Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT or skin needling) is a way to rejuvenate facial skin without damaging the epidermis. This is done under general or local anaesthetic by cosmetic surgeons and dermatologists. This procedure holds great promise in rejuvenating both the face and other areas of the body. The procedure has been compared to laser resurfacing which destroys the epidermis to make facial skin look smoother.
Skin needling provides an alternative which does not permanently damage the epidermis.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment is often given in conjunction with Collagen Induction Therapy at our clinic in order to boost the new collagen formation and thus enhance facial rejuvenation.
