When it comes to skin rejuvenation treatments, treatments that create natural results with no extensive surgery or downtime are becoming increasingly popular. At Skin Spa Medical, we utilize the benefits of Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) with hyaluronic acid to refresh and revitalize the skin.
Skin Spa Medical is located in Wellesley Hills, Massachusetts. Contact us today to schedule a consultation with our medical team and find out how Collagen Induction Therapy with hyaluronic acid can improve your aging or damaged skin.
What is Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT)?
One of the least invasive methods to rejuvenate the skin, Collagen Induction Therapy uses a pen-like device with multiple tiny, sterile needles in the tip. When moved across the skin, the needles penetrate to a specific depth underneath the skin surface, creating microchannels.
These microscopic punctures, while invisible to the naked eye, stimulate the body’s natural healing process in a technique called Collagen Induction Therapy. Collagen, the protein responsible for providing strength and structure to the skin, decreases production as the skin ages, causing skin to become lax and lose volume. Collagen Induction Therapy with CIT not only renews collagen production within the skin, it also strengthens existing collagen fibers to tighten treated areas.
What Does Collagen Induction Therapy Treat?
Collagen Induction Therapy can help treat a variety of skin conditions, including:
- Acne or surgical scarring
- Lines, wrinkles, and visible signs of aging
- Texture irregularities
- Enlarged pores
- Stretch marks
This treatment is comfortable and does not typically cause pain or bleeding. Unlike other skin rejuvenation treatments, CIT does not contain harsh exfoliants and will not irritate the skin.
Collagen Induction Therapy with Hyaluronic Acid
At Skin Spa Medical, we also utilize hyaluronic acid with our Collagen Induction Therapy treatments. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body and gives the skin natural plumpness and volume. CIT provides gentle exfoliation to the skin, allowing it to better absorb products. When applied topically after a CIT session, hyaluronic acid hydrates, nourishes and helps revitalize the skin.
When Will I See Results?
Although some patients notice improvements in the glow and feel of the skin after Collagen Induction Therapy, it takes time for the skin to renew collagen and resurface the skin. Full results may take several weeks or a few months to become completely noticeable, and your smoother, softer skin can be long-lasting when paired with a good skincare regimen.
