There are many new things that will come about this year. For one, and what I am most excited about, is the introduction of Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). I am also excited to introduce my new Medical Director, Douglas Perkins, MD. Dr. Perkins and I will be collaborating to create individualized programs that are not only cutting edge, but effective. For starters, Celebrity Skin is now offering CIT. Great for fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks and overall skin rejuvenation. Need I say more?!
Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is also referred to as Micro Needling
Micro Needling is an electric pen that is a collagen remodeling and skin rejuvenation treatment, using a fractional delivery of needles making micro injuries to the epidermis. These micro injuries cause a cascade of events stimulating the regrowth of your skin.
Benefits of CIT / Micro Needling
- Fast and cost effective alternative to laser resurfacing for the treatment of wrinkles, acne scarring, stretch marks and reduction of large, visible pores.
- It is less painful and incurs less downtime – if any at all (as compared to traditional skin needling)
- Disposable needles/no cross- contamination
- Effectively treats hard-to-reach areas like around the eyes and nose
- It is gentle enough that it can be used for all skin types and colors
- Collagen Induction Therapy improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Overall skin rejuvenation
FAQ about Micro Needling (CIT)
For best results it is recommended to have a series of treatments, ideally spaced two weeks apart. Each Collagen Induction Therapy treatment includes Microdermabrasion and Vitamin/Phyto-Nutrient Infusion to maximize healing.
The treatment is relatively painless, but numbing cream is provided and recommended on more sensitive areas like eyes and upper lip. It is necessary that you show up 45 minutes prior to your appointment time to fill out consent forms and allow the numbing cream to become fully effective.
