Needling or CIT (collagen induction therapy) is very effective in treating wrinkles, loose skin, skin aging, stretch marks (striae distensiae) cellulite, hyperpigmentation and scars.
All parts of the body including the face as well as all skin types can be safely treated with this technique. The results can be seen with as little as one treatment, but 3 to 6 treatments are usually recommended to better achieve the average patients goals.
The device consists of a roller with up to 200 needles attached to it in an evenly spaced and perpendicular manner. The therapist applies pressure and rolls the device over the treated area to penetrate the associated dermis thousands of times with the needles.
This in turn induces an "avalanche" of collagen production within the dermis, resulting in skin tightening and stretch mark diminishment. This process is often referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT)
There are no known significant risks of skin damage with needling treatments since the outer layer of the skin remains intact with this methodology and when performed in conjunction with antioxidant vitamin A and C , the penetration of these substances is vastly increased.
