Microneedling

What is Collagen Induction Therapy?

Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is a minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment designed to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, tighten skin, as well as reduce scars on the face and body. The treatment uses tiny needles on a medical-grade device that is moved over the skin to create a controlled injury. This process turns on the body’s natural wound healing response to stimulate growth factor production and create new collagen.

Why choose CIT at Rejuvenation Esthetics Studio?
