What is Dermapen-Collagen Induction Therapy?
Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) or skin rolling is a treatment to restore collagen and elastin through a natural healing process. Ultra fine, medical quality needles attached to a cylindrical roller create multiple skin punctures that induce a wound healing response and the release of growth factors to stimulate new collagen and elastin production. This improves your skin quality and texture, making the skin firmer and smoother and help to repair acne scars, fine wrinkles and uneven skin texture. Once initiated this new collagen production can continue for up to 12 months, resulting in an improvement in skin firmness and texture and a softening and lifting of scars and wrinkles. Most importantly skin needling involves minimal down time so is a great alternative to VPL/Laser
This is one of the latest non-invasive and non-injectable skin rejuvenation system to reduce scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and pore minimisation. For anti-aging purposes, it has a superior effect on collagen and elastin rejuvenation. The Dermapen has revolutionised micro skin needling, making it easier, safer and less painful to achieve maximum results comparing with tradition method of skin needling. The results are more extraordinary, longer lasting and treatment time is quicker, making this a top choice for those wanting to achieve younger, smoother skin.
