Microneedling also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenating procedure that stimulates your skins natural ability to heal it's self, transforming blemished and damaged tissue into smoother, clearer more vibrant skin. CIT treatments help to minimize the signs of aging by improving the appearance of sun damage, loose skin, fine lines, wrinkles, and scars on the face and body. Here at Stellar Skin Studio this treatment includes the use of a growth factor/stem cell serum and LED to aid in the healing process which help bring back a healthy glow to the skins appearance.
What are the benefits of CIT?
The resulting benefits of CIT include the softening of fine lines & wrinkles, restoration of skin tightness & elasticity, reduction of pigmentation & acne scarring and improvement of stretch marks.
Does CIT hurt?
A numbing cream is used to minimize discomfort to the client.
Is there downtime?
Clients experience little downtime. Skin may appear sunburnt for 1-3 days with mild peeling after.
How many treatments will I need?
It is recommended most clients receive a series of 3 treatments, however some clients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo aging (sun damage), stretch marks or acne scars may require 6-8 sessions. CIT can be safely repeated every 4-6 weeks until the desired results are achieved.
