The term Collagen Induction Therapy Treatment is used for defining a micro-needling or medical skin needling process that is safe and also non-surgical. It is a minor process that is done on the skin and also referred to as CIT. This collagen treatment helps in softening lines and furrows on the face. During the process, tiny quantities of collagen are injected into your face, especially under lines or scars. The entire ordeal is done using very fine needles and once injected it helps in boosting the skin's natural collagen. To ensure that you are able to maintain this, a smaller amount of 'top-up' collagen is given too. A cosmetologist undertakes this procedure.
The collagen treatment for face takes about 20-30 minutes, including the time taken to wait. Considering that there is no hospitalisation required, you don't have to worry about additional waiting. Besides this, you have to go for the follow-up or top-up treatment 2-3 times a year that takes lesser time too. The collagen induction therapy cost depends on the amount of collagen required and the repetitions as well.
After the collagen treatment has been done, you will notice that your skin starts to appear visibly younger and radiant. The fine lines and scars disappear or lighten within a day or two of the treatment - giving you a youthful appearance.
