Collagen Induction Therapy :


Collagen induction therapy (CIT) is a minimally-invasive procedure that aims to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars by stimulating existing collagen and elastin. IT, also known as microneedling, has become quite popular with both patients and clinicians, because it is safe and effective.


Microneedling works by encouraging your skin to make more collagen. The idea is that pinpricks from the procedure cause slight injury to the skin and that the skin responds by making new collagen-rich tissue.

Collagen induction therapy is appropriate for women and men who:

  • Are looking for skin rejuvenation. Often that includes reducing signs of aging such as facial fine lines and wrinkles.

  • Desire a non-surgical, non-invasive, or minimally invasive alternative – but want safe, effective results.

The procedures are short, and there’s virtually no downtime. Repeat sessions are separated by 4-6 weeks, so scheduling is convenient.

During the procedure, your doctor makes small pricks under the skin with a pen-like tool. The pinpricks are so small that you likely won’t notice them after the procedure. Your doctor will move the tool evenly across your skin so that the new skin that rejuvenates will be even, too.

Before getting started, your doctor will use a topical anesthesia cream to reduce the chances of pain.

Microneedling is most often used on your face to target:

  • acne scars

  • age spots (also called “sun spots”)

  • fine lines and wrinkles

  • large pores

  • other types of scarsTrusted Source

  • reduced skin elasticity

  • uneven skin tone
