Collagen Induction Therapy / Dermapen

Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) works by stimulating your own body’s collagen. Your body will start to naturally regenerate the skin working below the surface in the dermis. New skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced. It will only take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration are seen and the process will continue over the following months, providing you with a gradual and long lasting enhancement.

Treating Wrinkles With Dermapen

The first signs of aging skin are in general, the formation of fine lines, especially around the eyes and upper lip. The scale layers of the epidermis become thinner and harder and its previous transparency starts to fade. The dermis is losing its elasticity by degrading elastin and hardening collagen fibers. The cells of the sub dermal tissue start to shrink and in addition the skin faces a dramatic moisture loss. All these factors form the degrading process of our skin
What can be done to stop this degradation? The answer is cell regeneration! This can be achieved with the Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). The CIT is a simple procedure by microneedling the skin with the Medical Dermapen. The concept of micro needling is based on the skin's ability to heal itself whenever it encounters physical injury. As the dermapen moves across the skin it makes pinpoint punctures to create very minor micro "injuries". In response to the perceived injury, growth factors are released which in turn triggers new collagen synthesis, restoring the appearance of healthy skin.

The number of treatments varies with the area and condition treated. For best results a course of treatments is required. Facial rejuvenation usually requires four to six treatments at intervals of four weeks. Acne scarring and stretch marks will require more treatments, as advised by your clinician. You may require regular maintenance every six to twelve months.
