Collagen Induction Therapy – Skin Needling

Collagen Induction Therapy – Skin Needling

Collagen Induction Therapy

Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), commonly known as skin needling or micro-needling, is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure.  The treatment has grown in popularity over the past few years. When performed correctly, results can be truly remarkable.

The science behind this modality is strong, gentle and controlled piercing of the skin’s uppermost layers results in a cascade of activity from stem cells being released causing instant healing.  This leads to collagen production (and ultimately less wrinkles), and healthier, more radiant skin.

Results can be seen in as little as 14 days post treatment, however most dramatic results will occur 6-12 weeks following treatment.

Most clients will experience pin point bleeding during and immediately after a skin needling session. Post treatment erythema (redness) will be evident and may appear similar to a mild sunburn. A post treatment skin care product will be prescribed for you to purchase in order to assist with skin hydration and accelerate your results.

You will need between 3 and 6 treatments to achieve optimal results.

Collagen Induction Therapy can assist with the following:

  • Reduced fine lines
  • Minimise enlarged pores
  • Improve acne scarring
  • Reduce pigmentation
  • Improve clarity & tone
  • Refine texture
  • Improve firmness

At New You Aesthetics, we use advanced technology and stem cell therapy to provide you amazing results whatever your skin condition or concerns.

Skin needling is performed using a hydrating serum to help improve the hydration of the skin and overall quality of the results. If you are getting your skin ready for a special event or wish for a more premium treatment, we offer a choice of two add-ons as an alternative to the hydration serum.

  1. Stem Cell therapy: Using AnteAGE Micro-needling Solution contains pro-healing, anti-inflammatory growth factors and cytokines derived from laboratory culture of human bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells.  Extensive research in to the science of stem cells has determined that these specialized cells are superior in the healing of all injured tissues. The stem cells and cytokines are in a base of hyaluronic acid which provides lubrication and is a powerful humectant that promotes rapid re-hydration and volume enhancement within the upper layers of the skin.
  2. Skin Boosters: These are hyaluronic acid dermal fillers delivered by micro-injections via our Dermal Pen to increase the skin’s hydration quality. They naturally smooth and hydrate the skin from the inside and give the skin a natural and beautiful glow. This non-surgical, minimally invasive option will restore, re-hydrate and rejuvenate the skin.
