Collagen Induction Therapy | Microneedling
Microneedling is a skin treatment that uses tiny needles to create thousands of micro-injuries in the skin. This triggers the body to produce new collagen and elastin, which can improve the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. Microneedling can also help improve the absorption of skin care products such as retinol and others.
What To Expect With Microneedling
If you’re considering micro-needling, it’s important to consult with a qualified professional to determine if this treatment is right for you.
Make sure to avoid sun exposure before and after your treatment, and be prepared for some mild redness and swelling. Most people see results after a few sessions, however, results do vary based on what each person does after treatment.
How Effective Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a relatively new treatment, so long-term risks and side effects are not yet known. However, the procedure is considered safe when performed by a qualified professional such as those at Stunning Beauty Med Spa.
If you’re looking for a way to improve the appearance of your skin, whether it be wrinkles, acne scars, or discoloration, micro-needling may be worth considering.

Collagen Induction Therapy
How often do you look in the mirror and notice that pesky scar, those new wrinkles, or the large pores on your face? Chances are you have at least one mark on your body that you don’t like. Don’t lose heart! There’s a simple procedure called collagen induction therapy (CIT) that can help to smooth, tone, and brighten your skin. From stretch mark treatment to wrinkle reduction, CIT can help your body heal itself.
WHAT IS COLLAGEN?
Collagen comes from the Greek word for glue, and it literally holds our bodies together. It’s the most common protein in the human body. Collagen provides strength and cushioning to many parts of the body, including the skin. But collagen breaks down as we age, causing our skin to wrinkle and sag. Scientists and medical professionals have discovered ways of replacing aging collagen and using collagen to regenerate skin tissue to heal wounds and minimize scars.
THE MAGIC OF COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY
We all know about the importance of helping our bodies have more collagen. The cosmetics industry has developed hundreds of specialty types of collagen to help remedy our aging collagen. However, imagine if we could get our bodies to make their own collagen! That’s the magic of collagen induction therapy.
Also called micro-needling, collagen induction therapy is a minimally invasive procedure performed within a medical context. It’s a relatively painless process, which involves puncturing the skin (usually on the face) with microneedles. As a result, the skin produces dramatic amounts of its own collagen. CIT can also induce the body to produce elastin, another protein in the body that creates elasticity in the skin. Through micro-needling, skin revives itself from the inside out, prompting the body to return to its youthful state.
In CIT, each patient is treated with their own individual microneedles, ensuring safety and sterility. The skin is sterilized and numbed before treatment, creating a pain-free process. Although you may notice a slight pink coloration on the skin the day after the procedure, this is a sign that your body is busy regenerating its own collagen.
THE BENEFITS OF COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY
Collagen induction therapy can benefit you, regardless of your age, gender, or skin type. If you are experiencing the effects of aging skin with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, you’re probably looking for wrinkle treatment. CIT can help smooth and tighten the areas where your collagen is breaking down.
Perhaps you have scarring from acne. Even if your acne scarring is deep, micro-needling is a very effective way of causing your skin to produce more collagen, healing the pocks on your face, and reducing your acne scars. If you struggle with larger pores, you should consider CIT, which can help plump the skin around the pores, causing them to close up. CIT can even help reverse the effects of discoloration from stretch marks, sun-damaged skin, and the brown, blotchy hyperpigmentation associated with melasma. CIT may also cause your skincare products to be more effective as it creates small holes in your skin that can better soak up the lotions, serums, and creams you are using.
