Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT)
Collagen is one of the key factors in maintaining youthful skin. Lower levels of collagen as you get older directly impact the elasticity and volume of the skin. As your skin loses collagen, it becomes thinner and less firm. Lines and wrinkles appear quicker, and the skin can begin to sag. One of the best ways to slow the skin aging process is to stimulate collagen production. At Timeless MedSpa NYC, we offer med spa options for collagen induction therapy (CIT) at our beautiful clinic in UES Manhattan.
There are several ways to increase collagen in the skin. Whenever the skin is damaged, it produces collagen to repair the skin. The key is to not actually damage the skin but to trigger this response. Skin treatments like laser therapy, chemical peels and even some dermal filler injections can stimulate collagen production. Laser energy and radiofrequency energy create a thermal response in the skin that can increase collagen production. While there are many ways to stimulate facial collagen, one of the most effective types of collagen induction therapy (CIT) is micro needling treatments.
Micro Needling for CIT
Micro needling treatment uses tiny needles to pierce the skin, causing the “damage” needed to spark collagen production. This form of collagen induction therapy is very effective for stimulating repair of the skin without damaging the skin. Micro needling can be used on its own or in conjunction with other skin therapies like PRP injections or radiofrequency treatments that can boost the healing response.
CIT is used to improve the overall appearance of the skin, especially for individuals wanting a more youthful appearance. As the collagen levels increase, the skin becomes firmer with better texture and tone, minimizing lines, wrinkles, scars and sagging. A series of CIT is recommended to obtain the desired results with a maintenance schedule to keep skin appearing youthful.
If your skin is showing signs of aging, collagen induction therapy, or CIT, can help improve the tone, texture and firmness.
