Collagen Induction Therapy
Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is a highly effective and safe treatment for wrinkles, scars, stretch marks and general skin rejuvenation. As one of Johannesburg’s leading specialists, I can assist you to regain a youthful complexion and give your confidence a boost using a combination of high-tech microneedling devices.
The deeper layers of skin are gently treated by creating vertical ‘micro-injuries’ using state-of-the-art computerised micro equipment which use sterile micro-needle cartridges. The controlled micro-injuries created in turn safely trigger a cascade of the body’s natural self-repair healing response mechanisms that result in collagen synthesis (release of growth hormones). This response synthesis results in the body regenerating and building normal healthy collagen, elastin, fibroblasts and other skin structures, effectively replacing damaged tissues.
CIT is a highly effective and safe treatment for wrinkles, scars, stretch marks and general skin rejuvenation. When treated correctly, CIT does not pose any risk of permanent scarring. This highly specialised treatment allows specific medical grade topical active protocols to penetrate deeper into the layers of the skin to further boost results.
The result is smoother, firmer, younger looking skin. Scars experience a tissue rejuvenation response – resulting in the apparent fading of scars. In the unlikely event that a scar stubbornly remains white, the natural skin colour may be matched and pigment implanted into the upper dermal layer of the scar, thereby ‘colouring’ or camouflaging the scar – resulting a more even-textured appearance.
Generally we receive reports of around a spectacular 50% average improvement visible after just 1 treatment!
CIT is a safe and simple treatment for both women and men of all ages and ethnicities.
