Collagen Induction Therapy
Skin needling therapy is also known as collagen induction therapy. It works by injecting Hyaluronic acid into the skin with micro-needles to stimulate the body’s natural collagen synthesis.
Ultimately, it all comes down to restoring collagen.
What Is Collagen?
Collagen is the framework of the skin. It is part of an
underlying layer that holds the skin in shape. As we age, collagen levels deplete. The body still has the ability to produce collagen but does so at a reduced rate. This leads to wrinkles forming as the structure collapses. Skin needling piques collagen production to restore the skin’s strong framework and repair wrinkles.
What Can Skin Needling Treat?
Restoring collagen production to a higher rate reverses the effect of aging on skin structure. This is useful for treating all kinds of wrinkles, including:
- Crow’s feet
- Frown line
- Upper lip creases and sides of mouth
Aside from wrinkles, CIT also improves youthful skin elasticity. This helps treat loss of elasticity in the cheek and jawline. The micro-needlings also stimulate the body’s natural self-repair system, which treats damage and scarring caused by acne and chickenpox.
