that are created offer optimal opportunities for better absorption of therapeutic serums.
