Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT)
Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the improvement of the skin’s texture, tone and color. During this procedure, the MicroPen is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to aid in the production of collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker epidermis with a softer appearance of wrinkles.
What are the benefits?
Reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, improved skin tone and texture and softer, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. Collagen Induction Therapy can also improve the appearance of hyper-pigmentation as well as uneven skin tone, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks.
What areas of the body can I treat?
MicroPen can be used on all parts of the body; face, neck, decollete, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back.
What is the downtime?
Immediately after your treatment, you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the depth of needles used and the number of overlapping passes your skin care professional performs. On average, patients are red for 2-4 days. Some patients heal completely in 24 hours.
When will I see results?
Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks. Results can continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues.
Some patients only require a single treatment once a year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars, it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6 week intervals.
Dermaplaning is an exfoliating treatment that provides an alternative to chemical peels or microdermabrasion and is a good choice for anyone who has fine facial hair, extremely sensitive skin, rosacea, or visible facial veins. The Dermaplaning treatment is performed with a surgical blade to gently exfoliate the outer layer of dead skin cells and remove fine facial hair commonly known as “peach fuzz”. A noticeable improvement is immediate with smoother texture and a vibrant skin appearance. Hair returns softly and will not become coarser because of the treatment. In appropriate skin types, a chemical peel done immediately after Dermaplaning is an excellent way to make sure that the peel penetrates deeper and more evenly. Some benefits include; Increase absorption of topical products, Immediate softening of fine lines and wrinkles, and creates a healthier and more radiant skin.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Collagen Induction Therapy, when performed with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), enhances the treatment by delivering your own blood-derived growth factors for healthy cell production and repair of damaged tissues. The Collagen Induction Therapy treatment with PRP causes a release of at least 8 essential natural growth factors from your own body. This causes a natural and healthy production of new collagen and elastin which is what creates that youthful appearance. One to three vials of your blood are drawn and the platelets are separated in a centrifuge. The skin is bathed in PRP during Collagen Induction Therapy and can even be injected to further stimulate collagen production. If combined with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), obtained by drawing your blood and extracting the nutrient rich platelets, the effects of rejuvenation are enhanced exponentially. PRP has been used for years to heal wounds and for other purposes. Today, PRP therapies are also available for facial rejuvenation and other areas of aesthetic medicine.

A chemical peel is a solution that is applied to the face that removes skin cells and stimulates the production of new ones. Each chemical peel is specifically tailored to the patient’s skin and their concern.
