Micro-needling OR ECIT - Electro Collagen Induction Therapy
I DO NOT use a DERMA ROLLER
This method is virtually pain-free as I use a BLT numbing cream and because it is not damaging to the skin, you'll be able to get back to your normal routine within 24-48 hours.
Electric Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is also referred to as Micro Needling
Micro Needling is an electric pen that is a collagen remodeling and skin rejuvenation treatment, using a fractional delivery of needles making micro injuries to the epidermis. These micro injuries cause a cascade of events stimulating the regrowth of your skin.
Micro Needling can be used to treat your face, neck, chest, arms, legs and other areas of the body.
The treatment is relatively painless, but numbing cream is provided and recommended on more sensitive areas like eyes and upper lip. Are you ready to try something new, and rejuvenate your face? Schedule a CIT appointment and let’s see what transformations we can make in your future!
Choose from Age Management , Scar Revision, or Stretch Mark treatments. Unlike other practitioners we use 3 types of Serums to treat the skin. We do not stop at Hylauronic Acid!
Our treatments are conducted with a Pen and NOT Dermarolling. We also DO NOT return needling tips post treatment to our clients nor will we re-use needling tips from other clients.
We WILL NOT needle open sores, active acne skin or over skin that is compromised in any way due to health issues. We also do NOT needle those who are pregnant or lactating.
Pre-treatment photos are a required element of this treatment.
