Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT)

also known as ‘Micro-needling’ or ‘Derma pen’ is a non-surgical, natural cosmetic procedure used for skin regeneration and rejuvenation. It improves the vitality, volume, elasticity, and texture of your skin, effectively slowing the ageing process.

Love the skin you're in!

Every treatment nurtures & strengthens the structure and health of the skin, via the action of fibroblasts and other physiological pathways. It is ideal for those looking for a natural skin renewal treatment as well as those looking to compliment procedures like Botox, fillers, and laser.

The Medicine of Lifestyle, Gold Coast

CIT supports with the treatment of:

  • Fine lines & wrinkles

  • Sun damage & uneven skin texture

  • Enlarged pores & acne scarring

  • Loose & sluggish skin

  • Stretch marks / scarring from surgery

  • Fragile skin with a damaged capillary network.

How does it work?

  • Your therapist gently moves the micro-needling pen over your skin creating thousands of micro channels/injuries to stimulate your skin’s natural wound healing response. Fibroblasts activate to repair the ‘controlled wound’, releasing growth factors and new collagen & elastin fibres.

  • The skin's over all structure, function and appearance is strengthened and renewed.

  • Only single-use sterile micro-needle cartridges are used, and strict infection control guidelines are followed.

Does it hurt and is there any down time?

  • No, it doesn’t. A Topical Local Anaesthetic (TLA) is applied to ensure there is no discomfort. Our pharmacist will cross check medications and prescribe a TLA suitable for you.

  • After your treatment your skin will look and feel like it has been slightly sunburnt (erythema). It is important to leave your skin clear of any products other than what is administered in your consultation. You will be able to wear make up the following morning.

How many treatments do you need?

  • This depends on your age and the condition of your skin.

  • Those who smoke and drink frequently will need more treatments.

  • 35+ years and over and sun damaged skin requires > 3-4 treatments at 4-week intervals.

  • Scarred skin > 8 – 12 treatments at 4-week intervals.

What happens in a treatment?

  • Your prescription TLA is applied.

  • Your face + neck + body of the décolletage are gently micro-needled.

  • The treatment concludes with LED Light Therapy, while you receive Connective Tissue Therapy.
