One of the main factors that impacts the youthfulness and firmness of the skin is collagen. As you get older, collagen production slows, and the skin is less resilient. Lines and wrinkles form, scars are more pronounced and the skin becomes less elastic. Collagen induction therapy, or CIT, with micro needling can improve the appearance of the skin, available at Timeless MedSpa NYC.
What Is CIT, or Micro Needling?
Collagen is an integral part of the skin structure and necessary for repair or healing. When the skin is younger, it has plenty of collagen available to repair damage and keep the skin firm and elastic. As you age, less collagen is made, and the skin becomes thinner and loses its elasticity. Injury or damage to the skin can induce collagen production, which is how CIT or micro needling is used in cosmetic skin treatments.
Micro needling uses tiny needles to penetrate the skin. These micro needles do not damage the skin, but the body responds to the perceived injury by stimulating collagen production in the skin. At Timeless MedSpa NYC, we use micro needling as a collagen induction therapy to increase the healing response in the targeted areas of the skin to improve the appearance. CIT can be combined with other treatments like PRP facials to deliver healing serums deeper into the skin for incredible results. Some of the benefits of micro needling include:
- Reduced crow’s feet around the eyes
- Smoothing brow and smile lines
- Improved skin tone and texture
- Reduced sun damage
- Faded acne or other facial scars
Micro needling is best completed in a series of treatments to increase collagen production. The results are gradual as the collagen increases, and the healing response firms and repairs the skin. Patients enjoy the benefits of skin that looks younger and healthier, with natural, discreet results.
If you are interested in improving the firmness, texture and tone of your skin for a more youthful appearance, micro needling may be right for you. Contact us at Timeless MedSpa NYC to schedule a skin consultation to discuss CIT at our UES clinic.
