COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY
Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is also known as Medical or Dermal Needling. Pioneered by Environ Founder Dr Des Fernandes, this treatment uses tiny needles to penetrate the skins surface, resulting in bleeding.
Who is a candidate?
Collagen Induction Therapy is suitable for all skin types and ages. Ideal candidates are those who wish to slow the onset of the aging process, acne scarring, rosacea and skin laxity. Smoothing fine lines and wrinkles is a want for everyone.
It is important that you are preparing your skin with Vitamin A for 2 weeks prior to treatment.
Advantages to skin needling
There is no damage to the skin and it protects the epidermis and promotes natural collagen synthesis.
The needles penetrate the skins surface resulting in bleeding. This releases the platelets which in turn release growth factors that renew collagen.In the dermis the fibroblast cells produce collagen, elastin and GAGS (glycosaminoglycans).
What to expect during the treatment?
The therapist will make sure you are comfortable and will begin to cleanse and sterilise the skin. We will treat the face in sections with the needling. After the full face has been done, we will then infuse peptides, that have a stimulating effect on the collagen, with our DF Machine, resulting in stronger, healthier skin.
After the treatment
After the procedure the skin will feel sensitive and warm. You will be able to go back to work but it will look as if you are sunburnt. We will recommend products to be used post treatment that will enhance the effects of the needling.
No make up is to be applied for 8 - 12 hours after the procedure
No sun exposure for 12 - 24 hours
No excessive exercise for 6 - 12 hours
No hair removal for 2 days after
Cost and how many?
A course of treatments are 4-6 sessions, 1 per week/ fortnight, depending on what we are treating.
The cost per treatment varies. Time to allow is 2 hours per treatment
This includes CIT treatment and DF peptide Infusion.
We will be offering payment plans with this treatment. Please talk to your therapist to arrange this.
