Collagen Induction Therapy
Know the Facts
Many refer to this treatment as CIT as Micro-Needling, Derma-Rolling or Dermal Needling. It is a treatment that involves a device that creates thousand of micro-channels in the skin.
This "injury" is used to induce regeneration via the wound healing cascade.
Can your skin benefit from Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) -
Do you have any of these skin issues?
~ Premature Aging
~ Laxity & Thin Skin
~ Poor Texture
~ Scars (acne or other causes)
~ Stretch Marks
What makes CIT different than other rejuvenation treatments?
The epidermis (outermost layer of skin) is preserved and thickened over time. This literally improves the health of your skin. It is the regenerative healing of this treatment which stimulates natural collagen to form. Improvement is progressive in nature which puts no limit on how many treatments you can have. Minimally invasive and no "down-time". Imperative that proper products are used before, during and after treatment. Results rival laser resurfacing.

Why is AnteAGE® MD w/ Stem Cytokines™ so important in the micro-needling process? There is a very in-depth scientific explanation. We will skip that part. We want to induce the denturing of collagen that is soft, supple, supportive and smooth. In essence - non-inflammatory and natural. When there is inflammation present we get cicatricial, "scar-collagen" which is often seen with thermal injury (laser resurfacing) to the skin. This product helps to decrease chronic inflammation in the skin, if used daily. Chronic inflammation can be caused from a number of things including sun exposure and toxins. It is associated with aging, cancer, fibrosis and hyper/hypo pigmentation. The collagen in the chronically inflamed skin can become stiff and inelastic. We want to signal new collagen to form without the inflammation.
PRP - Platelet Rich Plasma
Micro-Needling w/ PRP
PRP is blood (your own) which is drawn then spun down in a centrifuge. The red blood cells are separated from your plasma. The plasma is then introduced to your skin via a facial or micro-needling. The biggest issue with PRP is that is is highly inflammatory. So it does not make sense to induce injury which starts the inflammation cascade, then add more inflammation with the platelet rich plasma. It does stimulate growth factors which are essential in healing. We want to keep inflammation to a minimum so your skin creates nice, healthy, non-inflammatory collagen. This is not a service that I offer here nor plan to in the future.
