What is Collagen Induction Therapy?
As we get older, our skin loses condition and can take on a dull sometimes sagging appearance. Luckily, these days there are many treatments we can use to re-invigorate the texture of our skin. At Refresh Dental Spa we recommend Collagen Induction therapy!
CIT is a procedure which uses micro-needling to reinvigorate collagen production in the skin and helps to transform its appearance.
One of our trained therapists will assess your skin for suitability and then arrange a two hour appointment for the first treatment. Your skin is thoroughly cleansed and topical anaesthetic (numbing cream) is applied. Hyaluronic acid gel solution is then gently placed onto the skin and a micro-needling device (Dermastamp) creates tiny punctures for the product to get into the dermis.
The entire process allows neo-collagenesis or new collagen and elastin fibres to grow and improves the blood supply to the area. The skin feels a little flushed for 24-48 hours and then starts to improve in texture and appearance.
After just one relaxing treatment, your skin will begin to look more hydrated and firmer! Acne and scar tissue can also be treated with this procedure. We recommend approximately three treatments 3-6 weeks apart in order to achieve that firmer, more youthful “glow” and to apply sunscreen and only mineral make-up for the first 24-48 hours.
So call the Refresh Dental Spa team to book a consultation appointment today. Your skin will thank you!
