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.

Benefits of CIT
Our quality imported microneedling equipment uses sterile precision multi-needle cartridges which operates quickly (to reduce treatment time) and clinically at high speed which relieves discomfort while effectively delivering the best possible results.
The multiple needle configurations are adjusted according to the specific area being treated (capacity between 0.25mm and 2mm) - all treatments are tailored to each individual's outcome specifications. For example, treatments around the delicate eye areas will be decreased to between 0.25mm to 0.4mm. However when treating acne scars on say the cheek area, the pen will be adjusted to between 1mm and 2mm in order to reach and treat the damaged layers of skin. For general skin rejuvenation, pigmentation or sun spots, 0.5mm to 0.7mm will deliver the best results. The high quality of our equipment creates high speed electric vibrations which ensures prime efficacy of treatments that are easily tolerated, especially when treating stretch marks.

Comfort & Convenient
The needles only penetrate the epidermal layer, therefore the structure of the skin is not damaged or scarred in any way. The epidermis heals in a matter of hours. Your comfort is ensured throughout the procedure with the application of the best safe imported topical numbing solutions.
The initial skin reaction is similar to the appearance of moderate sunburn which disappears within 24 to 48 hours. As the healing takes place within a matter of hours, the treatment is not only very effective but also safe, with very few cases reporting side effects. Your gift bag contains an aftercare leaflet with important home care information, will be explained, and a healing balm applied for a few days post-procedure.
An aftercare organza gift bag is included, containing important post-procedure instructions - this is also explained in full and a healing balm applied for 10 to 21 days post-procedure.
